After 2 days in Phuket on Patong Beach we were ready to go home the long way via SIN, SYD and AKL.

The next morning we took a taxi we ordered from the hotel, the price was horribly high as the hotel takes an excessively huge margin.

We arrived at Phuket Airport very early. The check-in counters are in the Low Cost side of the terminal. The counters weren't opened yet and we waited on chairs that were all stucked together on a far side of the area.

When the counters opened we were number 2 and 3 to check-in. The agent took our bags, no baggage fee as we paid the bag and seat fee on the website.

The agent looks for the boarding cards in a box where all of them are already prepared. They are in alphabetical order. The boarding cards remind me me of the ones I was getting when travelling on UTA in the 70s and 80s when departing from PPT.

We went to the regular terminal to go through immigration and security and waited for boarding.

After a rather long wait in a queue going around the book shop we were invited to go downstairs to take a bus that would take us to our Airbus 319 9V-TRA.

The flight went by smoothly, the cabin crew sold drinks and snack as well as duty free articles. We didn't get anything and I believe they didn't sell much on that rather empty flight.

We arrived and disembarked at the Changi Low Cost terminal.

Conclusion

A flight on a low cost carrier, no meal or anything for free. The crew was very much present in the cabin through the flight. Legroom is tight.
Tiger Airways did what I paid them for, taking me from Phuket to Singapore within a time frame.
