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.
