This is my 5th time flying the Tigerair Taiwan. I did not fly other LCC before, the reason why I choosed LCC was becauae it had more promotion then other airliners. Most of the time the flight waa nearlly fully booked, espwcially nowaday many tours and travel agents booked LCC for better revenue. Tigerair Taiwan allows passenger with 10kg carry-on...

I went to Bangkok Thailand from Haneda airport by Tigerair Taiwan because of their cheap price. Nut in fact it wasn't cheap at all. Because you have to pay other expenses like, the connecting fee, baggage and food. The price of the food compared to other LCC flight such as Air Asia is way too expensive and I didn't find...

Checked my roll aboard @ no cost. This was booked in conjunction with International flights on Cathay Pacific. The crew was friendly and offered items for sale, but I declined. Another uneventful flight.

Booked Tigerair as it was the cheapest option for us to get to Macau. Low cost airline - low class service offer with unfriendly staff.

Just a usual plane ride since this is a LCC i think. Nothing so much special in it and those FA are not wearing a smile to emphasize politeness, generosity and gladness for their passengers.

It's a budget airline so it's simpke and no frills. Plane was quite full and seating tight, but check in was easy, staff friendly, and we left early! Great for a short flight.

You get what you pay for with TigerAir Taiwan. It was cheap, but there is a reason... Seemed to be equipment trouble... Flight was very warm, maybe air conditioner not working, when we landed, we were forced to wait on runway for about 30 minutes until gate to became available. A very loud squealing mechanical noise screeched for the entire...

Very efficient check-in at TPE. Recommend to purchase the tigersmart. Can choose your seat ahead of time and includes a checked bag. No reason to rush off the plane in Macau. All passengers board a bus then taken to terminal. Seats are tight but tolerant for a short 90-minute flight. Overall a good value for a budget airline.

Cost was low. Check-in was not available early enough. Check-in agent was friendly. Boarding area was comfortable. Boarding was via a bus to the airplane. Seats were not that comfortable. Flight attendant service was okay. There were too many rules for takeoff and landing such as the position of the window shade, etc. I know this is for safety but...

Great value & great flight time! Arrived at Osaka at 10:25 AM; back to Taoyuan at 22:40 PM. The only downside was the lack of online check-in (available in Singapore only I think?)
