45,000 feet above the South China Sea is as close as John and I have been to heaven on an airplane, especially when we’re flying with Singapore Airlines. I’m talking about sheer comfort and class aboard an airplane.
There’s a reason why Singapore Airlines was ranked 33rd this year in Fortune’s World Most Admired Companies in 2009. It’s an airline that has excelled in safety, service, and innovation for years and is well-known amongst travel enthusiasts as being the very best of the best. We wholeheartedly agree.
This was our first experience flying with Singapore Airlines. Our business class tickets on Singapore Airlines were purchased with our air miles. We didn’t spend a cent. Check out Fly For Free With Air Miles if you’re interested in finding out how we did it.
Mixed Satay Appetizer and Seafood Salad
We each enjoyed a spacious fully reclining and adjustable seat, personal television, in-seat power supply, and USB port. From Taiwan’s KrisFlyer lounge to Singapore’s Changi International Airport, John and I were pampered with food, entertainment and the ever-charming demeanor of the airline’s famous Singapore Girls.
The airline serves gourmet cuisine in all three classes. We enjoyed a full five course meal, which kept us preoccupied for the duration of our short flight. However, we still managed to take full advantage of the complimentary Singapore Slings and the in-flight entertainment system, KrisWorld. Introduced in 1997, Krisworld offers on-demand movies, free language lessons, audio, and Nintendo games in all classes. All in all, we were really happy with our journey on Singapore Airlines. In our opinion, flying doesn’t get much better than this.
Our main entree was steak with roasted vegetables, with vanilla ice cream and fresh mango sauce for dessert.
Finally, an assortment of cheese, grapes, and wine. The staff came pretty close to having to roll us off the plane.
