Arrived at London’s Heathrow with all my bags for my flight back to Singapore on SQ321. The porter was overwhelmed with my bags, but managed to wheel everything to the check-in counter with the use of a huge trolley. As usual, SQ staff rarely charge overweight fees unless the flight is almost full.
Boarded proceeded smoothly, and once onboard I settled into my assigned seat 14K on the upper deck of the A380, my ride to Singapore.
I had a look at the menu before takeoff as I didn’t book the cook for this flight. Nothing too exceptional, but I’m not very picky with food served onboard Singapore Airlines.
The window seats on the upper deck have extra storage space in between the seats and the aircraft walls, which are extremely useful for larger items that do not fit in the smaller compartments in the seat.
Supper was served the moment we reached cruising altitude. I enjoyed the smoked salmon salad which was not too filling.
This was followed by roast duck noodles. The duck was moist and succulent, and tasted amazing even at altitude.
The last course was a banoffee pie, which was very well balanced in terms of sweetness and richness.
Soon it was time for bed, or some channel surfing so it seems.
Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself. Before I knew it, the cabin crew came around to serve hot towels before the before touch-down meal service. I decided to have the meal “in bed”.
The fresh fruit on board Singapore Airlines is always served cold. A great perk-me-up.
For the main course I had the braised noodles with seafood and greens, which was not too oily, thankfully. As usual, I opted for the croissant, which was served warm and very fluffy.
We landed on schedule and taxied past quite a number of A380s before parking at the gate. Another awesome flight with Singapore Airlines as always!
