The full-service regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, has just announced the official launch of the All-Time Favourites menu which is a speciailly-curated selection of meals that are available on SilkAir flights from Singapore (3 hours and above) in Business Class. Similar to Book the Cook on Singapore Airlines, the All-Time Favourites menu will be made available to eligible customers via the respective SilkAir or Singapore Airlines websites, or through travel agents and the SilkAir or Singapore Airlines reservations offices, and will be available for all meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There are also some new additions to the in-lflight offerings for Busiess Class travellers alongside the introduction of the All-Time Favourites menu. Eligible customers are now able to indulge in freshly-squeezed orange juice and champagne, upon boarding the flight. They can also look forward to handmade chocolate pralines and a new hot beverage offering of Masala Tea.
All-Time Favourites like the Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice, Fried Carrot Cake, and Fried Hokkien Mee are among the Oriental inflight menu offerings, along with Muslim favourites like the Roti Jala, Mee Rebus, and Ikan Assam. For those who enjoy Indian delicacies, delectable dishes like the Chicken Tikka, Mutton Masala, and Fish Biryani will tingle your tastebuds. Customers who prefer Western meals can look forward to dishes such as classic Blueberry Pancakes, Roasted Salmon Fillet, or Grilled Beef Tenderloin.
A third daily flight between Singapore and Auckland will be launched from 28 October 2018 to boost capacity on this route by up to 40% - this will add more than 165,000 seats between these two cities per year. The additional service alongside a revision of current schedules will shorten the connection times as well as connectivity through the Singapore hub.
Following the devaluation of KrisFlyer Miles on Star Alliance Redemption Tickets today, KrisFlyer members are now able to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for award tickets on Star Alliance and other partners on singaporeair.com or via their mobile applicable from 07 December 2017 (which is today!). If you login to your KrisFlyer account and try to make a redemption booking, you will notice that there are three buttons located on the search results page and you will be able to sort through flights that are operated by Singapore Airlines/SilkAir, Star Alliance Airlines and Other Partner Airlines respectively.
The next time you book a flight with Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, be mindful that some of these destinations may be on the Group's low-cost subsidiary Scoot. Customers will now be able to enjoy more choice and convenience when they travel to more than 130 destinations that are served by the Singapore Airlines Group as a result of this new codeshare agreement.
Asia Pacific's best Low Cost Airline for four consecutive years, Scoot, is planning to operate four-times-weekly flights between Singapore and Berlin with the iconic Boeing 787 Dreamliners from the second half of 2018, subject to regulatory approval. The low-cost arm of Singapore Airlines will be the Group's fourth destination in Germany after Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich, which are operated by Singapore Airlines.
I traveled from Auckland to Singapore on a direct Singapore Airlines flight in Business Class and was served one of the best Book The Cook meals that I have ever eaten in the sky. Find out how this 10-hour journey looks like in photos and why you should always endeavor to save your miles for longer haul flights like these!
When I visited Beijing back in July this year, I flew back from Beijing to Singapore on Air China's Business Class - it was my very first experience with Air China and even though it was quite a good flight (albeit being delayed for 3 hours), it was very different from what you would expect on a Singapore Airlines flight. Since I visited the Air China Business Class Lounge previously and have experienced firsthand at how busy it can actually get, I made plans to check out the arguably more exclusive Air China First Class Lounge instead this time.
The Cathay Pacific Group will be introducing high-speed WiFi to its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 fleets from mid-2018. This is in response to its customers' growing demand for in-flight connectivity and it follows the successful introduction of broadband services to its Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
made my way back to the Beijing Capital International Airport for my flight back to Singapore. Since my experience at the Air China Business Class Lounge (which I checked out in July 2017) previously has been fairly lacklustre, I have decided to try the Air China First Class Lounge instead - review of this lounge soon to come! It is definitely worth nothing that while the Air China First Class Lounge is reserved to passengers traveling on Air China and Star Alliance partners in First Class only, it is also a Priority Pass Lounge - this means to say that you will be able to access this 'esteemed' lounge if you have a valid Priority Pass membership (there is no reason why you do not have one if you hold any one of these eligible credit cards which give you free lounge access).
Changi Airport's largest restaurant, SORA, is now open in Terminal 2. The 7,760 sqft (approx. 721 sqm) space is home to a Japanese Gourmet Food Hall and it houses six Japanese restaurant brands with a seating capacity of about 300 diners. SORA, which translates into 'sky' in Japanese, marks the first time that ANA Trading - the trading arm of Japanese airline company, All Nippon Airways – is operating a food hall outside of Japan.
I flew from Singapore to Auckland (and back) on Singapore Airlines' Suites last year and have recently relived some of those happy moments from Singapore to Beijing where I enjoyed over a bottle of vintage Krug 2004 all to myself. Since I was booked a Premium Economy flight from Singapore to Auckland, I have waitlisted an upgrade from Premium Economy to Business Class for 35,000 KrisFlyer Miles and it cleared prior to the date of travel.
