Flight Review: Singapore Airlines A330 Business Class, KUL to SIN


In November, I was booked into Singapore Airlines for a very short flight, from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. For this 50 minute flight, I was lucky enough to be placed on Singapore Airlines’ A330 Business Class.

I boarded this morning flight shortly after the boarding process began. The A330 flight between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore has 30 Business Class seats in 5 rows of 2-2-2 configuration, as well as 255 economy class seats in a 2-4-2 configuration. For this flight, I was seated on the last row of Business, at seat 16A, which is the window seat on the left.

Waiting for me at my seat was a large pillow and headphones. Lucky for me, there was no seatmate next to me. The seat was 24.5 inches wide, which is larger than most airlines. The pitch of the seat was 60 inches.

The seat controls were hidden under a flap under the left armrest, and below it was the IFE remote control. My right armrest was the seat divider, which had a cupholder, and concealed the seat tray.

In front of me was the large TV monitor with Singapore Airlines’ superb KrisWorld entertainment system. The system had a lot of up to date movies and TV series, as well as a huge selection of popular movies, music, and TV series. A cloth hanger is located on the left of the TV screen, while two small cabinet compartments are under it. On the right side is a 2 compartment with the flight magazines and safety cards. There is 2 small tubes underneath the magazine compartments to be used to store newspapers.

The boarding proceeded quickly while the flight attendants served us a welcome drink. As this was a work trip, I just took water. Soon, the flight took off, and the flight attendants came around and served us a croissant. I took the Tuna filling, as well as a cup of coffee to go along with it. The meal was nothing special, in all honesty. I suppose you cannot expect much in a 50-minute flight.

Soon, the familiar sights of oil tankers and freight ships greeted me outside the window as we approached Singapore. We landed shortly after 9:00 am, and I proceeded to go to my first meeting of the day.

All in all, this is as good as it can get on a short commercial flight between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. As this is one of the busiest international air travel routes in the world, there are, of course, multiple cheaper options. This option just happens to be the best of them all.
