Hello everyone! And welcome to my first trip report on airliners.net! Well, my first post on any forum here in fact. I’ve been an ardent fan of airliners.net for more than 10 years but (horrors of horrors!) only discovered the trip report forum 2 months ago. DO NOT JUDGE ME. For the record, I was disgusted at myself too… I still remember a time when I was twelve and internet meant that crappy dial-up thing which made funny noises and I would load 10 pictures of the latest jet around (764ER), go for dinner, and return to find the last picture still loading. Tragic, I know. I would then marvel at those awesome raked wingtips for about… well, 1 minute… and that was it for the night before I was shoo-ed off to bed to prepare for school. Fast forward 10 years and we now have wifi capability on aircrafts (well, not on my plane today though…) and my (medium-sized) pictures load fully before I can even click on the ‘Large’ button! (sorry, no full-screen for me since I ain’t a first-class member. Hey! I’m new! ) Ah, but I digress…

So, coming back to my trip report…

Background

It was that time of the year again, where my family attempts to plan a family holiday. Yes, attempt. Because of work, school, wives, husbands, and a baby (only the ‘school’ belongs to me…), it is nearly impossible for us to travel together. In the end, we left the two older (married) siblings and baby behind and it was decided upon that we embark on a short hop to Hong Kong with just the old folks and my other sister. As the airplane geek, I was tasked to book the flights and hotels…   

As frequent fliers, my parents together literally have more than a million krisflyer miles to spare (I kid you not, they do.) And they were kind enough to not put my sister and I at the back of the plane this time and ‘meet y’all after immigration!’ and gave me permission to redeem Business Class seats for all of us (whoopee!) In normal cases, we would have taken the 9.30am A380 flight. However, SQ’s booking system (in June) showed that I could immediately confirm 2 seats on the 8.30am flight, and waitlist the other 2, while I would have had to waitlist all 4 seats on the A380 flight. Well, I initially waitlisted all 4 of us on the A380. But half an hour later, I thought of my mother’s incredulous ‘ARE YOU SURE WE CAN GET ALL 4 seats???’ look and this instantly made me decide to cancel the waitlist and change our bookings to the 8.30am option. At the very least, the 2 of them would get their business class seats and my sister and I would sit at the back in the worst case scenario… In any case, 1 month later, our waitlisted seats were confirmed.

Choosing seats and booking the cook!


The day dawn bright and… no, scratch that. It was still completely pitch dark outside as my iPhone alarm rang to the tune of Marimba. It’s so annoying! But I suppose that’s why it wakes me up…


Even my clock was confused at this hour.


Took a shower, packed my toiletries, and it was off to the airport in a cab that we had pre-booked the night before.

Traffic was good this morning and we made it to the airport in a respectable 25 minutes.



Courtesy of my parents’ frequent flier status, we were able to check in at the dedicated First Class area!



It was rather empty at this hour. Most regional business flights would be taking off from Terminal 2 and not Terminal 3 where my flight would be taking off from today…



After a quick check-in by a sleepy, dead-sounding zombie, oops, I mean agent, we made our way to the dedicated immigration area for first class passengers.



It was a fuss free affair and it was straight to the escalators up to the lounges.



We made our way to the First Class lounge, but found the dining area completely full. There were, however, many couches with side tables that were empty but were unfortunately not ideal for eating a proper breakfast. So we left and made our way to…

This lounge
Cute figurine


It was thankfully rather empty. Breakfast was an assortment of local dishes that looked rather oily..


So I stuck to a slice of toast and a latte. After all, I was looking forward to my lobster on board! –rubs my hands gleefully-

Not long later, it was time to leave the lounge and to make our way to our gate, gate A19.

Yikes. Looks like a long walk
Thankfully we have the sky train  On the train


Had I been travelling alone, I would have 1. Left the lounge earlier 2. Taken the long walk to admire the aircrafts on stand. From the train, I had spied an A380 taxiing in (late arrival from European destination??), one of SQ’s albino 77Ws and an assortment of A330s and 777s. The only non-SQ plane was a Jet Airways A330. In any case, we were zipped to our gate in 5 minutes and then it was time to queue for security.

Code-shared flight with Air Canada
Long security lines hmm...


Once through security, it was straight to the gate as we were just 20 mins shy of departure time. I guess my parents travel so often that they time their movements through the airport with precision. Not to mention I don’t think they give two hoots of what plane they are sitting on except that ‘I think we sat on a 777 today again’. Well, I wouldn’t fault my dad. The probability of getting a 777 on an SQ flight is probably 0.99.

At the gate

The flight
SIN-HKG
SQ860
9V-SRM

Today my fight would be flown by one of SQ’s refurbished Boeing 777-200(derated)ERs. Again.



Flash back to more than 10 years ago. I remember travelling with my parents on their business trips to various countries. The stubby SQ A310 was the bane of my life. On a 4 hour flight to China, I was bored out of my mind with no IFE on board. I also remember flying in the nose of the B743 on short sectors to Jakarta and wondering ‘where is the wing of this plane?!’ on the upper deck and thinking ‘hmm those humans look like toys…’ Then the A340s were introduced when I was 6 and I remember wondering (yes, at that young age), why we weren’t taking off yet after jiggling on the runway for what seemed like ages. It was only years later on airliners.net did I read that A340s were in fact powered by hairdryers! Explains so much. The 777s were introduced when I was 7, and I remember taking one and practically gawking at the HUGE engine during take off until my neck ached. I longed to always sit the 777 and I marveled at how the twin-engine replaced the quads on trans-pacific flights (it scared me a little at first to only have 2 engines powering us on our way to Vancouver). However, in the next 10 years, I would come to realize that ALL I was going to be sitting on was the Boeing 777 for years to come and I started to hate that aircraft. Whether it was regional flights, mid haul, or long haul, I always seemed to get thrown onto a 777. The occasional flight to London and Japan on the 747 weren’t entirely welcomed either due to the inferior IFE and more uncomfortable seats (in economy, as the children were old enough to travel on our own while the old folks sat up front or up on top). I had the pleasure of flying the A345 on a short flight to Jakarta, and on both LAX and EWR sectors. I. ALMOST. DIED. After the 19 hours flight to New York in Premium Economy. Never again. Of course little did I know then that the A345 would be a much-despised plane by airlines waiting to get rid of them, and that the 19 hour flight would be my last. In any case, the A330s have since arrived and I adore them. But considering they are to be the staple of SQ’s regional fleet, I’m glad to be back on a 10 year-old 777 before they are eventually replaced. So, if you are still with me at this point, here’s on to the flight, finally.

A short walk down a freezing aerobridge led me to the door of my plane for the day. A male flight attendant greeted me “Welcome on board Mr XX”, and directed me to my seat which was not too difficult to find.

SQ’s regional business class seats
Plenty of legroom


I have sat these same seats on the A330s and seem to recall having less legroom. I wonder if it has anything to do with SQ squeezing 5 rows in the front cabin on an A330, and only 3 rows on the 777. The centre column does get 4 rows though… I suppose this inefficient use of space is a result of the previous configuration of the aircraft before refurbishment. As such, there is a smaller cabin aft of Door 2 that has 2 rows with a simple divider between Business and Economy class. Anyway, this seat is the same seat found on several other airlines such as Eva Air and Virgin Australia? And is very comfortable.

Lots of storage space


I was disappointed to find that the flight path was not available before takeoff on this flight, as on previous flights, I had managed to turn it on. However, I would find out later that the flight path was not working even after take-off. It was quickly fixed after I let a FA know of the problem.

After being served hot towels, and taking a 7up, we left the gate pretty much on time. Pushed back, spooled up, and made our way to Runway 02C, taking off to the South West.

Leaving the gate and engine spool up
Confirmation that I’m still in Singapore…
Taxiing past Barry


Entering runway 20C, we spooled up immediately and I enjoyed the familiar RR Trent 884 take off. It was a steep climb and we started to u-turn to the left shortly after takeoff to head North towards Hong Kong.

Spot the Marina Bay Sands!
Changi airport under the clouds


At this point, the flight path was not working. However, the rest of krisworld was functioning, and looking at the krisworld catalogue for this month, I found nothing interesting.

Decided to rock and roll with Adele. She took a while to roll though. I had to wait several minutes before the song start playing…
Cabin view
My sister immediately enjoying the very comfortable regional business class
Took a quick trip to the toilet


It’s interesting to note the wooden panels that SQ has put on its refurbished aircraft to give it an upmarket feel. Hmmm. Not too sure about them.

“Amenity kits” were given out
Which contained only these
Water bottles were given out as well
Cute cubby hole meant just for them!
A friendly FA came around to take drink orders and I ordered a Cappuccino. I then took out my laptop and started typing this trip report.


I had turned to check if the flight path was working, but it was not. At the same time, it annoyed me that I could not let Adele roll in the background once I switched to the flight path. It would inevitably turn off the entertainment and play the voice of someone reading some children’s book.

Turning on my computer and going back to Adele


Shortly after, the FAs came around to serve brunch, but I requested for mine to be served a little later as I was still full from breakfast and would have needed sustenance a little later to last through Hong Kong immigration and the long ride to the hotel. Lunch in Hong Kong would be 2pm at the earliest. Eventually, I kept my laptop and it was time for brunch. I also told the FA about the dysfunctional flight path. And after disappearing into the galley for 2 minutes, she came back and successfully turned it on!

Only two hours left?!
Menu
I’m glad I pre-ordered the lobster because I wouldn’t want to have any of these choices to be honest.


Ok, maybe the poached eggs… But Lobster!!!



Trays are used on regional flights. I think they’re not used on long haul flights if my memory serves me well… I decided to try the Riesling and ordered another cappuccino as well.

Fruit salad with sour oranges. I don’t eat papayas. I think they taste like vo.. nevermind.


An enthusiastic male FA came around serving bread. Too bad they didn’t have garlic bread as that’s my favourite. I took the last croissant instead which was the flakiest croissant I have ever eaten. It was yummy though.

Flaky croissant


After the fruits, an FA came around to clear the tray, and I declined the cereal and went straight to my main course.



The lobster tasted awesome! The asparagus accompanying it did not. It was soggy, but not completely inedible. So I ate the whole meal all up anyway. Yumz. The Riesling was really full of flavor and I ended up drinking 3 (small) glasses. Later on, an FA joked with me that my face was really red! Oops. That tends to happen…

I flipped open the menu again and noticed this


Imagine saying “Hello excuse me, could you get me an Awaiting the Golden Dawn? Thank you very much”. I couldn’t. So, I can’t tell you how this drink tastes like.

I also noticed this coffee page which seemed new
And I decided to try the Brazilian coffee
WHICH WAS SO GOOD. I ordered one for my mother but she didn't like it.   

I would have ordered another if not for the fact that it would be my 5th cup of coffee for the day. I didn’t think that would do any good for my body.

We continued to cruise on our way to Hong Kong and encountered light turbulence along the way. Wobble wobble. Wobble wobble. Nothing major. Eventually though, the 4 hours passed by in a flash and it was time to descent into Hong Kong.

Argh it’s raining in Hong Kong!!
All set for landing!


And soon we touched down in rainy, gloomy Hong Kong. Rats.

We taxied by several interesting aircraft along the way. Sorry for the rainy windows.

9V-SQM from the 7.30am flight from Singapore


And finally, we reached the gate, whereupon everyone in the cabin immediately started getting ready to disembark.


The door opened within a few minutes, and it was non stop “Thank you Mr xx” by various FAs (how do they ALL know??) before stepping onto the aerobridge.

It was a short walk to immigration today.

Yes, we would be taking the airport express into town today


We collected our luggage, bought train tickets and boarded the train. I fell asleep in the train from exhaustion. Truly, sitting on a plane can be such an exciting experience that it wears one out completely. Trains are so… sleep-inducing. Anyway, we took a cab from Central station to our hotel and checked in. And thus concludes the journey from Home in Singapore, to Hotel in Hong Kong!



All in all, it was quite standard fare Business Class service on SQ’s refurbished 777-200ER from Singapore to Hong Kong. Initially, I was addressed as ‘Sir’ but as the flight went on, the FAs seemed to start remembering my name and all started addressing me by ‘Mr XX’, which was nice and personal. The 10 year-old 777 was old by SQ’s standard, but it was clean, roomy, and still a joy to sit on. I always wondered how flights go by ‘in a blink of an eye’ when I read trip reports here on Airliners.net, but I have come to realize just how long it can take to write one report. Testimony to that? I am writing this conclusion on my return flight on board the A380. Which only means… I HAVE TO GET STARTED ON MY RETURN TRIP REPORT RIGHT ABOUT NOW!!!

Hi Pokfur,

Welcome aboard a-net and thanks for sharing the interesting report. The refurbished B772 looks nice, I would not mind spending more than a SIN-HKG hop in your refurbished J seat.

Seems you have an extensive history with SQ. Like you, I used to fly several flights with them when I tag along on my parents' business trips. Although back then I was only able to get on the B777 and B744s, which was their latest equipment that time. I wish I got the opportunity to got on more interesting equipments like the A310 and A340s, even for a short hop to CGK.

Regards,

Hey there, welcome to Anet and to the TR forum! Excellent first report, certainly better than my first one back in 2006 (without pics)!

My favorite pic is the one with the condensation on the window with the jetbridge undocked. There's just something about the condensation on the windows on an SQ bird after a long flight that just says "I'm home"   

I hope you get the A380 and the long haul J on the way back. That was one of the last few times I flew SQ J before I quit my job and had to start flying LCCs.

Cheers

Yes it is comfortable for sleeping despite being angled lie-flat! I've done that on an overnight flight from Beijing before, and it's more convenient to convert to a bed compared to the long-haul J class.

Nice report! SQ's regional Business Class looks great! Nice to know that they're operating the refurbished planes to Hong Kong.

Interesting to see that you used the First Class facilities at Changi. I'm guessing your parents have PPS Solitaire?  

I quite like the concept of having a coffee menu, and I'm guessing SQ is the only airline that offers this service? I'm particularly interested in trying the blue mountain java, but as per your recommendation I'd give the Brazilian a try too.

Anyways thanks for the report, and I'm looking forward to seeing your return segment up!

It was. I can still remember the taste in my mouth now! I've really only tried the Singapore Sling on SQ. Many Singaporeans say it's not authentic at all, but I personally like it.

About 70% I think. I did not check out the mini Business Class cabin at the back though.

This is what we call 'Roti Prata' in Singapore. It's essentially made from flour and fried over a flat grill, and is normally served with curry. It is an absolute favourite of mine, but also rather sinful because it is extremely oily!!

Hi Pokfur,

Great 1st report. Oh, how many of your pictures remind me of my past trips. I'd take SQ 777 to HKG over any A320. It almost looks like there is too much food for a 4 hour flight, but I guess you can always refuse something.

I agree it looks tacky.

Yes that's true but the long ride into Hong Kong always means they you arrive into the city a little hungry. So refusing the food might not be such a good idea after all!

Air Asia!! That was my first time seeing it too and I was pleasantly surprised.

They don't normally open it for breakfast service/morning boarding drinks, but it is available on request, as I found out on a super early flight once!
