Scoot doesn't provide bassinets on board.

Not entirely true, as the 787 is very quiet. The small planes (737, A320) on interstate trips are very noisy though.

For longer flights, aim for the newest generation of aircraft - they are quieter, have higher pressure, and have higher humidity. But of course, a bassinet would come before any of these.

My wife and 4-month-old baby flew on the SQ A380 a week ago, the baby didn't even cry at all.

They usually tell you which plane it is when you book. For airlines such as Jetstar and Scoot, the long-haul fleet is made up of 787s only so it can't be anything else. SIA usually uses 777 (which is quite noisy and is the older generation), A380, or A350 (new generation, although seats are tighter than the other 2), or the occasional A330 (old). Emirates fly the A380 to Melbourne as well. Qantas uses the old A330 (and rarely 747 - ancient dinosaur), with the exception of the soon-to-restart flight between Sydney and London via SG, which will be using the A380. For flights to Perth, some airlines use the small narrow body aircraft. Best to avoid if possible.

My personal picking order in terms of passenger/baby comfort would be A380 > A350 > 787 > 777 > A330 > 747 > everything else.

However, if you're not good at turbulence, take the 777 and 747 ahead of everything else, and sit near the wings.

If it's all down to the schedule and you have a restricted choice of airlines, then that can be quite difficult. Fortunately most of us in this forum are choosing to fly for leisure and have a choice of airline.
