Singapore: An Update

Just a little update. I am now in Singapore, awaiting my connecting flight to somewhere exotic, way up north. I haven’t really had a proper rest since the past three weeks so as you can expect I am quite exceptionally tired. Given a bed, or somewhere flat and soft, I would in an instance fall into lifelessness.

I am however excited about my flight tonight. I will be flying on an Airbus 350-900 (XWB)- my favourite aircraft for a while until I flew aboard KLM’s Boeing 787-9 i.e. the Dreamliner, from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Amsterdam (AMS). I don’t study aircraft specifications in my line of work per se but from my superficial knowledge of aircraft, I thought there aren’t many out there who can top the A350s. But boy was I wrong! From a consumer’s standpoint I thought the B787-9 was a magnificent piece of machine! For one, the engines were quieter; the cabin felt substantially more spacious and the pièce de résistance for me were the shutterless windows! You need only dim the windows opaque by clicking the buttons up/down to keep the lights out. Brilliant! Until of course one of the wires snaps and you’re left with a blank window-cum-wall.

I will write more about my Singapore Changi rendez-vous as well as my trip up north in my next posts. I hope you’ve been well 🙂
