Thank you very much for that explanation, Snifter. Now you put it like that, it does make sense! I hadn't thought of the flight being generally quieter, as people will sleep/doze. I think we'll hope to have 6 or so hrs in Singapore airport....mainly because I love the idea of being able to have a swim in an airport! I guess we'll have to get used to the idea that Singapore is probably not going to be anything like any of the airports we've been to before - the thought of 6hrs hanging about in an airport normally sends shudders down my spine!
Guess what flights we'll be pushing for?!
Thanks again :)
