I arrived at London Heathrow well in time for my morning flight to Singapore. Check-in was a breeze and I had lots of time to clear security before heading to the lounge for a light snack.

At around half an hour before departure time, I proceeded to the gate for boarding. Business Class passengers were called to board immediately after Suites and PPS Club passengers. As usual, there was a dedicated aerobridge for the Business Class passengers seated on the upper deck.

I settled into my seat 14A located in the forward mini cabin on the upper deck. I am a big fan of the 2006 Business Class seats as they are the widest in the industry. More recent updates to the Business Class product have seen the seats becoming narrower. It’s a pity really, but at least Singapore Airlines has always maintained an all-aisle access Business Class cabin, which is the gold standard for Business Class travel these days.

Lunch and breakfast, as well as an optional light bites meal, were to be served on the flight.

As the doors were closed, I stretched out to enjoy the spacious seat while enjoying my glass of apple juice.

After a short taxi, we took off pretty much on time, and reached our cruising altitude soon after.

The lunch service commenced with Singapore Airlines’ signature satay skewers, which were succulent and tasty.

Next was “Yum Woon Sen Kung”, or marinated Thai style prawns with vermicelli salad.

For the main course, I had the braised cod fillet with laksa gravy, vegetables and steamed rice.

To round off the meal, I had tiramisu glace, which tasted perfect.

The cabin lights were then dimmed to allow us to get some sleep. It’s easy to deploy the seat into one of the largest lie-flat beds in Business Class. Singapore Airlines doesn’t offer Business Class passengers with sleepwear, so I decided to change into something more comfortable.

Mid-flight, I felt a little hungry so I requested for the noodles with chicken and Chinese greens.

At around two hours prior to arrival, the cabin crew started preparing the cabin for the breakfast service, which began with sliced fresh fruit.

Next, I skipped the cereal and opted for the strawberry yoghurt instead.

For the main course, I had the mushroom omelette with beef sausage, roasted tomato and potatoes.

It was perfect weather during the descent and final approach into Singapore. From the south, passengers seated on the left side of the aircraft will get to enjoy views of the Singapore skyline. We touched down on time and disembarked at the gate shortly after. Another great flight with Singapore Airlines!
