This return journey to and from Taiwan gave me the opportunity to review both regional Business Class cabins currently offered by Singapore Airlines on the Boeing 787-10 and Airbus A330-300 respectively.

Fully aware that the regional Business Class on the Boeing 787-10 and Airbus A350-900 is far superior, I embarked on this journey giving the 2006 Business Class on the Airbus A330-300 the benefit of the doubt.

As the flight departed at 8-ish in the morning, I elected to reach Singapore's Changi Airport Terminal 3 at 5am to check out the Business Class section of the SilverKris lounge as my prior experiences have only ever been in The Private Room.

The Breakfast buffet was still in full swing.

One gets to indulge when one is on vacation, I suppose.

Today's special was Mee Rebus. It paired surprisingly well with champagne.

As the boarding gate was in Terminal 1, I began the long trek but not before stopping at the cactus garden to get a preview of the aircraft that I was about to board.

After the cabin lights were dimmed, I snuck in a movie.

I had timed it pretty well that by the time "Venom" was done, decent had begun into TPE.



Arrivals was a mess as there were a few flights landing together, coupled with limited immigration counters.
