SEA Air = TIGER (of Singapore)

Can anyone verify that the SEA Air franchise will be operated by the LCC Tiger Airways of Singapore?
Is this the rumored Tiger Airways base in Clark?

BTW, I read they need pilots below 40 years old? Is this for both Capt & F/O requirements? That's weird?

would be extremely tough to get Capts younger than 40. hope thats just for the FOs. also Tiger is reportedly leaving sing-Clark for sing-Manila. could be that seair will be the one to continue operating clark-singapore?

can somebody say what the heck seair is up to trying to get into the a320 game? they simply have no one in their ranks that can do it. no pilots, no engineers. 5J and airphil are going to eat them alive....

The question is do they have the bus? if they're buying new ones, then TRE's would be there for sure... but I don't think they're buying new 320's. But even so, is there anyone who've seen their 320's delivered in Manila?

Bird one and two . As if they could afford to buy a newbie.

So is this just Tiger operating on behalf of SEAir?

just doesn't sound right, 2 planes?

i hope your bus is new, coz it's frustrating to see 1 of your 2 planes cannibalized for parts...think about it guys, just 2 planes1 plane gets diverted or AOG, you know what happens next...good luck!

happy with 2 planes in the seair -tiger fleet right now.both 319s, no issues except for some cabin crew seatbelts. otp is 98%, flies 2x daily([email protected] then [email protected]) to sin from cia.7hrs block time/ flight. work 4 days then play 3 days for three weeks then 4th week almost always off otherwise we'd exceed the target 83.3 hrs /month max. can't complain coz i did the 6days/1day off pattern including redeyes in 5j . clark is a great base. no traffic ,cheap rent, diversified food , cheap beer,bike all day and night,green fees 15$ on weekdays,25$ weekends.
45 minutes to subic.

will start clark-hk next month 2x daily and take delivery of 3 more 320s
all of the flight crew(captains averaging 4k hrs on 320s) are ex-5j including ground and cabin staff.
pax load about 85-95% on both flights.

why dont you use your real name "onieangeles" faker?
i know youre fake coz the real onie angeles never asked to be trained on the airbus. but since were talking about his training ,yes he is undergoing training right now for the airbus.it was iren who insisted that he be trained and we obliged happily.
and btw, no ,were not hiring as of yet coz we already have the line-up for the airbus.

i just got back from SIN, rode 4319 and the plane was less than half full. there is NO WAY in hell you have 85% average load hehe. but what's a couple percentage points for accuracy's sake, right?

the fare is a blockbuster though. 5J must be scratching their heads at how you can offer those rates

whenever my day is bad, i look up your posts in PPRuNe. thank you for humoring me all the time LMAO
