Video from my YouTube Channel 📺
my flight from Bangkok, I spent a few hours in the SilverKris Lounge in Terminal 2 and about 5:30pm, I left the lounge and slowly made my way to the boarding Gate which is Gate F54.
Boarding, Gate F54
Aircraft, Boeing 787-10 (9V-SCA)
According to the flight attendant, this aircraft was delivered to Singapore Airlines in March 28 so this aircraft is just 20 days old 😍
This is exactly the same business class seat I flew on from Bangkok so I'll just repost/add some pictures instead.
Around 6:35pm, hot towels were offered followed by newspapers and magazines. Three minutes later, the captain was on the PA to give us some flight info including our flight time of 40 minutes.

My Hoisin chicken croissant was very good 😋 The other choice was pastrami.
On this short flight between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, the meal service went really quickly. The cabin was actually not that full but I could imagine how hard it would be if it is. My meal was actually cleared about 3-4 minutes after serving it 😐
I was able to check the lavatory in economy class and as you'd expect, it was smaller and didn't offer lotion and has no "seat".
Landing in Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Around 7:10pm, the captain was back on the PA to inform us that we'd be landing at 7:35pm. five minutes later, he was back on the PA with the "Cabin Crew Seats for Landing". We landed at KLIA around 7:34pm and reached our gate seven minutes later.
If this aircraft would be normally used on this short hop between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, then these seats are definitely the best ones out there 😍 But of course, it won't 😉 The service was actually very friendly and I really commend the flight attendant for serving me the apple juice even it meant she had to go back to the galley for it. The lack of blanket and headphones is understandable since it would be too much for such a short flight. The meal service was one of the fastest I've experienced. Overall, it was an enjoyable flight to have flown on this familiarization flight on Singapore Airlines new Boeing 787-10 and I hope to be able to fly it on a longer flight in the future 😉
