SIN-MNL Flight

Thu Sep 20, 2001 11:29 am

August 1, 2001
Singapore Changi Airport
Gate F36
Aircraft:A310-300
Singapore Airlines flight SQ 74
Scheduled departure time: 1330 hours
Flying time: 3 hours 10 minutes
9V-ST_
I came to the airport two hours early to find few people at the check-in counters. Upon finishing we went striaght to immigration. After we went shopping and I viewed many aircraft. One SIA 747-400 to London Heathrow another A310-300 to Jakarta and a Philippine Airlines also to Manila departing earlier at 1250 hours
At boarding time we went to the aircraft and got seats in in middle section at row 43. The plane was very clean. There was some delay, but few minutes after Our plane took off. Even though there wasn't any PTV on this aircraft, I was happy to get extra mileage on this flight in Krisflyer. After cruising altitude was met, the stewardess served lunch. I took some salmon with rice. There was even ice cream for dessert. I read newspapers to spend my time and slept for a while. At 1650 we commenced our descent into Manila and landed at twilight time. We landed to be happy and got our baggage fast. This plane would go back to Singapore at 1800 hours as SQ 75 and arrive in Singapore at 2120 hours  Big thumbs up

P.S They use A340-300 on Fridays as SQ 74 and 75

Well they are still okay. I think you get extra mileage because not many people want to ride them. They are gonna be retired soon anyway  Big thumbs up
