On Singapore Airlines, there are a few ways to make your flight memorable, including getting a free birthday cake and a Singapore Sling, and yes even in economy class. A former flight attendant with the airline, Wong Sheau Qian, revealed in two TikToks, that have gained over 600,000 views combined, the lesser-known perks that each passenger gets. User @geiwosushi lists all of the alcohol that passengers can order, all for free.
“It came to my surprise that many people didn’t know the extensive menu we offer despite it being public information,” she remarked. In the video, she lists all of the alcohol, such as “brandy, bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, and beer, with the beer usually being Tiger.” Apparently, cocktails can also be made on request because they have so many ingredients. From Singapore Slings to gin and tonics, Bloody Mary’s or Screwdrivers, they can make them all. The hot drinks also offer a selection. “Not only having coffee but also jasmine tea, green tea, hot milk, and the chocolate malt drink Milo, Singapore Airlines will make it for you” she commented. The juice selection is more than just orange and apple as well, there is also pineapple and tomato too.
In her second viral video, she talks about the food and especially how passengers usually request a second meal. It’s a popular request to ask for a second serving and they are allowed to get one, but only if there are extras and all the other passengers have been served first. Wong also highly recommends ordering the “special meal”, because they include everything from diabetic-friendly meals to vegetarian meals, and low-lactose and low-calorie meals. Wong suggested that passengers go on the airline website before they fly to see what free snacks are available. The shorter flights have snacks like cup noodles and biscuits, whereas the longer flights have muffins and granola bars as well. Also if it’s your birthday, honeymoon, or anniversary while onboard, make sure to request a cake before you board so the flight attendants can bake it for you.
Wong plans to make another TikTok, but this time talking about all the amenities you can get on board, including “earplugs, eyemasks, dental kits, sanitary pads, socks only for flights 7 hours or more, playing cards, writing pads, pens, children’s amenities, children headsets, nail files, and sewing kits, ” Wong commented. Singapore Airlines has everything you could want, need, and more.
