    Hi folks i booked this trip with miles via american express a while back and flew it about 3 months ago.Before you read this i also warn you i am not a native English speaker . As it was my first time in first class i was quite excited . This ticket can cost a whopping $8000 for a one way ! isn’t that crazy now? well i managed to fly it for free as that is what we do at howtofreetravel after all right? Please forgive the image quality i promise i will buy a professional camera as soon as i get back to the states! Some people were explaining I didn’t explain how I got this flight well I signed up for one amex platinum got a signup bonuses of 50k miles + some spend I had transferred 58000 thousand miles to Kris Flyer and booked a first class ticket . I did have to pay 200 something dollars for the ticket.

    Our flight starts with some nice Dom Perignon ( i forgot what year) i also tried Krug but i didn’t like it go figure. I realized i am not a champagne man after this flight because i just was not impressed … I would be much more comfy with some vodka coke or something of that sort or Woodford for you ham sandwiches (you know who you are ).

    Next up is the cappuccino but this is no normal cappuccino you see this monstrosity is created by the use of Blue Mountain beans which cost a whopping $120 dollars a pound ! Singapore goes all the way with the coffee and yes it was delicious .

    Not sure if you can notice but the screen was huge! really a pleasure here . I am not completely sure but i think there must have been over 1500 movies/tv shows. I guess the only thing missing in my experience was a Playstation 4 but , i still enjoyed the experience. A common problem for me when i fly airlines such as delta or especially Airfrance and Alitalia is i run out of movies to watch because i already watched everything but this is hardly a problem with Singapore!

    Time for the food service wow i think this garlic bread must have been the best garlic bread i have ever tried. I really can’t believe i am bothering to review a garlic bread but it was just amazing.

    Some nice lobster for the appetizer pretty tasty yum

    My first time trying black caviar! i loved it’s so tasty . I think i might be ruined for life after eating that ! sadly i was pretty full so i didn’t ask for more food ( i already stuffed my self in the virgin Atlantic lounge). From what i understand Singapore is usually very generous in how much caviar you can get so go for it if you can.

    This is what i was eating! lobster on a plane! it was my first time and it was quite Delicious i must say . I booked this via Singapore’s book by the chef where you can pre order what you want to eat on the plane ( and you can do it online too).

    This is dessert it was just ok honestly but still not too bad for something you can get on the air it appears to be some kind of Panna cotta .

    Maybe Singapore is the only place i managed to sleep on a plane better then i sleep in my own bed… The only problem was how short the flight was so i only slept 4 hours.

    Got me some cheese as snack you can’t notice see it but the flight attendant actually cuts this from huge blocks of cheese which is very cool.
