GROUNDHOG DAY - NORTHEAST

Another day another SIN-CGK-SIN turnaround. This time I'm on the 777-300. The flight is so short I don't bother with the IFE so can't say if it was avod or non-avod.

The flight over was uneventful, with just a few bumps, apart from take off (yup to the north again) and on final approach Jakarta had a change of runway so we veered right and headed across the Sundra Strait to the tip of Sumatra before coming back to land from the inland direction. This means a late arrival and a longer than usual taxi. Unlike the A345 turnaround which has long enough on the ground to make up any lost time, the 777 turnaround is just over the bare minimum and so we also depart slightly late. Still, being not the first or last flights of the day they are lightly loaded and boarding is quick. In fact by the time the boarding call was made in the lounge they had already started boarding and completed not long after we made it onboard.

No surprise to me, but once again SIN runway has changed and land from the north followed by long taxi the long way around to gate E28. Sheesh! Why has SQ annoyed SIN ATC so much?

NORTHEAST continued

I have a couple of hours before the next flight so I freshen up with a good shower, imbibe some dom and catch up on email and a bit more of this trip report. The time passes quickly.

I am flying up to Tokyo (NRT) and back on SQ via Bangkok (BKK) - on separate flights SIN-BKK and BKK-NRT vv of course to maximise mile and PPS earning and simultaneously minimise fare (win-win). The downside is no skysuites except on the sole daily 747 flight between SIN-BKK. However even the "old" F seats are mighty comfy and the SQ service on the 777-200 is just as good as on the 747-400.

For the first time this trip we leave SIN from a close gate and take off in the direction we're headed. The flight to Bangkok is short and sweet at about 2 hours, but unlike Jakarta is just long enough to watch a movie and the meal is also a fuller meal service. The cabin is quite empty so we have plenty of room to stretch out.

We arrive on schedule to Bangkok where we see a plethora of european and asian airlines lined up at the gates - LH, BA, LX, AY, AF, SK, CX, TG (duh!), BR, NH, JL, plus a lot of local and LCCs etc etc. SQ seems to switch between piers 4 & 5, and this flight had pier 5 so a short taxi past the golf course and domestic terminal to our gate. It is a short walk to the transit escalator, up to departures level and back towards pier 5 to the nice TG F lounge.

IMHO this lounge is the best of the many on offer at BKK, and for business class the 2-story TG lounge by pier 3 is the best but perhaps also the QF Qantas Club. There are many other lounges at BKK, it still amazes me how many there are in *A alone - UA, LH, SQ, TG (many), SK.

I catch up on more email and FT and then notice it is already past boarding time. Usually the lounge attendants inform the F pax individually about boarding but not this time (or perhaps they were just a bit slow?). When I got the boarding passes, and indeed on arriving into BKK, no gate had yet been assigned for the onward flight. So I turned left out of the lounge towards the main part of the terminal to check the departure screens for piers 4 & 5. Okay it is pier 4. A short queue at security. Several of the pax in front of me appeared to be travelling on a LCC based on the various fast food being carried, including soft drink that was in danger of being spilled over themselves or worse yet the screeners as they struggled to hold the food & drink while positioning carry-ons on the machine, emptying pockets etc. Once through and at the gate, I notice boarding is well underway. A short pause while they confirm on the computer I am indeed a transit passenger, and I board to my seat. The flight is moderately full, mostly through passengers from Singapore as the flight indeed is SIN-BKK-NRT. This presumably explains the use of lesser aircraft than the non-stops which are 747-400.

We get given the amenities - slippers (only used by SQ on the Japan routes AFAIK) and socks, amenity kit (more on this in a minute), and pajamas. The amenity kit has changed since I last flew SQ F longhaul (or mediumhaul overnight). It is no longer a square bag but not rounded like a pencil case. The contents have also changed. The cologne is no longer Bulgari blue but a different scent, smaller and round shaped. Sorry I dont have it on me right now to give the name - I'll post it later. The cooling eye mask is also gone - I dont recall ever seeing someone use this so I'm not surprised. What I am surprised about, though, is the large comfy fabric eye mask is also gone, or perhaps they forgot to hand it out/ran out?

Being yet another shortish late overnight flight I wasnt too much interested in food or movies, but moreso on some sleep. However I did stay up more than I intended - oh well plenty more flights to catch up on sleep later.

We had an impressively strong tail wind, with a flight time just a shade under 5 hours! We approached a cloudy and wet Tokyo. On approach there was a thick blanket of cloud and there just ahead and below us was the tailfin of another aircraft slicing through the cloudtop into the clear air above. It reminded me of a dolphin fin breaking the surface of the sea, the undulations in the cloud top making the tailfin reappear and disappear and showing varying proportions of it, analogous to the dolphin's motion in the sea or perhaps a gentle seaswell.

We landed in the misty rain and had the longest possible taxi at NRT - some 30 minutes back down the far runway's taxiway, past all of terminal 2, then around the cross, past all of terminal 1 and to the end gate (gate 11) of terminal 1. Phew - lucky I had a good book to read!

With the strong tailwind we had arrived ahead of the nonstop SQ flight from SIN, when usually that flight arrives much earlier.

Hi clifford

I'm visiting several of the same places as you in May or June. It's possible we cross paths again.

Hi Kiwi,

Forgot to mention that I'll also be in BKK on 16-18 May.

Let me know the dates when you'll be in the same places as me, and maybe we can get together for a Dom or two (or whatever).

SOUTH

Having finally made the gate we deplane and I head to transfers. Since they were unable to issue onward boarding passes in SIN for some obscure technical reason (they normally would be issued no problem), I had to show my itinerary to security. 5 seconds later I'm heading down the escalator to a deserted departure level. Due to the overnight curfew and lack of super early flights the terminal doesn't start waking up until about 8am.

I do my usual NRT thing by walking all the way to the far end and back a couple of times - these laps take much longer than SEA(!). While doing so I notice someone else is also doing a turnaround on SQ and trying in vain to find when the transfer desk opens. I let him know it wont be until after 8am. After another lap of the terminal - it is now time for the lounge to open.

So I head up to the Silver Kris Lounge. I don't have a boarding pass to show, but they look up my card number and see my onward flights - we'll sort these out for you Kiwi Flyer, why don't you go into the lounge on the right? Thanks!

I log on to check some emails - the connection seems to have gotten faster since I was last here a couple of months ago. I also have some Fauchon ice cream - sadly no green tea flavour for quite some time. In a couple of months (or less) the SKL is going. The *A airlines (except Air New Zealand due to its codeshare with Japan Airlines) are relocating to a common area of the terminal and there will be a new large *A lounge (UA RCC will stay). So this will probably be my last visit.

The lounge is fairly empty - no more than half a dozen people, and so I am sure the load on the flight back will be light. Boarding is called quite late and takes no time at all. Onboard I see I'm the only one in F, and even business class only has a few pax. The crew seem to have an extra bounce in their step, knowing this will be an easy flight for them.

We push back slightly early. Fortunately the runway has changed so we don't have a monster taxi again. We had very strong headwinds back to Bangkok, at times our groundspeed was only 600kmh, with a long flight time (for this route) of 8 hours. Despite this there was no significant turbulence. It did seem to go on forever, or perhaps that was my ever increasing tiredness. At least I was enjoying the pampering in F rather than cramped in Y. I decided to stretch out the meal since there was no need to rush - I made it last for several hours by taking a break between each course.

Even though the schedule does allow for the prevailing head winds on this route, naturally we arrive very late into Bangkok.

SOUTH continued

Due to the late arrival, my comfortable connection became a short one, indeed the aircraft for the onward flight was already parked up at the gate. However I just had enough time for a quick visit to the lounge for a shower to freshen up (note the NRT SKL has no shower). Same drill as before, but this time I rush rather than dawdle. Make it to the next gate as they are boarding - perfect timing.

I managed to schedule in the one SQ daily 747 service between SIN and BKK, so a sky suite for this short flight. After the excesses of the previous flight I just dozed as best I could.

Back in Singapore a couple of hours later and it was back to the lounge to pick up my last boarding pass. Then hop online and see that ciotog was in the Raffles side so I invite him to join me on the First side. By coincidence we were on the same flight down to Auckland.

We head to the gate slightly early. For a nice change I dont set off the WTMD - the SIN ones are usually set too sensitive and even something as minor as a small metal badge on my passport cover is enough to set them off. This one must be set to lesser sensitivity. They used to do passport check at the entrance to the gate lounge, but this lead to queues snaking down the corridor. So in the past several months they moved the passport check to inside the gate lounge between screening and the boarding pass read/gate agent desk. However they are much slower at checking than the other parts of the process, and so a melee forms that fills the limited available space between WTMD and the passport checkers. I think the process needs changing again as it is not working well.

Anyway, by the time clear that boarding is already well progressed and onto the second batch of economy pax. This is unusual for the SQ flights to NZ since boarding usually starts quite late due to the requirements to forward passenger details to NZ immigration. The flight is full and they are eager to get away on time.

Flight time down to Auckland is longer than usual thanks to an unusual routing. We head more easterly than normal to avoid Java and the volcano that is threatening to erupt, then turn sharply south to cross the Australian coast over the Kimberleys, to avoid severe cyclone Monica (winds up to 360kmh) which is just to the east of Darwin. We cross the eastern coast by Sydney, further south than usual.

As I'm feeling more than a little tired I sleep as much as I can on the flight, and wake just as we approach New Zealand. Auckland is having thundery showers, so the low circle over the city to land from the east is quite bumpy. We land quite late but surprisingly immigration queues are small. The baggage claim area however is busy with the various asian flights having arrived in the past hour, and so I'm glad to scoot straight past. Customs and agriculture x-rays have a small queue at each but I'm through reasonably fast - a plane to exit time of 15 minutes.

Hi Kiwi,

Forgot to mention that I'll also be in BKK on 16-18 May.

Let me know the dates when you'll be in the same places as me, and maybe we can get together for a Dom or two (or whatever).

Hi Clifford

If possible could you please resend your PM? I think I lost it when deleting some to get below mailbox limit earlier.
