Singapore Airline

Singapore Airline

I am flying Singapore Airline to India this time instead of Lufthansa.  The flight takes longer, but unless you are really in a hurry, I would recommend taking over Lufthansa any day.  Singapore airline is voted as the best airline in the world and I am really impressed by its service.

The seats of SQ is more comfortable than other airline with more leg rooms and wider seats.  The SQ plane feels so spacious compare to the planes of other airlines.  There are also more space in the toilet and the kitchen area.

The food service is super.  It is the first flight meal actually taste close to a real meal on ground.  Once on board, they hand out a menu listing all food and drinks available, so I know what I can order when the air hostess come by.  The air hostesses serve drinks more often than other airline.  They run the drink cart down the aisle twice back to back every time, so I can refill my drink.

I think the crown jewel of SQ is their entertainment system.  Not only each passenger has a mini TV, there is a huge collection of movies and TV.  This plane probably have more movies than the downloads in my hard drive.  All movies and TV are on demand, so you don’t have to work around the movie schedule.  You can start watching anytime you want and you can pause or fast forward in the movie.  On top of the in flight radio broadcast, the system also keep a library of complete CDs.  There are over 10 Chinese CDs of the latest albums from famous singers in HK or Taiwan.  The entertainment system is so overwhelming that I don’t know what to watch.

The ticket of Singapore Airline is more expensive, but extra comfort definitely worth the premium, especially when the ticket is paying by the company.

    The entertainment system in Air Canada flights looks good, “at the first glance”, although it doesn’t have a big collection. However, it doesn’t work. It crashes all the time, in all AC flights. SAS is good too, although the content is more European focus. I guess it depends on where the flights are serving at.

  • Yes, I agree the Singapore airline provide the best air services compared to all airlines in the world. You will see the flight attendant come so often to serve food and drinks with smile. Also, it provides a lot of variety for movies and TV shows. Most of them are European style. If you want to see more Chinese movies and TV shows, stick with Cathay Pacific.

  • the food and hostesses on SQ flights are simply outstanding 🙂 and they also have the most comfortable seats on the a380…….i reckon it’d fit 1.5 ppl like me (and i am a pretty big guy) easily.

    only problem with SQ is that their wine list is pretty poor. but then, i’d much rather drink crappy wine but have all the other goodies than vice versa…….

    Singapore Airline sis pretty good BUT it is not as good as Emirates, Cathay Pacific or JAL.. JAL are very very good and the hostesses are friendlier and more courtious (Japanese manners Versus Chinese manners.. no contest !). I recently flew from Sydney to Singapore on the A380 and the aircraft was amazing. Lots of room, fantastic entertainment and ultra modern. However, trhe staff were not that friendly, quite slow (I know there are a lot of seats but 35 minutes for a drink after ordering ??? ) I would definitely recommend them though over Qantas Air India (I had bad experiences on Air India). The worst ever airline is Iberia, their staff stole belongings from my baggage and when reported they airline blatently denied it. Also the bad management meant delays in flights which resulted in missed connections and my bags being sent from Cuba to London via Madrid seperatly to me.. which is how they came to have been left in Madrid and subsequently being rifled and robbed… they are an atorcious disgrace to teh airline industry. As a footnote I would like to state that my father works fro British Airways so I have travelled and flown hundreds and hundreds of times.. NEVER have I had such a bad service as Iberia…

  • I never heard of Iberia? What country’s carrier is it?
