This week’s Meal of the Week looks back on an excellent breakfast I had on Singapore Airlines flying in business class on an old 777-200 from Singapore to Rangoon.
It was March 2013 and I was tried. I had originally redeemed United miles to fly from Singapore to Dhaka to Bangkok to Rangoon, only 12.5K miles in economy class at the time.
But I had flown LAX-HNL-MAJ-KWA-KSA-PNI-TKK-GUM-NRT-SIN without stopping and had had enough flying. I just wanted to get Burma (to catch another extended trip back…the old RGN currency deal).
Anyway, I subbed out SIN-DAC-BKK-RGN for SIN-RGN, a ~3hr flight which just made more sense. I even treated myself to business class for an extra 5K miles (not available when I initially booked).
Breakfast was served on one tray, but quite hearty. It included a huge cheese omelet with a cooked tomato, mushrooms in cream sauce, a potato patty, and chicken sausage.
Also on the tray: a large warm croissant and bowl of fruit. To drink, I enjoyed a glass of fresh orange juice, still water, and a cappuccino.
Everything was excellent. Cappuccinos on Singapore, even on this old aircraft, are not powdered.
A hearty breakfast is always appreciated and Singapore did not disappoint on this short regional flight.
