    I have travelled to Singapore with Scoot and found them really good. comfortable seats and the service was great.
    I have also travelled with Jetstar Airways. Great prices but the last time I travelled we were 1/2 hour late leaving, and on the return journey we were an hour late departing. Still, I guess you get what you pay for.
