Scoot Delay Leaves Travelers Angry

Over the weekend Scoot flight TZ8 from Singapore to Perth was delayed almost 21 hours due to various faults.

Passengers aboard the flight were made to embark and disembark from the plane a number of times and were offered “excuses” for the delay. The flight had been delayed close to 21 hours, almost an entire day later than they were scheduled to depart. However despite the massive delay, the passengers were only compensated int ravel vouchers.

Accommodation wasn’t arranged and the travelers had to either dish out more for meals and cab far with some stating that it defeats the idea of traveling on a “budget” carrier.

Videos from the delay have made it’s way around the internet, but if you haven’t seen it, take a look here.
