Tiger Airways was chosen for the price, Departure and arrival was ontime. On Board service was buy-on-board. Being flown domestically these aircraft do not have any inflight entertainment. Inflight magazine was provided for reading. Overall a satisfactory flight.

So... whatever happened to your window seat? :O How did you end up in the middle seat?
That might explain why LATAM has kept their tray tables even after they replaced their meal service with a lousy cup of water.
Thanks for sharing! :)
