Long Flights

I never liked flying too much. Long flights are especially nasty.

On my first long haul flight to Australia as a teenager, I threw up 9 times on the 9 hour flight.

Man is made to roam on the ground, not in the air, I think.

Flying SQ business class though does make it a lot easier to endure long haul flights.

But still - the humming noise on the plane, the weird smell of the aircraft and the horrid tasting orange juice (which for some reason inevitably taste odd in an aircraft) - even SQ couldn't take those away.

I flew SQ Business from Singapore to London this time, and from New York to Singapore.

Between the 2, I must say I liked the flight originating from Singapore a lot better. The food was better, I thought - they served satay as snacks instead of the usual peanuts or pretzels. And the appetizers and desserts were pretty good too. I never liked mains on flights - there is always some sort of "microwave smell" about them.

Satay - something I always look forward to

Prawns with pomelo - not too bad

Mango and crabmeat salad - this one is really yummy

Ben and Jerry ice-cream is always good

Used to work as a flight steward in SQ... the pictures remind me of the good food on board, especially the biz and first class...

gosh that food looks good - I have never seen food like that on any airlines I have traveled on, although I must admit I always fly economy. Maybe one day they will bump me up to business class!

Hi AA, Ting, I'd never fly economy on non-business trips.. so it is kind of a treat to fly business. On long flights, I am really grateful.. not just for the food.. but the bed..
