Due to popular demand, here is a speculative trip report on Singapore_Air’s recent trip to Vietnam on Singapore Airlines. As has been stated in other areas of the forum, absolutely no offence is met – we’re just taking advantage of Singapore_Air’s excellent sense of humour.
The week prior to December 14th proved to be an extraordinarily busy one as I scooted around London completing all the final details before flying to Vietnam on the world’s finest airline – Singapore Airlines Limited.
This resulted in me having to visit Madame Tussauds Wax Works to reclaim the Singapore Girl as my personal gift to Singapore Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Cheong Choong Kong who is, as of February 2003, no longer the CEO of this great organisation. At Madame Tussauds, the staff were surprisingly unhelpful which left me deeply depressed that this poor Singapore Girl had had to endure such mistreatment for such a prolonged period of her life. Of further and greater concern was the fact that they were unaware of my status within Singapore Airlines and I was, to say the least, utterly appalled at the mistreatment accorded to me as the Chief Chairman of SIA.
Nevertheless, the Singapore Girl manikin was retrieved successfully and I returned home with her sitting on my lap, admiring that wonderful Sarong Kebaya in all its glory and decided that I should, in order to further my familiarisation of their operation, would have to make sure I was full bottle on dressing and undressing in times of need. Upon returning home, my mother was instructed to start cooking for the passengers travelling on SQ 317. This required my other to bake Beluga Caviar for First Class and my father to distil his ethanol to create Dom Perignon Champagne for my complimentary banquet to be held at the boarding gate. As my mother and father slaved, I took it upon myself to call every Singapore Airlines employee personally to remind them of my presence on the following day’s flight to Singapore. Given my authority within this great organisation, this caused quite a fuss which resulted in many staff inadvertently “hanging up” in the panic as they remembered of the “Khoa Huynh Contingency Plan”. Of course this is to be expected when such an important character such as myself is travelling and I had every confidence that the trip would go without a hitch.
On the night of the 13th, things were in full swing as the Beluga Caviar was competed. My mother and I came to the conclusion that, considering the status of Singapore Airlines’ First Class passengers, we should create the exclusive “Singapore Airlines Beluga Caviar Range” with a personalised white appearance – the result utterly magnificent. My father too continued to slave copiously over his exclusive Dom Perignon, also coming up with a special lemonade flavour exclusively for SIA’s passengers. At around 11pm, a Chief Stewardess called by to finalise my packing arrangements and ensure my presentation for the following day would be up to scratch and I went to sleep at midnight confident that every effort had been made to ensure that my tour of Singapore Airlines would run as smoothly as possible.
At 7am on the morning of travel, the cabin crew bus arrived and took my luggage for the flight whilst I travelled in the Rolls Royce Silver Seraph leased by Koh Boon Hwee for the day from Her Majesty for my transfers in London. As I neared the airport, it was heartening to see every London-based SIA employee lining the motorway on the way to Heathrow as a sign of respect for my great position within Singapore Airlines. At the check-in area it was of course my duty to run the show and I personally made sure that every passenger was personally checked in by myself in order to ensure the finest quality standards. Whilst checking in each passenger, they were of course briefed on the flight, the history of Singapore Airlines and tips for a great travel experience, lasting approximately 20 minutes. Everyone was incredibly interested in my engaging tutorial and were most thankful for the valuable information I had so kindly provided for them. It was an enjoyable experience checking in everyone and as I left the check in counter, an announcement was made over the PA system that Dr. Khoa would be walking through the terminal and to line the walkway as a sign of respect and admiration. The walk was long and I decided that I would have the Rolls Royce brought into the terminal in order to transport Singapore Airlines’ superior passengers to the lavish banquet at the boarding gate.
Naturally, the tension rose as I arrived at the gate and the passengers laughed as I sang the “SIA Song” which was a rendition which left not a dry eye in the house. The mood was set for a great flight and I took the liberty to provide information on the mechanics of the famous Singapore Girl service before boarding the ‘WOPPY’ and testing every single seat in the aircraft of its operation. Further, I took it upon myself to complete the pre-flight checks of all flight controls and briefed the pilots on the flight ahead and what their required actions during the course of the flight. Obviously, they were impressed by my desire and willingness to assist them even with my hectic schedule and concluded by saying that should they have any problems on questions on how to fly the ‘WOPPY’ they would be extremely grateful if I would be able to answer them.
As the passengers filed aboard I practiced the in-flight announcements and tried my hardest to get the famous SIA intonation just right and cleared my nose especially so that it would sound as nasal as possible. I then scooted into the First Class lavatory and put on my purple Female In-flight Supervisor Kebaya and waxed my upper lip. How good it felt to be in such a figure-hugging outfit – a symbol of grace based upon the ethos of customer service. Kudos to myself I must say. I also decided that it would be appropriate for me to do the safety demonstration as it is not often SIA passengers get to see such a celebrity carrying out such a wonderful action. Needless to say, it went off without a hitch and our ‘WOPPY’ took off into British airspace 45-minutes late bound for the sublimely perfect island nation of Singapore, the home to the world’s finest airline – Singapore Airlines Limited.
In the cabin, I visited every passenger and instructed the crew on the ideals of excellent customer service and made a special presentation on Krisworld about SIA”s financial status over the last twenty five years – a thoroughly fascinating presentation for the whole family to enjoy and many passengers were deeply moved as they cried – obviously stunned at the success of this great airline. Meal time was equally interesting but I decided that given my position of authority, it wouldn’t be good form to be serving the passengers myself. Instead, I took a break and tested the functions of the Skysuite and redecorated the forward lavatory with a Singapore Airlines mosaic as a most elegant touch.
As we neared the end of the flight I took my seat in the flight deck to make the landing. Unfortunately, the weather has been quite horrid in Singapore surprisingly given its standing in the world. Nevertheless, I made a beautiful touchdown on 02 on Singapore soil. It was reported that a chunk of the bitumen was dug up but that is entirely impossible because it was a Singapore Airlines aircraft and SIA aircraft are incapable of doing any wrong. Naturally it was the fault of the stupid Cathay Pacific pilots on B-HOY who landed behind us (Cathay always gets held whilst the superior SIA lands). Things were in full swing and I thanked the passengers for travelling Singapore Airlines and wished them a very good afternoon. The weather in Singapore really was strange because as soon as the passengers stepped of the aircraft they exploded into laughter – SIA will have to change these humid conditions because its most strange indeed. Prior to disembarking I viewed all lavatory video tapes of the Singapore girls before bidding them farewell and thanking them for working at Singapore Airlines.
If Flight SQ 317 was busy, my transit in Singapore was frenetic as I raced to a shareholder’s briefing as an opportunity to outline SIA’s financial performance, strategic planning and executive movements. I was furious at the fact that Cheong’s Mercedes S600L wasn’t there and forced myself to bow down to the lower-class standards of having to travel by bus with my beautiful model. Upon arrival Cheong apologised profusely and stated that they had expected Her Majesty to make the arrangements given my status which is quite understandable because SIA doesn’t and won’t ever make mistakes.
The briefing went well and the media were utterly dazzled by my quirky nature and excellent sense of humour and reinforced the fact that JUBBY and WOPPY are far more appropriate for SIA’s aircraft. It was with immense pleasure that I thanked Dr. Cheong for his outstanding achievements on SIA. Some were however a little disappointed that I forgot to touch on the recent investments SIA has made. In all the pomp and ceremony of the occasion it unfortunately escaped my mind. But never mind, there are plenty more investments to talk about. Cheong was elated at the Singapore Girl manikin and put her on his shoulders in a baby carrier which was most symbolic of SIA today. As a personal token of my parent’s appreciation, they presented him with a tub of specially-created Oinkywoinkywaxycheong for his daily face polishing. Again, he was elated and naturally announced me as taking over his position as CEO as well as the Chief Chairman over the coming years. But my commitments didn’t stop there and I bid Cheong and the team farewell before rushing to SIA engineering to investigate rumours of malfunctioning Spacebeds. The rumours were of course unfounded given that they are on Singapore Airlines and I issued a public statement brutalising Cathay Pacific for trying to sabotage out product with their pointless propaganda.
The time came for me to rush to board SQ 174 to Ho Chi Minh City and I decided that it would be appropriate to travel in the cargo hold to keep a close eye on the passengers’ Louis Vuitton luggage in sacred Singapore Airlines containers. I hope you’ve enjoyed my report and have a better insight into the wonderful Singapore Airlines. As a special Christmas treat I shall be providing each end every one of you with a complimentary 3000-page report and for a limited time with a signed autograph!

Yes. It truly is an honour to have a trip report written on your behalf. This is by far the best post I'ver read on airliners!
Oh for those of you who don't know, Singapore_Air sometimes refers to the Megatop as Megatoppy Woppy and that got shortened over time to Woppy. The Jubilee was known as Jubby Wubs (which sounds kinda cute) and that got shortened over time to Jubby.

I most certainly hope he isn't sleeping in Vietnam with his wax Singapore Girl -that means he has stolen it from Dr. Cheong!
I'm glad some of you have had a chuckle....I enjoyed writing it! It will be interesting to see Singapore_Air's reaction: I think he'll see that we're not maliciously ragging him but stating his undisputed loyalty to SIA and of course his unfaltering dedication!
You never know…the legitimate Singapore_Air report may read exactly as above…but lets hope this time that he is able to get the landing a little smoother to save those poor Changi workers the trouble of patching up the runway yet again and exhausting his parents in their frantic efforts to get the catering in place!!

OMG that is the funniest/campest thing I have ever read on a.net.
Is it really true that Singapore_Air is going for gender reassignment so that he become a 'Singapore Girl'. We all wish him the best of luck and we hope you past muster as, let's face it Singapore_Air - You are a great way to fly.

The Singapore Girl song goes something like...
You're always there, across the world
I see a smile, I see you care
You're a great way to fly!
The "MTV" comes complete with an SIA girl posing on top of a mountain when the camera pans away (wonder how many millions they spent on that?). Plus scenes of 2 SIA Girls' sillouettes running across the cable car tracks in San Francisco as well with a saxaphonist slowly blaring away by the sea.

I will be the FIRST Airliner.NET member to say that I do NOT look forward to reading his trip report. He probably spent more time writing down the details of the flight than actually enjoying it.
I love to fly.
I love my job.
I love to go places.
But ya know, I love those things a LOT more than typing it all up here, telling you where we turned or what altitude I was at. I mean, come on.. what kinda conversations am i gonna have..
"whoa, you mean you've flown at 35,000 feet too!!! no way!"
then we'll see
"but WE flew at 35,001 feet! ha!"
Don't get me wrong, some of these trip reports are useful, but to a point, aren't some of you being overly braggadocious or even obsessive?
Trip reports are normally that, a report on what happened, how the service was, condition of the plane, attitude of the employees, etc...
I think it's great you flew over this intersection and intersected this localizer at this altitude going 156 kts at 3500 feet in broken clouds with a dew point of 52 and temperature of 65 (ok you pilots, what was the barometic pressure from that data?) with the winds 330 at 5 with gusts to 11....

I think some of you have missed the point here: this post wasn’t and isn’t designed to be insulting or degrading to Singapore_Air in any way…..may I ask how you think it is? Or is having a laugh at someone else’s expense not allowed any more? Do people have an inability to laugh at themselves? I think that those of you who know Singapore_Air reasonably well will realise that he has an excellent sense of humour and won’t take it personally. After all, this just plays upon Singapore_Air’s unfaltering loyalty to SIA….or is that meant to be a secret????
Segment King and airlinelover: Your attitudes are interesting….irrational I might add in that you are making a point not to read his report before it has even been posted! May I ask why you visit this forum when you don’t want to read the reports which most of us find pretty interesting and often invaluable when choosing to fly somewhere?
To all of you….Merry Christmas for yesterday. I hope Santa brought you something good!

first off, I guess this is just the frequent flyer in me, but i really dont' care what altitude you were at, what airway you flew, or what the tail wind co-efficient was.
When i read trip reports, i look for things like: how was the passenger treated? were they comfortable? were the flights on time? what was the inflight service like? any wierd passengers on board? etc...
A well thought out trip report is exactly that, a report, not a route map of where you were, flew over this Home Depot, waved @ so-and-so's house, etc....

With regards to Nate's comments about how he likes his TR's...when I write them I try to include as much detail about all aspects of the flight, including route and service. This hopefully enables the reader to get a complete picture of what was going on...so you dont like the parts describing the route? skip over them...
Anyway, back to the original post...ROFLMAO ROFLMAO ROFLMAO!!!! When does he get back, Im dying to hear his reaction!!!

I have to agree with Nate about how I like trip reports....
A good trip report helps others to be prepared for their flight with information such as seat pitch, staff demeanor, check-in wait time, service, cleanliness, and relative on-time performance. I don't see how having take-off time down to the tenth of a second or the list of all 90 airplanes by tail number you saw at JFK that day is relevant to anything.
I don't even bother with trip reports anymore as the bulk of my flights are on the same aircraft and airline. I'll only write one if something very out of the ordinary occurs or I fly a new airline/class of service. I don't think that it's very helpful for me to write a trip report for every single JAX-ATL flight or JAX-FLL or JAX-STL flight I take (my usual three trip rotations) just to say that "we were on time, seats same as last time, and we got a drink and pretzels from so-so staff."

yes, to each his own. I just don't get excited when I find out another airliner.net user has flown on the same airway, at the EXACT same altitude as I have.. I try to enjoy my flight, not spend the entire time taking down notes.
I am just picky about the airlines I fly and like, and enjoy reading people's posts on their EXPERIENCES... I honestly don't care if someone's plane rotated at V2 instead of at VR speed, for example *heh*
I'd normally stick to the FlyerTalk trip reports, but ya know, those are done by people with high expectations who fly a lot. ON Airliners.net, you get more people who have barely flown and see things differently, which is why i read the trip reports.....

The full evaluation-cum-trip report of my Singapore Airlines and Vietnam Airlines flights will be available by mid February at the latest. My expectations for my four flights with Singapore Airlines 'Limited' were extremely high - sky high Did Singapore Airlines Limited, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines Group meet these expectations?.....

Also, the Customer Services Agent for Singapore Airlines does not smile. He must be taught some lessons. Where do you live in SGN? I stayed in Quan 10 - not Quan 1 where the normal tourists go.

Singapore_Air need not have our condolences, Docpepz. After all, it was Singapore_Air who appointed Mr. Chew as the next CEO and presumably Deputy Chairman. Due to the importance of the moment, however, Singapore_Air decided that the company should keep it all very hush hush to make the occasion a grand and momentous one instead of having correct rumours floating all over the place which would never do in a sublime state like Singapore for the world’s finest airline. Fear not because naturally, Singapore_Air will also be briefing us all on why the selection was made and what SIA’s corporate objectives and strategy will be in the coming years.
By the way Dr. Khoa, I am still awaiting my formal report, like the rest of us, from your grand tour. Perhaps you should get onto your personal assistant, Koh Boon Hwee and ask him to hurry up with the typing? Or will we have to wait until it goes to the publishers?

And to think that the choice of the new CEO was announced just days after Singapore_Air returned to London! And he did not contact us Singapore members even though many of us had given him our contact numbers.
Naturally there was no way he could contact us during his transit in SIN on the way to Vietnam since he was busy meeting SIA's top management and testing out the new spacebeds, where he learnt that, true to popular belief, Cathay Pacific (invoking licence 2888 to say the C word) had planted moles in SIA to sabotage their product.
In addition to that, he also learnt that all the airlines of the oneworld alliance - yes - every single board of every single one world airline, has daily meetings on how to sabotage sacred SIA products. In fact, the whole corporate culture and psyche of Cathay Pacific (invoking licence 2888 to say the C word) is built around destroying mighty Singapore Airlines.
As to why he did not contact us on his transit in SIN on the way back to LHR, his official excuse was that he left our contact numbers on 9V-SMM.
Being Chief Chairman, we all know that all Dr Khoa had to do was summon 9V-SMM back (wherever it was, be it over the Pacific, Atlantic or the Indian subcontinent) to retrieve what he left behind. He apparently did not exercise that sacred right, the right to have any and every Singapore Airlines aircraft at your disposal wherever they may be, as Chief Chairman of the world's finest airline. That can be found at clause 18123 under section 24 of the SIA charter.
As such, we all know the REAL reason was that he was busy behind the scenes seeing that the succesion from Cheong to Chew was done in an appropriate manner and he didn't want any of us contacting him lest anything slipped.
Indeed, we are all honoured by the professionalism exhibited by Dr Khoa. It must have been hard on him to keep such exciting news from all of us and he must have had many sleepless nights over this. Only time will tell, dear sir, of your choice of Deputy Chairman and CEO.
Of course, if anything does go wrong, it will be due to the Cathay Pacific (invoking licence 2888 to say the C word) agents intentionally brutalising Singapore Airlines' aircraft, product, corporate culture and might!

Ahhh I have a chaufeur who would be willing to drive you anywhere you want with the service standard of MAS trained by a big fan of MAS ! SIA IMHO is nowhere near there
Well I was serious about the lounge access !!!! but since you were flying SQ, i couldnt get you upgraded to business class hahhahah!

Coal - Singapore Airlines is not a founding member of Star Alliance. Far from it! =)
Tested were the Singapore Airlines’ sanitary napkin and the Kotex brand sanitary napkin provided by Vietnam Airlines.
The Singapore Airlines’ sanitary napkin absorbed 0.25 pints / 118.25ml of water. The Kotex brand Vietnam Airlines sanitary napkin absorbed 0.3125 pints / 147.81ml of water. Hence, the Singapore Airlines sanitary napkin has failed against its competitor. It should also be noted the inflexibility and lack of wings on the former napkin compared to the latter.

I must say the general vibe of the forum back then was quite different. Singapore_Air and most of us were teenagers then. I still remember how Singapore_Air used to post every single pointless SIA related article
It was also quite a different era back then - Etihad wasn't around, EK was much smaller than SQ and Qatar Airways was almost unheard of. The big rivalry back then was SQ vs CX.

Singapore_Air was quite a trendsetter himself, I don't think we've seen reports of the results from lavatory visits quite as detailed ever since, although I think that might be a good thing.
