SIN-AKL On NZ

Sat May 27, 2006 8:38 pm

The return....

Ok so hope you all enjoyed my first TR (AKL-SIN), this is the return flight back to AKL

NZ82 26/05/06. 772ER ZK-OKA Runway: 02C

Well after my trip up on the flight deck, for the return I felt more like relaxing, having something to drink, enjoying some movies, and since it was a night flight...getting some sleep.
Did some shopping whilst in Singapore... 1st TR up to SIN, pics were taken with a Canon Ixus 400. Picked up the latest and greatest in Singapore...pics are now taken with a Casio Exilim Z-1000 (10 megapixels).  Smile

Caught the taxi to SIN (Changi Airport), used the early checkin and got myself a window seat plus 2 spare seats (Singapore flights aren't full currently in Y). Spent a bit of time looking around the airport... sure is a lot of shopping to be done there if you have the $$
Bought some Peanut Butter M&M's which aren't available in New Zealand. Yum Yum  yummy 

Took a few pics.... SQ a/c lined up...

Dawn then followed with some more pictures
Breakfast was the choice of an omelette or french toast with peaches... I chose the French Toast... honey maple syrup with that too... quite tasty!

We then flew over Auckland city but there was too much cloud to see much... I got the impression that we flew the ILS/DME arc for runway 23L... gusty winds on landing...got a bit of side-to-side movement going on there... heres the video... sorry its a bit shakey...  Smile



After landing we taxied over to Gate 3 and thus ending a nice week long holiday.

Thanks for that - really enjoyed both reports!

The video was good - sounded like the F/A forgot to check the seatbelts were all fastened! I do like the "Welcome to our place" - I can't wait until we move there!  bouncy
