Heading back to Haneda, it was a 13min monorail ride from the station near our hotel to the international terminal. The monorail statio is directly linked t the Departure hall and a couple of min after alighting from the monorail, we were at SQ's check-in counters at Row A.
Immigration and security was not too busy and soon we were doing a bit of last minute shopping at the duty free area.
Heading up to the ANA lounge to grab some light bites. I have been to this lounge a couple of time and knew what to expect. F&B is not bad for a first-timer, but will become quite repetitive for frequent visitors to the lounge as the food offerings rarely change much.
Star Wars figurines
Buffet offerings and the noodle bar
Another set of Star Wars figurine with Star Alliance FIDS.
A smaller F&B area at the other end of the lounge.
I have learnt not to binge too much in the lounge. This was half of what I used to have in the lounge.
The lounge has a great view of the tarmac and runway. Our A350 arrived just as I reached the lounge.
Left the lounge shortly before boarding commenced. FIDS.
Queue for boarding.
Boarding started on time and the blue cabin it was this evening!
26 June 2017 Singapore Airlines SQ 633 Tokyo Haneda (HND) - Singapore (SIN) A350-900 9V-SMC Business Class Flight Time: 6H46M
Welcomed at the door and entered the Business cabin. As reviewed by many, the A350 is fitted with the New Business Class long-haul seats, which is one of the most comfortable Business Class seats in the market.
It would be 12K for me on this mid-haul.
More shots of the seats and cabin.
From 12K, the engines are way behind.
IFE welcome screen, and of course a champagne to start.
New noise-cancellation headphones (a crew mentioned that they are from Hitachi) are in use. This fitted more comfortably than the Phitek headphones. There is also a volume adjuster on the headphones.
Magazines and stuff.
Menu for the flight
Selections on this flight.
And the incoming SQ632 SIN-HND sector.
The usual ritual of newspapers and hot towels offered, and doors were closed for departure. Safety video played.
It was only a short taxi to the runway.
Takeoff from Rwy16R. Unfortunately it was a very cloudy day and no views were to be had of Mt Fuji which is along the flight path after departure.
Shortly after takeoff, a inflight wifi promotional and instructional video was played.
Followed by the instructional video of the New Business Class seat.
Socks, slippers and eyeshades were handed out.
Time to start the IFE. There are a couple of movies I would like to watch, starting with Beauty and the Beast.
Pretty cloudy down there.
My post takeoff beverage of Singapore Sling arrived.
Followed by the signature satay service.
A quick visit to the lavatory between the two Business cabins. As usual, well-stocked with amenities.
View of the forward cabin. It was rather full in Business this evening.
Dinner is served.
Sticking with the Japanese theme, I went for the Hanakoireki menu. First up was the beautifully presented floral-shaped cold bento set. This was new as previously the cold starter bento was presented in a square shape. However, I felt the portion sizes have been reduced for the starter bento set. Taste wise was ok.
After the starter bento was cleared, the warm bento set was served, same presentation as before along with miso soup and green tea. It was not bad, though I find the meal served on ANA was a bit better taste wise.
Dessert was the Azuki bean ice-cream with green tea sauce.
The pacing of the dinner service was just right, and next up was the cheese and fruits. I accepted the cheese selection and picked the sole melon from the fruit tray.
Last glimpse of the sun.
Another visit to the lavatory, the one at the front of the aircraft. This particular lavatory is smaller than normal and does not even have amenities cabinets, Amenities were instead placed on a holder.
Forward galley, which is more of a stowage area rather than for F&B preparations.
Flipped my seat over to form the bed. For some reasons, the duvets on the seats were of the old Business Class colours and not the newer ones used on the New Business Class seats. Interesting that SQ would overlook this.
Crew came to take orders for coffee/tea and I requested for an iced mocha. First time I tried this onboard. Pralines were also offered.
Time for movie in bed! Started on the second movie, Logan.
A bottle of water was offered.
About 2 more hours to go after I finished with both movies. Channel-hopped through the IFE selection.
Towards the end of the flight, we requested for the 70th Anniversary SQ Teddies and the crew was nice enough to dig out a couple of sets for us!
All comfortable flights have to come to an end and soon the aircraft started descending into Changi.
Landing on Rwy02L right on schedule.
A short taxi to Terminal 3. Windows were fogged up due to the humidity outside.
Last look at my seat during disembarkation.
Thanks for reading this long report!
ANA Lounge Haneda - International
Tokyo - HND
Singapore - SIN
A very comfortable flight on SQ as usual, with the consistent SQ-formulated good and reliable service by the cabin crew. The expected high SQ standards were met, though not much difference from most other SQ Business Class flight experiences. Overall, it has always been a pleasure to fly with SQ Business Class.
