FLYSCOOT’S “WITTY” REPLY TO COMPLAINT FAILS MISERABLY

According to the reader, a Singaporean woman had posted her complaints about FlyScoot's inflight menu, which she claimed to be nothing like the advertised photograph in the menu. The woman posted her photo on FlyScoot Facebook, showing a direct comparison between the food that was served and the food as advertised in the menu. The real item appeared to be less appetizing than the menu had shown it to be.

HOW TO TRAVEL ON SQ BUSINESS CLASS FOR FREE?

To earn miles, you must be prepared to play the ‘miles’ game. And you need at least one good credit card. I recently boarded a flight from Singapore to Amsterdam en route to Romania. As always I was flying Singapore Airlines, my first choice of airlines. At the time of check-in, I requested the SQ staff if I could get the single window Business class seat and she smiled back letting me know I had already selected it. I then thought to myself, when did I actually reserve the seat?

SQ STEWARDESS HELPS FEED TODDLER SO MOTHER CAN EAT INFLIGHT MEAL

This lady seated in front of me at seat 31J seemed to be separated from her hubby as he could not get a seat besides her (only my guess as I didn't get to speak to her). Anyway I see her having to manage the toddler pretty much herself through the 5over hours of flight. Every parent who flew with young babies would know how unnerving and tiring it is. Praying hard that baby will take to flying well, praying hard baby will not fuss too much, praying hard we don't get deadly stares from people around us if baby should cry. Managing a baby alone means there's no help and there's no chance of having a break at all. Often we just have to deny ourselves of rest and hunger so we can tend to the little one. Yesterday on this flight, I saw this air stewardess, Ms Han I think...I didn't get her full name as well, taking the initiative to feed the toddler so the mummy could get a breather and enjoy her inflight meal. She told the mum to take her time with her meal. It seems like a very simple gesture but means a world to a mum managing baby alone. Being able to just eat without interruption is such a luxury. Salute to all super single-traveling mummies who are so brave and self sacrificial in taking care of your little ones.

ANOTHER WORM FOUND IN SQ INFLIGHT HINDU VEGETARIAN MEAL

I preferred SQ for my corporate/business travels and indeed good flight and good services. But surprised last week when received an add-on with my Hindu special meal in flight SQ 5367. There was a worm in my food! Immediately reported the incident to crew and crew supervisor attended who offered me a $75(not sure for what). She told me the airlines will call as soon we land at LA , but no response yet even after I placed a complaint through their website.
