Hello everyone and welcome to my flight report!

This is the inbound flight back to Bangkok after spending my weekend in Singapore.
Singapore is a nice place to visit. It features one of my favourite skylines along with Hong Kong. A walk around the Marina Bay area is a great way to spend pastime.



The routing :
TG413 BKK-SIN C A340-600 —> http://flight-report.com/en/report-9402.html
TG410 SIN-BKK C B777-300 —> You are here!

I took the TG410 which was the THAI’s last flight of the day leaving at 8.50pm. I arrived at the Changi airport just some time before the sunset.

Changi is undoubtedly one of (if not) the best airport in the world.

I headed to the Premium check-in lounge where TG and many other airlines’ J pax were invited to check-in. It was a nice and cozy room with some averages and press. Even though most one us wouldn’t spend more than 5 minutes in the ‘check-in’ lounge, it was always a nice touch. (Again the only pic of this lounge)

The security was a breeze with a dedicated lane just behind the check-in lounge. The immigration took a while. So many people.

I then headed to the which was in a quite isolated area of the terminal. This was one of the worst lounges I had been to. It was a of a good size with all the amenities you would expect from a business class lounge. The catering, on the other land, was pathetic. It consisted of finger dumpling, sandwiches etc. It might be due to this being the last flight of the day as I mentioned so they did not bother refill the food.
Plus, there was no restroom in the lounge. The agent at the reception was not unfriendly but she looked so tired and ready to go home whenever she could.

Sorry for the bad photo quality

Boarding was scheduled at gate D4 where there were already a lot of people waiting at the holding area. This must have been one full flight. Boarding priority was respected by the gate agent, but not so much by some of the passengers who urged to the gate trying to get it (and failed).

Today’s bird was a Boeing 777-300 HS-TKC named ‘Kwan Mueng’ which literally means ‘City Spirit’. It was 14 years old (delivered in 1999). This B777-300 features 34 angle-flat business class seats with 2-3-2 configuration except for the bulkhead row (row 11) which is 2-2-2 and 330 economy class seats with 32inch pitch.

I was welcomed a a friendly flight attendant and settled down at my seat which would be 12J for today. This is what the seat looked like :

Despite her age, this plane featured the new IFE.

The crew came around for the welcome drink which would be an orange juice for me.

When we reached the cruising altitude, the dinner service began with a nut packet and a drink refill.

Conclusion

Another nice flight with THAI.

The seat was comfortable for a short flight.

The crew seemed tired and when asked they said it was their fourth flight of the day so I quite understood them.

The appetiser was good though not great. The pre-ordered salmon dish was edible. The dessert was so-so.

IFE was of great contents with good choice of Thai music.

Arrived on time.
