leaving for heathrow this evening on 7.5.2015. ^^
travelling by SQ economy as the economy fare is only S$300 more than the taxes & fees i have to pay if i redeem business class. doesn’t make sense? keep my miles for later when no cheap economy. 🙂
economy was full on the seat map at time of booking & afterwards (though it turned out not to be so when i boarded, wonder why???). there were hardly any seats left so i had to pay S$84 for a “preferred” seat. it’s A380 & i managed to get the best seat 48D, with 1 empty space (no seat) in front!
went to the asia treasure lounge at T3.
took the usual berries smoothie, called energiser i think. 🙂
in the morning they served local food.
the fried carrot cake was excellent very tasty, flavourful, the crispy chilli too. i ordered 1/2 portion.
& the mee rebus was so nice!^^
3 fresh plump sweet prawns, lovely gravy & nice fried tofu cubes, shallots & green chilli. 🙂
i am one of those who don’t complain about airline food. had a decent poached egg with chicken sausage breakfast. ok, took sausage & 1/2egg, and a good chicken biryani lunch. took 1/2 the rice.
it was a long flight, 13hrs 30mins, touched down & at the gate at heathrow T2 3.40pm. son booked a cab for me 45mins after arrival, which was very good timing. i had 1 piece of check-in luggage & was out at arrival hall 4.20pm.
the journey to london was tedious, took a full 1.5hrs to the apartment near king’s cross. cab went via hyde park, huge jam, divert through piccadilly & just as jam all the way. wonders? today 7.5.2015 UK election day, thought traffic would be lighter.
