A Tigerair Airbus A320-200, registration 9V-TRD performing flight TR-2067 from Hong Kong (China) to Singapore (Singapore) with 156 people on board, was climbing out of Hong Kong's runway 07R when the crew requested to stop climb at 5000 feet reporting a bird strike that had cracked their windshield, the captain's windshield was fully cracked and arcing. The crew declined a query by ATC to climb to 7000 feet for a hold stating "unable". The aircraft entered a hold to burn off fuel and returned to Hong Kong for a safe landing on runway 07L about 70 minutes after departure.

The aircraft remained on the ground for 23 hours, then departed as flight TR-2067D and reached Singapore with a delay of 24 hours.
