Light refreshment was served before arrival in Singapore
Over Batam- Indonesia
The crew distributed the immigration forms, I wasn't carrying a pen, asked if I could borrow pen, was told by the crew member that he had passed the pens out and he can't provide the pen. I had to borrow pen from my fellow passenger to fill the form. Having flown Singapore Airlines numerous times, If customer makes a request for a pen , it gets provided, point of difference in customer service between the two carriers.
Experience this before with Qantas, when flying to Hong Kong based on that had stopped flying with them for many years.

End of Trip
Brisbane - BNE
Singapore - SIN
Flying with Qantas was a good till I asked for additional service. Not providing a simple request was a big letdown in service. Brisbane airport transit was easy, trouble is have to take a 15 min bus ride from Domestic to International Terminal. Immigration and security check was quick.
Singapore Changi was quick, efficient to travel through. Always had positive experience flying through Singapore
