Hi guys, I was having a one week holiday in Melbourne and Sydney and I was flying back from Sydney to Hong Kong via Singapore by Singapore Airlines (SQ). The plan was I took an evening flight from SYD and arrived in SIN at midnight. I was having a late real dinner at the SIN airport and napped around, and took a morning flight from SIN to HKG in the morning next day.
The journey started off by taking train at the Central Station. But instead of taking train directly to the airport, I got off at Mascot actually and changed for Bus 400. In this way I could save the additional fee applying to the airport train station :)
I arrived at the airport later than I expected since the bus was late. When I arrived there is almost no one at the SQ counter.
Quickly going through the immigration, I was walk around the terminal which was under quite major renovation around.
Just walked around…
This is the plane today!
Caught the sunset in front of a Air China plane.
Waited and waited, finally time to go abroad.
This flight was run by a Boeing 777-300ER (777-200ER refitted when I first booked). So the chairs and stuff are pretty new and modern.
Quite a large TV screen in the economy cabin and it felt the seat was pretty wide and the legroom was abundant.
When we were in the air, snacks and drinks were served before the dinner service.
Dinner time. To be honest, I was very disappointed. This was my first time taking SQ flight and I always heard that people have very good comments of SQ but seriously, the portion of their meals is simply HORRIBLE. I can literally finish the main dish within 2 bites. Again, literally. So anyway, the dinner I picked was braised chicken with fried garlic, vegetables and rice. The appetizer was roasted chicken with marinated vegetable salad. I was not really into it. Another dinner option was stewed beef with vegetables and mashed potatoes.
Ice cream was served as dessert.
Just to show you the route map on the IFE. We were over the centre of Australia when the meal was served.
This was a 7.5-hour flight and I was soon very hungry after the dinner service and I went to the gallery to see if they have any snacks or any food. I dropped by and no flight attendants seemed really care a pax was standing in front of them. But anyway I asked and they said they had no food other than the two meal services, but I may get the peanuts again if I wish. Never mind.
Hours later the second meal, aka refreshment or later dinner or another-two-bites were served. I picked the braised egg noodle instead of the beef and mushroom pie.
We arrived at Singapore Changi Airport after midnight and I stayed there for a night before I caught my connection back Hong Kong the another day.
The terminal was crowded than I thought, probably a lot of people stayed the night there due to the time zones.
Hope you guys enjoy pics and stay tuned for the report of the connecting SIN-HKG flight!
Sydney - SYD
Singapore - SIN
Honestly, maybe because I had so high expectations towards SQ that, I let myself down. People always commented it was such an outstanding airline, and I agreed it was very good, and the cabin/crew/IFE/meal services were of very professional standard. However, I have always heard people complaining the meals on CX and said SQ's ones were far better. I mean seriously? The portion for SQ is actually much lighter than that on CX, and it was not extraordinarily delicious, simply flight meal standard. I am not trying to initiate a debate here, or maybe I was just unlucky but sometimes I felt the differences for full-serviced Asian carrier actually were not as huge as people or media portrayed as. Maybe I can take more different airlines in the future and compare more.
