Eager with anticipation for this new aircraft (see previous blog) I boarded flight 479 on time at Johannesburg airport.
Once on board, I was immediately taken by the spacious layout of the cabin. Remember this is a wide-body aircraft and most carriers put at least 5 seats across if not more. On Singapore Airlines its only 4. The cabin is vast, airy and spacious. The seat had tons of storage, nooks and crannies for shoes and other essentials.
By far the best I have seen to date. Then comes Singapore’s service which is impeccable. The most extensive menu of any flight so far. Absolutely world class.
I cannot wait to compare it to the Dreamliner (Boing 787). It is a mile above the 777 series. Truly amazing.
My lunch consisted of a Singapore Sling, followed by chicken satay and a lovely appetizer of shrimp and duck. Then a filet beef on a mixed been salad.
Everything was tasty and beautifully presented.
#1 so far.
