Doing a PVG-SIN return in F in May. Both flights leave after midnight. I can't find any menus or trip reports for these flight times. Will these be "sleeper service" flights as well?

Okay, so I'm still unclear as to what sleeper service entails in F outside of a single meal service. Is there a trip report or a menu of a sleeper service on a similar route (5-6 hours) that I can look at for comparison? I can't find a menu in the list of past SQ F menus posted on flyertalk and all trip reports that I have found for the PVG route (or even the PEK route) are not red-eyes.

I know now not to expect the full service of cavier and/or satay on my flights or even a second meal service but I am trying to figure out if there will be much else besides the main course.

the 0045 SIN-SYD only offers the main course, and the bread basket. which, even at 0045, will include breakfast pastries. weird.

Hi Everyone,
Is F service on SQ 1 SFO (1am) -> HKG (6AM) a "sleeper service"? I will fly on this route in 3 weeks, and really looking forward to it? LOL , meaning no Caviar / Lobster Thermindor / Dom and Krug?

Quite recent trip report:

http://hungryforpoints.boardingarea....-to-hong-kong/

SQ offers Dom and Krug on all F flights (only exception is the 45 minute flight from Jakarta Singapore that has no Krug) and they won't run out of it.

The Supper Service out of SFO to HKG doesn't offer a full caviar appetizer.

Make sure you order your Lobster via Book-the-Cook - and enjoy.

In short: Krug/Dom/Lobster: yes! Caviar: no!

I have been on flights when they run out of one or both champagnes in F. Most recently last month. Although in that case understandable due to several hours delay following aborted takeoff in which passengers remained onboard (with drinks flowing freely while waiting for the problem to be fixed).

Can you name the flight number and date where SQ ran out of both champagnes?

You sound like an SQ police officer.

Sorry the flight running out of both Dom & Krug was too long ago to remember exact flight & date.

The flight last month with aborted takeoff ran out of Krug very early. I don't know if they also ran out of Dom as I didn't ask for champagne later in the flight.

How's the sleeper service for Suites on SQ218 like? As we are connecting to LHR, we are planning to stay awake as much as possible and sleep on the SIN-LHR leg.

Sleeper service is not as restricted as it has been suggested. In the attached example from sleeper flight SQ218 MEL-SIN in business class, you can clearly see, that one can have either supper, or breakfast, and importantly both if one wishes… I flew it on 25 May and actually did have small supper and then larger breakfast.
