Bangkok Weekend Feast on SQ Economy Class

Sat Nov 30, 2019 5:50 am

It was another short trip made to neighbouring Bangkok over a recent weekend. Unsurprisingly, with all the great food in Thailand, this report would have lots of food porn as well as the flight review of SQ Economy Class.

Self check-in performed at Terminal 2 and paper boarding pass printed.

Image


First stop after checking in was TGM Café where, compliments of Priority Pass, I had a tasty Beef Shogayaki bento set.

Image

Image


Terminal 2 is definitely much quieter after the move of Scoot to Terminal 1.

Image


Some plane spotting.

15 November 2019
Singapore Airlines
SQ 982
Singapore (SIN) - Bangkok (BKK)
B787-10
9V-SCN
Economy Class
Flight Time: 1H59M


Headed to the gate F59 at the far end of the terminal.

Image


SQ's youngest B787-10, 2-month old 9V-SCN, would be operating the short sector this evening.

Image

Image


Boarding commenced and down the gangway we go. Economy earphones were available at the door but there were no newspapers on offer.

Image

Image


Stepped into the empty Economy cabin as we were among the first to board.

Image


SQ's B787-10 features the latest Economy seats. No pillows offered but limited number of blankets were available in the overhead compartments. Being in a 3-3-3 configuration on the Dreamliner, the seat width and aisles were definitely tighter than the rest of the fleet. The IFE monitor was touch-screen sensitive and of good quality. Call buttons, USB port and cup holder etc were all on the seatback.

Image

Image


Passengers trickling in. Even the flight ended up totally full, there was no hurry to board.

Image

Image

Image


View out the window.

Image


Excellent entertainment selection on Krisworld.

Image


Legroom was decent, though not overly generous. This regional aircraft was not fitted with footrests.

Image


Reading material

Image


Waiting for the last few passengers. Hot towels were also distributed. Not sure if it was me, but the SQ signature scent seemed to be missing from the hot towels.

Image


Flight info.

Image


Doors closed and safety video played.

Image


New Zealand Air Force B757-200 spotted parked at the remote.

Image


Started my IFE choice after takeoff.

Image


Meal service commenced. There were 4 crew working in each of the forward and aft economy cabins, and hence service was actually quite efficient.

Image

Image


The choices for the meal were Green curry chicken with yellow rice, or Roast pork char siew with steamed rice. I chose the Green curry chicken, which was accompanied with a quinoa salad, warm roll with butter and a pudding dessert. As usual, it was companied with metal cutlery. I had an apple juice and coffee to go with my meal.

Image

Image


The quinoa salad was very healthy, though it could make do with a bit more seasoning.

Image

Image


Green curry was good, though not authentically 'thai' enough.

Image

Image


The pudding dessert was decent, though I still could not make out the flavour of the pudding.

Image


Crew clearing the trays after meal service.

Image


Visit to the lav, which was clean and stocked with the usual SQ economy amenities.

Image

Image

Image


Cabin view. Note the very narrow aisles, which 'ensures' that the crew bumps into aisle passengers during service.

Image


Continuing with the IFE.

Image


We were already approaching Bangkok after my movie ended.

Image

Image


Landed and disembarked.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


It was a very pleasant flight on SQ on this 2hr sector. Despite the full flight, service was efficient and friendly, and catering was very good. However, the tightness of the B787 economy seats is apparent compared to other SQ fleet, but for this short sector, it was still bearable.

View of the aircraft during disembarkation. For reasons unknown, BKK airbridges are not certified to connect to Door 2 of the B787-10, hence only Door 1 is used for boarding/disembarking on all SQ B787-10 flights in BKK.

Image


Stayed at Lancaster Hotel for this trip. Similar to my last stay, the room was modern, huge and comfortable, with a wonderful bed and amazing bathroom.

Image

Image

Image


Welcome fruits and thai treats.

Image


A simple supper at Took Lae Dee.

Image


Next day, we had brunch at Or Tor Kor Market.

Image

Image

Image


Followed by some shopping at Chatuchak.

Image

Image


Yummy dinner at Saengchai Pochana.

Image


Amazing lunch at Kup Kao Kup Pla.

Image

Image

Image


Famous pandan pastry at Siam Square.

Image

Image


Yummy desserts at White Flower Factory.

Image


Checking out Rodfai Market

Image

Image

Image


Light dinner at Zabb One.

Image

Image


Ending the short trip with lunch at Inter Restaurant.

Back to BKK for the flight home. SQ check-in desks are at Row K. Barely a queue for check-in 2 hrs before departure.

Image

Image

Image


Took me about half hour just to clear security and immigration. Not too efficient..... Proceeded to the Miracle Lounge to check it out.

Image


It was a fairly comfortable lounge with decent selection at the buffet.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Our light dinner before flight.

Image


It was only a short walk to the departure gate D7, where SQ's oldest A330-300 9V-STC was waiting to load the SIN bound passengers.

Image

Image



18 November 2019
Singapore Airlines
SQ 979
Bangkok (BKK) - Singapore (SIN)
A330-300
9V-STC
Economy Class
Flight Time: 2H03M



Boarding commenced. Unlike the flight from SIN, a selection of newspapers are also available at the door along with the earphones.

Image

Image

Image


Headed to my seat at the rear economy cabin.

Image


Boarding in progress. It would end up a totally full flight again.

Image


Legroom was decent. IFE was not the latest version, but still more than decent with tons of selection. Earphones were collected during boarding.

Image

Image


View out the window.

Image

Image


Boarding completed quite efficiently and hot towels (though lacking the signature scent) were distributed.

Image


Flight map is not 3D, but I actually preferred this version. Less complicated and easy to understand.

Image


Leading crew coming around to confirm the special meal orders.

Image


CX arrived and parked beside. The carrier is currently struggling with the unstable situation in Hong Kong.

Image


Safety video played

Image


IFE shall be a Taiwanese comedy.

Image


Pushed back and started the taxi to the runway.

Image

Image


Departure from Rwy19L into the dusk.

Image

Image

Image

Image


Enjoying my movie.

Image


Dinner service commenced. Despite the full flight, service was quick and efficient, along with the usual SQ warmth.

Image

Image


Choices for mains were Braised beef with potatoes or Basil chicken with rice. It came with a side salad, roll and butter, cup of water and a thai dessert. I chose the beef, along with a ginger ale.

Image

Image

Image


Salad was quite different from the usual, with a spicy tangy taste.

Image


The beef was tender and flavourful.

Image

Image


My friend had the Basil chicken with rice. It was the exact same dish as what I had a couple of times before on TG on the same BKK-SIN sector. Well, the catering on this flight was by TG too, so no surprise. The dish was tasty but pretty spicy, just as how I remembered on TG.

Image

Image


As the dish was very spicy, it soon became my share while my friend ordered an instant noodle instead. Delivered with smiles by the leading crew.

Image


The thai dessert was awesome!

Image


Meal trays were cleared, and we still had about 40min to go.

Image


Lavatory remained clean and well-stocked.

Image

Image


Approaching SIN

Image


Flew past Changi Airport. The night view was beautiful!

Image

Image

Image


Landing on Rwy02L.

Image


Parked at Terminal 3.

Image


View of my seat and disembarkation.

Image

Image

Image


Again, it was an enjoyable flight on SQ on this short sector. Service and catering were very good. Despite the age of this aircraft, cabin was still well-maintained, apart from the yellowish cabin lights. Despite the many LCC competition and possibly to match the service level of main competitor TG on the route, SQ continues to provide a high level of service on their short-haul flights.
