Final sector of this very long trip report! But before that, some plane-spotting at Incheon.
Really big brother beside little brother.
KE A333. Apparently some KE flights also departs from the Concourse Terminal.
An interesting world map made up of Korean characters.
Getting darker, and a CX A333 just arrived.
Soon, it was too dark to do any more plane spotting, and having done our shopping for some Korean skincare products, we proceeded to the newly opened Silver Kris Lounge. We would be spending the next 4hrs in the lounge!
Except for us, the lounge was totally empty! Most pax had departed on SQ15 to Singapore. Thus it was perfect to explore the new lounge! There is a big TV screen at one end of the lounge showing the news.
Lots of comfortable sofa and chairs down the length of the lounge.
A quite area at the end of the lounge, hidden behind the buffet area.
Flight information and newspapers/mag rack.
Work area with PCs available.
Now for the buffet offering. Some salad, nuts, olives, cheeses and crackers.
Sandwiches and bakery items.
Soup, instant noodles and two hot dishes.
Pasta with tomato sauce.
Nachos and warm apple pastry.
Cakes, macaroons and fruits.
Coffee and tea.
And the rest of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Not fancying any savory stuff at the moment, I had macaroons, fruits, pastries and some milk.
Unique to the Incheon Silver Kris Lounge is a free 15min facial massage service! The massage service is only available from 2pm-8pm and we were the last to try out the facial massage for the day.
After the massage, a complimentary cosmetic trial-pack was also given!
Time for a refreshing shower! There are two shower cubicles in addition to the normal toilets in the lounge. Each shower cubicle has fresh towels and amenities laid out. Definitely much better than the SFO lounge.
Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were available as well. The rain shower was more than welcomed to refresh myself!
About 2hrs before the scheduled departure time, the lounge gradually filled up with passengers, but still more than enough seats for everyone.The hot dishes were changed later in the evening, offering chicken wings and beef bulgogi.
Scones, cookies and green tea.
About 45min before departure, we decided to slowly proceed to the gate. Our plane had already arrived earlier. 9V-STC would be flying us on the final leg back to Singapore tonight.
17 March 2013 Singapore Airlines SQ 603 Seoul Incheon (ICN) - Singapore (SIN) A330-300 9V-STC Business Class
Boarding was just starting when we reached the gate. Boarded immediately into the regional-business class configured A333. Today, a chief stewardess, Korean LSS and a flight steward would be serving us in Business. The cabin ended up only half-full tonight.
Settling into my seat.
Welcome drinks offered. Being so late in the night, I opted just for an orange juice.
Menu was already placed at the seat. Lets see what was offered on the incoming flight.
And on tonight's flight. Only a sleeper-service offered, but was fine with me as I was going to nap till breakfast prior to landing.
A different white wine was offered compared to the previous SQ15 sector.
Orders were taken for the meal choice and the time to be served. Most pax, like me, opted to have their meals served before landing. Doors closed and we pushed back on the dot for the 6h hop to Singapore. A CX B772 was parked beside for the night.
It was only a rather short taxi to the runway and we took off from Rwy33L.
Korean night sky.
Immediately after the lights were turned back on, I tuned in to my half-completed cartoon movie and finished it before bedtime.
Had a hot chocolate as my post-takeoff/pre-bedtime drink.
Visit to the lavatory.
Cloth towels were not missing on this flight.
I went to sleep somewhere over the East China Sea.
While cruising at 38,000ft.
Had a rather restful 3hr sleep on the narrower but more comfortable regional J seats and when I woke, we had only 2hrs left into the flight.
Somewhere off the coast of Vietnam.
Crew started service about 1.5h prior to landing. First, hot towels and juices were offered. I had an orange juice.
Meal trays were than distributed along with cut fruits and bakery items. I chose the croissant and danish.
Fruits were fresh and sweet.
With the flaky croissant!
Cappuccino to start the day.
My partner ordered the Korean style herbal chicken with long cabbage and steamed rice. This was also a dinner option on the earlier SQ15. It came with kimchi and a side dish.
It might not be a breakfast meal, but it was rather tasty nonetheless.
I chose the Oriental prawn dumplings with sliced fish in superior soup, with noodles, vegetables and mushroom. It was served in a bowl with cut chilli at the side.
A wonderful dish! Cod fish slices were used and the dumplings were huge and delicious! Plus the warm soup was so comforting!
Verdict: Best ever breakfast dish had on a plane!
Service was conducted with only the reading lights switched on.
Approaching home soon…
Lights were switched on for landing preparations.
Row of empty sets behind us.
Pair of empty seats behind.
Approaching Changi with the Singapore City skyline in the distance.
Along East Coast Parkway.
The city is still asleep.
Landing on Rwy02L, about 30min earlier than scheduled!
My seat for the past 6 hrs.
Back in Changi and end of holiday.
And the SQ teddies from J Class bid a farewell to you here!
