Greetings Flight-Report Community. Thanks for stopping by and having a look at this report, the third in the series.
For this report series I will be sharing a delightful and frivolous RTW journey that is highlighted by my first trips on Emirates and Japan Airlines. Spoiler alert: I was positively floored by both experiences.

I'm picking up the story in Singapore's Changi Airport, one of my favorite places in the world. I'm going to take you on a brief detour to the employee cafeteria at the airport. This is a fantastic place to visit on a stopover for a quasi-hawker center type meal. The prices are reasonable and there is good variety. The cafeteria is landslide in T2 near the parking garage.
Here a few pics of my journey there.
After my cravings for Singapore style flavors were sated I returned through immigration and to the SATS Premier Lounge. This is a terrible lounge. Very crowded, dirty, and with limited amenities. I felt like I walked into a lounge at MNL T1 or CGK.
Quick beer and then off to the gate.
SATS lounge is on the floor above the koi pond offering a nice view.
The flight was just about to board so the security line at the gate was minimal.
I was soon aboard the new-ish looking 737 with the Sky Interior.
Feline parked next door.
We were offered pre-departure beverages by the lovely flight attendant. She also asked what we would like to drink once airborne and if we would like to partake in the satay snack. Yes, please!
Goodbye Changi. This was my first transit in SIN. I prefer to stay longer!
Terminal layout on takeoff.
A little bit of Changi Village and Palau Ubin.
The beer I requested and the satay snack. Pretty great to get a hot snack on a 30 minute flight. The beer was Carlsberg, no Tiger or local. Strange.
On short final to KUL.
A sign in the KLIA Express station at KUL noting the Hindu festival of Deepavali.
I boarded the train and was at Sentral in 22 minutes or whatever they advertise. The queue there for a taxi was lengthy but made it to my hotel safely.

Thanks for coming along on this short hop.
The closing of the Golden Lounge at Changi is unfortunate as the contract lounge is not very pleasant.
The flight featured great service, a warm snack, and a moderately comfortable cabin. The seats have a footrest which doesn't seem to serve a purpose.
KUL is a great airport with frequent, fast train service to town.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next installment. Happy flying.
