It was a pretty long walk to transfer security, which was totally empty, and we proceeded to the Silver Kris Lounge for the short layover. The lounge was very crowded and packed full. Unless you are looking for some good F&B offerings, the crowded lounge definitely did not contribute to a relaxing ambience.

Into the Business Class cabin, back to the old regional seat which is being phased out. Though I still feel that this seat is pretty decent for short-hauls. A pillow and blanket is already placed on each seat.

Requested for a champagne, which unfortunately, had no bubbles… The entire tray of champagne was lacking the bubbles….

Headphones and menu. Yes, menu booklet is still available on this BKK-SIN flight, though I read that someone in J had the menu slip instead the month before.

Dinner service commenced shortly after departure. Due to the full load in Business, we only got our meal almost an hour after departure as we were the last few to be served.

As expected on the short haul, all courses were served on a single tray. I chose for the beef ribs, which came with a prawn starter and thai dessert.

The prawn salad was very fresh and refreshing.

Beef short ribs was very tender and flavourful. BKK catering certainly did not disappoint.

The thai dessert was really cute.
