This is a trip report which happen last year where i head for a summer student exchange in Paris after having some study of in Denpasar or more known as Bali. Sorry for no picture since i didn't planned this to be present as a trip report .
After some considering flying SQ is the best way to get to Paris , since my last visit to Paris is with MAS which for me is very painful flying the B747 for 11 hours in econ without any personal IFE, i decide for a better way flying to Paris.
The day had come after the long 2 month study in Bali it's time to head to Paris. After packing in the morning i head to the airport around 4.30 PM . Arrive at the airport and went to the check in desk where my SQ 5550 turns out to be a GA flight. No problem for me since i always want to try the new B737-800 of Garuda's. After a quick check in i head to immigration welcomed with a long queue. After passing immigration i head to by some souvenirs for my friends in Paris.
The ETD of SQ5550 is 19.35 with ETA at Singapore 21.45 and leaving around two hour gap form my Paris flight ETA 23.55.
Codeshare with Garuda Indonesia.

The flight in economy was very full with many Singapore guys at the back and some Malay big family at the front row. The new Garuda economy seat was quite comfortable with 34 degrees reclining and touchscreen PTV. My seat is around the front row a window seat sorry couldn't recall the seat number
. We took off on time. The flight was fine in terms of meal and got a walls ice cream for desert, FA kind and active as usual and watched a soccer match of Chelsea against MU which turns out disappointingly for a home defeat at stamford bridge. Arrive in Singapore 5 minutes early we disembark at terminal 1 , and head for a walk to terminal 3 . As turned out a lovely old French couple was with the GA flight heading for Paris seating at the middle row still confused what to do knowing that the were not yet in Paris still in Singapore .I offer the some helped and we walked together to terminal 3, had some chat and turned out that they live in Lyon . After arriving at the gate they then walk in to the gate thanked me while i still want to do some Changi exploring.
Not long i head to the gate after finding out that almost all shop is already closed.
Arriving at the gate i do some browsing with the free internet computer and not long boarding was called around 23.15.
A perfect layover in Changi.
The boarding process was quick and i am very excited to enter the new SQ B777-300ER with it's new seats. My seat was located around the front row near the business class. The flight was around 50 % full in economy .

We took off on time , not long supper is served it's a Singaporean noodle with fish ball which is ok .
After supper i try to get some sleep and happens to be able to sleep for around 3 to 4 hours. Woke up around over India and watch some movies . Sun rise rose around over the Red Sea i guess and we had breakfast which is the standard Airline breakfast omelet with mushroom and sausage. As we approach CDG it was very foggy that i couldn't see the any ground or surface just before seconds before touchdown. Arrive around 7 AM and taxied took 10 minute.
Disembark quickly and head for immigration.
Overall my flight to CDG with SQ was average and usual, sorry once again for no picture at the TR and the shortness of it. Hope you enjoyed the TR
