Now, here’s the kicker, whilst Scoot separates their service into four classes of product (Fly, FlyBag, FlyBagEat and ScootBiz , it’s actually two when you boil it down – Economy (with or without dressings) and Business.
- Economy class seats will be a 31″ seat pitch, but the 777 will be crammed into a 3-4-3 layout.
- Business class seats will be in a 38″ seat pitch, and configured in an equally tight 2-4-2 layout.
