Here is the second part to my long haul journey with Singapore Airlines to Melbourne. For part one covering Zurich to Singapore feel free to go here to read it. In Singapore, I changed aircraft and climbed aboard the airline’s new A350 plane which also has a fantastic new interior and business class seat.

It was a fantastic and speedy ride down to Melbourne just over 7 hours, I was so tired already, and wanted to have a quick meal and a nap.

But first the Australian outback and my first glimpse of home in a few years! 🙂

Hello outback. 

On offer was a continental breakfast, I can understand why Singapore Airlines offer this, most people were connecting passengers and probably not interested in a full meal. I certainly wasn’t and was more than happy with just a bit of fruit and juice before my nap.

A few hours before landing in Melbourne the lunch service commenced, I was a little hungry and looking forward to the service. On offer for lunch were three options as follows..

First up was the lunch entree and it sounded so familiar, then I realised I had sampled it on my flight from Zurich to Singapore.  It was still great the second time around. 🙂

Entree: Smoked duck breast with apricot compote, mesclun salad and mustard vinaigrette. 

For lunch, I ordered the lamb, and my friend had pre-ordered the Lobster Thermidor, it looked excellent, I’ve sampled this dish before on a previous SQ flight.

I enjoyed this main meal, it was served piping hot, and the flavours of garlic and ginger paired so well with the lamb and vegetables. Just lovely. Oh and I’m completely addicted to the garlic bread on Singapore Airlines, I love it. It goes against my rule of no bread when flying, but oh well…

Dessert: A special 70 steps fruity mango and lime dessert and the cheese plate. 

To finish, I couldn’t resist the dessert options and was swayed to take some cheese as well. No complaints here, another excellent meal service by SQ.

The only thing that I didn’t like about this flight sector was how quickly it went by before I knew it we had landed in Melbourne. I’ve flown SQ a number of times in economy, business and first class and it’s always been consistently excellent. I look forward to flying with them again soon!
