After the lounge, we made our way to the gate. Singapore does security at the gate area, so that only took a minute, and we had about 10 minutes to kill in the waiting room. Then, they called business class to board.

No seat photos on this leg, as it’s the exact same setup as the previous flight, though we were able to snag bulkheads on this leg. This made the seat way more comfortable for sleeping, which is what I did for the majority of this flight! The day was wearing on me, so I only had one glass of champagne upon boarding, drinking water the rest of the flight.

The Menu


Crabmeat Salad. I’m not a big crab fan, so I just picked at this. I’m sure it was delicious.

I Booked the Cook again on this leg, getting another steak, because, why not? I thought the sauce on this one was delicious. Steak was decent as well.

This ice cream was SCRUMPTIOUS. Perfectly soft.

Then, I passed out, waking up just before landing in the Maldives!

We arrived at the bus stop for the Grand Hyatt with plenty of time to check-in and clear security. The walk to the check in for Singapore Airlines was quite long- the terminal building is soaring and gorgeous, but makes it easy to get your steps in for the day!

After acquiring our paper boarding passes, we hopped in a very long security line- it must have taken about 20 minutes to clear it and customs, though the line moved efficiently, in my opinion.

We then entered the terminal area, where we had to hop on board the airport’s train to take us to our gate area. Once off, we arrived at the Singapore Airlines’ dedicated lounge.

While small, it had all the essentials, including a delicious food spread with American favorites, some international ones, and even a few Korean items. Since it was L’s birthday, we decided mimosas were appropriate.

With only about 30 minutes to kill in the lounge, it was soon time to board our flight.

When I booked our flights, we were flying on a 777-200ER, but unfortunately, we were downgraded to an A330-300. No matter, service was what we’re after, but we’d have slightly less comfortable seats for this 5 1/2 hour flight.

We boarded quickly through a dedicated jetway.

Menus were waiting for us at our seats, while champagne was served.

To start, some fresh fruit.

Then, some muesli.

I went with the braised pork belly. L went with the eggs.

Then, dessert!

The balance of this flight was spent sleeping. For what it’s worth, I was comfortable. Before we knew it, we were landing in Shanghai.
