Good morning/afternoon/evening from Tokyo Narita, as I’m currently enroute from Los Angeles to Singapore in business class on a Singapore Airlines 777-300ER. While I almost exclusively redeem my miles for international first class (because I find it to be the best value), Singapore Airlines is an exception. I would argue their business class product is better than the first class products of about 80% of the airlines out there. Singapore, you’re in a league of your own, and I look forward to spending the next seven hours (sleeping) with you all the way to Singapore… too bad my mileage redemption on them was just a fluke.
Of course a full trip report is on the way upon the completion of my trip, though I’ll share one quick story. I met a fellow business class passenger at check-in, and we spent most of the time in the lounge talking. He had never flown Singapore Airlines before, and instead usually flies Korean Air, and was telling me how he thinks they’re one of the best airlines in the world. 10 minutes after boarding starts he comes up to me and says “holy $*&%, this is even better than you said it was… I’m never flying Korean Air again.”
And indeed Singapore Airlines is just about the best out there in-flight. Any airline that caters a fresh box of Krispy Kreme donuts as business class snacks deserves top marks in my book. 😉
