- Conclusion: Last Minute Singapore F1 Weekend
We boarded as part of the first group, and even though we boarded via Door 1L, we passed Door 2L to find our seats, 21D and G. The mini-cabin on the Cathay Pacific A330 felt quieter, with a reasonable amount of privacy, aside from the occasional Premium Economy interlopers.
The seat is the same type as the one on the Cathay Pacific 777-300ER, however tighter, obviously because the A330 is a more narrow aircraft. None-the-less, it is still comfortable.
We were provided menus and pre-departure beverages as boarding finished up.
Soon we were taxiing to the runway, and then on our way to Singapore.
As we taxied, the crew turned on the In Flight Entertainment (IFE), unfortunately, as I quickly found out, my Cathay Pacific provided headphones were not 100% functional. I settled for one ear of sound until we got above 10,000 feet, and asked one of the crew for a new pair as they were walking about the aisle, they were back with a replacement before I could unplug the old ones.
Another 10 or so minutes went by before the crew appeared in the aisles with a 3 course breakfast, first fruit and bread:
Then cereal, yogurt, or muesli. Finally, the main course, which was either an egg dish, Chinese dim sum, or congee. My wife chose the egg dish, and I chose the Chinese dim sum:
After breakfast, which finished about 2 hours out of Singapore, I settled in for some more Game of Thrones and broke out my Microsoft Surface to do some writing.
The flight from Hong Kong to Singapore is only a 3 hour and 40 minute flight, give or take, so it’s not really enough time to get a good rest, but, you can certainly take in a movie, have a nice meal, and maybe even get some work done. That was the path I chose… with a short nap too, because, well, the seat is just that comfortable.
