When I shown up at the gate and the agent told me the flight would be ready to board in five minutes
During boarding, I saw my target, 77W from Egypt
Turn left here please!
The leading steward led me to my seat 1K.
Normally I would choose the last row in the cabin, but as many said, there is special meaning at row 1 in 747
First Class Cabin
View from my seat, the only other passenger in First was in 3A
Safety Instructions Card
We departed on time, and the airport was quiet at the 16:00 period, so we were airborne within few minutes
The service started, FA assist me to take out the IFE unit
Noise Cancelling Headphone
Nuts and Champagne
Golden Crispy Cup with “Miang Lao” (Minced Pork wrapped with Pickled Cabbage)/
Sweet Crispy Rice Noodles with Tofu/Crispy Minced Siam Perch with Thai Chili Paste
Table was set and meal started, you can see how large the table is.
Braised Eight Treasure Seafood Soup
Just a normal soup in Chinese style, not so fancy about it
TG reservation contacted me via e-mail a week before the flight about the pre-book meal, I chose the following:
Lobster Thermidor with Duchess Potatoes
The portion was small but the taste was better than those in SQ
Cheese and Fresh Fruits
Glutinous Rice with Longan in Coconut Milk
Delicious Banana Confection Topped with Coconut
After the meal, walked around the cabin
Self-serviced corner, but I believe it is only for decoration since the FA can satisfy all your need
We started to descent to HKG, and once stepped out from the gate 44, the ground staffs were waiting for us already
Golf cart for First Class passengers directly to the immigration, nice touch of TG!
SQ regional J, nothing special for that 2 hours flight.
TG F, brilliant experiences starting from their lounge, great services, great food and excellent spa. With only 2 passengers in First, the cabin service was very good too. While waiting for the luggage, I chatted with the other First passenger, who did the same routing as me today as SIN-SQ-BKK-TG-HKG, and he was from LAX-NRT-SIN in F two days before, we got the same conclusion, although SQ have the better equipments, but the services from TG is much more heart-touching, and the food were better too! In addition, we were impressed by the free shuttle from the gate to the immigration even in out-station, good job TG!
I can foresee my next trial on TG would be on their new A380, and I have a feeling that they will put it in BKK-HKG-BKK for initial period.
PS: Hope Bangkok would be alright by the flooding situation now.
Here is the end of this trip report, thanks very much for reading and I hope you enjoyed it. I am planning my next interesting trip now, please stay tuned!
