Welcome to my latest report, about a return flight with KLM from Singapore to Amsterdam, after having spent a few days with fellow Flight Reporters. A bonus of the city is to be found at the end of this report!
SIN is very well connected to the city via the MRT and the transfer only costs SGD 3. - (2.50€). I was staying in a suite at the Marriott and they offer free transfers to and from the airport to their Platinum members staying in suites. I won't decline this offer ^^
Check in is performed within a few seconds, very efficient and friendly agent. Same for the police formalities. I was airside in no longer than 5 minutes.
Security is only performed at the gate some views from Terminal 1 were all AF and KL flights do leave. There are lots of flowers but it did not impress me more. After all I have read from Changi I was expecting more. Must not be in this Terminal ;)
The bright lights inside the terminal did not help to do a mini spotting session:
The terminal was pretty empty late in the evening:
The arrival hall:
Heading to the lounge:
Some views of it:
The lounge is spread over two floors and is very quiet, and will stay so until my departure. What to say about it? It's nice, peaceful but nothing to write a home about.
There are things to eat, nothing exceptional though:
Nothing to say about the soft drinks, there are plenty of. But the hard section is just a shame, you can judge:
My selection. The satays were awful, dry, hard, and uneatable. Given how good the one downtown were, I can't and want compare.
The sandwich was ok, but Lord, it's a sandwich. The desserts were below average.
Close to the boarding time I proceed to my gate.
Boarding starts as I finished my pictures, I board with the first passengers in order to get some cabin shoots before the plane fills:
It was like stepping aboard the MD11 when I saw the old seats. I thought that only the MD11 still had that kind of seats, I was wrong. That would be a big change compared to the full flat seats from Air France on the way down. But it is still better than flying coach ^^
Usual KLM amenity kit:
The fleet, without my favorite plane, the MD11 and the welcome Champagne (there was a choice between water, juice, bubbles or beer):
It was fresh and tasty. Just the amount of food that was needed. I really liked it. I took some sweet wine with it. As I finished my plate the steward did bring me the dessert straight after. That was another nice touch.
An infusion to finish the meal:
As I stood up to get my planejama (I claim the copyright for that word ^^), the purser comes through and thanks me for my loyalty. He was always available and to be seen in the J cabin. He'"/>
For the breakfast I took the eggs, which were good. The fruits, cheese and pastries were nice, I did not touch the yogurt.
Landing on time, two minutes before the STA.
As a bonus, here the Singapore Marriott:
Downtown / Marina Sands:
Gardens by the bay:
Chinatown / Little India:
Singapore was clean, lots of things to see, but will not stay as one of my favorite city.
Dedicated to my friend, Marathon, another active English publisher:
To conclude, a big thank you to Francis (Icare), Fabrice (OFFCM), William and his wife (AirCanada881), François and his wife (Marathon) for this FR Meet up. We had a really great time together. "/>
Independent The Skyview Lounge
Singapore - SIN
Amsterdam - AMS
Another nice flight with KLM, a very nice crew. Catering was really good, only the cabin was showing its age. But I slept really well so I can't give a bad rating here.
The lounge was sub-par, awful food, hard drink selection nonexistent, Wi-Fi almost dead, no French newspaper, staff disinterested.
