Confusion between Tigerair and Cebu Pacific flights

Aviation Updates Philippines - Confusion between Tigerair and Cebu Pacific flights led passengers to miss their flight according to ground staff.

Passengers who are not informed about the Cebu Pacific - Tigerair deal, and those who don't listen to announcements were the ones who misses the flights. They do not know what aircraft they will fly with. They will be confused when they booked Tigerair then flew with Cebu Pacific because there are no more Tigerair planes which were returned to their lessor. Cebu Pacific gave Tigerair Airbus A320 planes, but it is still in Cebu Pacific livery with a small "Operated by Tigerair" paint at both sides. Well, do you think passengers can see it?

If there are 2 Cebu Pacific planes at the tarmac, one is Cebu Pacific at Gate 3 and one is Tigerair (without passengers knowing it) at Gate 4. Do you think passengers will get confused? If you ask me? My answer is yes, because some passengers don't listen to the announcements. It is clear at your boarding pass what gate you should stay. Why will you join those Cebu Pacific passengers if the gate they're boarding is Gate 3? It was printed in your boarding pass "Gate 4" and it is even said in the announcements. But, it's not the fault of the airline or the passengers. There's just confusion there.
