Will it work? Singapore-based Scoot, a low-cost carrier, reports the launch of its new product, ScootinSilence, for travelers who yearn for peace and quiet and no kids.
Guests seated in the ScootinSilence cabin from Rows 21 to 25 will get the privacy in the 41-seat upfront cabin just behind ScootBiz; extra legroom, as each seat is either Super or S-T-R-E-T-C-H, offering 35” pitch – four more inches than the standard economy seat; and confidence that under 12’s will be someplace else. Costs of upgrade start at $14
Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot: “No offence to our young guests or those traveling with them – you still have the rest of the aircraft, and plenty more Super or S-T-R-E-T-C-H seats, to choose from."
Scoot is a unit of Singapore Airlines. Scoot’s network now comprises 11 cities including Singapore, Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo, Tianjin, Qingdao, Shenyang, Nanjing, and Seoul. It has a fleet of Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
