Boeing 777-300 9V-SYI (Age 11 years)

It's been quite a while since I flew with Singapore Airlines so it was quite exciting to be flying with them again, especially in First Class. I took this flight as part of a series of flights to get to London from Melbourne on a trip I took recently.

This first sector is the late morning service out of Melbourne, SQ238, operated by the older Boeing 777-300's. It is one of 4 daily flights that Singapore Airlines operate to Melbourne and the aircraft today was 9V-SYI, an 11 year old bird and one of 7 of it's type in the SQ fleet. These aircraft have 8 first class seats which are almost the same as those installed on the B777-300ER fleet, as well as 50 regional angled lie flat business class seats and 226 economy class seats. All up the aircraft seats 284 people.

I arrived at the airport around 9.45am and checked in at the first class counter. Since I was continuing on to Hong Kong I was issued two boarding passes. The economy class lines were fairly busy since the service was fully booked in economy, but things went along quickly for those with priority checkin. I was given an express pass and sent on my way. 

Once through passport control and security I headed into the depths of the airport and found the Krisflyer lounge, I was welcomed into the first class side which is off to the left after reception.
