Introduction

This trip report covers flight from Singapore to Mumbai. After arriving from Sydney in Terminal 3, had a transit time of 2 hrs. See Trip report : Sydney - Singapore on Singapore Airlines

Flight time was changed from the usual 7 a.m departure from Singapore due to main runway repair at Mumbai airport.

Transit

Took Skytrain to Terminal 2. Did some shopping and then found a place to sort my things. It was soon time to the flight departing from Gate F54.

Dinner packaging

Having ordered special meal during booking, got served first. Many passengers skipped the meal as they had already slept by the time meal service started.

Dinner: Hindu Non-Vegetarian Meal [HNML]

Fish curry, veggies and rice with dessert. Food was good.

Image

Dark cabin

After the meal, lights were dimmed for resting. Like many others, I had two seats to stretch. Slept for the rest of the flight and woke closer to Mumbai. I didn't photo the inflight magazine as it was same as the Sydney - Singapore flight. I don't remember if menu was provided as I was served pre-ordered meal.

Immigration

Immigration was quick with very few passengers as this flight arrives after the mid-night to early morning rush. Baggage took sometime to arrive as the Terminal was inaugurated a month earlier.

Completely OT but your watermark ... there was a very famous incident with a guy named Koresh in the USA many years ago. Reminded me of that!

Nice report though! Brutal flight time. Your meal does look good though. Never flown SQ myself. One day!

Rescheduling of flight to early departure was due to runway work at Mumbai airport, Read that SQ didn't land on runway 14-32 due to old control tower obstruction .

Thanks for your comment.
