We landed in Athens, Greece in fine, warm weather.
After flying for about 12 hours in darkness, the emergence into the soft dawn over the Middle East was a perfect opportunity to admire the sleek body and wings of Scoot’s 787 Dreamliner.
During the long night, we were so pleased to be in the ScootBiz premium cabin, where there was ample room to spread out and sleep in comfort.
The near silence of the Scoot Dreamliner was also appreciated – and our iPads and phones charged in the in-seat power sockets as we slept.
There was a ripple of excitement around ScootBiz as we emerged from the darkness to clear views of the Egyptian Pyramids through the extra-sized Scoot Dreamliner windows.
We marvelled at the extraordinary layout of the ancient Egyptian towns and cities and could clearly see bulk carriers on the sea.
Soon, the Greek islands came into view and it was time to eat a delicious breakfast served by the attentive Scooties and gather our belongings as the Scoot Dreamliner began to descend into Athens.
Once again, we can only repeat that, in our experience, the ScootBiz premium package, combined with the technological wonder of the Scoot Dreamliner gave us by far the most comfortable long haul flight we have experienced.
As senior travellers, we found the experience ideal: relaxing, free of stress and enjoyable.
The priority boarding and disembarkment for ScootBix passengers was also ideal, as we could move at our own pace and be pampered all the way.
Amid hazy and steamy conditions, we made our way through Athens International Airport to catch a domestic flight to Crete. The comparison with Scoot’s Dreamliner was marked, believe me – firstly a bus out onto a hot tarmac and then a rather cramped 35 minute flight.
We made our way through the streets of Heraklion to our accommodation and a long sleep.
