Together with 9 bloggers, the winners and finalists of Singapore Blog Awards 2011, I went on a 3-day trip to Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, Australia.

Last December, Jacky and I were on the inaugural flight from Singapore to Melbourne on StarClass – Jetstar’s international business class. For this trip, I had the opportunity to experience the Economy class seat with extra legroom. It was an overnight flight for more than 6-hr from Singapore to Melbourne so having a spacious seat is important for a good night rest. FYI, Melbourne is 2-hr ahead of Singapore.

Jetstar’s Economy Class.

My flight itinerary included two meals – dinner and breakfast, a pack of toiletries with eye mask and ear plugs. These are useful especially when the row with extra leg room that I was seated is near the restrooms, which suggests that there might be people waiting to use the restrooms and the lights from inside could be quite a distract.

Jetstar also provides the option to rent the inflight entertainment system that comes in portable size.

Simple yet delectable inflight meal on board. And I missed the breakfast ‘cos I wore the eye mask and dozed off without knowing that breakfast was served…
