Quick (Relatively !) 4 hour flight from Singapore to Hong Kong. I hope the seat I get on the next flight is better than the one to Hong Kong - the flight attendants eventually gave me two blankets to cover the bare metal rods protruding thru the seat 'cushion' directly into my 'backside'. Not the most comfortable hump to sit on but luckily for only 4 hours - no way would 12 1/2 hours be tolerable. Spent a couple hours in the lounge in Hong Kong which is relaxing, more quiet that the terminal, comfortable seating, and good food for free; all-around good combination. San Francisco here we come.
Ciao for now
