Singapore Airlines is the Best!

Jump to last reply

Check-in for the Singapore Airlines flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles began at 4:15 p.m. At 4:10 p.m., I walked over to the check-in counter and in just a few minutes the check-in crew walked out to the waiting passengers, gave a bow and returned to their check-in desks. They insisted on checking my suitcase because it was two kilos over the limit, which I didn’t have a problem with.. I watched the three pilots walk on the plane. They looked so young. Guess I’m getting older.

Singapore Airlines used a 777-300 ER plane, a change from the scheduled Airbus A380, but still a great plane. My seat in economy had a personal television monitor, twice the size of the monitors seen on most planes. There was an electrical outlet at my seat and also a USB power supply and a video input.

Hot towels were provided before take-off. A complete menu booklet with socks, earphones and a tooth brush and paste were passed out along with a blanket and pillow.

From the beverage cart, I started with a Singapore Sling and some peanuts. From the dinner menu, I selected the salmon and several glasses of wine. The meal was complete with a salad, cheese, a cracker, dessert and coffee.

A snack was offered during the flight that included a choice of a sandwich, banana or candy bar. A before landing hot meal consisted of an omelet, preceded with hot towels. The flight attendants began serving the last meal two rows in front of me and worked their way to the front of the cabin. Two flight attendants took the time to reassure me that they had not forgotten me in the meal service. I have flown enough long flights to know what was going on, but appreciated their interest.

I received miles with Continental airlines for the flight. The flight only took eight hours and thirty minutes due to a nice tail-wind. At one point the plane was traveling at 702 miles per hour.

What a professional, and well groomed airline crew. I can see why Singapore Airlines is one of the highest rated airlines. While I would have received 25% more miles if I would have flown with Continental Airlines, (Silver Elite status) was afraid the fasten seatbelt sign would have been on for the entire flight to Japan. Paying for alcohol on an International flight is also against my religion. On the flight over to Japan, the fasten seatbelt sign was turned off four minutes after take-off. On the return flight from Japan, it was on for the first 20 minutes due to a few but not major bumps in the air.

Yes, Singapore Airlines is definitely a Five Star airline.
