Girl I've got on facebook just said "how much you pay?" I responded "2000 babe" and then the phone went silent

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Yep, I'd trust an LG too.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 07:20 AM)

yup, my friend fixed his for less than 10 euros... i'm sticking with LG from now on... 1st gen 37"LG flat screen lasted for 15 years and still works, replaced it to get FullHD/4k

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

The fix cost peanuts, was well-publicised and could easily be done yourself if you can use a soldering iron. After 11 years I'd defo buy another. Ferraris break too sometimes.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 05:10 AM)

I had a Simsung with capacitor problems too, never Simsung again for me. On purpose they use too weak capacitors. Too bad the TV's started to break during the warranty period many times. I'm affraid it's not just them who on purpose design such flaws to their products.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:45 AM)

It was capacitors on mine. A well-known failure apparently. Makes TV take forever to start. The parts are cheap.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:43 AM)

Samsungs are damned good TVs. Well worth getting fixed properly, as I did with mine after 8 years reliable use. Still going strong now, after another 3. The fix cost £90 in UK.... and that was a home visit.

@  Biggles : (20 August 2018 - 04:05 AM)

Well its a Samsung Smart TV so not cheap, worth repairing if I can get a reliable fix. It turns itself off when hot, ok when it cools down, for about 20 mins then off again.

@  lazybugger : (20 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

First thing I had to do was open it and repair it!!! Haha

some will replace original parts with cheap copy

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 01:53 PM)

I too would not waste time repairing a TV or Computer unless it was a very expensive one here. But I don't know MacGuyver

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 11:18 AM)

Yes, I had the same thought but a recommendation helps. Dont think it is a major problem.

@  Kadachiman : (19 August 2018 - 09:46 AM)

I have had 3 different companies take 5 attempts to fix my aircond (leaking gas)...still no luck. This and other items that I needed 'repaired' has led me to the conclusion that the skills are not available to fix anything, so better to throw it away and buy new

@  scuba539 : (19 August 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Considering flying JetStar with a connection in Singapore.

 

Even though both flights are JetStar, I think that I must collect my luggage at Changi and go through Immigration and check in again.

 

Option 1 is a 1 hour and 45 minute connection which might not be enough time.

 

Option 2 is a 8 hour connection which might not be so bad since there is free wifi at Changi.

 

Does anyone have experience with a JetStar to JetStar connection at Changi?

 

I would assume that if I miss my connection that I wouldn't have to pay for another flight.   But there is only one JetStar flight a day from Singapore to Clark so missing the flight would be a hassle.

Done many flights with them. If it's ONE Booking Number, meaning you booked the flight A - Sin - B they forward the bags.

 

If you got ticket 1 on booking Number XXX going A - Sin and Ticket 2 with booking number YYY going Sin - B then you need to enter Sin, grab you bags and check in agian.

 

Either way 1:45 is enough in Sin but not much room for flight delay.

I am planning my itinerary & in the same conundrum. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that if it is a single PNR then there's no need for separate check-in & any checked baggage will be directly routed to Clark?

 

Secondly, in case I travel with only cabin baggage is there a transit check-in option without having going to the main immigration counters, like there is in Suvarnabhumi Bangkok, if you have been there.

You may be able to check-in online and print your boarding pass before you leave your original point of departure. Jetstar don't allow online check-in on flights from Manila, Taipei, Australia or New Zealand, but you should be ok from most other places.

I was checking Scoot & in one itinerary it has a 2 hour layover period at Changi, hope that should be sufficient.

With cabin baggage only you can check in at transit counters without going through Immigration.

I have travelled Jetstar many times Perth to Singapore to Manila.

They can and will do baggage transfer so that you do not have to worry about going in and out of the transit area, customs, immigration, etc.(however they can not always do it e.g. if different booking numbers means it is not a given)

 

Option 1 - they give you the boarding pass for both flights at point of departure - this is the best option

Option 2 - on arrival at Singapore you go to the allocated Jetstar transfer counter (normally Counter C at T1 which is where Jetstar normally land) within the Transit area and get your new boarding pass

Option 3 - you may be unlucky and have to go out of Transit and get a new boarding pass, keeping in mind that you can not get a boarding pass for your new flight until 3 hours prior to the flight (this is if they will not do baggage transfer) If you have to use option 3 then you may get stuck in the Arrivals area for a while

 

If you have to do down time at any airport Transit area at least Changi is a good choice as they have plenty to do

- if your transits is more than 3 hours then you can do one of the city tours....no need to clear immigration as it is all arranged in the Transist area

- movie theatre

- sleeping lounges (Use the one half way down T1 C as it is very quiet)

- free wifi

- many more , just grab a Changi Airport guide at one of the information counters

 

Another tip especially if on a tight time frame to get a boarding pass if you have to go out of the Transist area - if the immigration area is full for the terminal you come into e.g. T1 then catch a quick skytrain trip to T2 or T3 and go through immigration there and then go back to get your boarding pass.......especially if you land behind 2 or 3 bigger plane international flights

 

Singapore Changi airport is one of the most efficient I have experienced, so if you have to do a tight connection time frame then your delays are unlikely to be at the airport, but more likely a late departure of your original flight.

 

I have missed a Jetstar flight at Singapore due to the late arrival of a prior non-Jetstar flight.......Jetstar put me on the next flight for a Au$75 fee.....and my original booking was a very very basic cheap ticket....so not bad at all

Changi (Singapore) and Chek Lap Kok (Hong Kong) are two airports that I would actually prefer my transit times to be as long as possible at.

Both are cities I like to take the opportunity to travel downtown to for shopping, meals, drinks, sightseeing etc.

I am getting this message when checking the JetStar website for Phnom Penh to Clark and also for Perth to Clark.

 

 

 

* If you have checked baggage, you will need to collect your baggage on arrival at the connecting airport(s), and re-check it in for your connecting flight(s).
If you do not have checked baggage, you will still need to be checked-in for your connecting flight– this can be done before you fly via Web Check-in, Counter Check-in or Kiosk Check-in for domestic flights. For international flights you must check-in at the Check-in Counter.
For international connections, you will need to pass through Immigration and Customs. You are responsible for having all required travel documents (passport, visa, etc.)
 
 
Doesn't mention anything about booking numbers. I suppose it would be different booking numbers.
 
If I go the JetStar route I will probably opt for the long layover.
 
As far as the City Tour, seems like I'd be stuck with my baggage as I wouldn't be able to check in for my 2nd flight until around 3 hours before the flight.
 
Hanging out at the airport is not the end of the world given that they have wifi.

There are baggage storage facilities in all 4 terminals at Changi airport.

Might be better to get a Cebu Pacific or Air Asia flight out of HCMC to MNL - if - you have the 15 day waiver. You can take a morning bus from PP, noon bus would be too tight, to HCMC for 10 USD. They can drop you off near the airport. Better food in HCMC and better airport than Siem Reap. This might save you a bit as HCMC flights are usually cheaper than Siem Reap ones. There is a good Highland Coffee shop outside the domestic terminal, 5 min walk from international. Much cheaper than the options inside the terminal.

 

I like to go a day early and enjoy a day in HCMC. Much less hassle and enough to see and sneak around. Public bus from district 1 to airport is cheap and very good. I think something like 1 USD if my memory serves me right.

There was an announcement a few days ago about the introduction of direct flights between Phnom Penh and Manila. Hopefully this will materialise before too long, but don't hold your breath.

This is the reply I got when I raised an inquiry with Scoot about short connection times.

 

"Thank you for writing to us.

We would like to advise that guests who are connecting between flights at Singapore Changi Airport, and whose connecting flights are part of a single booking itinerary, will automatically be eligible for Scoot-Thru service. Participating airlines include Scoot, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir.
 
However, if your connecting flights are booked on separate tickets and do not belong to a single booking itinerary, you would need to clear arrival immigration in Singapore, collect your checked bags and check in again for your onward flight, as Scoot-Thru cannot be added.

Do ensure you have a valid visa to enter Singapore if you require one".

Interesting.

 

I don't think the visa waiver fee applies to Americans though.  But maybe good to see Saigon. Thanks!

Option 1 is a 1 hour and 45 minute connection which might not be enough time.

 

Option 2 is a 8 hour connection which might not be so bad since there is free wifi at Changi.

 

 

Option 1 isn't long enough to enjoy the airport. I personally would opt for the 8 hour transit, especially if it is in the day time, so that you get your free tour of the city. Unfortunately they don't seem to offer the boat trip on the river that I went on previously. 

 

If you haven't been in transit in Changi before, check here what is available. You get between terminals on the skyway.

Just booked Phnom Penh to Clark through Singapore with the 8 hour connection.

 

Works out well as I didn't want to go to fly out Siem Reap or Saigon and didn't particularly want to fly into Manila. 

 

As long as there is free wifi, I don't mind hanging out at a comfortable airport.

 

With the hour and forty five minute connection, a late flight from Phnom Penh would likely mean I'd miss the connecting flight.

 

JetStar offers 7kg of free carry on luggage with an option of purchasing 3kg extra.  I've never seen this option before for only a few kilos extra.

 

In all my years of flying nobody has ever question my carryon weight.  Maybe JetStar is different. 

 

Have they ever weighed your carryon which in my case is a backpack?

 

I am generally slightly over the 7kg limit.

 

I suppose I'll put some of the things I usually carryon into my checked baggage.

 

I can also put somethings I'd rather not check such as an external hard drive and extra phone into my vest pocket.  

 

Btw, Turns out I'm staying less than 30 days so didn't bother checking out getting a visa in Phnom Penh. 

 

Thanks again for your help guys!

Jetstar does weigh carry-on baggage 'randomly'.....their method is to get you to put it on the scales in the pretence of attaching the cabin baggage tag, while they cast and eye on the weight readout ;-)

up to 7.5kg seems to be acceptable.

Cebu Pacific has also checked my carry-on bags a few times. I'd say it happens on about 1 in 20 flights at most.
