References between SCOOT and KRISFLYER membership not seamless. Checking in was a challenge.
Was charged 200$ to check my guitar which I travel with all over the world and take on as carry on luggage 95% of the time on other airlines.
The aircraft, departure & arrival times, flight attendants were excellent. What could have been better: a bit more amenities: blanket, USB power ports, etc.
Was 45 minutes late leaving for a 45 minute flight. Was hurry up and wait for what? We just sat their at the terminal
We had to pay excessive baggage fees, then are bags were damaged.
It is a mistake to book with this company bad service from check in to pick up luggage
A space left for going to the toilet from the port side of plane to the starboard toilet in quite zone . Always stepping over people's feet up in the front economy seats.
Can one expect anything better in a low budget airline Let’s be real
Scoot is always great value for money.
Cons: "arrived one hour before flight, all counter staff had disappeared. On-line check-in was not available as an option, could not get checked in and as a result missed my flight"
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, good crew, early landing."
Cons: "15 minutes stuck on the bus at disembarkation sucked."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Seats are very tight if you are over 5’6"
Pros: "It was very good value for money."
Cons: "I could not cancel my flight. There is option to cancel only first 24h, then you have to call them and that doesn't work."
Pros: "Crew were good."
Cons: "I paid for priority boarding but could not find the queue easily to check in as well as there was no priority boarding line up during boarding. My seat did not decline at all. I paid for a window seat but got a completely blank wall. Flights were late."
Cons: "Flight with Scoot are not very well organized. for as large a fleet and number of flight locally should be better. no onboard entertainment nor refreshments. Staff not very personable either."
Pros: "Nothing. We had to sit on the runway for an 1 hour 40 mins. Staff didn’t even give away water, you had to purchase it... outrageous"
Pros: "GREAT CREW AS ALWAYS THE SEAT WAS COMFORTABLE AS ALWAYS."
Cons: "FOOD WAS ORDINARY NOT WHAT I ORDERED, MY NEIGHBOR IN THE CHAIR OPPOSITE HAD WHAT I WANTED AND IT LOOKED DELICIOUS"
Pros: "we were on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "nowhere to store our cabin luggage"
Cons: "I need wheelchair but your crew an Indian Lady I think in the check -in counter did not give me wheelchair from Singapore. She said but in Mla she assigned wheel chair but when in Manila they said Scoot did not assigned wheelchair inmy ticket. I hate you Scoot and I will never take scoot again in any of my up coming trips"
Pros: "Head rest not comfortable. Short distance okay not long one."
Cons: "Plane is old i think. Take off and landing time plane some shaky and sound not pleasant."
Pros: "The Business Class bed was nice"
Cons: "The whole experience was terrible. Scoot decided to - delay flight by 45 minutes without telling me. I discovered this by checking myself - chartered a Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 and then reduced then quality of every Business Class service (no entertainment system videos or music, no alcohol or soft drinks - only water, only Economy class food. There was no apology from Scoot (who are a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) and none from Singapore Airlines. There was no suggestion of any refunds or other compensation. Truly a disgrace. I will never fly on either Singapore Airlines or Scoot airline again. I am seeking further compensation through Australian Fair Trading and through Class Action Lawyers (as this impacted every passenger on this flight, not just Business Class)"
Pros: "Good price. Was on time, seats were comfortable, helpful staff"
Cons: "No use of headphones 30 minutes before take off and arrival"
Pros: "Crew were professional, friendly and efficient. Aircraft was clean in the cabin and in good serviced condition. Check in Staff were efficient, friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating configuration in economy very small. My Husband is a tall, big man and was cramped by the seat pitch, which made his trip very uncomfortable. To think that we have to pay for such an essential item to life as WATER, when it is free on most other airlines....or at the very least you can get a glass of water. I couldn’t believe the charge price for a tiny bottle of water and the fact that you can’t even get a glass of water either. This is an outrage and a rip off to customers."
Cons: "Seats we given did not recline .as they were just in front of emergency exit . The extra leg room seats were empty, but would have to pay extra to sit on them"
Pros: "boarding is thru gate and not tarmac"
Cons: "food are expensive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 30 mins."
Cons: "Flight crew’s attitude. The fact that there was no overhead space and the crew didn’t Check additional bags. Had to stove the bags u def the seat and there was no room to stretch my legs. The flight crew had the most pathetic attitude and was rude beyond imagination."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "No TV on plane"
Pros: "Singapore to Hanoi flight."
Cons: "Boarding is thru T2 airport bus which brings all passengers to Flyskoot plane parked somewhere. Not good for those with strollers. Will avoid Flyskoot if going to Hanoi."
Cons: "We were given just one very small water about 150ml and told we have to pay if we need more water. Restriction on providing drinking water in Business class seems unfair. Please reconsider"
Cons: "The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later."
Cons: "Temperature in cabin too warm on outgoing flight"
Cons: "It was moving a lot!!! :\"
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Pros: "check in - fast via machine. boarding - organized. crew helped out with baggage. flight - took off on time after short taxi and landed early"
Cons: "equipment could use refurbishment"
Pros: "The cost was cheap"
Cons: "There wasn't much room for someone who is 6'4''"
Pros: "The departure time was delayed but the crew made every effort to arrive on time. Kudos to the pilots. The cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "I get that it’s a budget flight, so no frills. I wasn’t expecting bottled water but at least offer some water in a cup. The water bottles being sold was expensive and too small. They encourage us to stay hydrated but not everybody can keep shelling out money for water, and strictly no outside food or drinks. Can they at least allow us to bring water, short flights not so much a problem but long flights, not so good for that strict rule."
Cons: "They lied about baggage costs My flight on scoot from blr to Singapore was 2 hrs delayed and no reason"
Cons: "This was a return flight I was taking. But even though I paid for a bag when booking, Kayak only booked the bag on the flight over. It there for cost me $48 to book the bag on at the airport one way back. For some reason when I was paying they could not take for the full amount on my CC and so I had to go change money as $8 had to be paid cash (very strange). The flight was very uncomfortable. I could go into detail but now I’m just ranting. Not happy. Won’t be doing that again."
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "They were very professional, polite and helpful"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Pros: "Scoot Airlines is a budget airline and is a great choice hopping from one spot to another in SE Asia. I use it quite a bit for travel between Singapore and Bangkok."
Pros: "On time. Service on board simple. Crews are friendly"
Cons: "Less adders to the advertised price"
Pros: "Very disappointed with overall experience. Booked on Kayak, received confirmation but then when I got to the counter to checkin my booking was cancelled and Kayak wouldnt do anything about it. Referred me to airline and basically "not their problem""
Cons: "Kayak could have assisted with problems."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "No free drinks. Seats were not too comfortable."
Cons: "Allow enough time between flights first of all. I almost missed my flight from Jakarta to Bali. It took me 20 hours. It was an absolute nightmare from beginning to end in every aspect of the word nightmare. Never again."
Pros: "I missed my luggage! In Singapore. I flew from Omaha all the way to Singapore. I had to deal with my missing luggage while I was waiting for our connection flight to Denpasar. Right now I don’t have clothes and I still wait for my luggage. I am very disappointed. I should scuba diving today."
Cons: "It’s nothing wrong with your schedule itinerary But the Crew of ANA 7773 made my luggage missed"
Pros: "The stewardess was very friendly!"
Cons: "If the flight was on time!"
Pros: "Flight was nice and smooth and crew was very helpful."
Cons: "It's really cramped and there is no net for magazines, literally zero entertainment. A 3 hour flight becomes very boring after awhile."
Pros: "Nice flight. On time. Nice crew."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "Last min purchase so a bit expensive"
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Huge overweight charge....no more mr nice guy at checkin...next time I'll take Air Asia or Scoot...! Paid $ 160 overweight....$20 for each kilo over 20 kgs. !!!!"
Pros: "Check-in staff gave exact range of time for boarding. Pretty comfortable and nice cabin crew."
Cons: "Don’t recall the greetings from cockpit and lack of announcements on potential turbulence and heavy rain plus lightning closer to destination. Only heard from cockpit almost nearing landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew quick and uneventful flight"
Cons: "At check in our family was separated all over the plane. When querying after receiving the boarding passes told can’t do anything until he jestar supervisor put us in the same row. The plane was barely a third full so bit of effort from the initial staff would have helped."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay more for hidden baggage fees at the airport for carry-on bags then for the cost of the flight itself. Storage bins on the plane were completely open too. Corrupt and deceitful business model"
Pros: "Everything was generally fine"
Cons: "They wouldn’t allow me to check in and couldn’t explain why at SIN airport. Later the lady at the airport info desk clarified it was because of possible volcanic activity in Bali. Seems like the people at jet star might of known this instead of assuming their system was broken?"
Pros: "On time Clean Friendly crew"
Cons: "High price for budget airline Not even water is free"
Pros: "Not a thing..."
Cons: "No overhead storage for the front 2 premium rows, Luck we got there early for the second row seats. The people in row 1 had there hand carry stowed well back and ended up being the last off the plane..."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Try a little tenderness. To be charged for water is insulting. No leg room is torture. I won’t fly with or recommend you to anyone."
Cons: "2hrs too late, no food, no drinks"
Pros: "The crew was nice and accommodating since my wife and I weren't seated together as requested when booking."
Cons: "Paid extra for checked bags. Had to pay for any food or drink on the flight (never heard of this before). Flight was delayed 2 hours and 15 minutes and then didn't even start boarding until well after that time...3 hours late after arrival. I get that you don't want to inconvenience two sets of customers but when I booked the 1:30pm flight intentionally instead of the 3:30pm it was really irritating to see that flight leave an hour before mine."
Pros: "Timely, courteous Pilot Crew"
Cons: "No beverages ! Not even free water. That's really cheap. Service staff needs to be more polite, friendly and professional."
Pros: "Check in good"
Cons: "Tread passenger like live stock"
Pros: "One of the most comfortable and spacious airline seats I've traveled in."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "Sneaky baggage fees. Low allowed baggage weights. Charged for in flight soda."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Checked baggage problems"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Could not print my boarding pass in advance and had to run around for a while"
Cons: "I heard bag fees were high, but so much worse than I expected. The baggage fees for my wife and I cost more than the flight, almost $300 USD. Will NEVER fly Jetstar again."
Pros: "Comfortable plush seats"
Cons: "No beverage or water service Tiny plane Rattling in plane"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed but the staff was professional and made an effort"
Cons: "Poor service and poor customer service in and out"
Pros: "Check in and staff on ground and in the air"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "The coffee was bad"
Cons: "Bad way to treat the passengers. And they charge you for a bag us$40 !!!"
Pros: "No reason given for delayed flight. Asked to chafe to earlier flight, they were going to charge total flight cost again. Terrible service!"
Pros: "The flight was fast and crew was courtious."
Cons: "The seats needed a little more leg room. No wi-fi available."
Cons: "Very expensive baggage fees. We paid over $80 for two small bags that were too heavy to carry on. This is not advertised well at all. Nothing is included. You literally have to pay $3 for a cup of water on the flight. No peanuts, no juice, no water, no bags included. I'm surprised the toilets didn't cost something."
Cons: "wanted to charge 900% more than the ticket cost for overweight baggage, ridiculous"
Cons: "There were 2 kids 1&3 behind us having the worst melt down, their parents could not control them and the flight crew ignored it. Everyone around us was beyond upset and they let safety and comfort go ... Horrible... I got hit on the head, spit on and kicked the entire 2.5 hours!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat space not so comfort."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew nice. On time."
Cons: "I paid for four seats but only needed one. NO REFUND AND THEY CHARGED FORTY DOLLARS TO CHECK ONE BAG! Couldn't even get water complimentary. I understand seats non refundable but could have at least allowed one bag as goodwill gesture."
Cons: "You are booking but cancellation or communication system is not there You are all cheaters"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable On time"
Cons: "Flight gate information Very poor in-flight service No meal or snack in two hour flight"
Pros: "Not much except for the price"
Cons: "They are low cost and up charge for everything"
Pros: "staff were very efficient and polite"
Cons: "seating is too tight for a normal size person, and they nickel and dime you to death just to select a seat, get a blanket for entertainment which I don't know what that would be....... and a drink can cost up too six dollars heaven forbid a little bag of peanuts or crackers........"
Pros: "Very helpful at check-in trying to work out over weight baggage problems."
Cons: "Steep fees on baggage and extra fees on everything."
Ground crew clueless, delayed flight gate change without communication. Horrible experience. Will not fly Vietjet again.
Everything seems good so far, only thing is delay...2nd time flying with vietjet and 2nd time got delay :(
The actual flight was ok, everything else terrible worst airline in South East Asia, delayed twice and eventually took off late again, waiting in room at gate before flight no staff there no information about second delay, jammed on bus with doors closed waiting to be taken to the plane, just a disgusting airline, do not ever rely on this Vietjet will always cancel or delay your flight, and it’s not cheap when you see luggage price and other add ons, if possible try to book a better airline Bamboo air etc
No in flight entertainment, no food, not even drinking water, uncleaned flights, smelly bathrooms, and above all no baggage allowance, they charged us 53700 yen for the baggages.
No, comment Me and my family at the boarding gate more than 30 min early but the flight delayed and they still leave without us.
Very basic, all seats are non reclining
Pros: "Worst Airline Ever"
Cons: "Vietjet needs to update their refund policy"
Cons: "We left 1. 5 hours late! The only food on the plane was prepackaged chemical foods and the only vegan option was a porridge they pour water over ($2)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed - be on time"
Pros: "Crew was average, need to brush up on geography. One crew member announced that we have arrived to the city of Quang Nam, instead of province of Quang Nam."
Cons: "Take off on time, not 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "should be on time"
Cons: "I was charged for a medical device (CPAP) to carry it onboard the plane. Never had to pay before on any flight as FAA permits medical devices for free."
Cons: "Airport reception is inexperience, could provide us the info we need. Luggage charging 2 for 70kg which is retarded. If you pay online or declare online it gives you discount, unfortunately that doesn’t work on visitors. The check innprocuedure was ineffective and waste lots of time"
Cons: "Customer service. Not helpful at all. They were more interested in getting rid of us. There was a man in a wheelchair who injured his leg in a bike accident. He needed to get to Vietnam for medical help. They told him they couldn’t accommodate him. They also refused to give helpful. They just left him. Your airline is run by heartless people. I would never recommend Viet jet to my worst enemy"
Pros: "It was on time for a change"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. We requested 2 aisle seats. Given the ok, and then found out we were seated window and middle. How did that get lost in translation?"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phuket"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours, then didn't board for another 45 minutes after that. We were given a mediocre coffee or soft drink in a lounge, no food. Basically the afternoon at Patong was wasted because we didn't arrive until after 5pm. Vietjet is renowned for this sloppiness and persistent delays."
Pros: "Flight Cree good"
Cons: "Seats, no jet ways to board or deplane"
Cons: "Baggage policy ridiculous. I was prepared bc I’d heard about the 7g rule but still had me running around almost missing the flight to pay the fee at a different location than the check in desk. The other location had staff on a break. Then no one else at the check in wanted to accept payment so that I could move on to boarding. Staff not friendly about the whole process."
Cons: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half without any information as to why. Major grievance was baggage policy. My wife and I have been traveling Asia for the last 7+ month and taken 35 flights to 10 different countries. This is the ONLY time we were told we needed to check our bags (which are both soft-sided and weight ~7kg). Apparently our small backpacks also counted toward the carry-on limit, which would have been fine if not for the following two contradictions: this was our THIRD flight with VietJet Air (one from Siem Reap to Hanoi, Hanoi to Da Nang, Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh) and we didn't have to check baggage the first two. We also saw at least half a dozen people get on our flight with either bags larger than ours, or carrying three pieces of luggage. Either enforce all the rules for everyone, every time they fly the airline, or not at all."
Cons: "Took 2 flights with this airline and both flights were delayed! Will never fly with this airline again!!!"
Cons: "My flight was from Bangkok to Busan, via Hanoi. I was planning to transfer at Hanoi, but Vietjet did not offer transit service. I had to pass immigration (exit the country), then reenter. Luckily Korean citizens can enter Vietnam without visa; otherwise, I would have lost my luggage. Terrible service."
Pros: "It was exactly what we needed. On time flight with few frills but good price and efficient. No complaints at all. Crew did well keeping control of passengers that kept standing while seatbelt sign was on. Firm but not angry. Good job."
Pros: "Uneventful flight. Nothing worth writing home about. No food, no entertainment, no hassle either."
Cons: "VietJet Air has the habit of not announcing delays until after departure time. It was funny to see the billboards announcing: "On time", then "Boarding" when there was no aircraft in sight. On the Arrivals billboard, it showed the in-coming flight as "Landed", when it most obviously had not landed, and there was no information about when it might eventually arrive. With slow operations, we boarded 40 minutes mate and arrived a full hour late. The schedule had been 9:00 PM; days before flying it was pushed back to 10:00 PM. We actually were at the gate at 11:00 PM. VietJet Air is unfortunately the only airline operating a late flight from Pleiku to Ho Chi Minh. No competition means no pressure to be on time."
Pros: "Flights were on time and worked well for us. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "The charges for each checked bag were annoying. We are a family of three and traveling with a 26 Kg kid but paying full price for our seats. With one checked bag the additional 4 Kg in the bag resulting in an upcharge seems foolish. Other passengers weighing 4 times as much pay the same ticket price as our smaller lighter weigh child."
Pros: "Was on time and cheap."
Cons: "I received a text saying the departure time was delayed 5 hours but that was not true. Don't know where or why the text."
Pros: "I waited 30 minutes in one line just to ask a question about luggage weight. A staff member told me to switch to another line next to me. I asked her three times if she was sure I should change lines. She insisted I move, only to wait in another line for 20 more minutes! There WAS NO ONE WORKING AT THE COUNTER! I found her again and she told me to switch. To another long line next to me and I had enough. I had to yell at her and make it clear that I was not going to wait another minute. I said I am going to the front and I’ll be next. I asked my ONE question about weight. It took 15 seconds and she should have handled it for me from the start."
Cons: "Staff that doesn’t listen and just points to a line when she demonstrated that she speaks some English. Don’t treat foreigners like idiots. They are generally very smart and have a valid question. Learn to LISTEN to your customers. A customer complaint is a gift. It’s up to you what you do with it."
Pros: "Provide 30kg of luggage allowance and at least a clear method for prepurchasing luggage allowance in your website"
Cons: "Attendants gave the first three rows drinks, but didn't give the rest of the passengers anything."
Cons: "I don't like how the lineup was at check in. You go the counter to check in. Then go to another counter to limeuo again to pay for your bags. Then lineup again for checking in. Very frustrating and confusing. Flight was almost three hours delayed and they refused to change to earlier flight. Service was poor and staff spoke very limited English. Will try to avoid this airline in future. Not a great first time experience."
Cons: "This airline was impossible to get in touch with. THey we're not at all accommodating to my request to change the flight time and sleazily rip you off with what is written in the small print."
Pros: "Good value, and the planes were on time (We took a couple of VietJet flights). Staff was courteous and friendly.Inexpensive! Free bag."
Cons: "Somewhat arbitrary rules about how much your carry on can weigh. I don't really get why this makes much of a difference anyway, as the bag will be on the plane anyway."
Cons: "I am an average height United States male; never have I been so restricted by seat space."
Cons: "Really annoying to have to pay excess luggage fee when starting a long journey, being allowed only 15k and the first thing that happens is that You have to leave Your check in country to go and pay for having 3kg extra. Badly earned money spent all time in line hating the airline for this stupidity - 20 kg's is a very normal allowance - get back to standard!"
Pros: "Airlineseriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours seriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Caroline is wonderful once the plane is able to get into the air"
Cons: "I was on an International flights, 3.5 hours. Their website didn't mention any additional fees for check-in luggage, I didn't expect that as most airlines don't charge extra fees on international routes, how surprised was I when at the check-in counter I was ask to pay $36 for my 10kg backpack. I feel I was scammed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Bus instead of ramp boarding. No food or drinks provided. The carts raced by us and did not stop to ask if we wanted a purchase. No leg room in seats."
Cons: "Have an error in system. I can't join the flight"
Pros: "Reservations were relatively easy to make on line and relatively easy to purchase on-line."
Cons: "Purchasing tickets this way can result in a lot of confusion upon arriving at the Airport. Without any documents that the Check-in Counter can use to process Check-in, the traveller will find out that a visit is required to a separate desk to obtain your reservation number scribbled on a scrap of paper to take back to the Check-in Counter (after waiting on line there again) so that the agent can find your record and proceed with check-in. This two step process is confusing and not immediately obvious to even the seasoned International traveller. Good thing I'm not easily flustered!"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in flight and baggage check in is an issue ."
Pros: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
Pros: "Schedule and price were reasonable."
Cons: "Extremely noisy announcements, much louder than necessary. Poor boarding information. Incorrect gate info and poor messaging."
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Late. Terrible boarding process, agents showed up 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time, and then put a final boarding call on the message board everyone had a lineup in a long line and no rows called just first come first serve. Male flight attendants were rude."
Cons: "Booked a midday flight directly with VietJet only to find the flight no longer was flying that day. We had been up onto a completely different flight, 4.5 hours later, with no communication whatsoever. We had paid extra for certain seats, And we're told during checkin these were given away. Thankfully they gave us the seats 1 row in front of what we'd booked. They should really tell passengers about flights, as this could have caused a lot of issues if choosing connecting flights. We were lucky to be able to rearrange our pick up."
Cons: "2 things: 1) I've traveled dozens of airlines with the same carryon backpack. The ticket agent required me to weigh my bag and since it was greater than 7kg said I'd have to check it. 2) Flight crew was running late which is entirely understandable. BUT rather than let the 200+ passengers know what was happening the gate agents said nothing."
Cons: "#Delayed for about three-quarters of an hour. #Cramped seating. #Coffee unpleasant. #Male crew abrupt."
Pros: "We were very pleased with VietJet Air. Check in went smoothly. Our bags arrived quickly after landing. Good start for the next leg of our journey."
