Hello to everyone and welcome to the last leg of my trip, flying on Singapore's newest budget carrier, Scoot. This FR will be rather short as this is a budget flight and there is not much to share about. Basically, we had cancelled our HKG-SIN sector on CX after last minute changes to go to Bangkok. Hence we decided to book this one-way flight back home, which was relatively inexpensive, about $120 with checked baggage of 25kg per person. This flight was full, which meant no chances of being able to occupy vacant seats.

Conclusion

Scoot
Crew: Crew were average, giving passengers the ''Get the job done and over with'' attitude, not very friendly.
Seat: Pitch was acceptable for a short flight

I would fly Scoot again for the price paid and seat pitch compared to the other LCCs, Jetstar and Tiger, which utilises A320 compared to Scoot's 777

Bangkok Don Mueang Airport
Fast immigration at international counter as there are little international flights, quite a number of shops and eateries after clearing immigration

Singapore Changi Airport
As usual, clean and efficient. Cleared immigration with biometric passport instantly, baggage reclaim was fast and we were out within 20 mins.

    Thank you for this report.
    I didn't know Scoot had also wide-body aircrafts. Seats config was 3-4-3 ?
    Nice pitch for a LCC !
    Did you have free food & drink as advertised ?

    Hello,
    Thanks for reading. Yes the seat config was 3-4-3, sadly Scoot does not offer free food & drinks, only its partner Nok Air I guess. Everything is charged on Scoot, I remember a Coke costs $4 SGD.

    Thanks for the report! I've flown with Scoot quite a few times before and indeed, it's competitive prices and wide-body aircrafts make the whole LCC experience much more bearable than other competitors. I also find it interesting that the signs and FIDS in DMK calls TZ NokScoot - an airline that actually has not commenced operations! (Scheduled for a commencement in Q1 2015)
    Anyway, thanks for the report!
