Trip To Down Under - SQ BLR-SIN-MEL

Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:46 pm

Hi All,

This is my very first attempt at a trip report. This was a journey I under took in May 2006 frm BLR to MEL via SIN on SQ. Unfortunately at that point I did not notice most of the tech./culinary details of the flights I was travelling on. So this would mostly be a collection of random pics taken during the flight. My next report wud surely contain more descriptions and juice!!  Smile

The trip details are standard SQ affair. The only sore point being on the return leg (SIN-BLR) they ran out of non-veg meals in Y class!! (Second time tht has happened to me on SQ, both the times on an Indian leg. Do they deliberately carry lesser number of non-veg meals to India?!)

After a almost month's stay in MEL i was ready to return back to India. Thanx to a new Singapore immi. rule that allows some Indian citizens a free on arrival visa to Singapore, I decided to stay over @ the island nation for a coupla days. It truly is an amazing place.

Totally agree with you.. SQ is simply the best. Infact at Changi I got a set of the Batik Sarongs (the SQ uniform) for my sis.

HI Bala,

Not bad for a first timer altough you could follow the air.net standard of providing flight details and meal pics---hey always a next time.

Thanks for sharing the gr8 pics anyways.

Great report JustBala!

Minor nitpick - its easier on the eyes if you present the label just before or after the picture. Currently there's a blank line between the picture and the comment, with no gap between the comment and the next picture, which causes confusion as to which picture the comment relates to.

Glad you enjoyed the trip on SQ - they're truly world class!
