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…

    They ran out of the main course?

  2. Andy Bluebear Guest

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

  3. Thierry Guest

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

  4. coalharbour Guest

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

  5. Jimgotkp Guest

    Where's the salmon with the caviar?

  6. jade Guest

    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....

  7. Ladytravelbug Guest

    All male flight attendants

  8. PanAm Guest

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

  9. Dan Guest

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

  10. PowerJoe Guest

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

  11. Matthew Guest

    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?

  12. mangoMan Gold

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

  13. Scott Guest

    They put Tabasco sauce all over your desert plate?

  14. lucky OMAAT

    @ 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!

  15. John L Guest

    I took another look. No creme fraiche!!!

  16. John L Guest

    The caviar smelled like fish?

  17. BrewerSEA Platinum

    The coulis with your dessert looks absolutely disgusting...

  18. Hamurabi Guest

    They introduced a new bubbly on that route?

  19. Matthew Guest

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

    With your parents? :)

  20. canuck_in_ca Guest

    +1 on the running out of limes

  21. Scott Guest

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

  22. Sunny Guest

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

  23. TonySCV Guest

    That dessert presentation is Unitedesque.

  24. Chris Guest

    My opinion it was probably some smelly left coaster

  25. Ralph Guest

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

  26. mike Guest

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

  27. Lantean Diamond

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

  28. Iain Guest

    Don't tell me they ran out of pajamas?

  29. gpapadop Guest

    No hot towel, oh no!!!

  30. JohnDP Guest

    they asked you for "chicka o biif"?

  31. Dan Guest

    They ran out of soft drinks?? Ha!

  32. RG Guest

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

  33. Craig New Member

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

  34. Alex Gold

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