Check-in was conducted at Singapore Changi Terminal 2, with the check-in machine issuing the boarding pass and baggage tag.
A manual document verification was carried out.
At Changi, you first “exit” the country, then conduct security at the gate area. With enough time between emigration and the gate security, one can engage in the secondary purpose of Changi airport – making money by going to the shops. Or go to the cinema. Or explore food courts.
Security was conducted at the gate in a fast but friendly fashion… with some rather well-designed trays, and a water top-up station.
It’s an Airbus A320ceo, set up in a 180 seat configuration. This aircraft was ex-TigerAir before it was subsumed into Scoot.
Whilst the seat is slim-line of some sort, it is pitched at 28″. Not only that, the seats recline too, making for a tight space to be in.
The seat was also mid-aligned with the windows.
Connectivity and In-Flight Entertainment
Neither were installed on this aircraft.
Scoot being a Low-Cost Carrier had heavy sales for the food and beverage items, as well as their tax-free sales.
I swear the captain found every bump he could between Singapore and Bangkok. None the less, some of this is conducive to sleep on this flight.
The flight was slightly delayed out of Singapore, resulting in a late arrival at Bangkok.
The plane landed safely at a Bangkok and taxied to a gate – with an airbridge connected
With a nearly 1km walk from the gate to immigration, exercise is certainly a thing a Bangkok.
Baggage was on the belt by the time immigration was cleared, allowing for a quick exit of the secured area.
The full review of Scoot 604 will be written soon!
