Scoot to Singapore Airlines

Hi guys, not sure if anyone has the same experience, I am due to fly Scoot from SYD to SIN but scoot decided to charter a flight from SQ and i will be flying on SQ metal. Does anyone here have any experience on it? if there will be 20kg free baggage and if KF Gold works here ? ( Since I am on a SQ metal)

Thank you for the information,
Although that didnt really answer my question nor did anyone has a similar experience it is still good to know.

I will be really keen to see if star alliance gold benefits works on this and if there is any baggage benefits still! or free baggage for flyscoot passenger without purchasing baggage.

Star alliance Gold won’t work for this flight. It is a scoot charter flight.
As for luggage I am not sure. They did not mention anything in their email to you?

All benefits remain as if it were a Scoot flight, no free bag, no lounge access etc. The only difference is onboard - SQ hard product obviously - no IFE though and no BoB - you'll be given a free meal and water/juice instead

Try to bid for a ScootBiz seat if flying in economy. I paid 100 USD and was upgraded to angle flat singapore airlines business class seat.

Also, you receive a Singapore Airlines business class boarding pass. I didn't have time to try it in the lounge but please report back!

How do you did this? I must admit I've always ignored Scoot as I miss out on all my *A Gold privileges (which I know I wouldn't get with ScootBiz but the seat might be worthwhile)

Here's the link https://bid4biz.flyscoot.com/tz/standbys/up

I bid last month at the lowest available option and I did get the upgrade, but then I also already prepaid for my meal and also selected a ScootinSilence seat in advance so that may have helped.

Thanks. As you can earn KF points according to the $ you spend at Scoot, I wonder if that includes what you pay for the upgrade

ex-SIN the check in agent crossed out the lounge text, so I am pretty sure that you wouldn't gain entry sadly

Just did the trip SQ8111 SIN-PER on a chartered SQ A330. Despite what the check in person said (and the lounge invitation printed on the BP), we tried but were denied lounge entry as expected. Luggage is as per Scoot, not SQ allowance. We booked Scoot Biz so got the run of the empty J section (there were 3 other people besides us). It was nice to have lie flat seats, but the meal was standard Scoot nasi-lemak with a plastic cup of water. IFE was turned on in J (can't speak for econ), but we would have had complimentary access in Scoot Biz anyway.

So all in all, expect what you'd normally get with Scoot (no more/no less) and the hard product is a nice bonus.

Thanks for the information! it really helps.. it confirms what others have said about Scoot Biz not being able to get lounge.
I wonder if *A Gold members can still go to lounge with the SQ ticket, happy to go for thaiairways lounge anytime

I'm booked on TR2 Scootbiz SIN-SYD next month. Haven't had an email yet, but ExpertFlyer shows a 772 seatmap (1-2-1) for the flight (SQ8121)

As I'll be at Changi very early (arriving on QZ from Jakarta) I was wondering if early check-in for SQ8121 would be possible using the SQ desks.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

I would have thought if you were chartering a flight (i.e. hiring the plane), you will be able to take as much luggage as the flight would be able to carry whether you are KF Gold or not.
Say you are flying the A380 there are up to 471 seats so times by 30kg (allowance for Economy) you would get 14,130 kg allowance
