Soon enough it was time to depart and step back to reality. The seaplane landed around 90 mins before departure of our SQ flight and we took a quick bus ride over to the main terminal
Love a good regional airport
The check in counters were on the ground floor
I was actually a little surprised to see how many airlines offered direct flights to Male. Obviously business is brisk during Easter!
Both domestic and international flights from the single runway here at Male
One in arrivals, one in departures – check out the pricing!
Decent range of drinks available – didn’t try the snacks
I think the crudites had been sitting out a little while 🙂
In retrospect, the lounge food was probably on an equal footing with the inflight catering!
For those with sweet teeth out there
The joy of a bus to gate is getting up close to these amazing pieces of engineering we take for granted every day.
Adios Male Airport
Just a few of the private jets on the tarmac!
The cabin was a light 10/26 occupancy with mostly holidaying couples like ourselves, with everyone spreading themselves around the cabin.
Panoramic of a very quiet cabin
With such an empty cabin, I enjoyed take off from a window seat savouring our final glances of a fantastic 10 days in tropical paradise.
Let’s just say this was the pre-appetiser appetiser!
(This was a lunch service)
I wonder whether this flight gets double catered out of Singapore, or whether there is catering loaded at Male.
Cheeky glass of white with the meal
Whilst there’s plenty of ways to skin a cat, i’m happy with any method when garlic bread is prepared!
The stir friend rice vermicelli with prawns, fish fillet and vegetables – just no. Don’t do it.
The wokfried chicken in preserved black bean sauce with chinese greens, carrot and steamed rice didn’t fair much better. The terminal burger king was sitting even better after these miserable dishes!
The pandan ginger creme brulee made up for the lacklustre main courses
There’s ya cheese plate love!
Plenty of legroom in the seated position, but gee i wish they’d do something about the legroom when fully flat.
Kind’ve like vice versa chocolates of yesteryear!
I don’t find the headrests in Singapore Business Class to be particularly comfortable. Seat’s nice and wide though
