It was a great ride but it was also my first and last award ticket with SQ as they mutually agreed to not list their seats on United award ticket reservations 😦 You can still call in to check for availability.
A menu, what a novel idea!
Drinks, with Singapore Sling described in detailed! I had one or four of that, just to be sure…
Dinner line up!
Snack or second meal before landing.
Menu in Arabic
The tray opens in half for smaller meals, complete with mirrors and a cover.
The tray fully expanded.
This kinda captures it all if not cut out on the left and right. All kinds of plugs on the right. Cup holder on the bottom left. Remote control beside it, instead of on the arm-rest. This makes for easier reach of the remote, what a great design idea. The screen itself is big for economy class standards, with touch screen capabilities.
So we start with roasted peanuts and, of course, Singapore Sling. Glad to have better service after flying with United right before it and almost missing my connection. Cheers!
