The planning is over, bags packed, goodbyes said – and we’re off to cast a senior traveller’s eye over the premium Scootbiz service offered by Scoot Airlines.
Sitting in Sydney International airport on a busy Saturday afternoon, we’re somewhat excited about our first flight on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner – to Singapore firstly and then on to Athens, Greece.
Quite a few readers have asked how the Scootbiz service compares with the premium packages of traditional long-haul carriers – and now we’re about to find out.
The Dreamliner experience will be the opening stage of a six-week sweep through the Greek Islands, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and the UK – writing about destinations, travel and accommodation particularly suitable for fellow senior travellers.
However, we felt decidedly younger a short time ago as we stood by the viewing window, noses pressed to the glass, to watch the Scoot Dreamliner pull into view.
It’s sleek lines and swept-back wings cut a fine sight in the early afternoon sun – a fitting way to start our review and our latest adventure.
