Singapore Airlines - Krisworld

Hola! We have arrived in Barcelona. The brand new/latest Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from Singapore to Barcelona via Milan was an awesome experience, complete with ‘new car’ smell. The 16 hours of flying zoomed by whilst using the new KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system, with its wide screen LCD in front of you, and 100s of movies, TV shows, and games to chose from, it works very well. It´s all interactive and on-demand, you can stop/restart, fast forward, rewind, and pause/resume what you’re watching. I watched a heap of movies: ‘Zodiac‘, ‘Casino Royale‘, ‘The Number 23‘, ‘Babel‘, ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness‘, ‘Night At The Museum‘ and classic… ‘Raising Arizona‘. Plus I watched a number of TV show episodes of: ‘The Office (US)‘, ‘The Office (UK)‘, ‘Extras‘ and ‘The Simpsons‘. Yeah I didn’t sleep a wink! My iPod was neglected! If I had needed to use it I would have been able to keep it powered from the power outlet in the arm-rest too, excellent! There´s a USB port next to the screen too, which you can use to plug in a keyboard/mouse, memory stick etc. for the word processing and spreadsheet applications. I was hesitant to plug my iPod into the USB port though, after finding out what happens when you plug a PC formatted iPod into an Apple Mac… it wipes everything! There are heaps of old-school Nintendo style games too. It’s dissapointing Singapore Airlines don’t use these new aircraft to/from Australia. The aircraft we had from Sydney to Singapore was very old, it also had the KrisWorld entertainment system, but a much older-more basic version, most of the same content though.

Anyway, off to explore Barcelona, and pick up our Sonar tickets.
