I flew the first SQ flight from Singapore to Bangalore last year. We were given nice gifts at the gate and on arrival at Bangalore were garlanded and given rose etc. Other than that everything was normal and crew treated it like a regular flight. Since we reached around midnight obviously there was no water cannon salute.

29th March 98: The inaugural flight of LH408 from DUS to EWR operated by an Airbus A340-300. LH switched from JFK to EWR from this day on. This flight was on invitation by LH and I spend a wonderful weekend in NYC!
Born to fly! It's more than a passion - it's a yearning!! At home in DUS(Dusseldorf)!

Yo everyone, I was on the 1st flight on Jetstar on Tuesday!!! A birthday present from my friends as it was also my birthday when Jetstar entered service on the 25th, and according to the schedules our flight (JQ502, Sydney - Gold Coast (Coolangatta) was the first JQ flight to depart in Australia and the first to land too! (Though the media mentioned nothing about it!)
Flight itself was great...took numerous photos (Probably post it on the trip report sectionlater). But the meaning of the present itself was much more than anything else in the world!

I was on AQ's first flight out of SMF last year. It went from SMF-BUR (where my mom lives) and then continued on to OGG. Even those of us just going to BUR got fresh flower leis, buffet breakfast in the terminal, and they had hula dancers and a Hawaiian band. Spectacular!

Back in the fall of 1978, I flew on Air Florida's (QH) inaugural flight MIA-IAD. It was also the first interstate flight for QH. Later on, I also flew on their inaugural international flight MIA-FPO. Those were the days.....
