SQ seems to keep its quality since 2009, except its IFE gradually out-dated. And A meal looks delicious.
Punctuality, good customer service, cleanliness in cabin, wide choice of entertainment. Singapore Airlines had always been a pleasure to fly.
I enjoyed the no hassle travel with SQ. Thanks for your comment.
