The time had finally come, I was off to China with Wendy Wu Tours & some 30 lucky Agents. But before my incredible land journey could begin, I had to find out what it’s like flying with Singapore Airlines.

Here’s what I thought about the carrier’s service from Sydney to Singapore:

 

Check in & Beyond

As I had already checked in online I had a speedy check-in experience at Sydney Airport. The internet check-in line was significantly shorter than the standard Economy one so I was served in a matter of minutes. All interactions with the staff were pleasant and efficient.

 

Seat and entertainment

For this flight I was in Economy Class in 43B, a centre seat between the window and the aisle. The seat was fairly spacious and comfortable for Economy.

My entertainment screen was one of the biggest I have seen to date and with a choice of 300 movies to watch (including 51 new releases) I knew I wasn’t getting bored on this flight. Wi-Fi packages were available for purchase.

 

Food and Service

I flew out on the first day of winter in Australia so was pleased to be offered a warm towel shortly after getting settled in my seat. We were also handed a bag with socks and toothbrush inside which was a nice way to treat those in Economy Class because let’s face it, we need warm feet and clean teeth just as much as those in Business Class.

I was very impressed with how much water and juice we were offered throughout the flight. Keeping hydrated in the air is so important to your wellbeing when travelling.

We were served both breakfast and lunch on this flight. I enjoyed braised egg noodles with fish, prawns and Chinese greens for breakfast along with a brioche and fresh fruit. I also selected the Oriental option for lunch which was wok fried chicken in dried red chilli sauce serve with bean cured veggies and steamed rice.

It was all quite tasty (for airplane food) and it got my palate excited for the Asian food I would be enjoying on my trip. Western options were also available for those who aren’t looking for Asian flavours. Last but not least the connoisseur ice creams were a divine touch, making the flight super sweet.

 

Verdict

After a number of recent long haul flights where the hosties were nowhere to be seen for most of the flight, it was a real treat to have such friendly staff being so present with the passengers. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Singapore Airlines ticked all the boxes for me in terms of food, entertainment and service. I would definitely chose to fly with them again.
