With the recent long weekend holiday in Singapore, I made use of it plus an additional day of leave to go on a 4-days weekend trip to Hong Kong. Took the red-eye Scoot flight up and return on SQ.
Check-in for the 0155am flight at Terminal 2 was quick as I was flying ScootBiz. The regular counters had long snaking queues due to lots of others like me heading off for long weekend holidays.
Scoot's boarding pass is now just in plain white.
Headed airside. MI planes resting for the night.
Views of the Dreamliner that would be operating the red-eye to Hong Kong.
We would be departing from Gate E20. The gate was, expectedly, fully-packed.
09 September 2016 Scoot TZ 322 Singapore (SIN) - Hong Kong (HKG) B787-9 9V-OJB 'Barry' ScootBiz Flight Time: 3H21M
Boarding was soon announced with ScootBiz and passengers who purchased priority boarding to board ahead.
Welcomed by the cheerful Scooties (what Scoot calls their cabin crew) and proceeded to by seat at the last row of ScootBiz.
As reviewed before, ScootBiz's seat is a basic recliner with legrest, comparable to Premium Economy seats. Legroom is sufficient.
ScootBiz was only half full, while I believe Economy was almost totally full.
Welcome drinks of a cup of water was handed out.
Inflight magazines and some of the selection of ScooTV.
Doors closed, manual safety demo done and we started the taxi to the runway. Flight time would be 3hr20min.
Departure from Rwy20C.
Some nice night lights of Singapore while we made a turn during the climb.
Seat belt signs were switched off, and cabin lights were turned on for the meal service in ScootBiz. Meal orders were earlier taken while on the ground.
Being such a late flight, I only ordered a ham with cheese croissant meal. It came with a bar of chocolate and a choice of drink, which I had a Coco water. The croissant was served warm and decent enough.
After the meal service was completed in about half hour, cabin lights was switched off till descending into Hong Kong. Managed to catch about 2hrs of nap on the more comfortable ScootBiz seat.
Landing in Hong Kong Rwy07L, 15min ahead of schedule.
View of my seat before disembarkation.
Only Door2L was used for disembarkation and so we had to disembark behind the Scoot-in-Silence economy pax. View of the regular seats.
View of 'Barry'.
Immigration was a bit of wait due to lack of open counters so early in the morning and luggage was available immediately at the belts (30kg included in the ScootBiz fare). It was only a swift 45min bus ride to Jordan, Kowloon, where I would be staying for the trip at Eaton Hotel.
Brunch of noodles at a eatery, Nathan Congee and Noodles, just behind the hotel.
One Dim Sum in Prince Edward for an early dinner.
Famous silky milk custard dessert at Yee Shun Milk Company.
A bit of sight-seeing:
Temple Street's bustling morning market
Wong Tai Sin temple to pray for good health, life and fortune.
Simple lunch at Cui Hwa HK café
Colourful and delicious yam and milk mix drink.
Very popular Cheong Fun (rice rolls) stall at Sham Sui Po with long queues.
Roast goose with noodles at Guangdong Restaurant.
My favourite HK dessert place at Jordan! All the desserts were superb, specially the pastes and riceballs with ginger soup!
More dimsum on the 3rd day, this time at Ding Dim in SheungWan.
Singapore - SIN
Hong Kong - HKG
Flying in ScootBiz is definitely a better experience comfort wise than normal economy seats, and made the brutal red-eye a bit more bearable. Service was fine and meal was decent at best, but for the ticket price, definitely no complaints.
