Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight delayed. Please be punctual if can’t be earlier."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, good crew, early landing."
Cons: "15 minutes stuck on the bus at disembarkation sucked."
Pros: "The crew were super patient (a must when dealing with the quality of passengers from Trichy who were lacking in manners and etiquette)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The majority of passengers seem to not be used to the normal manners and etiquette of queuing and it was chaotic with pushing. Some discipline and order needs to be enforced by ground crew (and this will no doubt make the cabin crews' lives easier)."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Seats are very tight if you are over 5’6"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but could not find the queue easily to check in as well as there was no priority boarding line up during boarding. My seat did not decline at all. I paid for a window seat but got a completely blank wall. Flights were late."
Pros: "we were on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "nowhere to store our cabin luggage"
Pros: "The food was good. The service very good. Check in was so fast."
Cons: "Internet charge was very expensive and electrical outlet could not hold my charger. It kept falling out"
Pros: "Crew were kindly"
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"
Cons: "I need wheelchair but your crew an Indian Lady I think in the check -in counter did not give me wheelchair from Singapore. She said but in Mla she assigned wheel chair but when in Manila they said Scoot did not assigned wheelchair inmy ticket. I hate you Scoot and I will never take scoot again in any of my up coming trips"
Pros: "Can't complain"
Cons: "Cheaper? :) !"
Pros: "Head rest not comfortable. Short distance okay not long one."
Cons: "Plane is old i think. Take off and landing time plane some shaky and sound not pleasant."
Pros: "Extremely rude."
Cons: "I got sick on the flight from some food poisoning and the crew acted put out when I asked for some water."
Pros: "The Business Class bed was nice"
Cons: "The whole experience was terrible. Scoot decided to - delay flight by 45 minutes without telling me. I discovered this by checking myself - chartered a Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 and then reduced then quality of every Business Class service (no entertainment system videos or music, no alcohol or soft drinks - only water, only Economy class food. There was no apology from Scoot (who are a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) and none from Singapore Airlines. There was no suggestion of any refunds or other compensation. Truly a disgrace. I will never fly on either Singapore Airlines or Scoot airline again. I am seeking further compensation through Australian Fair Trading and through Class Action Lawyers (as this impacted every passenger on this flight, not just Business Class)"
Cons: "You can choose your seat but when you pay you can choose a seat and I don’t like this"
Cons: "The flight cancelled.first we boarded twice and been waiting for 7 hours Inside and outside the plane thereafter they gave up and decided to cancel it ..it was nightmare"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The long delay......"
Cons: "Unfair policy of no outside food, treating its customers in a captive state; cabin is dirty with little cleaning work done. Won't fly if it were not cheap."
Pros: "Crew were professional, friendly and efficient. Aircraft was clean in the cabin and in good serviced condition. Check in Staff were efficient, friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating configuration in economy very small. My Husband is a tall, big man and was cramped by the seat pitch, which made his trip very uncomfortable. To think that we have to pay for such an essential item to life as WATER, when it is free on most other airlines....or at the very least you can get a glass of water. I couldn’t believe the charge price for a tiny bottle of water and the fact that you can’t even get a glass of water either. This is an outrage and a rip off to customers."
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "No offer to book my seat assignment during the booking process. A kiosk check-in would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly and efficient, considering the flight time being very short. The Flight Crew got us to our destination 10 mins ahead of schedule, considering also that we were 15 mins behind sitting on the runway for take off, which in effect meant they made up 25 mins. Fantastic job. The Aircraft was clean and well maintained. The seats were comfortable in economy for me, but unfortunately my Husband being a larger tall man was cramped and didn’t have a lot of room to move."
Cons: "As the flight was very short the choice of food was limited and the selection was not good, as the choice I required ran out at the first two rows, which were not occupied by many passengers at all. A very light passenger load. The pricing was a little high for the snacks and tiny bottles of water."
Pros: "boarding is thru gate and not tarmac"
Cons: "food are expensive."
Pros: "Ok time"
Cons: "No free drink"
Cons: "Journey / organisation"
Pros: "Singapore to Hanoi flight."
Cons: "Boarding is thru T2 airport bus which brings all passengers to Flyskoot plane parked somewhere. Not good for those with strollers. Will avoid Flyskoot if going to Hanoi."
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Cons: "The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later."
Pros: "Being a budget airline, you really get what you pay for. Seats do not recline. Minimum legroom. I was thankful that it was only a 1-hour flight"
Cons: "Stiff, uncomfortable seats without controls. Just adequate legroom for a 5’3” person"
Cons: "It was moving a lot!!! :\"
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Pros: "check in - fast via machine. boarding - organized. crew helped out with baggage. flight - took off on time after short taxi and landed early"
Cons: "equipment could use refurbishment"
Cons: "If they have a policy that passengers cant eat food bought outside the aircraft they should make sure that they have variations/choices on their menu. I can only eat fish but they dont have it on their menu so i brought my own food but the crew asked me to stop eating it because it was not allowed. Im hungry and tired and was upset that time."
Pros: "The cost was cheap"
Cons: "There wasn't much room for someone who is 6'4''"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "How can the the airline serve such terrible food that smells of processed plastic!!! It is served burning hot and unedivle."
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "They were very professional, polite and helpful"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Cons: "Delay one hour"
Pros: "Scoot Business is excellent value for money. 35 seats at the front of a Dreamliner with comfortable seats and some recline. The flight took off on time and landed in Sydney on time. I will go again."
Cons: "Not much really. It does not compare with Business on the national carriers but at half the price what do you expect?"
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "Early alert that flight was going to be 5 hours late."
Cons: "No online check- in. Very slow check in at airport. Vouchers provided for food at airport - only problem was we couldn’t find a place that would take them. Boarding was painfully late and slow. As we arrived in the early hours of the morning the cost of taxis were double the normal price. Still no compensation as promised by the airline when they initially advised us of the late flight. Could do a lot better."
Pros: "It was all great. Paid extra for the quiet area. Worth it"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and the plane itself (B787) is a new plane and the lower pressurised altitude is very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like being told off by one of the flght attendants for eating my own food on the flight. If Scoot's food was more reasonably priced I would buy it, but it is overpriced and therefore I need to bring my own. The seats are uncomfortable for sleeping in. The cabin temperature was a bit cold and with no blanket supplied this made it hard to sleep. Even though you are flying between two tropical destinations, I would recommend bringing a jumper."
Pros: "Nothing other than punctuality."
Cons: "After boarding started there was no Aircon the flight was boiling hot and hugely suffocated. Also so many mosquito surely need better service."
Pros: "Scoot upgraded to a bigger plane, and as a result had more empty seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by almost 2 hours due to operational problems. despite that, there were still passengers who were late to board, causing more delays. no apologies from Scoot. plans were derailed."
Cons: "Boarding was quite messy as flight was delayed but many passengers were not informed. Only one service officer was being bombarded with questions from passengers when it would save so much trouble just making a proper announcement in the first place. Boarding queue also merged with another flight departing at a similar time, causing a massive bottleneck. Whilst on board, pre-ordered food was not served with cutlery and it took another 15 mins to get the attn of the stewardess to get the cutlery served. Would have been faster to just get it myself."
