I am at first assigned Emergency Exit seat 45A on this Qantas Airlines Airbus A330-300 aircraft bound for Singapore, but as it is an extremely empty cabin, I am re-assigned the whole of row 47, seats D-G, for the duration of the flight.
Being a night flight, this is a welcome relief, allowing me to sleep later on in a fully-flat position (very rare in Economy).
Shortly after take-off the menus and arrival cards are handed out (I don’t need one as I can use the eGates). I choose something light, having enjoyed a hearty meal in the lounge. My choice of Salad of salmon with black rice, edamame beans, wombok, pickled ginger and miso dressing hits the spot, with a vodka Ginger beer.
I watch a couple of movies on the excellent Q Entertainment system; the last one being “Notorious RBG” which I highly recommend.
I manage to sleep for a good 4 hours before waking up around 1.30am (SYD time) for a light snack of steamed dumplings and a coffee before we land surprisingly an hour early in Singapore.
Can’t complain 😜
