I’ve been going to Singapore for work every single month since late 2007. I’ve travelled in Aeroline. First Coach, Malaysian Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia. This time I travelled in JetStar, another budget/low cost flight provider. JetStar originated from Australia.
What I liked about JetStar is that it departs from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) rather than the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT). I don’t really prefer the LCCT, it looks more like a factory warehouse turned into an airport in a rush.
If I were to compare JetStar and AirAsia in terms of comfort and services, both are quite similar. The aeroplane seatings are 3 seats on the right and 3 seats on the left. Leg space is quite limited, so if the 2 people sitting from the window need to go to the washroom, at least 1 person have to get up to allow them to go out. Limited leg room is not an issue
since the time spent sitting in the aeroplane is less than 1 hour.
Here are some photos taken before or during my flight to Singapore in JetStar.

Everything that is green in this photo are palm oil plantations!
I have no idea where this is, it is so densely populated that there are hardly any trees left!
I can see land, sea, ships and suns reflection on water. a nice view
I love the way the river has carved it's way through land
