This post is for people who like looking at hazy pictures taken through finely scratched and slightly distorted aeroplane windows at around 30,000 feet. 🙂
It’s also for people who enjoy looking at clouds and land formations, and locating said formations on maps. (I’m not very good at this and have identified only two items so far.)
SYD-SIN, via FlyScoot TZ1, 03 February 2013. Departure approx. 1505hrs (delayed by an hour). Business class window seat, right side.
If you want to fly cheap and in comfort, this is a good choice. A ScootBiz ticket bought at the right time costs about $100 more than an economy seat on a Singapore Airlines A380. And there’s plenty of legroom and a nice leather seat that is not too narrow. But beware! A very large neighbour can still overflow into your seat. ScootBiz seat configuration is 2-4-2.
This next bit is a reminder to myself, in case I have to make another trip in the near to mid-term:
- This airline encourages you to bring your own food and drink, because everything is chargeable. On the SIN-SYD trip I will ensure that I have lots of Old Chang Kee curry puffs, a large guava (Psidium guajava) and maybe a few jambus (Syzygium samarangense). Warning: stomach may explode from overeating.
- Want a drink? In Sydney, buy one from a vending machine after clearing Security. In Singapore: bring an empty bottle and fill it from the water cooler in the departure lounge, after clearing security.
- Pick a right-side seat on the SYD-SIN leg, and a left-side seat on the SIN-SYD leg.
And now, on with the show. As always, click on photo to enbiggen.
