Boarding commenced as soon as we arrived at the gate.    When I originally booked this flight, SQ was using an A380-800.  However, scheduled maintenance for the A380 caused an old 77W to be swapped for two weeks, including our departure date.   Since it was only a 4h40m flight, just like LAX-JFK, not that big a deal. 

 

Today's menu.

And wine list.

Pre-departure beverages were limited to non-alcoholic as FA claimed that they could not serve alcohol on the ground in India. 

Once in the air, I decided to watch Premiers Crus, an entertaining wine-related French movie set in Burgundy.

While Mrs. SFO headed to sleep shortly after take-off.

But not me.  I'm always up for some food and drink.

Except that my seat controls and then IFE crapped out.  Our FA and purser had to reset it 4 times before it finally took.   Yeah, this looks like modern technology.  Ha.

Showtime.

To start, the Tandoori Spiced Lobster with chili grape chutney and dahi kachumber.  Very good.

The the Indian Style Creamy Carrot soup.  Meh. 

For my main, I went with another starter, the Trilogy of Asian Prawn.  OK, not so good.  Couple of bites and I was done.  

I finished my movie and then slept for a couple of hours before we began our descent to Changi, where we pulled into Gate B10 at the end of the B concourse.  While SQ provides great in flight service, its premium ground service is pretty much non-existent.   No car service (like AF), no buggy service (like TG), just a long, long walk to the Sliver Kris Lounge and The Private Room. 

About 15 minutes later, we're at the Silver Kris Lounge.
