Back to BKK for the flight home. SQ check-in desks are at Row K. Barely a queue for check-in 2 hrs before departure.
Took me about half hour just to clear security and immigration. Not too efficient….. Proceeded to the Miracle Lounge to check it out.
It was a fairly comfortable lounge with decent selection at the buffet.
Our light dinner before flight.
It was only a short walk to the departure gate D7, where SQ's oldest A330-300 9V-STC was waiting to load the SIN bound passengers.
18 November 2019 Singapore Airlines SQ 979 Bangkok (BKK) - Singapore (SIN) A330-300 9V-STC Economy Class Flight Time: 2H03M
Boarding commenced. Unlike the flight from SIN, a selection of newspapers are also available at the door along with the earphones.
Headed to my seat at the rear economy cabin.
Boarding in progress. It would end up a totally full flight again.
Legroom was decent. IFE was not the latest version, but still more than decent with tons of selection. Earphones were collected during boarding.
View out the window.
Boarding completed quite efficiently and hot towels (though lacking the signature scent) were distributed.
Flight map is not 3D, but I actually preferred this version. Less complicated and easy to understand.
Leading crew coming around to confirm the special meal orders.
CX arrived and parked beside. The carrier is currently struggling with the unstable situation in Hong Kong.
Safety video played
IFE shall be a Taiwanese comedy.
Pushed back and started the taxi to the runway.
Departure from Rwy19L into the dusk.
Enjoying my movie.
Dinner service commenced. Despite the full flight, service was quick and efficient, along with the usual SQ warmth.
Choices for mains were Braised beef with potatoes or Basil chicken with rice. It came with a side salad, roll and butter, cup of water and a thai dessert. I chose the beef, along with a ginger ale.
Salad was quite different from the usual, with a spicy tangy taste.
The beef was tender and flavourful.
My friend had the Basil chicken with rice. It was the exact same dish as what I had a couple of times before on TG on the same BKK-SIN sector. Well, the catering on this flight was by TG too, so no surprise. The dish was tasty but pretty spicy, just as how I remembered on TG.
As the dish was very spicy, it soon became my share while my friend ordered an instant noodle instead. Delivered with smiles by the leading crew.
The thai dessert was awesome!
Meal trays were cleared, and we still had about 40min to go.
Lavatory remained clean and well-stocked.
Flew past Changi Airport. The night view was beautiful!
Landing on Rwy02L.
Parked at Terminal 3.
View of my seat and disembarkation.
Bangkok - BKK
Singapore - SIN
Again, it was an enjoyable flight on SQ on this short sector. Service and catering were very good. Despite the age of this aircraft, cabin was still well-maintained, apart from the yellowish cabin lights. Despite the many LCC competition and possibly to match the service level of main competitor TG on the route, SQ continues to provide a high level of service on their short-haul flights.
