Of course I was fully expecting the mediocre kosher meal, so I had ordered a Western Burger ($17) loaded with grilled pastrami, sauteed mushrooms, and caramelized onions and a hickory burger ($17) topped with onion rings and pulled brisket.

I’m going to make a number of comparisons between Singapore and Cathay Pacific first class. On Cathay you don’t have a suite per se but you do get a very comfortable wide seat that is semi-private. Besides for in the very first row in the nose of the Cathay 747 there are no good seats for couples on Cathay that want to see each other during the flight. Contrast that to Singapore suites where the double suites are just perfect for 2 people traveling together. Cathay First has awesome availability and can be booked with partner miles like AA and BA. Singapore Suites can only be booked with Singapore miles with fuel surcharges and it can be very tough to find 2 seats at saver rates.

The flight left Seoul at 10:20am on Monday and got to JFK at 10am earlier that day, so I got to check time travel off my bucket list, even if it was on an A380 and not a DeLorean. As there was nightfall on the plane I did daven shacharis for a 2nd time on Monday and wound up putting on tefilin 7 times that week. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: 2 Nights In Singapore And Back Home On A Korean A380
