Scoot Flight TR3 SYD-SIN ScootBiz Class
18 August 2018
Flight Number: TR3 dep SYD @ 12:00
Aircraft: Boeing 787 Dreamliner
The dedicated check-in desk for ScootBiz passengers was staffed by friendly and efficient personnel to make this first part of the flight experience enjoyable and stress-free. Boarding passes for both this flight and the connecting flight were issued thanks to the airline’s ScootThru service, which also allows bags to be checked to their final destination
The plane pushed back from the gate 75 minutes behind schedule due to the late arrival of the incoming aircraft but made up some time along the way, arriving in Singapore 50 minutes behind schedule.
The ScootBiz cabin in this version of the 787 has five rows of seats in a 2-3-2 configuration. As always on Scoot, the cabin was immaculately clean. The ScootBiz seat is comfortable and gives ample personal space.
Food And Beverage:
ScootBiz passengers can pre-book specific meals before their departure. A variety of options exist for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
There is no built-in inflight entertainment on Scoot, which instead encourages passengers to download the ScooTV app before boarding the plane in order to have access to the audio/visual entertainment available via WiFi purchased on board the aircraft.
Arrival in Singapore was easy. Having a connecting flight, there was no need to go through Immigration or claim bags while in transit. A relaxation area with very comfortable lounges made the time between flights go by quickly.
Scoot is ever popular with passengers looking to take to the air without spending a lot of money, and the airline’s efficiency and hub at Changi Airport are well appreciated by experienced travellers.
