This is my first time taking the Singapore Airlines Business Class On SQ826 from Singapore to Shanghai. As it is a short haul flight, even though a red-eye flight, I have always been flying Economy class. A pity on this flight, there isn’t Premium Economy, as it is my preferred choice.

My Business Class On SQ826 to Shanghai is also on Boeing 777-300, similar to my January trip to Paris via Singapore Airlines Business Class SQ336. I took the seat 22K, there is view of the wing and engine. To have an unblock view, take seats before 19. Avoid 21A/K as these are windowless.
The seat configuration is similar to all other Singapore Airlines Business Class product with 1-2-1.
Boeing 777-300 offers only 1 electric plug. Fortunately, there is an USB for charging. On both side of the seat, there is the plug for the headphone. A compartment for the storage.
Numerous buttons for the seats inclination, lights and calling the service crew. I like the “Do Not Disturb” button which is available on Business Class seats.
Once Settled down, a welcome drink was served, choices of Champagne, Water and Orange Juice. For other choices, passengers would have to make the request.
Before taking off, the crew will take your before meal drink and your Main for Supper.
I requested for Ethiopia to go along with the warm Almond and Cashew Nuts. While I was enjoying the drink and snack, the crews were busy preparing our Supper.
Beginning with a bread. Assorted Bread Rolls and Gourmet Bread was served. This round I chose the soft herby Foccacia.
Appetiser for the Supper was the Salad of Colossal Crab with refreshing Mango and Citrus dressing.
Before the flight, I ordered the Angus Beef Burger from the Book A Cook. The beef patty was medium rare, though I think it is the perfect way for a beef burger, however, since it was warm-up in the flight, hence, it must have been cold since preparation. Hence, it made a good bed for micro-organisim. As a result, I only have a bite to taste it.
Lastly, fresh fruits from the basket with choices of Rambutan, Plum, Banana, Grapes, Clementine and Apple were offered.
After Supper, it is time to sleep. I visited the lavatory to brush my teeth.
Standard offering of Saver, Comb, Brush, Sanitary Pad and some bags.
Mouthwash, Moisturiser, Cologne were by the side too.
Before landing, once again, drink was served. At 6.15am, SQ826 landed at Pudong Airport and it taxi for quite a while and arrived at the gate at 6.27am.
Business Class On SQ826 was enjoyable. For a short haul flight, having a flat bed didn’t allow me to make full use of this feature. To pay for a premium and yet I don’t get to utilise fully, I would consider twice. Perhaps, when I feel like splurging or it is paid by someone, I would not waver.
