We are in part 2 now, BKK-SIN on SQ Business Class, this is to connect my on-going sector to London

Woke up at 6:30 and arrive the BKK airport at 7:30

SQ is using Aisle K in Bangkok airport, quite a number of passengers were checking-in at the time

Business Class check-in counter for flight SQ 973 to Singapore

Passed the immigration by using the fast lane, finally I can find the way to SilverKris Lounge

Entrance

Still have some empty seats but all were occupied half hours later

25 June 2011

Bangkok (BKK) – Singapore (SIN)
Airline: Singapore Airlines
Flight: SQ 973
Aircraft: 777-200
Registration: 9V-SRF
Seat: 15K (Business)
Gate: D2
Arriving Gate: B5

Gate D2 is quite near to the lounge, should be a dedicated gate for SQ

Boarding Pass and the Fast Track Pass
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P209.jpg

9V-SRF, the 2-Class 777-200 normally for regional shuttle
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P210.jpg

Gate area, business class passengers are ready to board soon
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P211.jpg

Found my seat 15K, the seating pitch on this regional configuration is far more than CX old regional business class

The flight was totally packed in both Economy and Business Class, and we leave the Gate on time
A320 from Bangkok Air was leaving before us

After takeoff, the crew was busy to distribute the Brunch
Sliced fresh fruit
Omelet with chicken sausages, roasted tomato and potato cake
Yam charlotte
Typical breakfast items, the omelet was a bit dry but still OK to eat. One thing I don’t understand is, why airlines would choose hash brown for one of the breakfast items as they all know they cannot make it crisp? I would prefer the fried/stir-fried potato pieces rather than the soften/moisturized hash brown

After the meal, a snap of the cabin

The seat control buttons. Not a bad seats but I think 1-2 inches wider would be better for me
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P223.jpg

We arrived in SIN Terminal 3 after 2 hours 10 mins, no queue at the immigration so I stand in front of the belt just 5 minutes after the door open
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P224.jpg

My luggage was amount the first to out, and I was on the way to the Crowne Plaza Hotel connected to SIN Terminal 3
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Europe2011/P2/P225.jpg

I requested a room with a runway view, when I arrive the receptionist told me the room was not ready yet, so I decide to get another room to take a bath ASAP since I want to hang out to the city

Inside the room

I TOTALLY agree about the hash browns...if you can't make food crispy...don't serve crispy food!

I also dislike when the seat controls are on the inside part of the arm rest...it is too easy to accidentally hit a button with your thighs if you are fidgeting or if you have things in your pocket like a wallet or mobile phone...or random airline items that have been "liberated"...

Great 2nd installment to your Europe series. SQ's J product looks pretty good, The presentation of the meal is absolutely fantastic. Shame about the hash browns though.

Looking forward to part 3.

Hi sutrkhk,

Good continuation of your story.

The aircraft looks neat and tidy although I note the seven across seating in J. This is a source of criticism of another well-known carrier.  

The hotel looks swish but I am not sure that I could live very long with that huge floral pattern.

Regards,

Quokka

Hi

Another nice part of your new trip report series. SQ's J-product seems to be a bit out-dated compared to its couterparts tor at least in the 772).

Like the hotel pics in SIN


Greetings
Marc

Service was OK for that short but full flight, and I didn't expect much

Totally agree, as I have a big bottom, I found it is very hard to use the seat control and IFE control inside the arm rest, and I even tell myself not to move much or I will press the button accidently!

I think the cabin is OK for the regional flight within 4 hours, and the seat pitch is quite decent!

With more A330-300 and 787-9 coming in the future, they are likely go to SQ's budget airlines soon

Nice continuation to the series, thanks for sharing.

All looks ok, not keen on the 2-3-2 in J though it is just regional so I can live with that I suppose.
