Well, it looks like BBC's Fast Track program had a camera crew on the inaugural LAX-SIN. I missed the most of it and thus only saw the last few bits, which dealt with the IFE system & onboard internet.
FASTTRACK recommends the best ways to stay healthy during long flights
With the launch of the longest air route in civil aviation history, this week’s edition of FASTTRACK lists some of the best ways to stay healthy when taking such a lengthy flight.
Mindful of the current concerns about deep vein thrombosis, presenter Akhtar Khan boards Singapore Airlines’ new 19-hour record-breaking flight from Los Angeles to Singapore. He has some tips and also asks the cabin crew how they cope with the demands of each journey.
Filling time during flights is often an issue for passengers and BBC World’s weekly travel programme looks at fresh innovations for in-flight entertainment, along with a few other exciting ways to keep people occupied at 30,000 feet.
FASTTRACK’s consumer expert, Karen Bowerman, tackles the tricky subject of seat pitch – the space between each row of passengers – and there’s all the latest news from the world of travel and holidays.
So, have anyone else seen it, and should I be bothered to set the VCR to tape it?

Fasttrack gives me the severe irrits - it is so glib and comes across as so all-knowing, and they barely brush the surface and certainly don't give the subjects they cover anything like they deserve. If they do drag on a so-called 'expert' its usually the Aviation correspondent for the Daily Mirror, whose experience in the field is limited to getting plastered in the Club Europe lounge and trying to scrounge upgrades.
