    When I was at the other board, it got me interested in First Flight. It led me to take my First Flight for the first time on the First Ultra Long Haul A345 SIN-LAX. Since then, I had been on several first flight, whenever I had a chance and resources to do it. In those occasions, the experience was always fun and happy. To keep the memory alive, I am starting this thread dedicated to the gifts that we got when taking the first flight.

    Please share pictures of the gifts from the first flight if you happened to be on one. Sometimes when traveling in different class, the gift might be different.

    Here is the gift from taking the first flight to Tokyo-Haneda.

    SQ 634 SIN - HND 31 OCT 2010 Y-class

    I was on the inaugural SQ35 ORD-AMS-SIN on August 2, 2001. Got the same harmonica as the one in Jubilee777 post plus a bottle of champagne (Duval Leroy) as I was in J, and also a paper weight from SIA Chicago office and chocolates from Schiphol airport.

    Great flight onboard 9V-SVB, brand new plane, brand new Ultimo Plus seat, fabulous lady IFS, couldn't ask for anything better. Sadly that flight is no more.

    I just realized now that I've never opened the box for this mini-A380 model. Hopefully it worth something in the future. :D

    There were booklets or mini-book about A Class Beyond First and A380. But these were available long before this LHR flight.

    Anyone has more pictures to complete this flight? Or another First Flight? :)

    SQ 38 SIN - LAX 3 FEB 2004 A345 Leadership

    This was my FIRST First Flight on any airlines. The first ultra long haul flight nonstop from Singapore to Los Angeles. It was the longest flight time breaking the SFO-HKG flight. I was the only one who did return on the same aircraft as SQ37 first flight nonstop Los Angeles to Singapore. SQ had a big celebration at the departure gate TBIT. It was an honor to cut the cake with a flyer from San Francisco who was the first person to check in and it was his birthday as well. A few second appearance at BBC FastTrack program later on that week. :)

    I think I got this before A380 was in service. But then I got another one from one of my A380 flight.

    Young man, I thought you are hoping to be on the last service of SQ 744. :D

    Either way, it works.. :p

    That way I don't have to actually pay specifically for 388 service for the same price as F on the 744.. :D

    I know this one is not SQ, but it is my favorite memento from a first flight. LH gave those of us in F a dozen of these, and considerable quantity onboard also, but the onboard ones were full of beer :) I have some SQ ones also, but they aren't as nice as the ones you're showing in this thread.

    We should form a MP group to do such 1st flights on SQ (maybe other airlines too) to get some of these prized collectibles!

    Do you know what will be the first sector to use 787? Maybe they test it out on SIN-CGK first?

    I've never taken any SQ inaugural flights whether it be a first flight for a route or aircraft or both. Even sadder, my days of "heavy" SQ flying volume are over. :( Managed only four sectors with them last year and have yet to fly with them thus far this year. Though I have two flights with them in the next 2-3 days.
