It has been 6 years since my maiden flight experience with Singapore Airlines in the year 2007 and followed by year 2008 and 2009, becoming one of the luckiest and earliest to experience flying on the largest commercial aircraft in the world, the Airbus A380. After a 4 year hiatus, I have managed to purchase a promotional ticket from Singapore Airlines to Tokyo again. Much have changed to the Boeing 777 interior which I have flew in the year 2007. Nevertheless, the experience is still great.
Singapore to Tokyo (Haneda) Route
Singapore Airlines flies to both to Haneda Airport or Narita Airport. If the route to Narita Airport is chosen, most likely that there will be an opportunity to fly on the Airbus A380. However, the Airbus A380 does not fly to Haneda Airport. Selecting the Haneda Airport route however was a better choice as it is situated at the heart of Tokyo with convenience in commuting.

Tokyo(Haneda) to Singapore Route
An early morning flight was taken from Tokyo (Haneda) to Singapore with a yet another Boeing 777 aircraft
|Early flight offers you more empty seats with the opportunity to grab the middle 4-seats in Economy class|
This refurbished aircraft spots new air conditioning system that provides better airflow and cooling process. However, there will be no options to adjust the air conditioner at your own personal space.
|This is the way to enjoy the whole 4-seats|
|In contrast to the Tokyo bound aircraft, this route’s Boeing 777 provides personal power supply at every economy seats just like the Airbus A380.|
|Again, I have chosen international menu with delicious breakfast served.|
|I have selected another international seafood menu with delicious vegetables, fish, shrimps etc.|
|Like all standard premium airlines, Singapore Airlines do serve numerous soft drinks coupled with fruit juices and wine which is free of charge (well it’s already included into the bill).|
One of the final highlight of this flight is the Singapore Airlines very Singapore Girl. Singapore Girl is a consistent visual advertising slogan applied to depictions of flight attendants of Singapore Airlines dressed in distinctive sarong kebaya which is the official uniform of Singapore Airlines.

Overall, it’s good to be back flying on SIA which is famously known as SQ. In my personal opinion, the quality of Singapore Airlines have not deteriorated and it has exceed my expectation beyond. As SIA has become my number one favourite airlines of all time, I have opted for another flight on SQ to Hong Kong for new year countdown on the Airbus A380.
