Default Definition of "night" flight (for F amenity kit)

A question about how SQ categorises its flights...

HKG-SIN is 3h40m so obviously day flights are not eligible for the F amenity kit / PJs. However, what about the flights that depart later in the evening?

SQ website stipulates that amenity kits are given out on day flights of 7 hours and more, and night flights of 3h30m or more. Do they mean a flight that passes the midnight mark, or do they mean flights that depart after a certain time?

PS. Also, on SQ873 HKG-SIN (2015 -> 2315), what meal is served? Is it Dinner? How is the Shi Quan Shi Mei offering, or is it better to BTC?

Thanks guys!

I know for sure that none of the flights to or from HKG gets any amenity kits and PJs. When SQ had CMB-SIN departing at 1am, amenity kits and PJs were given.

3 mins for reply! Did you even have a chance to read the whole post?

Darn, I better get a spare on my SIN-ICN overnight flight then!

So what flights are actually between 3h30m and 7h, and count as "night flights"? There can't be that many that depart so late?

I agree with feedback below from SQ LPP. I recently flew SIN-HKG on SQ on a 744 as the config in F is similar to long haul SQ 744 aircraft flights. It's much better than the domestic or short haul 772 or 773's. Anyway, I was not given the amenity kit or PJ's on this sector.

There are a few flights between 3h30m and 7h that are considered night flights. Couple examples are:

1. SQ638 SIN-NRT. Dep 11:40pm, Arr 7:30am. Total 6hr 50min
2. SQ423 BOM-SIN. Dep 12:25am, Arr 8:20am. Total 5hr 25min3
3. SQ602 SIN-ICN. Dep 11:50pm, Arr 7:15am. Total 6hr 25min (your flight)

Cheers.

I've been told that the SIN-NRT-SIN flights get kits and PJs. One is 7h25 and the other 6h30.

Received kits on SQ 638 and SQ 637. Should also be available on SQ 11 NRT-SIN, but not on SQ 12 SIN-NRT.

I think you are right! SQ11 NRT-SIN offers PJs and kits, but not on SQ12 SIN-NRT as a day flight less than 7 hours...

Actually IIRC SQ12 (SIN-NRT) is an exception to the rule - F passengers receive kits and PJs even though the flight time is slightly less than 7 hours.

I took SQ12 SIN-NRT in January and February, and no PJ and kits. But perhaps I had an anomaly in service. I should ask DeltaFlyingProf who just took SQ12 SIN-NRT-LAX two days ago. Hope he remembers whether he got one or two.

Come to think of the day flight rule, I recalled last year I got PJs and kits for FRA-JFK. But recently I took SQ26 FRA-JFK, and I did not get any.

Seems like your experience is more updated.
The last time I flew it was last year and I did receive an amenity kit and PJ. Perhaps something has changed this year.

Actually, SQ doesn't love me. I just checked with DeltaFlyingProf who took SQ12 SIN-NRT-LAX two days ago. He said: "
I got PJs on both.
So 2 dark brown PJs."
There you go... I had the anomaly from the service between SIN-NRT.

Yup, I took SQ12 3 days ago. Got the Kit and PJs on both SIN-NRT and NRT-LAX. Both times the dark coloured version of the PJs.
LSS asked if she could trade one of my male kits for a female one because they were short of male for the return. I said sure but she never acted on it.

Took the same flights as yours but did not get any PJs nor kits.

I only used one of the PJs. I can give you the other one if that will console you!
