It has been a busy week and I have not been able to continue – decided to take a bit of a break from my recent trip reviews and to post this from a friend’s recent trip.
A friend recently flew on UA 2 which is the direct competitor of SQ 34. Other than the fact that it is a direct flight and she was given the Economy Plus seat (at no extra charge), the rest of the flight was pretty forgettable. The best (or the worst) part was the “service with a snarl”.
Being a last minute trip, there weren’t many options available and this ticket cost almost $2k (while SQ’s ticket cost $3.3k!).
There were other options available, such as China Eastern Business Class (at $4k) but via Shanghai and Cathay Pacific Business Class (at $4.1k) but ex-Manila.
At $2k, this is probably the most economical way in getting from point A to point B (without a troublesome stopover).
Here are some pictures from the flight.

Well, at least she got to San Francisco and no one got dragged out of the plane 😛
update – pictures from UA 1 (her flight back). There was no Economy Comfort seat this time.
