A Singapore Airlines first class flight that left me disappointed (no, really)…

40

There are a few things in life I consider to be guarantees. For example, if you show me a Harry Potter movie, I guarantee I’ll fall asleep. If you ask me to go through the full body scanner at a US airport, I guarantee I’ll be getting a massage in a private room instead. And if you put me in Singapore Airlines first class, I guarantee my expectations will be exceeded… or so I thought.

I just flew Singapore Airlines first class, and for the first time I can remember, was actually legitimately disappointed. I’ll save the details for the trip report – consider this a teaser. Though of course feel free to guess, and if anyone gets it right I’ll be happy to say so.

And no, the disappointment wasn’t that the first lady of Zimbabwe and her entourage were taking up half of the first class cabin…

    Doesn't live up to the loft standards set by the Red Roo?

  2. Craig

    They last minute switched out a A380 for a good old 747-400 on your sector

  3. RG

    You were scheduled for an A380 but they changed the aircraft?

  4. Dan

    They ran out of soft drinks?? Ha!

  5. JohnDP

    they asked you for "chicka o biif"?

  6. Iain

    Don't tell me they ran out of pajamas?

  7. Lantean

    I was disappointed last time I flew Singapore too (it was just business but still...).
    BTW, many people misspell mAssage... mEssage is something different.
    ;-)

    It looks like you ordered the diet menu. Portion control. They didn't want you to feed you that much...

  9. Ralph

    Have I missed something? Which trip are you taking then?

  10. Chris

    My opinion it was probably some smelly left coaster

  11. TonySCV

    That dessert presentation is Unitedesque.

  12. Sunny

    is this the JFK-FRA segment on the Old 747?

  13. Scott

    I'm guessing either an A380 was swapped out for a 747 or... They had no lemons for the diet coke...

  14. canuck_in_ca

    +1 on the running out of limes

  15. Matthew

    JFK-FRA? Did you use miles? What program?

    With your parents? :)

  16. Hamurabi

    They introduced a new bubbly on that route?

  17. BrewerSEA

    The coulis with your dessert looks absolutely disgusting...

  18. John L

    The caviar smelled like fish?

  19. John L

    I took another look. No creme fraiche!!!

    @ Ralph -- I haven't started it yet, this is a trip I'm taking right now.

    Folks, you're assuming I'm kidding. I'm being serious. Seriously!

  21. Scott

    They put Tabasco sauce all over your desert plate?

  22. mangoMan

    I see an appetizer and dessert - they must've forgot to cater the main course?

  23. Matthew

    I suspect you had a bad crew--which happens from time to time even on SQ.

    Did you have to fight for the caviar and a drink with dinner like Gary did on his horrible LH F flight to India last year?

  24. PowerJoe

    The smiley on the dessert plate has a wry smile too!

  25. Dan

    Coins, we all know you're serious, that's why we're kidding around.

  26. PanAm

    Get it straight, Lucky needs a lime in his diet coke! :)

  27. Ladytravelbug

    All male flight attendants

  28. jade

    Your diet coke has NO lime NOT EVEN lemon! where have all the citrus fruits gone?!

    And the vanilla ice cream was served too melty....

  29. Jimgotkp

    Where's the salmon with the caviar?

  30. coalharbour

    that's a crowded F section! and those dated overhead bins!

  31. Thierry

    The Captain's wife upgraded on board and she keeps on going to the cockpit and back again?
    Or an infant in First?

  32. Andy Bluebear

    All the Singapre logos on silverware, plates, and glasses were not pointing at you?

  33. Vik

    They ran out of the main course?
