To the point Here is our photo report of the flight on Singapore Airlines from Singapore to Hô Chi Minh in Business Class with aeroplan and visit of the SilverKris Lounge!

In the continuation of my trip to Asia thanks to Aeroplan miles, we meet for a short-haul flight with Singapore Airlines.

After a pleasant stay in the city-state where we enjoyed the cosmopolitan culinary culture, we leave for Ho Chi Minh City. This is a stopover on an Aeroplan award ticket that allows up to two.

We arrive after about twenty minutes in front of the doors dedicated to the front classes.

dedicated Business and First Class gates for Singapore Airlines at Changi Airport

A counter is reserved for the business class, few people at that time, so we are quickly taken care of.

After a long passage at the passport control, we follow the indications to reach the lounge.

Changi Airport is known for its decoration, especially its carpets. It may be a bit busy but it’s better than some terminals with a very sterile environment.

The SilverKris Show

The lounge is located on the second floor of the terminal but it is blind, too bad because I would have liked to spot the aircraft with companies that I rarely see in North America.

In the restaurant area, there are common high tables with stools.

The food offer is really correct: good and diversified.

the offer of drinks is also satisfactory

The local and some international press are present. I read an article about a Saudi diplomatic representative accused of molesting a female employee in a hotel, does this remind you of anything?

The living room is classic in its design but a bit old-fashioned, the armchairs have seen better days.

I take the opportunity to have something to eat. The problem with doing reviews like this is that it feels like you are always eating or drinking.

It’s time to head for the gate. Changi Airport is an attraction in itself. I hope to come back and enjoy it more.

Our aircraft, an Airbus A330-300, is the equivalent of the Airbus A320 used in Europe for short and medium-haul flights. We arrive as often in Asia by a closed boarding room where we pass the security control.

The boarding begins and the carpeting continues even in the pier.

The interior is a bit old, but it is light years ahead of the business class in Europe and even in North America.

A glass of champagne is served before takeoff. Flight attendants are already very present.

The flight lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes but a dinner is served with starter, main course and dessert.

It’s time to leave. We take off directly towards the West then towards the North in direction of Vietnam.

The “snack” is served, it’s still a lot of food!

It’s time to eat and take a nap and we approach our destination. The arrival will be a little tumultuous because in the middle of a thunderstorm at the beginning of the evening in these regions with tropical climate. In any case, it makes beautiful clouds.

Bottom line

I have already done some regional flights in Asia with Asiana and Thai Airways. The trend is confirmed: pleasant flights on large aircraft with long-haul service and Singapore Airlines did not disappoint.
