Currently there is a road show held in Marina Square Atrium in Singapore to introduce their new products and creating a bigger impact to the public on their brand. - Scoot Ultimate Take-Off Challenge. From what I see, I am looking forward very much to their new J class products. So, check out now on their website at www.flyscoot.com. I am impressed with what they will be offering. I bet you will too.
Here are some pictures taken at the event.
|The J class seats are the ones that usually used on regional business class. Looks pretty ok for me with the price that they have to offer. A good deal I have to say.|
