From where to where?
Travel Singapore to Auckland
AIR NEW ZEALAND
FLIGHT: NZ281 - Air New Zealand
DEPARTURE: 8.50 am on time
THE PLANE: 787 Dreamliner- Air New Zealand
Travel time about 10 hours
55C- Aisle SEAT in the middle of the back economy section. Seating configuration is 3,3,3.
The flight was very full but I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me and this gave me a reasonable amount of leg room and luckily for me, the passenger in front never reclined his seat back. All in all, for economy, it was comfortable.
FOOD: We were served breakfast not long after leaving Singapore with a standard western type breakfast and an Asian noodle option. Mid way through the flight we were offered ice creams and a dinner was served a couple of hours before arriving in Auckland.
I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with the entertainment selection. On long haul flights I look forward to catching up with the latest release movies, but the ones on offer didn't appeal to me.
My favourite airline game, Tetris, that I like to play to make time go fast was not available and I was also disappointed in the music selection. I guess I was making the comparison with my travel last long haul flight which was on Qatar Air and had a great selection.
Excellent as usual. Nothing was too much bother.
Relatively expensive compared to other options available, but the fact that it was a non stop, fully serviced day flight was a deal breaker for me after flying up to Singapore using budget airlines Air Asia and Scoot Air.
$1166.00 including 2 x 23 kg bags
WOULD I FLY IT AGAIN?
Yes definitely. Great service, a day flight, comfortable, non-stop, plenty of baggage allowance.
