End of Trip
Mumbai - BOM
Singapore - SIN
Singapore Airlines service was excellent, as usual looked after their customers well. Mumbai Airport was undergoing cosmetic renovation as the terminal was going to be demolished. Singapore Airport was efficient, immigration, baggage was quick. Taxi was available outside the terminal building. Had a pleasant flight flying SQ.
