Conclusion

Singapore Airlines provided on-time departure and arrival , cabin service was good, seating was good with not a full flight, my neighbouring seat being empty. Entertainment was adequate for the duration of flight with programs catering to regional travellers. Singapore Changi is efficient. Mumbai Airport being newly constructed, everything was clean and tidy from check-in till boarding, check-in, security as quick. Immigration took longest to clear. Overall a satisfactory trip.
