Flying Scoot with children

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

I flew scoot to Sydney with my 2.5 yes old. Bought a seat for him. And we also paid for extra legroom. It was a comfortable flight and I think it's a good budget airline carrier. Food is not suitable for kids .. Too salty but I'm sure they allow you to bring food for kids.. We brought mcnuggets meal up for our kid and no one said anything. Brought along our own iPad and soon enough we are in Sydney already. Only problem is the flight out is a bit late so u gotta keep your kids up late but good thing is they are so tired they would just sleep. The flight back had some delays as usual but quite ok.

Officially not allowed la... but after travelling so many times on budget carriers, I think the air crews all get quite tired of telling passengers off.. and most will be glad to clear the rubbish (probably they dont want you to stuff it in the front seat pocket?)

Observed more and more paxs carrying their own food... but be discreet and dont bring your full BK or Macdonalds meal onboard. Sandwiches and kuehs should be fine. Remember dont bring water because you wont be allowed to go past the security.... if you want, you can bring empty bottle and fill it up inside the gate or on the aircraft.

Get an empty plastic bottle or plastic cup. You can take water from the Dispenser near the toilets. When we went to GC in Nov, the crew said there is no drinking water and we need to buy. But, later we found out this was not true.

One small bottle of Evian cost $4. Instant noodles also cost $4 (if I remember correctly). You can bring your own food, but be discreet.

If you want to buy food later in the aircraft and if didn't pre-order, you may not get it as they have limited stocks.

Buy travel insurance also. When we came back from GC, the flight was delayed for almost 6 hours!

Red-eye Scoot is a no-go for me. Took it to Taoyuan Airport. Couldn't get a decent shut-eye. The seats are about the same as the other carriers... but not as comfortable. i can't put my finger on it. maybe they're abit thinner somehow, or they don't sink your body in that well. i felt that Air Asia's seats were older but abit better. Also i think it was because the young lady next to me wore very strong perfume. :siao:

Coming back we took an afternoon flight. when they dimmed the cabin lights the lady (yes another young one, must be my lucky day) next to me left her reading light switched 'on'. She was on aisle i was in centre. being tall, the light just went straight into my eye. no shut-eye on this flight for me either.

but the service is better. the infrastructure isn't so good though, the crew have to deal with very little. for example when, when they clear your trash, they have to use this really shallow tray. after about 10cm of trash guess what happens when they pile more? everything drops to the floor... no fun man... but there was nary a scowl throughout the flight.

thumbs up for that.
