Conclusion

Singapore Airlines had always been a pleasure to fly. Always experienced good customer service, cleanliness in cabin, wide choice of entertainment and most important punctuality.

Sydney Airport was not busy in during the non-peak time and was easy to fly out from. Singapore Changi is an excellent airport for transit with wide choice to keep one engaged while waiting to board the next flight.
