Road Warrior Tested: Singapore Airlines Business Class
To begin, marinated prawn with seared tuna and mesclun was served along with a choice of bread. I selected the pan-fried chicken in green peppercorn sauce in advance for my main course, which wasn't on the printed menu, and it was the best chicken dish I've had on an airplane in my 30 years of flying.
Dessert consisted of a choice of either cherry or strawberry cheesecakeice cream, followed by a gourmet cheese plate and a selection of fresh fruit. Coffee or tea and pralines concluded the service.
I have flown with numerous international carriers in premium cabins and my dinner on this flight easily ranks near the top. It was on par or better than what I've experienced in first class on other airlines.
About an hour and a half before landing, a continental breakfast was served with selections of fruit and assorted breakfast rolls.
Summary: My Singapore Airlines business class experience exceeded all of my international first class flights with U.S. carriers. The seat, although beginning to look slightly worn from years in service, was exceptional in comfort and privacy. Service was friendly, efficient and what you would expect from a premier airline. Singapore Airlines didn't disappoint.
