Hi Everyone,

Flying to Singapore in three weeks time on Scoot and flying Biz. Does anyone know what type of adaptor is needed to gain use of th inflight power. Flying with the other half so are fully aware of only having one charging point!

It's a standard multi-plug AC powerpoint - when I flew on Scoot's inaugural Sydney-Singapore service in ScootBiz, I was able to plug my laptop straight into it.

From http://www.ausbt.com.au/scoot-seats-reviewed-and-the-best-seats-revealed

Also note that there's just one AC socket shared between every two seats, so if you both need to use the powerpoint at the same time, I suggest bringing a little double adaptor.

Thanks David, how does comfort compare to other premium economies? The last premium I flew was Air France.

It's quite comfortable, I've never flown Air France premium economy but have flown PE with Qantas and Cathay Pacific. In essense ScootBiz is a regional business class / premium economy seat, as these two categories are fairly similar. You can't beat the ptize especially when it's on sale, but the 2am take-off from Singapore back to Sydney is a drag unless you're happy to be hitting the Singapore nightlight until 11pm, in which case it definitely hels you make the kost of your last night in Singapore!

Won't be a problem with the late departure, we are flying from Bangkok a couple of ours before hand and will be purchasing 'fly-thru' in the coming weeks. Will report back on how it is!

Would like to hear about your 'Fly Though' experience, for sure!

Hi David,

Can happily say that the 'Fly Through' option with Scoot is definitely money well spent. After checking in at Bangkok we where given instructions to proceed to Transfer Desk E at Changi. All we had to do was show our old boarding passes, passports, and our luggage tag and where given new boarding passes on the spot. 

In Bangkok our bags where checked through to Sydney. I was sceptical at first as the bag was tagged to Changi with another tag hand written to show the bags had to connect with Scoot 002.

In Singapore it took all of 10 minutes (including the walk to the transfer desk) whereas our friends who didn't have the connecting service had to clear immigration, then proceed to check in again...taking around 50 minutes. 

I can safely say it was money well spent. As for Scoot Biz, the seat was $500 so expectations weren't high but was immensely impressed and would happily fly them again.
