It’s not secret that I have a fear of flying. More the claustrophobia than anything. My main concern when I travel is the seat size and legroom. Everything else is good to have but I am willing to forgo as long as I don’t feel like the passenger in front if trapping me each time they lower their seat a little. I even feel trapped when the food trays are all down and they take very long to clear the food once you’re done. It’s an awful feeling to not be able to put the tray back up. It’s feels like you can’t get to the escape and the building is on fire, oxygen runs out and you can’t breathe and slowly suffocate. Something like that. Totally irrational, but sadly the dominating thought process that takes over in your mind. Quite torturous in fact. Even on SIA planes, which is about the only flight I have been taking recently, I still feel cramped. I am only talking about cattle class or economy as that’s the only class we can afford. So I am not sure if I will be able to take Scoot if the seats are any smaller or spaced even closer together.
On another note I think the name is quite cute and the yellow theme is sunny and optimistic.
Does anyone out there know, from personal experience, which airlines (economy class) are the most generous in terms of seating? Is there anything comparable or better than Singapore Airline’s and it’s economy seats? I love travel, but this fear is a big hinderance and downer that only came into full force a couple of years ago. I just wish there was a class in between economy and business that was affordable and offered more legroom.
