Flight Review – Singapore Airlines Adelaide to Rome return (Singapore stop-over)

After my flight from Adelaide to Singapore and our Business class flights with Singapore airlines I was hooked! I initially booked from flight from Adelaide to Rome with Emirates but decided to cancel and go with Singapore Airlines as i knew what to expect with the flights and the amazing service. This is my review of each leg of my flights (4 in total): Adelaide to Singapore Flight time: approx 7 hours and 20 minutes Stop over time: approx 1 hour. Flight number: SQ 276 Check in: The check in process for fairly quick and there was no long line which was lovely. The staff member was very friend and professional and off my bags went. Seats: I was in a 2 seater by the window, the seat itself was fairly comfortable, I find that Singapore Airlines has enough cushioning for the seat to be comfortable for long flights, its not…

SilkAir Airlines Flight review of Business Class flight from Kalibo to Singapore

Business Class flight from Singapore to Kalibo via Cebu through SilkAir Airlines Flight time: 6 hours, 25 minutes Seats 1A & 1B Check in: Check in was fairly easy as we followed out lovely Shangri-La hotel rep who took us through check in, customs and ensuring we were looked after through the whole process. Lounge Access: Unfortunately as Kalibo is a fairly new airport on a small island there is no VIP/Lounge access with our business class tickets, there is however a small VIP lounge that you can pay to get into (5,800++ pesos), however it does not offer much, a few selection of drinks, philipino snacks and a few tables and chairs and of course WIFI, it is a bit nicer than sitting at the gate waiting. Seats: The Business class seats on SilkAir are older (as are the airplanes) however they are still comfortable and very wide. They did…

SilkAir Airlines Flight review of Business Class flight from Singapore to Kalibo via Cebu

Flight from Singapore to Kalibo via Cebu through SilkAir Airlines Flight time: 6 hours, 25 minutes Stop over time: 30mins at Cebu Seats 1D & 1F Check in: Check in was quick and easy through the business class line (got to love the perks of business class!). The Singapore Airlines staff were friendly as usual! SilverKris Lounge Access: We had access to the very large SilverKris Club Business Class lounge in Changi Airport. The SilverKris lounge has plenty of seating and a decent selection of food and beverages to enjoy while you wait for your next flight. There were also 2 walls of magazines and newspapers to read.   The bathrooms were fairly large with plenty of facilities for people including large showers.   Seats: The Business class seats on SilkAir are older (as are the airplanes) however they are still comfortable and very wide. They did not lay flat but…
Business Class review of Singapore Airlines - Guangzhou to Singapore

Business Class review of Singapore Airlines – Guangzhou to Singapore

Flight review of Guangzhou to Singapore Flight time: approx 4 hours Plane type: Boeing 777-200ER Seats: 11H & 11K Check in: 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…
Business Class review of Singapore Airlines Adelaide to Beijing via Singapore

Business Class review of Singapore Airlines Adelaide to Beijing via Singapore

Flight review of Adelaide to Singapore Flight time: approx 7 hours 30 minutes Stop over time: 8 hours Plane type – Airbus A330-300 Seats 12K & 12H Check in: What had me excited about flying business class with Singapore airlines wasn't just the large comfortable seating and leg room but the ability to "skip the line" when it came to check in. I absolutely hate standing in line for anything (as snobby as that sounds). We arrived at the Adelaide Airport and found the Singapore airlines business class check in line and within minutes we were happily on our way. SilverKris lounge: The SilverKris Lounge in Adelaide is located near gate 18 down the escalators once you have gone through customs. As this was our first experience in a club lounge we did not know what to expect however it was comfortable, a lot of seats, different types of food and newspapers…
Flight Review - Singapore Airlines Adelaide to London return (Singapore stop-over)

Flight Review – Singapore Airlines Adelaide to London return (Singapore stop-over)

When I learnt that I needed to get to London to see my poor sick grandmother I decided to try out Singapore Airlines as it seemed they had the best deal on flights and the shortest travel time which when you are travelling from Australia to London for 6 days, you need to be on a plane and travelling for as little time as possible! Read: Thrifty Travel Premium Review (exclusive flight deals) This is my review of each leg of my flights (4 in total): Adelaide to Singapore Flight time: 7 hours 20 minutes Plane type – Airbus A330-300 Seat: 48A Exit row Check in: Check in at the Singapore Airlines desk (near the Virgin airlines part of the airport) was quick with no lines in sight, the service provided was very professional but still very friendly. When boarding the plane, one of the flight attendants showed me to my seat…
