Now on to the flight back to Singapore, which would also be my last flight for a long long time till leisure travel resumes....Checked in at the AirAsia counters and got my boarding pass.
Be warned that if you are flying International from KCH, there are no shopping or eateries after immigration and security, with only drinks vending machines available. Probably makes sense as there are not more than 3 international departures each day. So we are stuck after immigration and security, awaiting the aircraft arrival. 01 March 2020
Kuching (KCH) - Singapore (SIN)
Flight Time: 1H02M
Aircraft arrived on schedule.
Waiting to board
Seated at 17A
Boarding in progress. Flight was about 70% full.
LCC legroom is the norm.
However, inflight magazines are available on this leg.
Boarding completed and we pushed back with safety demo performed.
Taxied to the runway.
For an on-time departure from the midway of Rwy07.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6yhJS0p0y0
Climbing away from the Sarawak shores.
Service commenced with distribution of pre-booked meals.
We had again booked a couple of meals on the flight back. First was the Napoletana Chicken with Egg fried rice. This was a simple dish of chicken in sweet sour tomato-based sauce with fried rice, hard to go wrong with.
The other meal was the Prawn and chicken wonton noodles, which I also added a burnt cheesecake. In local lingo, the wonton noodles tasted legit! Wonton were huge with juicy prawns, and noodles were still springy. Nearly similar, or maybe even better than some, on the ground! The cheesecake was a sinful sweet ending as well.
Before long, we were descending into Singapore.
Landing on Rwy02L ahead of schedule.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgkaBldy-7k
When SQ's A380s were still actively flying.
Doubt we will be able to fly on SQ's B772 ever again.
Spotted AK's 1st A320neo.
Parked at Terminal 4.
As can be seen on the arrival FIDS, the number of flights from T4 has already greatly reduced then, with only AirAsia group flight mainly still operating. Of course, with the ongoing travel restrictions in place, T4 has suspended operations now.
Another short and pleasant flight on AirAsia, with delicious inflight meals and efficient service.
Since this trip, I had already cancelled 3 other trips, and maybe more with the existing travel restrictions in place. I guess it will be months before most of the flights resume and we can get into the skies again. Till then, stay safe and stay healthy everyone!
