    Singapore Airlines Flight
    SQ 322
    Singapore to London
    Airbus A380

    This is the video I made -

    Here are more pictures on my blog - http://guitar123foodandtravel.blogspot.sg/2013/10/singapore-airlines-sq-322-flight.html


    This is at the gate at Changi Airport.

    This was the waiting area. There were a number of gates here, hence the area is very big. There was another SQ flight for Paris later that evening. There were a number of Caucasian couples waiting for the SQ-SIngapore to London flight and I did overhear some of the chatter. It sounded like many of them had just disembarked from a cruise ship, and were on the way back to Europe or USA.

    Boarding time. That's the plane that would bring me to London. Singapore Airlines was the first in the world to operate the A380, since 2007. How time flies. It has been 6 years.
    [​IMG]

    This was the route to the Upper Deck. This plane was configured as an all Business Class Upper Deck.
    [​IMG]

    This was my seat for the 13 hour flight, Seat 20K, window. It was about the middle of the plane. I had a decent view out of the window, as you can see from my video.
    [​IMG]

    This was the centre aisle. The Business class is in a 1-2-1 configuration.
    [​IMG]

    The seat.
    [​IMG]

    The welcome drink. I can't remember what this was, but I chose the non-alcoholic option.
    [​IMG]

    The menu. This was the panel of international chefs. Check out my video for the full menu.
    [​IMG]

    This was my drink after takeoff, the Singapore sling.
    [​IMG]

    Stretching my legs. Very comfortable.
    [​IMG]

    As this was a red eye flight, I did notice that some passengers decided to sleep and skip supper. Once the seat-belt sign was off, they converted their seat into the flat-bed, and went to sleep.

    Let's head on to the meal service. This was the first course, Parma Ham with some salad. It didn't taste bad, but it certainly wasn't my type of food.
    [​IMG]

    The choices for the main course were
    1) Grilled Prawns
    2) Famous Singapore Chicken Rice
    3) Seared beef fillet
    [​IMG]

    The Singapore Girl would come around taking your order for the main course before the meal service started. I used the 'Book the Cook' service, which is complimentary for all Business Class, First and Suites passengers. Do utilise this service, you have to go online or book through your travel agent, and select from a long list of dishes.

    The choice of dishes on 'Book the Cook' differs greatly, depending on where you are flying from. Flying out of Singapore, you would have the most choices. I chose the famous Lobster Thermidor and here is how it looks like. It was very succulent and delicious!
    [​IMG]

    I had a slight problem though. The King appeared, with his foot soliders, refusing to let me partake of the Lobster.
    [​IMG]

    When it came to dessert, again the same battle had to be fought with the King.
    [​IMG]

    After a very good meal, I decided to turn in for a good night's sleep. Do check out the trip video and blog posts for the rest of the review. Thanks for reading.

    Lord,
    Try the Lobster with the Beef Filet. Couldn't get much better. If it tastes as good as it looks, what a meal.

    I can't get enough lobster but I must agree on the Oysters. Lobster and drawn butter with a medium rare beef filet, man oh man. I'd fly on them just for the meal. Who cares where they were going.

    Josh ???? Never heard of. Unless it was the nickname given by the captain to his "autopilot"?

    That was more for the kids, really. When I go for my next Business trip, my kids may ask me to bring a different Lego man, and if so, he'll have a different name.

    We'll see. Thanks for reading.

    I have no idea. You heard what I heard on the video. Anybody knows?

    Honestly, I was a bit taken aback when the Captain said that the auto-pilot would land the plane, in the fog. Then again, I decided that it would be logical to trust the SQ Captain to know what he was doing. After all, SIA was the first Airline to fly the A380, since 2007.
