That’s part III of this trip report, SIN
Suite Class, a class that I though I have to try one in my life!
After a nice sleep in Crowne Plaza Hotel, I headed to back to the SIN
Really nice design
Scale for weighting the luggage, free here!
Arrived the other end of the terminal, the First Class check-in area for SQ
Feel so good
Got my boarding pass and UK landing card, proceed to the special departure lane just opposite to the First check-in area, nice touch!
After the immigration, I arrived the entrance of SilverKris Lounge
Once the lounge agent scan my boarding pass, she lead to pass through the Business Class Lounge and First Class lounge, and we arrived The Private Room finally
Quiet at around 11:00am
With both Mac and PC
I can see the 9V
-SKK from The Private Room
When I sat down at the dining area, the attendant provide a menu and asked when I would like to drink
When I asked for an apple juicy, I can even choose for red and green apples.
I had the green one, freshly sqeezed!
While waiting for my food, I got something from the buffet corner
My Cream of Leek & Potato soup arrived, quite good
Follow with the famous U.S. Prime Beef Burger with Foie Gras, Rocket Leaf and Fried Quail Egg
The burger was really good, the seasoning of the beef patty was perfect, highly recommended!!
Poached Lobster Provencale
The portion and taste was fantasic
Lastly, follow be the ice-cream, perfect ending!
So if you fly SQ
First Class, I would definitely recommend you to prepare some time to dine in The Private Room, the food offering there can compare with the 5-star hotel standard
26 June 2011
) – London Heathrow (LHR
Airline: Singapore Airlines
Seat: 3K (Suite)
Arriving Gate: 3
My boarding pass
The gate area
Going home? Visit my Friends in Shanghai? London is my choice!
-SKK is ready to go, it was the newest SQ
’s A380 at the moment
Passed the security check
And it is already boarding at gate A5 for premium passengers
Head of 9V
Airbridge for Suite only
The crews were waiting already
I was escort to my seat 3K, look like a comfortable seat
View from my seat
Thanks for cleaning the Suite for me!
That’s the main reason for seat 3K, you’ve got 3 windows
Pre-flight drink -- water
Closet for the jacket
Crew rest for the flight crews
Safety Information Card
The Bose headset, I still prefer my in-ear headset
Light control and AVOD control
Electric output and some other plugs
Estimated flying time was 12 hours and 40 minutes
At the scheduled departure time, there were 4 passengers in Suite including me, in seats 1A, 1K, 3K, 4A, very good distribution. However, few minutes later, a couple came with 5 young kids age between 3-9 years old board, the nightmare started. They took the whole row 2 and seats 3A, 3D, 3F.
The door was closed and we started to push back
While taxiing, I saw 9V
And the first A330-300 for SQ
Some cargo flights
After the quiet takeoff, the AVOD was on, lots of choices for Cantonese CD
The crew was busy to set the 2D
, 2F to be the children playground with the double bed, and try to accommodate well for those kids
Then some Adult drinks was offered, I tried the Krug
Followed by the Canapé
And the table was set
Chilled malossol caviar with melba toast and condiments
Abalone with sweet pineapple, tofu with brandy cherry and scallop with bai ling mushroom
I like this Appetizer rather than the caviar to be honest, haha
I have book the cook meal, here is the Kyo-Kaiseki
I ask the FA
if there is spare Pan seared rolled wagyu beef with enoki mushroom in the main menu, if yes then please let me try one piece, but she gave me the whole dish, but the dish was quite disappointing.
Red Bean cake which did not in the menu
I was so full so skip the cheeses and fruits, I realized that my meal take 2 hours to finish while other passengers were already sleeping
distributed the bottled water and the LHR
fast track pass
I had changed my sleeping suits while the FAs was seting my bed
Folding bed from here
Where are we now?
Check-out the new feature of SQ
’s AVOD, the e-Library
Manage to sleep for some hours, but after two hours, I was wakened by those kids, who were enjoying the cartoon in their playground. I asked for a pair of ear plugs from the FA
, but found that was not that useful… Anyway just stay in the bed for another movie, and 2 hours before landing, the crew was in action to prepare for the light meal
Table was set in the dark cabin as some other passengers were still sleeping
Salad of romaine with poached egg, sautéed lardon, crouton, shaved parmesan cheese and creamy Caesar dressing
I have book the cook
Lobster Thermidor with buttered asparagus, slow-roasted vine-ripened tomato and saffron rice
Warm caramelized banana tart garnished with fresh raspberry
It would be nice if it come with some vanilla ice-cream
End with a cup of Moroccan Mint Tea
And we are about to arrive London
We docked at Gate 3, what a long walk to the immigration. The immigration took 45 minutes even with fast track and when I arrive the luggage claim, the bag was still not ready yet
Got my bag finally and head to Terminal 4
I stayed ay the YO! Hotel in LHR
Terminal 4 as I will have early flight the next morning
The corridor inside, most of the room have few steps, not so luggage friendly
My room, GBP65 for 10 hours, quite expensive!!
I will sure to go those Hotels in Bath road rather than staying here
Inside the room
Walking around in the terminal, discover that CI
is using Terminal 4, ah yes, they are in SkyTeam now!
Outside terminal 4
Wow, Air Arik! I hope I can see their A340-500!
