A Review Of Our Singapore Airlines Business Class Flight

On our recent vacation, we had the pleasure of flying with and in Singapore Airlines Business Class. This certainly was a special treat for us, enjoying this luxurious type of air travel.

As a retired blue collar worker, ever having the luxury to afford such travel is out of the question. Having used frequent flyer credit cards for many years however, can and did make this journey possible. Below is our Singapore Airlines Business Class Flight Review experience.

Travel like a VIP in Business Class with Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines Flight – Singapore to Melbourne 777 – 300ER

Our journey had us departing from Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN) to Melbourne, Australia (MEL). This was a part of our journey after enjoying a wonderful vacation in Thailand. We wanted to break the trip home, with a stop over in Australia for a few days.

We had never been to Melbourne and were excited about spending 5 nights there, before continuing home to BC Canada.

Upon arriving at Changi Airport, we made our way to the Singapore Airlines check in counter.

Of course, there was a special line for Business Class passengers. The Economy Class line was quite busy on our arrival, but we just breezed right through. What a treat, compared to what we are normally used to, usually flying economy class.

The ticket agent was very courteous, checked us in quickly and pointed the way to their business class lounge for us to enjoy before our flight.

Singapore Airlines Business Class Lounge at Changi Airport

Once cleared through airport security screening, we made our way to the airlines exclusive Lounge for business and first class passengers.

I made sure to arrive at the airport well in advance, so we could enjoy this special treatment flying business class!

After being warmly greeted and checking in to the lounge, we found some comfortable seats to sit back and relax. Their lounge was absolutely huge in size, with ample room to find a nice comfortable spot to enjoy.

The choices for dining were like being at an upper class buffet restaurant. The selections and variety to choose from were absolutely amazing and delicious.

It was extremely difficult not to select too much from the wonderful buffet, before beginning our long flight. We knew that our flight offered some wonderful looking dining choices as well.

What a special way to start our long haul business class flight to Melbourne!

Singapore Flight To Melbourne – Tullamarine Airport (MEL)

Our flight would be about 7 hours and 30 minutes in length, and the first time I was actually looking forward to a long flight. What a difference flying Business Class can make!

After arriving at the boarding gate, we were one of the first to board the aircraft.

Our flight attendant greeted us and directed us to our reserved seats. We were immediately greeted with a small glass of champagne. When you arrive at your seat, you will find …

Pillow, Blanket, Slippers, Noise Cancelling Headphones, Vanity Kit, Bottled Water and In Flight Menu.

Our seat could fully recline to a bed by remote control. We also had our own large television screen for viewing.

After take off, we were formally introduced and warmly greeted by our flight attendant who would serve us on board. We were then asked if we would like a drink, along with a snack to start off.

We were wined, dined and offered snacks at any time we wished throughout the flight. You definitely do not go hungry flying with Singapore Airlines! For main meals, you have a choice of choosing from their Japanese or Western Menu.

Below, is a sample of what our menu choices were, and what to expect for your gourmet entrees with JAL Business Class.

Prior to Arrival

Main Course

In flight snacks and drinks are available at any time throughout your flight.

This flight was an amazing flight experience, arriving in Melbourne well fed and rested. What a complete opposite from traveling in Economy class.

Singapore Airlines staff right from the ticket agents, lounge personnel to our flight attendants, all were extremely friendly. Our flight attendants could not have done enough for us during the entire length of the flight.

Business Class …. “The Only Way To Fly!”

Conclusion

This was our first flight with Singapore Airlines, and what an excellent flight experience it was. I can’t imagine what First Class travel would be like after experiencing this high level of service.
We are spoiled forever!

Unfortunately, I can’t comment on what a long haul flight in Economy Class would be like, as we have not taken a flight in this class as of yet. If you have done so, your comments would be appreciated below!

I’ve always said to my readers, if you love to travel and you use a credit card at home, why not choose one that offers travel incentives. We have used Alaska Airlines Mastercards for years now. We have always had excellent flights with them over the years. A big bonus is they also have numerous Airline partners to choose from.

In fact, these flights were booked with our Alaska Airlines credit card miles earned. It took a number of years to build up the miles, but hey, there was gold at the end of the rainbow! We enjoyed a total of 3 wonderful International Business Class flights with Singapore and Japan Airlines on this trip.

In Canada, we also use a Westjet World Elite Travel Mastercard, gaining points for air travel with them, and a number of other incentives their credit card offers as well.

I’ve also included a very prominent website {The Travel Specialists} and their blog post on Singapore Airlines. Definitely worth a read if you’re thinking of flying with this wonderful airline.
