Trip Report: Scoot 9V-OTA TZ1 Sydney - Singapore
Do watch the video to experience the flight.
This report is of a flight in Sept 2012. This trip was planned holiday with friends. We decided to cover Thailand and Singapore as some of my friends hadn't.
As ticket and seats were booked by friends, I didn't know the details before the flight.
Check-in for this flight was done online, On the day flight, we arrived early by taxi. As this being a holiday we were travelling light.
Baggage was underweight. Our passport was checked and boarding pass printed till Singapore.
Sydney airport used to have a open viewing deck above the terminal in 2012.
Some plane spotting before heading for immigration

Air Calin push-back Immigration and Security
On watching the plane dock at the gate, we decided to head for immigration.
Immigration and security was quick being mid-day, not many international flights were scheduled.
We didn't get much time in the terminal as boarding had commenced by the time we had completed security. We rushed to gate area.
Preparing for departure Seating
Seating for the economy was 3-4-3. Seats with more spacing are yellow coloured, Blue seats had narrow space.
I wasn't happy with the seats as it felt tight.
As I was seated in the aisle seat, got up few times to stretch as the seats were uncomfortable/

Seats have different reclining position, making it very uncomfortable for someone seating behind the paid yellow seat.

Flight schedule Immigration
Immigration was quick as there was hardly any queue when we arrived and got visa on arrival.
Baggage was to arrive on belt no 36.
After collecting the bags, we exited through the green channel as we had nothing to declare.
Headed for the taxi queue which moved fast and on to the hotel.
Hope you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading.
End of trip.
