Default SIN-FRA SQ 26

Q1: We are flying in suites. I am being offered two book the cook options under Japanese: "Japanese Meal" and "Kyo Kaiseki." What's the difference?

Q2: Is there still security re-screening at FRA for passengers going on to JFK? The January 2018 Singapore-EU one stop security agreement should have eliminated re-screening at FRA but I do not know if that has been enhanced yet.

A few months ago the re-screening was gone at FRA. Flying SQ26 again in a few days so I'm hoping it hasn't been reinstated!

I wouldnít recommend the Japanese or Kyo Kaiseki meals unless your flight departs Japan. Itís always been disappointing for me outside of Japan including on SQ26.

I took SQ26 from JFK to SIN recently technically no security re screen in FRA but you must be ultra careful once you disembark from the plane to take the stairs down to the departure gates (esp biz passengers on upper deck) if you take the steps out the doors they will be very strict and ask you to re screen.

But then in all honesty if you do make that mistake it just another 5 min annoyance just walk straight thru to security screening and then take the stairs down don’t waste time trying to argue with the security especially after recent security lapse in FRA

Never argue with German security personnel!

I flew JFK-FRA-SIN return twice last year and there was security screening only when flying to the U.S., so at FRA after arriving from SIN continuing to JFK. There was no screening after JFK-FRA before continuing to SIN.

Just got off SQ 26 at JFK and the security screening at FRA is not required, same as two months ago.

Ahh ok. I would appreciate that, except that my next flight from NYC is the non-stop via EWR so I don't know when I'll fly JFK-FRA-SIN again.
