Default B77W: SIN-HKG (SQ 862)

As promised, here's a short trip report of my trip back to HKG on board the new B77W (SQ 862). I wanted to get it upgraded to C, but was unsuccessful in doing so. So, I had to settle for the new Y.

Once on board the plane, I took two quick pictures of the Y cabin (while it's still empty!). The ambience was definitely better than the usual Y cabin, with fresh new seats, pillows and blankets (I think these are made by Givency suprisingly).





Here's also a pic of me sitting in the exit row seat:



and one with the leading stewardess:



The Y-seat was definitely comfortable, with new features and a much improved IFE. The screen was definitely wider and most importantly, it's AVOD. I enjoyed watching the Singaporean movie during the journey back to HKG.

Food wise, I forgot what was I served...but...it was okay.

On average, a pleasant journey on board the new plane in Y Hopefully, the next trip on B777W will be a long-haul C.

Hi YK, your orange Burberry long sleeve shirt definitely matched the new Y cabin very well and you look very handsome in it as well. The should let a decent handsome man like you to upgrade to the front cabin.
Look forward for more posts from you .

Nice report - thanks for sharing!

I like the warm and homey feel of the new cabin.

Yeah but the problem is that the colours kinda clashes with the blue batik uniforms of the FA. I suppose its a matter of getting used to it.

Nice report YK.

nice, although the new seats are more advance and comfortable. I still prefer the old purple, blue and pink seats. The cabin had more warmth. But this will do.

Add me to the list. IMO, I think if they had put the blue color in where the brick-colored seats are, it would have looked far better.

I think the colors (and carpet - sorry Savage25 ) looks okay.
But overall it just doesn't look 'SQ' anymore.
