SQ 493 – DXB – SIN – 21 December 2013 – Economy

Flight Time: 7 hours 30 minutes

Distance: 3,636 miles

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…

The tray fully expanded.

SQ 493 personal in-flight entertainment

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.

SQ 493 refreshments

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!
