I have always enjoyed travelling – the excitement of unfamiliar territory, meeting new people, exploring new places or just heading back home to see my family is always exhilarating! En-route back to Sydney from Singapore following a short break over Chinese New Year was not a typical trip back home this year. I had a pleasant surprise upon checking in 24 hrs prior to my departure – an upgrade to Business Class courtesy of Qantas Airlines! This was the first time I traveled Qantas Business Class so naturally I was curious about the execution of their service compared to other airlines.
Singapore’s Qantas Airlines lounge is nothing short of extraordinary. The lounge had an inviting feeling with a hawker centre-inspired open grill station, a cocktail bar plus a valet service for top-tier frequent flyers.
The lounge’s meal service includes a plate of the day tray-around service featuring a mixture of local cuisine of spices and flavours (inspired by Hawker Centre menu) which is served by the friendly Chef and waiters. That’s all alongside the standing menu and an extensive buffet of hot foods, salads bar, desserts and fruits.
A quick freshen up before boarding the flight was a bliss. The flagship’s showers are spacious, meticulously clean and all guests were treated with high quality amenities. Also not to forget to put on my in-flight beauty routine. Yes! I bring a piece of Face Mask with me when travelling 🙂
I love the personalisation service of the cabin crew and their attention to details. I was greeted by my name, it’s like they already knew me before meeting! And while I can go in details about what was provided on-board the flight from headsets, amenity kits, pillows and pajamas my attention was more focused on the food & beverage.
The Qantas Business Class’s menu was designed by Rockpool Chef Neil Perry, offering a complete personalised dining experience. With a great selections of foods, drinks and snacks, I opted for:
Supper: Roast chicken breast with almond romesco sauce, potato gratin and broccoli
Breakfast: Brookfarm macadamia toasted muesli with cranberries
So here’s my 5 top tips to eat healthy when you are on a plane:
