Boarding


It was really exciting that I could book this flight at a normal price, for the flight SQ001 is used to be more expensive than the other flights to Singapore. SQ001 is a rather special flight, as it serves from San Francisco to Singapore, via Hong Kong, but allowing passengers to book the second route segment. I was once considered booking the SQ857 for my trip, which is one hour later to my flight, but after considering the comfortless and the interior products of the flight equipment, I finally decided to choose the SQ001, which is served with the 777-300(ER) with a 3-3-3 configuring, instead of the 777-200(ER) for SQ857.

Breakfast: Traditional Chinese cuisine:  dim sum, it was hot enough, but the taste was somewhat different from the dim sum I used to eat in the traditional Chinese restaurant, but generally they were good enough.

Conclusion

The flight was smooth and pleasant, I greatly appreciate the 3-3-3 configurations of the 777-300(ER) for Singapore Airlines, unlike the 3-4-3 for most other carriers, it provides a comfort flight experience to me. Besides, I love the IFE onboard, lots of interesting movies, really hard to choose one for the 3 hours flight. The cabin crews were friendly and helpful, and efficient enough to response my needs, appreciate them. Generally, it worth being one of the best airlines worldwide and I would still considering SQ as my first choice for this route.
