I agree that it depends as much on the individual F/A as an overall culture. I have had some friendly, and some not so friendly F/As on every different airline I have flown. In fact, I have only flown two segments on SQ
, one from BKK
, and another from SIN
. On the two hour flight from BKK
, the F/A was really interactive and chatty. At the end of the flight, I asked her to take a picture with me, and she was more than happy to oblige. She actually asked if she was going to get a copy, but in the moment I forgot to ask if she wanted me to email it to her or whatever. Wish I had been thinking a little more clearly. Anyway, I have this picture up at my desk, and it is a daily reminder of that great flight. On my flight from SIN
, it was a bit different. This may have had something to do with being a late night flight as well. The service was still excellent of course, but she didn't chat with me at all, even though I tried to ask a couple of questions that would normally incite a conversation. No problem, she just had other work to do.
I don't think they are overhyped. I very much enjoyed my experiences in SIN
and onboard the SQ
Just my opinion.
