I have had the pleasure to fly the SQ
products up front more than once-and let me say, you almost want to ask to go 'round again! A grueling 14 hours becomes a mini vacation! The service on both is impeccable. SQ
f/a's stand sentinel at the rear of the cabin, and I will be damned if you simply as much as move a muscle, they are there. Beluga, Dom, cashmere pj's, down comforters and duvet's....breakfast to order...then you land in SFO
to connect to east coast (PHL
) and have to deal with US, AA
, or UA
....talk about being depressed?
In any case, the future of long haul F/C is at hand, and without a doubt the asian flag, and euro flagged carriers have it spot on over the us flags.
Strange, tho...they do a job this phenomenal-outstanding above all-and believe it or NOT still make a nice profit at it. I often wonder, with this litany of red ink and despair in the US industry surrounding our flag carriers....do any of the CEO's, Arpey, Steenland(sp??), Tilton...do they ever fly any of these foreign carriers?
I'd cry too if I were them, no better yet, quit and go work for the competition.
One has just got to wonder.....as the saying goes "show up, pay attention, learn from your mistakes and move forward!"
