- Conclusion: Last Minute Singapore F1 Weekend
We boarded through door 2L, and turned right (I know, I don’t do this much), I crossed the galley and headed to 24G, my wife took the short cut to 24D.
The seats are very similar to American Airlines’ 777-300ER business seat. I jokingly describe this seat as akin to sliding into an X-Wing Fighter cockpit (at least it certainly looks similar). But the seat overall is pretty comfortable in the right positions, but while there are some sweetspots, there are also some uh, sour spots, especially for side sleepers.
Soon enough, we were offered pre-departure beverages.We pushed back reasonably on time, and after a slight delay due to incoming flights, we were in the air.
Shortly after we made it to 10,000 feet, the flight attendants came through the cabin delivering amenity kits.
Soon after that, Cris, the cabin manager, stopped by to let us know that they loaded the wrong menus, but that we’d have choices displayed on the trolley in just a few short moments. The choices as I recall, was a light meal of a salad and asparagus soup, or beef, or a fish dish.
After eating, and finishing up watching Tomorrowland, I got a good 5+ sleep, then woke up to have a snack of noodles, with a mimosa and some Hong Kong Milk Tea.
I finished the flight off with a fruit dish, and a chicken noodle dish, that I can’t recall the name of.
In Flight Entertainment (IFE)
As I mentioned earlier in the report, I had the chance to watch a number of movies, as well as part of an episode of the Game of Thrones. I found the provided headphones which, are Cathay Pacific Specials (since I cannot determine the manufacturer) were sufficient but not amazing. As far as the movies:
- Tomorrowland – well worth the watch.
- Mad Max – Kind’ve a blast from the past, good if you its your thing, or, if you can’t find something better to watch.
- Pitch Perfect 2 – A feel good movie with great melodies. Even if you’re not interested in the story, its certainly a nice movie to close your eyes to.
As far as Game of Thrones, watching a few episodes, it became quite apparent that I’ve missed many episodes, and as a result, really only followed about half of the storylines.
Overall, the flight was quite refreshing, having not made a long haul flight for more than two months. I found the crew to be wonderfully attentive, and overall, very good.
