Default Scoot to Honolulu via Osaka?

Some news have mentioned that Scoot is seeking US DOT to fly to Honolulu via Osaka by second half of the year. This would be like what Air Asia announced a new routing from Kuala Lumpur to Honolulu via Osaka a few months ago.

ST is reporting it now but not much details on frequency and timing yet.

Just wondering aloud if the configuration depicted on ST with only 18 ScootBiz is optimal for long haul routes. Would imagine 18 selling out pretty easily with excess demand...

Yes, the pic show them splitting into 3 "classes" - 18 in ScootBiz, 33 in child-free economy and 278 in economy.

I think the "child-free" economy is an interesting concept for long-haul. The question is how much premium will they place on near-silence/peace but same seat/space/amenities as Y.

ScootBiz's pricing is somewhere between SQ's Y and PY, which seems reasonable.
