SCOOT AIR (Singapore Airlines Budget Airline) Flight Review
TR 7 - 27 June 2018
Boeing 787 Dreamliner - Scoot Air
Two economy sections and a ScootBiz section. (Premier Economy section)
The plane seats 355 people. Rows 6-10 are designated "Scoot in Silence" seats.
7 hours 40 minutes
THE SEAT: 39A
Standard window seat near the back of the aircraft. 3,3,3 configuration. Not a lot of leg room. Pitch 31, Width 18.9-19.7 Felt cramped.
Options offered are -seats with extra legroom (Stretch seats) $40 and -Scootbiz seats -$80
A bid for Scootbiz seats was offered by email a couple of days before departure.
Very, very full.
FOOD & DRINK:
No free tea, coffee or water. Buy them from the quite expensive on board menu. Prices are in Singaporean dollars which are similar to NZ dollars.
Purely by chance, I noticed that on the back of the menu booklet it said NO OUTSIDE FOOD ALLOWED, but it seems a lot of people had brought their own snacks and drinks. I don't know how strictly this policy was policed. I hadn't noticed any mention of it anywhere when booking.
SCOOT TV and movies can be streamed to your device for US $11
You can get connected with in-flight Wi-Fi from US $6
For US $5 you can purchase in SEAT power to recharge your devices.
Non existent really unless purchasing food, drinks etc as this takes up all the attendants time.
Fare, including taxes and fees- NZ $528 per person
PLUS - 1 x 20 kg bag- NZ $63 ( purchased after original booking)
PLUS - SEAT selection fee- NZ $28
PLUS - Processing fee for using a credit card- NZ $23 ( What a rip off this fee is!)
TOTAL: NZ $528
Be aware of those extra charges!
WOULD I FLY IT AGAIN?
I would definitely upgrade to a bigger SEAT with more leg room. It's a day flight, which is a plus for me, departing at 9.00 am and reaching Singapore at about 3.30 pm Singapore time. No frills but it served the purpose of getting us from point A to Point B at a very cost efficient price.(Review Scoot Air. Scoot Air Gold Coast to Singapore)
