Flight Review: Singapore Airlines – Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore

Flight Review: Singapore Airlines - Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore

Flight: Singapore Airlines SQ 183
From: Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) To: Singapore (SIN)

I flew with Singapore Airlines from Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore, which was the first of three flights to London.

I compared flight options with Momondo using the multi-city flight option. This wasn’t the cheapest option but I preferred to fly through Singapore with a combination of Star Alliance airlines.

My last Singapore Airlines flight was last year from Singapore to Saigon and I was happy to be starting the trip with an airline I enjoy flying.

As I was connecting in Singapore to a SWISS flight to Zurich and London, I wasn’t able to check in online. I managed to pick a seat at least, but for the other flights my seats were preselected and I couldn’t change them.

Online check-in summary

Singapore Airlines flies A330 or 777 aircraft to destinations around Asia. I like the A330 flight as economy is in a 2-4-2 configuration. Smaller destinations are served by SilkAir, which is Singapore Airlines brand for regional Asia flights.

Upon boarding there are free newspapers available from Singapore, Vietnam, and the US.

The pre-takeoff hot towel service is always a nice touch.

The scheduled flying time is 2 hours, though actual flying time is about 1h 40m.

Silverkris is the inflight magazine of Singapore Airlines.

Krisworld is the separate magazine for inflight entertainment. At such a short flight I didn’t bother to start watching a movie.

A late lunch/early dinner is served on this flight, and I got the chicken pasta option.

Overall this was another good flight with Singapore Airlines and I look forward to flying with them again.
