    SQ Premium Economy Food & Service

    Not a rant but wanted to share my disappointment. I'm quite a fan of the SQ product and fly them as much as possible. However, my recent flight SIN - BNE was a PE flight that landed in BNE at approx 7AM. Once boarded we had no bottled water (We did on the way out) and the dinner served was...
