SIN-HKG On Board SQ's B77W J Class

Sat Jan 09, 2010 8:14 am

First stop before my next connecting flight.

SQ Silver Kris Lounge at the new T3




left turn to Business Class Lounge


Straight after the entrance was the business centre






Food and drink selection were great.


Taste wasn't too bad considering they are buffet style.




A walk around T3....
T3 does give a very warm feeling which is totally different to those from the cool atmosphere of HKIA and KLIA








AS in the old terminals, T3 had a lot of relaxing area for transit pax both big and small kids to kill time with




But since I had so much time to kill, I made my way to T1 and T2 for some sight seeing  Smile












]



Enroute to T2




A walk down memory lane.....lol






Changi's famous garden






But it was not that great for plane spotting from the terminal and I was too lazy to go to the observation area

Time really flies when you are having fun, it was almost time for me to board my connecting flight to HKG

Flight Number: SQ2
Registration: 9V-SWG
Aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER
Gate: A12
Flying time: 3hrs15min
Scheduled Dept Time: 17:50
Actual Dept Time: 18:00
Scheduled Arrival Time: 21:35
Actual Arrival Time: 21:30
Takeoff Runway: 02C



My neighbour


My very first time flying on a 777-300(ER)




Waiting area


I always think at this angle, the plane is smiling at us.




Economy cabin




Business class cabin






I'm 6'1" and this is the legroom....heaven














Mirror mirror on the seat, who has the best J class of them all....




Krisworld.


















Takeoff










After takeoff drink (Singapore Sling) + warmed nuts




Dinner time
Sauteed prawn with green papaya salad




Spicy Chicken with fragrant rice






One of the best cup of chamomile tea I've ever had, both in air and on the ground.


Again, no TR will be complete without any lav pics  Wink






















Almost there






In terms of crew service, this flight was no different to the SYD-SIN leg.

Seat comfort was definitely waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the Spacebed.

Also the dining ware and glasses used were more standardised.

Read both your trip reports, that were great and very detailed with a lot of nice pictures from all around the cabin. Thanks for posting.

Glad you could enjoy SQ's 77W at least on one of the legs. Isn't that a great aircraft ? Would prefer it over SQ's 380 any time.

Ahh, a fellow plane geek like myself (ha)!! I agree! Thanks for a beautiful trip report, and your photos are just sublime. Singapore is a wonder, and I can't wait to return! And I can't wait for my first flight on a 77W!
I love dem planes....

Thank God they started serving the nuts in a bowl. It looks so much better!

Thanks for the report, I did the 77W JCL to HKG as well some years ago so thanks for the memories. Sadly there hasn't been much of SQ (or JCL) logged in my travel plans afterwards.

Your trip report needed no report....the photos themselves were an excellent photographic narrative! It's true a photo can say so much more than words themselves!

Your first part of photos almost made me forget there was a trip on a plane coming up! Isn't this the same plane service to San Francisco?

Btw I thought only Roni wore funky shoes  Smile

This looks like the entrance to a series of narrow urinals  Wow!

One great J product, maybe the best out there!?  Smile
SQ hardware is def. classy!!

No offense, but the some parts of the seat are a bit worn out! Maybe too much pax in J class for SQ! All seats are used and occupied at all time.

Still waiting for my chance for SQ new Business class seats.
Guess it's soon. 120,000 miles with THAI, hope SQ is nice enough to give Royal Orchid Plus some seats on new J class!!

Thank you for the report,
NET
Let's just blame it on yields.

please help me understand how SQ can make a profit with their new J cabin.. they seat 4 abreast, other airlines can do 7 abreast with the angled flat seats.. therefore the price of J on SQ must be 75% higher than on the more traditional J cabins, yet the price is not 75% higher - how do they make up the difference?
