Introduction


Had a fun 5 days in Phuket but it's time to go home now. I haven't been to Phuket for years so it's nice to see it again although after the pandemic, the locals are still recovering.

check-in


SQ uses Row H for check-in. Seems like the flight will be full so there was a long queue to check-in.

Boarding pass for this sector today.

The rest of the airport is comparatively quieter. SQ also uses Row F but for the earlier flight.

Nothing much around so time to head airside.

Airside


HKT is pretty busy as well now.

Duty-free shopping and F&B outlets dot the entire terminal airside.

Boarding seemed like a two-step process. After checking boarding passes, we were guided to another holding area on the lower floor.

After which we were then allowed to board after 15 minutes. Maybe there was a miscommunication and the plane just wasn't ready.

On-board


Making my way down the aisle.

Again, I decided to visit the lavatory before the flight to avoid the crowd.


photo img_4268photo img_4269

I boarded early so the other passengers weren't here yet.

Leg space is probably slightly below average(?), acceptable on this short flight.

In the seatback pocket, you get a safety information card, a KrisShop magazine and a airsickness bag.

The last passengers filter onboard.

Once the doors were closed, we pushed back and the safety video plays from the screens which unfold from above.

The crew making sure everyone is wearing their seatbelts before take off.

Once we get to cruising altitude, the crew begins handing out the meals.


photo img_4281

Today's meal is fried rice with sweet and sour fish. I also got a nice cake for dessert.


photo img_4282photo img_4283

An uneventful flight means that after under 2 hours, we have landed in Singapore.

Disembarkation


Making my way down to immigration.


photo img_4288

I'll be collecting my bags from Belt 38 today.

I was tempted to get some duty free but I didn't see anything which interested me.

    Well said. Again the catering it below normal SQ standards, but still looks quite decent.

    I hope I get to try the MAX 8 eventually.

    Would be great to see a review on the SQ MAX 8, which have upgraded cabins.

    Thanks for sharing!
