Introduction

This trip was undertaken in 2009. After returning from Beijing, see trip report : Shanghai Airlines FM 9108 PEK - SHA

It was time to return to Singapore. Since it was red-eye flight, didn't see much of the outside, was still dark on arrival in Singapore.

Only few flights leaving at the time, 2 EK's to Dubai, Turkish to Istanbul and SQ to Singapore and few domestic flights. The Shanghai airport was deserted.

Had arrived early to the airport and the check-in counter wasn't open.

Conclusion

Singapore Airlines provided consistent service, being a red-eye flight. Service was limited to meal and customer request, Drinks and water was supplied at night. Didn't watch have any entertainment as I wanted to rest.

Shanghai Pudong was not busy as peak had passed, immigration, security didn't take very long.

Singapore Changi was quick immigration as I didn't require visa.
