Flight Review Scoot TR11 SIN-SYD ScootInSilence Quiet Zone 27 July 2017
Flight Number: TR11 dep SYD @ 20:45
Class: ScootInSilence Quiet Zone
Aircraft: Boeing 787 Dreamliner
As always with Scoot, check-in at Sydney Airport was both friendly and efficient.
The flight departed Sydney on time and arrived in Singapore 30 minutes ahead of schedule.
Between ScootBiz and Economy Class is Scoot’s special ScootInSilence cabin for people who want to travel in a quiet environment. Seats are comparable to Economy, though the bulkhead Row 6 offers extra legroom.
Food And Beverage:
Food and beverages were available for purchase throughout the flight.
Entertainment systems are available for hire, though the few people not sleeping on this overnight flight seemed to prefer using their own devices.
The flight arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule and Changi Airport was nearly deserted in the early hours of the morning, meaning Immigration was a breeze. The schedule arrival time of 03:20 may seem intimidating and inconvenient but can actually work in favour of people who get to their hotels in time for a few more hours of sleep, resetting their body clocks to align with the local time.
Scoot continues to win over travellers with efficient, punctual services and low, low fares. Last week’s official merger of Scoot and Tigerair sees the airline’s IATA code change from TZ to TR as it absorbs Tigerair’s fleet of Airbus 320 aircraft along with an appealing flight network across South and Southeast Asia. Now travellers from Australia can check their bags straight through to their final destinations beyond Singapore with no hassle whatsoever and boarding passes for connecting flights can be provided at the point of origin in Australia. These seemingly small details make a world of difference for passengers who have long layovers between flights and want to explore Singapore a bit before returning to the airport with boarding pass in hand and only their carry-on bags in tow.
