Introduction

This trip was undertaken in 2009. After returning from Beijing, see trip report : Shanghai Airlines FM 9108 PEK - SHA

It was time to return to Singapore. Since it was red-eye flight, didn't see much of the outside, was still dark on arrival in Singapore.

The Shanghai airport was deserted. With only few flights departing around midnight. 2 EK's to Dubai, Turkish to Istanbul and SQ to Singapore and few domestic flights.

Had arrived early to the airport and the check-in counter wasn't open.

I was lucky to travel at a time when it was quiet. Read about the growing congestion due to expanding air travel in China.

I was a bit confused initially. I was going to say I flew 9V-SYL last night and it is now an albino Star Alliance livery plane with the brown/ochre seat covers, but then I saw this is from 2009. Thanks for sharing. Those purple seat covers are a blast from the past!

Haven't travelled on SQ 777-300's in recent trips, must have upgraded the interiors to new colours.

It was painted in the Star Alliance livery in Aug 2012. I had photographed the aircraft in 2014.

Upgrade is a strong word. 2/5 773As have the 2006 Y seats installed on them (e.g. same as on the A330s and A380s) while 3/5 773As have the very old seats (as per your TR) but with a new, non-purple cover.
