Flight review of Guangzhou to Singapore
Table of Contents
Flight time: approx 4 hours
Plane type: Boeing 777-200ER
Seats: 11H & 11K
Check in was quick and easy, we got to go through the skip the line which was nice as there was a nice long line. There was a “skip the line” for customs and security as well when flying business class.
SilverKris lounge/Premium lounge:
We had access to the Premium lounge (just after immigration) in the Guangzhou airport which I found to be very nice. At first we were a little confused as it seems to have several entry points but each time we walked past Singapore Airlines was not on the list (and we didn’t want to look silly), we finally “took the plunge” and walked up to the counter where we were warmly greeted. In the middle of the lounge is a nice selection of food and drinks and the seating was very comfortable. The Wi-Fi worked very well which kept us entertained until our flight was ready for boarding.
There are only 7-8 rows of business class seats on the Boeing 777-200ER, in a 2-2-2 configuration. The inclined-flat seats, which are very spacious and comfortable; you are able to control the different angles of different sections of the seat for different comfort levels using the control panel on the side of your seat. These seats were located at the bulk head which was great because I didn’t have to climb over someone to get up.
These seats have a lot of little storage areas, USB and Power point to ensure you are able to work on your laptop if need be. However there were not as many storage places on the bulkhead so all of your items either need to be stored down the side of your chair (in a small storage area) or in the overhead locker.
The 15.4 Inch sized TV’s are located on the bulkhead in front of you with the control on the side of your seat. The position of the control was a little annoying if you moved around in your seat as you could accidently bump it and change the settings, the other small annoying thing was that the remote had a small screen to show you the time and how long is left on the flight which was great except it was very right and could disturb you sleeping..
The Krisworld inflight entertainment system offers over a 100 movies, 170 TV series, 740 music CDs and 80 games, you are never left bored, including new blockbusters that are only just coming out in cinemas in Australia.
The headsets provided as Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones which do cut out a lot of plane noise ensuring you can get completely caught up in your movie.
As soon as we arrived on the flight we were served with a glass of Taittinger champagne (or given the option for a different drink), we were also asked what we would like to drink after take-off.
Shortly after take-off the crew came around with our fresh beverages and also took our food orders.
