I recently reviewed  Singapore Airlines’ longest flight, from Singapore to Newark, and now I get to review Singapore Airlines’ shortest flight, from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.

Both flights were operated by A350-900s, though the flight between Singapore and Newark was operated by the “ULR” version (ultra long range), featuring just business class and premium economy.

Getting an A350 on a sub-200 mile flight sure is a special treat. At the door I was greeted by the friendly team of two flight attendants and the cabin manager, and was pointed towards my seat.

Singapore Airlines’ A350-900s feature 42 business class seats. This includes 26 seats in the forward cabin, in a 1-2-1 configuration.

Then there’s the rear business class cabin, where I’d be seated, featuring just 16 seats spread across four rows.

Since I was seated at the very back of the cabin, I also peeked into the premium economy cabin, which consisted of 24 seats in a 2-4-2 configuration.

Anyway, I had assigned myself seat 22A, the window seat in the last row of business class on the left side.

I won’t talk too much about the seat as such, given that I’ve shared my in-depth thoughts on the seat in previous reviews.

Even though this was a very short flight, service was spectacular. A moment after settling in I was offered a bottle of water, along with my choice of juice or champagne. I didn’t have a pre-departure drink, given that I had a good amount of Dom Perignon in the lounge and a good amount of Krug on the previous flight, and I figured I had already maximized my enjoyment.

A few minutes later I was offered a warm towel, as well as a selection of reading materials.

The cabin on this flight was empty. Of the 42 business class seats, only 16 were occupied. On top of that, I was the only person seated in the rear cabin, so I had all 16 seats to myself (not that there’s much you can do with more than one seat).

Economy was fairly full, on the other hand, though by 6:30PM boarding was complete. At this point the captain came on the PA to welcome everyone onboard and inform us of our flight time of 40 minutes.

At that point the safety video was screened, and we commenced our pushback.

During the taxi out I checked out the airshow for our short 184 mile flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (for context, that’s just over half the distance of a Los Angeles to San Francisco flight).

We had a quick taxi, and at 6:50PM we were cleared for takeoff on runway 2C.

Gosh do I love an A350 wing and engine view!

We hit some turbulence on the initial climb out, so the seatbelt sign wasn’t turned off until 10 minutes after takeoff.

At that point the crew sprung into action to close the curtains between cabins, and of course I sprung into action to capture pictures of “my” private cabin.
