Hi I have flown them and the seats are quite comfortable. There is a drink and light food service menu - yes you do pay for what you order. I still think it is worth it!

don't forget, water adds weight to the takeoff weight of the plane therefore using up more jet fuel, therefore they have to recover the costs as it is a budget airline.

If I take a big whiz before boarding, will I get a water discount?

The money involved in providing catering (food & refreshment) runs in the millions annually. You would be amazed as to how much is thrown out. Low cost carriers do not have catering facilities of their own, thus have to pre-purchase or agree to pre-purchase certain quanities of food/refreshment that usually ends up being thrown out. Bring your own H2O, its cheaper!! OR pay the extra and fly one of the major airlines. Some how it doesn't quite seem worth it! :wink:

FYI: Hubby is involved in the airline business. But then who in Singapore isn't!?!?!
