Aren't services like SIN-PER and SIN-ICN single meal services irrespective of time of day? Different to SIN-MEL/SYD/BNE/NRT which are mainly two meal service flights.

I may be wrong, but when when I flew back on the 2.10pm flight from PER-SIN in J, I was served lunch and then a small refreshment prior to landing. But getting old and this flight was 2 months ago, so my memory may have faded. Apologies if I am wrong.

On another note, when I flew J on CGK-PER-CGK on GA, the meal was absolutely inedible, so grateful to be able to fly SQ C, even if it means having a stop in SIN

can we have this renamed to sleeper service instead of supper service?

in the past supper just meant no satay or caviar rather than 1 main plate only.

SQ does call it sleeper service.

For example see SQ618 SIN-KIX F menu (found in the FT all airline menu thread).

yeah so i'm suggesting you rename the bit in the sticky to sleeper instead of supper.

Sorry I didn't realize you were referring to the wikipost. By the way, anyone with more than 90 posts/90 days on FT can edit a wikipost.

SQ 225 - used to be either a meal after take off, or breakfast on arrival.

There are lots of menus for SIN-AKL and AKL-SIN flights in F in the FT all airline menu collection.

I'm unsure which flight you refer to because SQ 286 is AKL-SIN, not SIN-AKL.

SQ 286 is AKL-SIN and has lunch and light dinner meal services.
SQ 285 is SIN-AKL and has dinner and breakfast meal services.

Plus snacks available in both directions.

Thanks, I did indeed mean 285 SIN-AKL. I'll check the menus out.

Edit: no more caviar I see in the Jan 2016 menu... not that I'm flying for the caviar, but disappointing nonetheless.

I flew SQ285 on 15 Jan 2016. Caviar was on the menu as part of an appetiser. (Refer Post 68 in this thread)

I'm flying J SIN-MEL on SQ227 in about a month's time (on the 77W), and I've not seen any reference on this thread to it being reduced service - unlike the 237.

But when I go to select meals, BTC is only available for dinner; for breakfast, it just says "Continental Breakfast".

So am I right to understand that there is a full dinner service on the flight, but then breakfast will be minimal because it's such an early arrival in MEL?

Thanks!

Yes I took SQ227 in March, if I remember correctly. It was just a choice of pastries and fruits for breakfast. Dinner was full but many passengers chose to go to sleep immediately. I chose to save my dinner entree for breakfast as I like to have a heavy breakfast, the crew obliged.

2 meals on sleeper service

Just saw a sleeper service menu stating "for a longer stretch of undisturbed rest, we are pleased to offer you meal service options specially timed to suit your preferences. Whether you would like your meal to be served soon after take-off, or two hours before arrival, or both - simply inform our crew and leave the rest to our care."

Is it truly possible to have two meals during a sleeper service flight?

If you don't care about sleep and don't plan on sleeping, then yes, you can pretty much eat and drink throughout the flight.

If you mean "Is it possible to eat two meals and still get a decent night's sleep", the answer is obviously no.
