Singapore’s flag carrier, Singapore Airlines, was recently named “World’s Best Airline 2023” by Skytrax. However, this was amidst criticism of its cutbacks in service and such as their plan to roll out paper packaging for its meal services across its long-haul network. However, it seems that all that has passed. The airline recently made a record profit earlier in the year, and even made surprising improvements to its service such as free Wi-FI (from July 2023) and bringing back a side dish on long-haul flights.
With this in mind, where else should we examine Singapore Airlines’ flurry of improvements and a change of heart on the meal service than with one of their longest routes? Join me as I take a 16 hour direct flight from Vancouver to Singapore on a route that will soon be history. Will it be a good flight with the golden bird? Let’s find out!
NOTE* Singapore Airlines will no longer operate the Vancouver-Singapore sector from late September 2023, and there will be a six month gap before their Star Alliance partner Air Canada launches a service from Vancouver to Singapore in April 2024. Nevertheless, I hope this video provides you will sufficient information on what you can expect on a transpacific flight with Singapore’s flag carrier.
