"my knees against her seat"

(United States)

I'm 6'3" tall with a slim build. You would think that check-in staff would take note of that and assign a reasonable seat. Nope, both directions on a SIN-BKK, I get Row 11, one ahead of the exit row, so no recline. And, of course, on one leg of the flight, the woman in the seat in front of me doesn't waste a second in fully reclining her seat. So, basically, I'm wedged with my knees against her seat and my forehead just about touching the back of her headrest for the 2 hour flight. I understand I'm basically flying in a cattle car when I fly the LCC's in Asia. I actually like Tiger. They keep their planes clean, their crews are generally friendly, the flights are generally smooth, and their landings have gotten much smoother. But for the love of God, and the health of my knees, please give me a seat that's not immediately ahead of an exit row!

"nobody can gripe about seats on budget airline"

(Singapore)

Nobody can gripe about seats on a budget airline flight since rates are at almost bottom basement prices. Tigerair does provide a selection of better seats for a small payment. Otherwise, the allocation will be auto based on availability. I paid $4 (one way) to select a window seat. Seat pitch was ok. The seats could be pushed back which helps if you rather be in a slightly angled position. There was no foot rest. But really, it's an extra that is good to have, but still manageable if there isn't one. No pillows were provided, since this is a no frills service. The seats took me to my destination and back, with no physical posture issues.

"has fantastic legroom for economy"

(Australia)

Brisbane to Adelaide on flight TT317 seated in 13A. This is an exit row seat so has no recline but has fantastic legroom for economy. Being 6' 3" the extra legroom was great to have for a 2.5hr flight. Certainly no knocking knees against the seat in front and as the seat in front (row 12) also do not recline, you do not have to worry about your space being taken up.

"seating is perfectly adequate"

(Australia)

Tiger Airways seating is perfectly adequate for a short flight and is better than most of its competition in Australia. Only thing to note is people seem to have a great amount of hand luggage which can't fit in the lockers so best to get an aisle seat.
