  • ANALYSIS: Southeast Asia’s long-haul, low-cost renaissance

    News | 20 Jun 2014 07:39 | Greg Waldron

    No one will confuse Southeast Asia’s long-haul, low-cost carriers with their staid, full service rivals. Campbell Wilson, chief executive of Singapore’s Scoot, once held a competition with a colleague aboard a Boeing 777-200ER operating the Bangkok-Singapore route. He announced that each of them would push a duty free sales cart down an aisle. The colleague who sold the most would become “CEO for a day.” The passengers loved it, but unfortunately Wilson found himself out of work for a day: he was only able to sell S$120 ($95) worth of goods against the colleague’s S$360.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Southeast-Asias-long-haul-low-cost-renaissance-400621/
