This flight was a scheduled Boeing 737-800 Aircraft on Sunday 09 December 2018 . However, luck came along when my aircraft was upgraded to a 737 MAX 8. The cabin was colourful and fresh and I loved the vibe from the Cabin. Our Actual Flying Time was : 1hr 26mins, and we arrived on time. The flight began with boarding at 0640, when the sun was beginning to rise. We were boarding at Gate E1. After a decently long taxi, we departed via runway 02C. The flight made a left turn for Phuket.

After takeoff and ascend, the cabin crew began meal service. MEAL options: Spicy Chicken with Rice and Veges or Chicken Bolognase with Egg. I opted for the spicy chicken. It wasn't fanciful, but it also had no areas for improvement from me so meal was I guess Perfect? It came with a bun, condiments and I had apple juice for my drink. The service was very basic. There were 4 Stewards and 1 Stewardess in this flight, poor lady. And, the Crew-In -Charge was not wearing the Plum Dress/Tie. He was an Acting Crew in Charge for this Phuket TURN which was interesting. Till today, I have not seen a Crew In Charge for MAle Stewards in Silkair, Have You? Comment below. The crew showed nothing special in their service, not much smiles but it was fine because it was an early morning flight. Like who wouldn't be tired right? And they had to operate MI749 back as well before they could complete their rest. We were done with the meals about 50 minutes into the flight. The rest of the flight was just me watching the silent features on the overhead screens and staring into the sky beautiful morning sky.

We descended into Cloudy Phuket and arrived after 87minutes in the air via Runway 09, approching via Nai Yang Beach. Then it was quick taxi and we got off 9V-MBE, the newest aircraft in Silkair as of 09/12/18 . It was a good flight with Silkair!

    Hi Haresh, thank you for report on Silk Air. I flew Silk Air to Kota Kinabalu this year, everything was so-so without any surprise. I hoped they would move the routes to SQ for the merger of SQ and MI. A bit sad that SQ decided to move some routes to Scoot instead of SQ! That means frequent flyers of other Star Alliance carriers can't enjoy the benefits!

    Hey Haresh! Welcome onboard!

    luck came along when my aircraft was upgraded to a 737 MAX 8

    I hope those are not equipped with THAT notorious antistalling system that we all have heard of after the Lion Air accident!! :O

    meal was good

    I always get depressed after reading about the great meal options for economy class in some Asian carriers. In my side of the world, meal/snack service is LOUSY. :(

    Thanks for sharing! :)
