Barely a week after my trip to Auckland, it was yet another short trip to the neighbouring city of Bangkok. Purpose of trip: Food, massages, and more food! With so many reports on the SIN
sectors around, it will mainly be a pictorial report. Outbound is on Jetstar while inbound was booked on Thai AirAsia (Jetstar's evening return flight is too late for my liking even though prices are slightly cheaper).
Checked in about 2hrs before departure for the evening flight and proceeded to The Green Market in Terminal 2 for a free set meal compliments of my credit card. Priority Pass holders will get the same set meal too! Lets take a look at the set meal offering:
Japanese appetisers buffet
Grilled cod fish
Steamed egg. There was also a bowl of garlic rice and a lime juice drink.
After dinner, we proceeded to the gate. Flight had just started boarding. It seems that quite a number of passengers were connecting from the Jetstar MEL

Singapore (SIN) - Bangkok (BKK)
Yep, Jetstar do issue proper boarding passes.
My 3rd flight on 9V
-JSC, having just flown on her a month earlier from KL
Couple of SQ
This plane has the Valuair titles too!
Crew preparing the plane for departure. Flight time was 2hrs. Load was about 60-70%, not too full.
Myth: All seats on 3K's A320 are 29" pitch.
Truth: Only the seats in front have 29" pitch. Those in the rear have horrible seat pitch!
I was seated in row 29 (2nd last row) and the legroom is so much less than when I was seated in row 10 on this exact same aircraft!
Row 29 legroom
Row 10 legroom (from previous flight)
Note to myself: Try not to get seats towards the rear of the plane if possible on the next 3K A320 flight.
We pushed back on-time.
Some plane spotting during the short taxi to the active runway 20C. We were number 6 for takeoff. Busy evening at Changi!
Good to see you again! Jetstar's A332 VH
-EBE preparing for her flight to Auckland. Flew her just a week before this trip back from AKL
Jet Airways A332.
Another A330, this time a Qantas A333.
After holding for more about 10min, we finally took off from Rwy20C.
Making a turn back towards the airport.
Dusk over Singapore. You can spot T3
at the bottom right corner.
The sky is on fire!
Stuff in seat pocket.
Shortly after seat belt signs were switched off, crew came down with immigration forms followed by onboard food and beverage sales. Sales on this flight were not bad, and a number of passengers even ordered hot meals! Great commission for the cabin crew I guess. However as I had my meal earlier on, I did not order anything on this short flight.
Crew conducting BOB service.
Final few minutes of sunlight.
All too soon, we started our descent into Bangkok. Somewhere over Pattaya, I think.
Final approach to Rwy19R.
We landed 10min ahead of schedule. Not bad!
Another smooth flight on Jetstar, just don't sit near the rear of the plane in the future.
