Tiger Airlines Rebrands!

"BUDGET carrier Tiger Airways is ditching its famous leaping tiger logo and undergoing a name change as part of a bid to bring the airline into a "new era".

Not sure if it will make much difference!

I think they have nicked half of Jetstar's staff so who knows.

In all honesty I never liked the old logo, and the new one is pretty bland would have been better ditching the "Tiger" altogether to get rid of the old memories in peoples minds.

They could call themselves "cheetah-air" lol

jagjetfly I agree.... if they want to rebrand use a completely new name.

Lots have bad memories of Tiger but lately my experiences are that they have been very punctual and Ive had more delays with Virgin and Jetstar.

Yep the aircraft would go much faster than any other plane but only for a really short period of time.

I'm sure that this gem of a re-brand will massively turn around their ailing fortunes.

Tiger Airways or Tigerair doesn't seem that different so I doubt it'll make much difference.

The first re-branded aircraft hit the news again today. The new branded aircraft's logo started to peel off, with parts of G-E-R coming away from the aircraft. Is everything done on the cheap at TigerAir? They can't even get this right. Sorry for being pessimistic but really, they haven't exactly been convincing over the years and yet to make a profit. Stick on livery!, bad choice.

The greater Singapore Airlines family of airlines is a study in ..... *something* ....

SIA - generally a great airline. But a few strange details.

SilkAir - _____ uninspired middlin' on secondary routes (the reader is left to fill in the blank)?

Tiger - ______ (an unfinished start after all these years. ---blanks still need to be filled in)?

Scoot - _________ (ditto, in its own, same-same but different, way)?

When SIA had offspring, what happened to its genes? Who could write the book - Jimmy Breslin? I wonder if the resultant book would be banned in Singapore but be a best seller in some other countries?

BTW, rebranding won't help with incidents like this:

Actually it does you learn by your mistakes but I still don't think there is enough market to sustain another airline in Aust.

That peel off livery is hilarious. Once bitten, twice shy. I don't care what they now call themselves, I don't trust that airline to get me there on time.
