Here I go! Getting the spider-man themed flight was a cute bonus, though I’m not particularly a fan of spidey himself. You’ll see plenty of the theme throughout this review.

Grabbed from official site
  • Flight Timing – Depart SIN 14:00 arrive TPE 18:50

  • Seat – 36G

Boarding – I didn’t have time to visit any lounge prior but no loss anyways since the flight was departing from Terminal 1. Boarding time was 30mins prior which I thought was rather tight but it turned out okay. It was quite refreshing for me to be welcomed by Taiwanese mandarin which I’ve aways thought was so melodious. The cabin was awashed in classy brown and grey colors and looked really pretty!

Seat – Seat 36G was the aisle seat in the middle section, midway mark between the first and last row of the section. The seat still felt new-ish and clean to me, which was a bonus, and had adequate leg space for the 1.6m me. Placed on the seat is a pillow as well as wrapped blanket – shoutout to the very comfy plush feeling blanket!

In front of me is the IFE screen, a USB charging port on the ledge below it, and a little fold out compartment for storage which was able to contain my phone and charging wires which worked very well for easy access. The seat pocket contains the quintessential in-flight literature, and the earphones which must be one of the most uncomfortable ones I’ve ever used – they are way too small to fit nicely on adult ears and keeps falling off. Sound quality itself was perfunctory as well.

I later realized there was another charging port built into one of the two side ledges in front but can be a rather awkward spot to reach if you do not know your neighbour.

We pushed back on time and the screen played the cutest animated safety video ever – some still shots for reference heh.

In-flight Entertainment – after settling in, I was excited to check out the IFE options and discovered indeed that there are many but the selection may not be the newest. Movies, TV shows, and games definitely good enough for a 4.5hr flight though.

In-flight meal – on Starlux flights, even economy passengers are able to pre-select their choice of meals at the 48-hour online check in mark which was a bonus for people like me who maybe is a bit particular about their meals. You’d see the choices under Manage My Booking section and just need to pick whichever appeals to you – I of course picked the Roasted Honey Garlic Chicken Thigh with Mashed Potato.

But if not, the menus are viewable on the IFE during the flight:

Spiderman themed serviettes and a pack of rice crackers were distributed to start:

Then my choice of main arrived alongside the appetizer, dessert, bun and fruits on one tray! The chicken itself was tasty and I was happy to get some vegs for sure. The rest of the stuff were less than desirable for me as it was either carbs or too sweet. The lonely bun was cold too.

This flight did not have their signature blue-hued Cosmo cocktail and instead offered Twilight Mojito instead – a super nice mix of rum, green tea, and orange. It was so nice I had a total of 3 servings throughout the flight. #iamnotadrunkard

Lavatory – as expected, the lavatory was cosy and quite cursory but I did find the branded toilet paper a cute touch. The face mist and lotion was Idun branded which had a nice smell. The space itself was kept decently clean which is always nice when flying in Y.

Service – I experienced friendly and warm service by the mostly youthful crew so no complains here for sure! Despite being in Y, there was no sense of “hurried service” you sometimes get on other airlines in the same cabin class. No over-the-top great service but hey for a 4.5hr in Y, all you need is to get the basics right isn’t it.

In Summary,

Happy to check off my inaugural Starlux flight. The pleasant experience made me look forward to my return in Business! 🙂
