Singapore Sling

Singapore Trip 3/21/2017
Our flight to Singapore scheduled for 2:15 pm was delayed until 4 pm. We used miles to treat ourselves to a business class upgrade on this trip so we used the extra time to enjoy the new Polaris lounge at O'Hare. It was quiet and comfortable, and uncrowded which was a nice change from our recent experiences in the United Clubs at O'Hare. After boarding we learned there would be an additional delay but fortunately it was brief. We took off about 4:30 pm. Janet and I each watched a movie before dinner then after dinner settled in to sleep. After 16 hours of flying we landed for an hour and a half scheduled stop in Hong Kong then re-boarded for the continuing flight to Singapore. Customs and immigration were a breeze at 2:30 am, and the 20 minute taxi ride to the hotel was traffic free. We checked in to a nice JW Marriott with a very reasonable rate thanks to Jennifer and Paul. Tomorrow we are making a day trip to Kuala Lumpur to check the Petronas Towers off my bucket list. 😄 I'll try to have some pictures for the next post.
