While I get they are nasty, smoking areas past security provide a huge stress relief to those of us who do smoke, which is clearly fe...

If the announcement wasn't for a "new airline" altogether, I'd agree with you. That or ORD on AA.
But being as this is for a new airline, I'd guess it to be F9. Just because that's the only one that would make sense IMO.

Would be interesting to see if Scoot would go for a GUM-KIX or GUM-SIN route. Really seems like there should be more leisure airlines on GUM-Japan than just the Korean ones about to launch GUM-KIX. Of course GUM sort of feels like the faded carpet club anymore, so maybe the demand just isn't there.
