Singapore Airlines
SQ 232
Sydney (SYD) - Singapore (SIN)
Economy Class
Flight Time: 7H57M

Boarding the whale.

Would be seated at the small upper deck economy cabin. Passed through Business Class while boarding.

Economy cabin with the less new economy seats. It would be a totally full flight in economy today, which loads of passengers returning from their holiday break.

Seatback with earphones already pre-set.

First impression of the cleanliness of the aircraft was not too favourable, with a small meal casserole, muffin wrapper and used paper towel in the seat pocket..... This is not what I would have expected from SQ! Alerted a steward who cleared them with apologies. As the upper deck seats has additional stowage at the window, I had initially wanted to keep the blankets in there, but when opening, found some dried coffee/tea/dunno what are those stains in it.... (forgot to take a photo of it as I was totally grossed out) Yucks!! Aircraft cabin cleanliness is definitely lacking here!!

Scoot B789 arriving from SIN.

IFE interface, No touchscreen monitors on the older IFE system.

Hot towels and menus distributed, and we were pushed back slightly behind schedule.

X-Men AirAsiaX taxiing for departure ahead of us.

Starting the long taxi to Rwy16L.

Departure from Rwy16L.
