At the end of January, my business associate and I traveled on different domestic schedules in order to see both sides of the connecting New York experience.We both took the Singapore Airlines flight and experienced a tremendously wonderful flight in addition to the comfortable transfers we experienced.
The Singapore flights were wonderful. We were on the new Air Bus A380 aircraft. The flight attendants were extremely attentive and helpful. In addition to handing out menu booklets showing the dinner choices and breakfast service they also provided us with a small flight kit with socks to keep your feet warm if you wanted to remove your shoes and also a small toothbrush and toothpaste. Prior to each meal service they passed out hot towels in order to ‘freshen-up’ before eating. There were two meal services on each flight. The food was plentiful and delicious. Throughout the flight they made frequent rounds with trays of water, juice, and wine and happily brought you additional or other beverages upon request.
The staff is continuously walking the aisles to see if anyone needs anything, always with a smile and an eagerness to provide service. For example, I was reading a magazine and a flight attendant came by and turned on her light for me.
The on-board toilets were stocked with additional toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand lotion and mouthwash.
The plane is set up with 3 – 4 – 3 seating. The seats were very comfortable and each was supplied with a pillow and blanket. We could notice that the seats and leg room were wider than the domestic flights. Although I believe it only differs by an inch, it does make a big difference in your comfort. Each seat was also equipped with a personal entertainment system with a plethora of movies, TV shows, games, and music to keep you well occupied.
I had a wonderful vacation, transfer experience, and a tremendously pleasant flight. I hope my story inspired you to embark on the same journey and experience the same if not more pleasant vacation as I did.
