When I tried to select my seat a few weeks back, only middle seats towards the back of the plane were available. As of yesterday, a seat in the first row of economy – 31C became available, so I grabbed it. The only drawback: a baby on one side and an infant on the other. How luck can change…
The pre-flight service starts with hot mildly scented white towelettes handed out to all passages. A refreshing start.
In fact it is these ongoing little touches that make this flight a pleasure. For instance my second coffee is served on a mini-tray – not just dumped on my fold-down table. The continual smile and ‘can-do’ attitude each time I ask for something (a Singapore Sling, second coffee).
My pre-ordered seafood meal is nice,
consisting of a salmon omelette, hashed potatoes, and asparagus. A fruit basket and wholemeal roll complements the meal.
I watch a new release on ‘Krisworld’ – “Gambit”, starring Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz. It’s a hoot.
And then there is the ‘onboard’ bathroom – with amenities including face cream, hand lotion, and mint mouthwash.
