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.

The aircraft serving SQ001 that day, just arrived at HKG from San Francisco, and will continue its' flight to Singapore after loading.
The loading of my flight was't full, lot's of empty seats for this flight, I could occupy the whole row of seats, what a comfy! Besides, amenity kits were also there on every seats before boarding.
The IFE system was great, sensitive and entertaining, lot's of latest movie choices with different languages.

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.

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.
