Check in

The first class check in counters were almost empty since my flight from Tokyo with United arrived about half past midnight.

 

I tried to check in my luggage which was tagged with priority and first class tags.

 

Dear Mr. Arthur ...

My first ever first class boarding pass from Singapore Airlines plus the invitation to The Private Room.

After security, I went straight to The Private Room, the review of which you can find here. I also took time to visit the First Class Lounge in Terminal 3 as well as the one in Terminal 2, reviews of which you can find here and here.

Boarding started a bit late at gate F60, Terminal 2.

Welcome to my first class seat, 2A!

It's just so beautiful and spacious!

Another reading lamp on the right hand side of the seat as well as headset outlet.

View of the first class cabin with a 1-2-1 configuration having a total of 8 seats. I was the only passenger on the flight so I was treated like a king.

 

I asked the cabin attendant on which routes they are using these seats and he told me they are being used to European destinations like Milan, Munich and some of the flights to Frankfurt and London. Cool!

My fried beef kway teow was so good I could eat another plate!

Very nice cutleries.

I just love the orchids...

And the Salvatore Ferragamo products.

I was also given a writing kit and playing cards by Muhamad, one of the cabin attendants who was serving the cabin.

Arrival in Jakarta

I had about 12 hours in Jakarta before my Air Asia flight to Bali so I decided to go to the city and do some sightseeing.

Conclusion

 

February 22, 2014 This is really something you need to experience specially if you are an avid fan of Singapore Airlines first class, at least for starters. I know how hard it is to fly in first class with Singapore Airlines using miles and since most long hauls are impossible, I'm gonna have to be contented with this one. The seat was very spacious and comfortable, the food was phenomenal and the service was impeccable. I was always adressed by my name which is really appreciated.

 

To Mr. Idros, the inflight Supervisor and to Muhamad and Chan Hwee, the two cabin attendants who took care of me throughout the flight, you all made my first ever flight in first class with Singapore Airlines a very memorable one. Thank you so much. Till next time!
