Big Bird!

Yippee its holiday time and my wife and I went off to Singapore for a two week holiday visiting family. We booked this in May. Originally, we wanted to book it for the Singapore F1 Grand Prix held in September. Unfortunately getting a flight when we wanted was difficult as they were more or less fully booked. We settled for flying out two weeks  before and returning on the day of the F1 qualifying. We managed to get tickets for the Friday practice race, and then watched the race on the TV at home! The tickets cost £20 for walk-about tickets – a bargain!

We booked the flights using Singapore Airlines and arranged then to fly on the new Airbus A380, previously seen at the Farnborough Air Show last year. Here it is at Heathrow waiting to go. (Sorry it was early in the morning and a dull dull day!). On the way out we flew on the bottom deck and had a window seat more or less over the wing. On the way back we managed to get on the top deck at the rear of the plane.  Although the flights were long (numb bum!) at 13 hours out and nearly 14 hours back the flight and service were excellent and we’d definitely fly with Singapore Airlines again. (Better seating and video than the Virgin flight we took to New York earlier this year.
