What has happened to SKM? Been out of service for more than 3 months...very unusual.

SKW brings the fleet of new planes to 3 which in turn will bring the new products on a daily basis to LHR on 322/317 flight pair and HKG on 856/861 flight pair from May.

Today's Straits Times have a report on passengers complaints/feedback on the new Suites on the brand new A380s. Not sure if SIA will take immediate steps to review this and make changes before it decide to whether to retrofit its current A380s.

I get the impression that Singapore media love SQ bashing as much as Australian media loves QF bashing. Every tiny fault they can find with SQ becomes some major beat up. That's just an outsider's perspective anyway...

Straits Times has just a single aviation correspondent. And she needs to help boost readership.

On the contrary, the local mainstream media is more pro-SIA than anything else. Of course when SIA introduce somewhat budget carriers' tactics of additional payment for seat selection or additional charges for credit card purchases etc, then many people will complain.

The mainstream media is more accurately described as a minute-taker for the AGMs and EGMs of Singapore Inc. Of course you will still have people like Warren alleging that it does them no justice to be pro-anything government connected.

Ahh, no I had never read that- it's dated at a time when work consumed my life momentarily! Yes, not well crafted, but had I read that previously I would have seen there is some balance out there. Thanks for linking!
