"activating lights or call help button"

(Singapore)

Unverified | As the buttons are flushed with the seat arm, there is the tendency of our arms resting on the arm rest and touching the buttons unknowingly thereby activating the lights or the call help button. The buttons panel can be improved by designing the panel with the buttons sunk-in so that they are not easily activated. There were a number of cases happened during the trip to and fro as the stewardesses came running thinking that we needed help.

"spacious interior on the 787"

(Thailand)

Verified Review | Singapore to Bangkok on 13 Nov. This ticket was purchased on Tiger Airways but the flight was made on Scoot (Tiger will soon be flying under the Scoot brand according to the news). I arrived at Tiger Airways' check in counters at just under 2 hours to departure. There was no queue. The check in process was done briskly. The plane was not full. Even though this was a flight on a budget airline, the flight was comfortable. The spacious interior on the 787 helped and the crew were cheerful and attentive. The captain made announcements at the beginning and at the end of the flight providing updates. The flight arrived 25 mins ahead of time and had to wait for the plane at the designated to leave before reaching the gate. The experience on Scoot for this leg definitely stands out when compared against all the other budget airlines flying this leg. Scoot will be my preferred airline for this leg.

"designed for smaller people"

(Australia)

Verified Review | Scootbiz is equivalent to Premium economy or domestic business in terms of the seat. Seat pitch is reasonable and general, seat comfort is good, be aware if over 185cm as the head rest protrudes Ito the back of the neck at the base, it's really uncomfortable and you have to try and lower your body to be comfortable, not good on the back. The Scoot 777 was amazing but this seems to have been designed for smaller people in mind. A pillow or cushion helps the situation but then it's an extra item to carry. The leather seat overall is good and a good amount of recline, I would use the Scootbiz again but will be interesting to see what premium economy services start to compete on the route.

"the seat was comfortable"

(Singapore)

The premium economy seat was spacious and comfortable. There was enough legroom, but the buttons for the seat were located by the hand rests, so I kept on accidentally pressing it. The light and attendant buttons were too not located well. Overall the seat was comfortable.

"pay for the stretch seats"

(Australia)

Make sure you pay the extra for the stretch seats on Scoot's Boeing 787, as well as the quiet zone area of the cabin. Believe me, you will not regret it. I managed to fit my 6'4" frame into the seat really easily. Was comfortable, and there was decent back support. I can highly recommend.

"closer to Premium Economy"

(United Kingdom)

Recently I fly from Hong Kong to Singapore on Scoot in their "Business Class" Found that the seating was probably closer to Premium Economy than Business Class due to the limited range of seating adjustments and a seat width that was similar to Premium Economy I have sat in on other airlines. At least sufficient legroom was provided between each row and the seating surfaces were leather or faux leather. For a flight under 7 hours, these should be more than adequate and comfortable for most people and certainly better than Economy seating offered on other discount airlines. Business Class does not offer any TV's, Scoot requires you to pay extra and to use your own devices to stream programs to. Also there is little to no storage and forget about charging your devices as there were no power outlets.

"everything else of a high standard"

(Australia)

On boarding this Scott Boeing 787 I was surprised at the number of cabin staff, the reason for this became clearer when I took my seat. Great legroom in economy, nice and new seats however one massive design error - they've put the buttons for the overhead light and flight attendant bell directly on top of the armrest, so you're constantly hitting them accidentally. It was somewhat of a circus watching the cabin crew constantly running up and down the aisle as the bells went off. Such a horrible thing to do to the cabin crew! This could have been sadistically amusing however I was trying to get my baby to sleep but kept flicking the light on which was annoying. This aside the staff are lovely, the food mediocre but edible and everything else of a high standard for a budget airline.
