Flight Review: SQ036 – SIN – TPE

I am sitting in seat 19D, the first row of the second Business class cabin, on this Singapore Airlines A350-900 flight to Taipei. The cabin is empty – it’s just my partner and myself and a couple of flight attendants looking after us.

The seats are ‘regional’ business class but to be honest I don’t know what the difference is between these seats and long haul as they are huge, recline to a fully-flat bed, and are full of hidden storage spaces and endless buttons to press.

Massive Business class seats and an empty cabin – bonus!

The interactive TV is large with endless channels of entertainment to choose from, and heaps of space to stretch out and relax!

Shortly after take-off service starts with a glass of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee Brut (Champagne, France) followed by my much-anticipated pre-ordered ‘book the cook’ Indian lamb Shank lunch. It is delicious and comes with all the trimmings. I pair this somewhat strangely with a shot of Junmai Ginjo Sake (Japan) followed by a glass of 2015 Clarendelle (Bordeaux, France). The dessert is a particular standout – a lavender mousse cake and a cheese platter, which goes well with a shot of Baileys (neat).

Of course the requisite almonds & cashews….
The meal is delicious!
A perfect end to a lovely meal!

As you can imagine after all the food and booze I become quite sleepy and ask the flight attendant to turn the seat into a bed (it’s a little tricky and required some manual maneuvers – not just pressing a button). Before long, with a warm duvet covering me, I fall into a deep sleep.

All in all it is a great 4.5 hour flight, good service, and great food/drinks.

We land 30 minutes ahead of schedule.
