    Trip Report : Singapore - Chennai on Tiger Airways


    Airlines: Tiger Airways (TR)
    Flight : TR2636 SIN-MAA
    Reg : 9V-TAQ
    Aircraft: Airbus 320-232
    Departure (SIN) : 2210
    Arrival (MAA) : 2359
    Total time : 04h19m
    Distance : 2914 km or 1811 miles

    Had just arrived on Scoot. Had to collect the bag and checkin for Tiger flight to Chennai. Made the blunder of picking someone else's bag. Had to report at Information counter. Security came with a test kit and did a swab test on the bag. Everything clear, was allowed to enter and get my own bag. A lesson learnt for life - Check the bag before leaving.

    I had 2 1/2hrs before my next flight. Lost about 1hr to retrieve my bag. Requested for Window seat, the flight was full. I was offered middle or aisle seat. Took the aisle offer.

    Check - in for TR



    Was feeling hungry but with little time left for boarding. I decided to check the Sth Indian Restaurant at Terminal 2, just above the TR check-in. Was a long queue at Annapurna, skipped dinner, headed for immigration. No issues here.

    Arrived at the gate, had just bent to tie my shoelace and a guy cut the line. Was annoyed due to earlier incident and I hate this behaviour, calmed myself down as there was not many ahead.

    I was tired after a long flight and was hoping the neighbour doesn't turn up, but that wasn't going to be the case. Lucky the middle seat remained empty.

    My neighbour turned out to be another character, was returning to India after his Work Permit (WP) had expired. When the phones should be shutdown, he kept turning it on. While the flight was taxing, another guy got a call on his mobile. It was an unusual flight, where the steward was a school teacher, enforcing the rule.

    I couldn't speak Tamil, and he had limited English skills. My neighbour kept taking off his seat belt, while the plane was ready to takeoff, had to tell him to wear it.

    When the plane had just taken off, maybe 10 feet from ground, he took off his seat-belt and wanted to go to the toilet. The steward yelled at him to seat down. I told him, he has to wait for few mins. Later when the plane had stablised. he didn't get up for about an hour. I was very tired and hoped the flight ended soon.

    Outside the terminal





    Had to wait at the airport for the next flight. Was hungry, everything had close down. Asked the CISF guys if I there are any shops inside, was told there is a restaurant outside. Didn't want to drag the bag around. Showed my ticket and got inside the waiting area for morning flight to Mumbai.
