Standing seats spell low air fare
MELBOURNE: Singapore-owned Tiger Airways will consider introducing a "standing-only" option for passengers in a bid to lower airfares.
The low-cost carrier said it could follow the footsteps of British budget airline Ryanair in introducing a "vertical seating" option.
"We continue to look at ways to make our operations more efficient so we can offer even lower fares than we do now," Tiger Airways director Steve Burns said.
"Everything we do is about offering the lowest possible fare, then allowing our customers to choose what, if any, extras they wish to pay for." -- Bernama
