Well, the name was rumoured a few weeks back, to less than complete enthusiasm here; looking forward to the route network. Can't find anything on SIA site or in other news bulletins.

Some more info here.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/busine...a/2011/11/01/gIQAza79aM_story.html

"Scoot Chief Executive Campbell Wilson told reporters Tuesday that the carrier initially plans to fly to four or more cities in Australia and China."

"Wilson said the company plans to fly four Boeing 777-200 planes next year and have a fleet of 14 aircraft by 2016.
Wilson said Scoot will charge 40 percent less for tickets than full-service carriers."

Im curious if it will be possible to earn Krisflyer Miles on Scoot?

I suspect that on the lower fares, it won't be, but SQ will want to ensure that new markets to be served by Scoot will be able to tap into the airline's hub at SIN, therefore I expect that there will be a certain fare level where one can accrue points/mileage.

You don't on some of the lower SQ fare brackets, so I doubt it very much... If they have a premium cabin of sorts then you might earn points in there, but not on the 40% cheaper fares...

Overall, the name might grow on people, but at this stage, its just plain odd.

Now the race is on to be one of those first destinations in China and Australia. Wonder where they will head to. I would suspect that CNS may well be one of them, but its an open field for the others.

There comes a point when being "fresh, new and original" is no longer fresh, new or original.

It looks like any one of a dozen other LCC's out there, and the website, well, ditto.

I guess this is the exact kind of reactions they were expecting with the new brand - it's polarizing. You either love it or hate it. And while you might not get a bed of roses at the brand launch, you will have lots of people talking about it! And that's what you need when you launch a new airline. So, mission accomplished, from a PR perspective.

Here's the new airline logo:

On their website, they mention 2 destinations, Australia and China.

With Australia, I'm not sure Scoot and SIA would want to compete on the routes, so I fear that SQ might leave some routes to Australia as time passes by. This would be awful, especially if I lost my beloved SQ on the PER-SIN route.

On the contrary, I think it is more likely you would see them on destinations such as SYD, BNE, PER, MEL. Why ? well it would allow SQ to drop say one flight a day from those destinations, but redirect people looking for cheaper fares to Scoot, this allowing the marginally profitable fares to be better yielding on the lower cost based airline.
Frequency is maintained, lower yielding fares can be eliminated from the SQ flights, while Scoot carries those same passengers at a better yield. SYD could be if launched today, 2 x 380's, 1 x 773 and 1 772 of Scoot, same frequency as present, even same aircraft types as present, but most likely a better yield overall.

When I scrolled down and saw the guy, those were my thoughts exactly. Ridiculous airline - ridiculous employees.

But Asians seem to love loud colors and poppy advertizements. The two things that strike me about this project is that a.) they use widebodies, which for some reason gives the illusion of it being a vast enterprise, and b.) they have the strong SQ brand behind them which gives credence to the former impression.

Imagine just how much differently you would look at this airline if this was a tiny Cambodian start up airline with a fleet comprising a bunch of old props only - even if everything else about the website remained the same. It is really pathetic how the human mind works ''Big airplane, many other people will be there, what many people do, must somehow be right''.

It's not to my taste and I would always prefer a Bangkok Airways over a Thai Air Asia (''classy vs loud''), but I have no doubt in my mind this venture is going to proof a success. I hope Skymark Japan will take note and get the most out of their new A380s because no matter how tacky I think the ''Scoot'' website is, it's still a trillion times more user friendly and appealing than anything the Japanese airlines have currently on offer.

Good luck to them!

I don't think SYD flights will be in the cards - at least not in the beginning. It's too long of a flight and most Australian bound passengers of SQ are transits anyway. It would seem likely to me, that in the beginning they will be deploying these birds to places that generate a lot of ''O&D'' demand for Singapore, like Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo.

On long haul flights fuel will become the highest cost item of the ticket price, feed will become more important and people will be less willing to forgo onboard service. All of these factors give low cost a much slighter edge over legacies than they got on short haul flying.

But why on earth would SQ want to do that? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.. SQ is bound to make more from sending their own plane with F, J and Y over a fully laden LCC Y cabin.

They need to be able to sort out connections with MI and SQ - something I believe would help them.


But one thing I don't understand is the fact that SQ is getting rid of their 773s - surely they could be utilised in this new airline in some way?

Probably because the 773s have limited range whereas the 772s can all be operated as ERs with a simple software change. I don't think the 773s can make it to Europe without needing a stop along the way whereas the 772s can. This offers a lot of flexibility in opening new routes.

They have specifically said on their own website aswell as numerous newspaper articles i have read that the first routes will be China and Australasia, so Bangkok & Tokyo definitely won't be opening routes, and Bangkok is likely to never be as they have said they will be focussing on medium to long haul routes of between 5 - 10 hours.

Also note the "Australasia" that has been in the newspaper articles, maybe we will see a New Zealand route?
But like others above Im guessing CNS and OOL are very possible routes.

They don't have to send them as far away as Europe though.. And some Australian ports are well within the reaches of the 773 - heck even SQ sent the 773 (non-ER) nonstop to AKL! I realise that these have the potential to be much heavier but it sounds like it could still reach the East Coast of Australia, chop fares a bit more and enjoy success. And it's not like the certification costs etc would be too much higher as so much is similar between the 772 and 773.

I can see SQ swapping their plane for a Scoot to operate SIN-CHC.. But I really can't see SQ allowing them to operate AKL-SIN.

Hmm... I would think the only 2 destinations that would be profitable would be CHC and AKL, and both are already served by SQ (I think?) so, unless they take the approach of replacing SQ flights as mentioned before, it would seem unlikely that NZ would be served, initially anyway.

Can the 773 (non-ER) do 10-hour routes? For a start-up, no-frills airline (even if they have the SQ behemouth behind them), selecting a single type that meets all their requirements makes sense. While Australasia and China are the early routes, I'm sure they'll be looking at routes to Europe that are too low-yielding for the parent carrier ... and that's where the 772ER will outperform the 773.

I also suspect that JNB might be a route that Scoot will take over from SQ (but may be wrong) ... and the rest of Africa is ripe for the picking if they play their cards right.
