Hey...I was on the exact same flight as you on the A380! I was at Seat 75K....if you remember, I had a problem because someone was seating on my window seat and I had to persuade the person to return to his original seat. It sure was an outstanding flight with great service by LSS Chua, <acronym tit...Jump to post

Rick Clements was at the gate. Didn't ask him who he talked to.
20,000 apples were given to all passengers in Changi Airport for this event for the day.
Hey Thaigger...you didn't look for me!
Regarding the lady, think she might be the cabin manager. SQ has a small group of male and female cabin managers on routine flights.

SQ handle their inaugural flight entirely on their own. But they need to submit the list of activities that they will be doing for our approval.

Gentlemen, I think Thai is just re-routing some routes so that they may *yikes* miss BKK altogether. Lets look at it this way using the following 2 flights.

Doesn't seem like a flat seat anymore as it looks very tight. Waiting to see in on the plane itself.
According to experience, most of the paxs from SQ1 and SQ29 are transit paxs onward to Bombay and Chennai.
