Ice Cream On SQ

Hello fellow A.nutters. I have always wondered why SQ only serves ice cream for dessert in Y and C. I usually read that people dislike their ice cream because it's rock hard and that it only comes in small portions served in an egg cup. Other carriers have a full dessert cart plus ice cream on the side (in Business). In economy ice cream would be acceptable but not in business class. Is it cheaper for them to serve ice cream only?

In Y i got a apple sponge dessert and a small tub of chocolate Hagen daaz ice cream. The ice cream was hard but it soon softened and we had metal cutlery which made it easy it eat. So as in Y we got a dessert and ice cream I would assume C would also get more.

I have travelled in Y on SQ, and they have a regular dessert that comes with the meal, and they serve ice creams separately. Noticed this on CX too

I believe this was a practice on KLM transatlantic flights too though it has been a while since I last traveled with them. I'm not sure if it currently is.

It was ice cream allright, but nothing to write home about.

Same on QF they serve ice cream usually after trays have been cleared, all their ice creams are wrapped and on a stick.

Ice cream is rock hard because its kept on dry ice onboard.

Trust me, its better to have rock hard ice cream that you can eat later than to have milky liquidy stuff.

And it doesn't take ice cream THAT long to melt!

I totally agree with the ice cream as dessert in JCL, I always though that lacked imagination. Flown the 777-300ER's new JCL and they served ice cream there too.

Virgin Atlantic serves Haagen Daaz icecream. They give you too big scoops in a glass bowl with chocolate sauce, whipped creams, and a cherry on top! Virgin has the best food of all carriers!

On a JAL flight from NRT-SIN, we were served an ice cream sandwich after the main meal, which of course was rock hard. It was good, although I cracked my bottom retainer after the first bite.  biting

I've seen lots of different types of ice cream on SQ, across all classes, and it depends on the station it was uplifted from. It ranges from the classic Cornetto cones, Vienetta, Ben and Jerry's, Haagen Dazs, to name a few.

At Qabtas we serve Ice Creams on ALL lunch and dinner services. It varies out of ever port.

To name a few...

SYD/BNE/MEL : Splice or Magnums

PER: Trumpets (Mint or Vanilla)

SIN: Cant remember name, but its Vanilla and chocolate.

HKG: Hagen Dazs

HNL: Twix Icecream

JNB: Grapfruit (Is by far the worst icecream we serve)

LHR: Mars Bar ice creams (Think this has changed now ThomasCook will gve you a better insight)

LAX: Three Fruits Icecream QF8

AKL: Arnotts Milk Chocolate

On other sectors, it is on the tray...these include, Coconut roughs, Marble Cake, Lemon CHeeseCake, etc...

Kind Regards...

PS: SQ and QF both have other options on their trays which are Cheese and Crackers and After dinner Mints. These are usually classed as the other dessert item.

I"m pretty sure it's Walls (called Streets in Australia) Magnum. SQ serves the same stuff ex SIN as well, since both companies use SATS as their caterer.

Haagen Dazs is served ex HKG and HKG only. Seems like QF does the same ex HKG as well. Is it cheaper there or something? I remember in the late 1990s SQ served Haagen Dazs and Movenpick ice cream ex SIN to Y pax, but along with champagne, that was slowly phased out.

For Y I think ice cream is fine. For J and F any airline should really be more creative. At least have the ice cream served in a bowl with proper toppings and sauces.

Haagen Dazs is rock hard for a reason; it doesn't have algae-derived gelatin to keep it soft. Just leave it sitting out for a few minutes and you'll be fine.

Yeah, what I am aware on the Delhi flights, Singapore Airlines gives us Ben and Jerrys although I must say that I hate the flavour. What I am being told recently is that they don't serve Hagan-Daaz and Movenpick in Economy Class anymore, it is now used for Business and First Class only.

The only problem is on very short sectors! On the SIN-DPS run they serve Ben & Jerrys after lunch/dinner and there is not much time left to let it become soft and eat it....I place the ice next to my cup of coffee or hold it in my hands!
I find the ice cream desert quite cheap in C. The B&J' or Haagen Dazs plastic cups are not very stylish.
On NZ I had a great ice cream in a proper bowl



There is a better way to fly

Strange that SQ have stopped serving top brand ice cream in Y. I know that AF gives out Häagen Dazs minis (almost like a Popsicles) in Y. Swiss serves Mövenpick Carmelita in Y on both long haul and on short flights. Does anyone know if they still have Mövenpick in Y?

If you fly BF on CO out of Houston (IAH) you are served Blue Bell. Probably some of the best ice cream in the world.

25 SATX : I suggest you read the packaging list. Blue Bell has far too many ingredients for such simple flavors.
