Of course, because they have to use different tone, due to different kind of service offered by each carriers. While FlyScoot is a low cost carrier, Royal Brunei is a full service airline.

There is a tendency for full service carrier to use calmer color to represent elegance, while low cost carrier tend to use brighter and bolder colors to make them more appealing (in some way).

A new long-haul budget carrier owned by Singapore Airlines is set for its inaugural flight, hoping to grab a piece of Asia's burgeoning no-frills travel market.

Scoot said in a statement that its first flight will leave Singapore late Monday heading to Sydney.


Scoot said it also plans to start flights this month to Australia's Gold Coast and later to Bangkok and the Chinese city of Tianjin.


Scoot is beginning operations with a fleet of four Boeing B777-200 aircraft.


Scoot's two main competitors in the region's long-haul budget market are Air Asia X, owned by Malaysia's AirAsia, and JetStar, a unit of Australia's Qantas.


Singapore Airlines said last month it posted its first loss since 2009 in the first quarter as higher fuel prices sent costs up.

Today Scoot also announced SIN-TPE-NRT, thus taking the final slot for a Singapore carrier to land in Tokyo. At least JetStar won't get it now.

I am very interested in Scoot, whether it be FlyBag (short haul) or even ScootBiz fares for the long haul. The newly announced SIN-TPE-NRT route is particularly good, as it allows access to Tokyo on a budget fare.

However, I cannot understand the SIN-BKK route from Scoot. I presume they just want to steal some thunder from TG's A380 when it commences in October on that route, although TG won't be leaving it on that route forever.

I also understand SIN-BKK is one SQ's biggest selling routes, so I can't fully understand why they want to utilise their LCC subsidiary on the route too, unless they forsee the route being totally LCC one day...

It's all about aircraft utilization, planes can't just sit idle for long hours waiting for the next long haul flight

Here is an article that I posted in the Singapore forum.

Singapore Airlines going 4 times daily to London
Quote:
Between 9 September and 21 October Singapore Airlines is lifting its capacity between Singapore and London to four flights a day each way, three in A380s and a fourth in a 777-300ER.

That is the same number of flights Qantas is entitled to under its current air traffic agreement, but has cut back to two A380s daily, one each originating in Melbourne and Sydney, plus hand offs to BA connections in Bangkok and Hong Kong.

On the current timetable, which may change by that time, Singapore Airlines may be operating three A380s daily from Australia to Singapore. The word ‘may’ is getting a work out because as regulars have often complained in forums, its A380 arrangements out of Sydney had been prone to ‘equipment changes’ at different times earlier this year, making it sometimes uncertain as to exactly what it was offering, as sometimes the alternative wasn’t the 777-300ER, but other jets without the top notch business class and other amenities on its biggest Airbus and biggest Boeing.

The change however will give Australian travellers even more reasons to choose to fly all the way to Europe and the UK on Singapore Airlines, which also operates A380s to Paris, Frankfurt and Zurich, and supports its European network with additional 777-300ERs.

It also underlines a problem common to Qantas and Virgin Australia’s less frequent flights that connect with onward Etihad services at Abu Dhabi, and that is, a single carrier service is always more convenient.

It is a big problem for Qantas customers. There is a relationship between loyalty and frequency of service, and if it can’t sell what people want in terms of flying to London, then it can’t expect to be taken seriously when it complains about a lack of support by Australians.

Unless you have the seats to sell, whinging about successful competitors to London is pointless. Singapore Airlines is pickling up the golden opportunity offered to it by the little Qantas policy, in which the airline’s management reduces risk and costs by reducing flying.

That's pretty crazy! Reminds me of the CX HKG-JFK route with 5 daily flights.

Eh shouldnt be by that much. In some aspect Singapore Airline is better than Emirates, notably the fact that Changi airport is much superior to one in Dubai.

My friends who had travelled with both Singapore Airlines and Emirates found that each airlines had their own strength and weakness. One airline's strength is other's weakness.....

I think they are okay.. Btw if Belgrade ever remained strong as in 1980s, I wonder if they would consider it? We had Qantas during those days.
