Average experiences with Singapore Airlines
Member Name: endilwen
Advantages: Long haul, good service
Disadvantages: Being woken up by cabin crew to be offered a paper when I was asleep, temperature uncomfortable
I flew with Singapore Airlines in 2009 to New Zealand from the United Kingdom (27 hours) and from Australia back to the United Kingdom (26 hours).
I had heard very good things about Singapore Airlines, perhaps it was too hyped up for me, hence why I felt a little disappointed. There was nothing wrong with the service; I was offered a newspaper, a hot towel, meals and in-flight entertainment. My seat was a little cramped (and I, by no fault of the airline, enjoyed my 26 hour flight with a child kicking me in the leg) and I found the in-flight entertainment system tempramental at best. It was very difficult to sleep even though I was exhausted due to the temperature being so cold.
When I did manage to drift off to sleep, the hostess would wake me up despite me being asleep; this was rather annoying since I was rather upset to be leaving Australia and really just wanted to sleep through the entire experience of coming home.
I think I would probably try another airline next time I travel to Australia/New Zealand, perhaps Quantas or Air New Zealand. I think Singapore Airlines have an over-hyped reputation and while the experience wasn't terrible, it wasn't what it had been made out to be.
Summary: Fine to fly with, but don't expect better than average.
