SQ71-8:15 AM flight-Gate 4-9V-SQF-B777-200-Economy Class
Me and My mom started off from home. We reached the airport with the other people at about 6:00 AM. Before we went inside the terminal, I could see a NW B747-400 bound for somewhere in Japan and a JAL 777 or 767 (Anyone help me? I think reg was JA8974?) also taxing also bound for Japan. Since it was a group check in, we had no FF miles.
We went inside the terminal, where I got a Mango Juice and a cinnimon roll. I saw a China Southern A320 and our plane. I looked at the nosewheel doors and it had the letters "QF" on it. So it was 9V-SQF. We then went to Gate 4 where a very fierce looking triple seven was looking at me and one of my friends.
We boarded the plane and I traded seats twice to get to seat with my best friend on this flight. The flight was about 97-99% full.
I looked at the movies. All of them were dull. The safety video was shown and burning towels were given out. Headphones were also handed out.
Take off was LOUD! We were in the air and immediatly my friend started playing the Games on Krisworld. I'm not good at video games, so I just watched him. Orange Juice or beer was also served. Menus were handed out. The entree was Chicken or Filipino Fried Noodles. I chose the chicken which was really good.
I then kept watching my friend, for he is very good at those games. He played for the whole flight, only stopping to eat breakfast!!!!!!!
I then went to the bathroom, then I came back to my seat only to fall asleep. I awoke when we were descending. Descending was rough but landing was smooth.
In Changi, I saw a BA 744 with a "Benyhorn" tail, couple of SQ 744s and 772s, and a CX 772. We were parked between the CX 772 and a SQ 744 bound for Frankfurt.
The First Thing I noticed in Changi was that it was very empty compared to last time. Anyway, we cleared immigration quickly. But was slowed down at the baggage claim because we were one of the first to check in.
Return Report Coming

What time did you arrive in Changi? Changi is busy but it deoends on the time. From the evening till night Changi is at it's busiest, morning is relatively busy too but when it comes to the afternoon, very very quiet.

You forgot to tell us the date!
Actually SQ71 should be operated by the Celestar usually except on Saturdays and Sundays due to higher demand.
Wish i could take the Celestar one day before SIA turns them into A345!

Just Back From School, answer a few questions. The date was Nov 23. And 9V-SPK, if you check the SQ schedules, they have changed the SQ71 flight into a 772.
Mr. BA, we landed at about 11:30 AM SIN time. I presume we landed on 02L.
Zizou, I can remember few games. They are:F-Zero, Super Tennis, Super Bonk, Final Fight, Super Mario and more.

Abacus is a system you use in most travel agencies (At least here in Hong Kong) for booking flights, hotel reservations, car rentals , cruises so on.You could nearly get everything you need except the total number of passengers who booked the flight, onboard the plane and the registration of the plane and maybe a bit more i can't remember.
But you could check if the flight has seats avaliable, that's the most important.Also scheldues and type of aircraft.
