Singapore Airlines flight SQ0707 to Singapore

Singapore Airlines flight SQ0707 to Singapore

Tuesday 22nd of June 2021 and it was nice to leave my apartment after 3 weeks home quarantine. I am not allowed to leave my apartment before flying to Singapore. But they require a corvid-19 test 72 hours before departure. Then I need a FIT TO FLY less than 24 hours before departure.

Anyway, so I needed to visit the hospital and it was nice to get out. Arriving at 06:20 and I registered and then I had to wait until 7 before the corvid test department opened. I had booked Yet another Smiley on www.aladdin.sta time to see the Doctor so I could buy one more box of Ivermectin. So she checked my vitals and I booked blood tests to look for cancer.

She sold me a package including ECG on the 4th floor.

I finished with the doctor and I got to take the Corvid-19 test, for sure nothing I was looking forward to. I got in to the room and I took my seat. And one test in the nose and one in the mouth, and the nurse could not answer why it was necessary for two tests if the Corona is so dangerous that we need to be 2 meters apart. Less than 2 meter between nose and mouth.


I finished my corvid test and I went to the 4th floor for my blood and ECG. We got right off with the blood test and then I continued with the ECG. I left a urine sample and I left the hospital to come back to pick up the result in the afternoon.

I picked up my corvid result in the afternoon and it was negative. I will have to come back tomorrow for my FIT TO FLY certificate. I was also happy that my ECG was normal, no cancer and I was pretty happy when I got back home.

and I got my corvid result yesterday, negative. So now I have everything except the FIT TO FLY and I went to pick up the FIT TO FLY in the afternoon. Now everything is ready for flying to Singapore. TAXI booked for 08:30 tomorrow morning and my alarm set to go off at 4 o'clock.

Thursday 24th of June 2021
and I woke up 15 minutes before the alarm was set to go off. I had spinach for breakfast, leftovers from yesterday’s dinner. My bag was ready and it was just to relax waiting for the taxi when I had done the dishes.

We have the drama of me signing off fresh in mind. Not possible to fly to Thailand so I had to go to Europe. Lucky our Agent's Representative was in Bangkok so he could bring my winter equipment and my camera stuff. I have prepared a bag that I keep on the bed in my guest room in case we have the same drama signing off next time.

I will also bring two yoga mats on board. Well, our Agent's Representative will bring them when he joins us when we come back to Thailand 3rd of July. Loading Bongkot 1st of July. So I will Yet another Smiley on www.aladdin.st hopefully have a V-shaped torso when I come back home.

The car called me at 8 o'clock to tell me that he had arrived. I was pretty much ready and we left at 8 thirty and I was happy to leave Bangkok and Thailand behind. But I hope this is the last time I have to fly to Singapore to work in Thailand.

Normally just a quick trip with a car to reach Rayong.

Well, Corona and nothing is easy, except for if you have plans for a Olympic Game or a soccer championship. Or even get on board a crammed commuter train.

The Truth

I was in the taxi, sitting in the back enjoying the AC and it was light traffic on Sukhumvit. It have been fantastic in Thailand since the Corvid started some 16 months ago. No traffic and easy to get hold of a taxi. Of course, closed public parks have not been so nice.

Anyway, I expected to be at Suvarnabhumi way before check-in opens. But nice to have ample time if something goes pear shaped.

There is only one entrance in use due to the epidemic. They are checking temperature at the entrance so there was no option to get out of the taxi at Singapore Airlines check-in row.

Check in at row K and the entrance door is at row B. I said bye to the driver and I went inside passing the temperature check. What is this temperature check for? Discover corona?

The airport was next to empty. Oh!I will really miss this times when the airport is full again. Of course, Singapore Airlines check-in was not open so I sat down for 45 minutes or so and at 09:45 the check-in was open when I went to check.

Check-in was quite quick even though they had to check all my documents needed for being allowed in to Singapore. I was informed by the very nice and helpful check-in staff that the airplane was next to empty. Exactly as I want it to be.

Singapore Airlines lounge is closed, but Thai Airways lounge just next to the Gate E1 is open. Perfect, flight SQ 707 is departing from gate E1.

3 passengers in the security and the immigration was totally empty, not one single passenger and I just had to take a picture. But I had to erase the picture when I had passed immigration as it was not allowed to take pictures. Suvarnabhumi International was like a Ghost Town.

But there was still a couple of shops open, but I don't need anything so I walked straight to Thai Airways lounge. I found me a soda water and I took my seat. There was also a small selections of pastries and pies. That was actually nice as I was a little hungry.

Frankfurt and Lufthansa lounge, there was nothing because of what they claimed to be due to corona. Lufthansa’s corona strategy seemed to be to cut everything, food and drinks and continue as normal with selling tickets. Outside the lounge you could by tea and sandwiches at all the food shops, but in the lounge, nothing.

And they had cut the opening time to a few hours during day time. So this was a strategy to save money, not to fight corona.

Pulling back from the terminal

I spent 30 to 40 minutes in the lounge and they came to tell me that Singapore Airlines was boarding. It was early but all passengers had boarded and they called up passengers to board after row number. Yes, I could not help myself so I asked why they called the passengers when there was no one to board.

I got my seat and as we had boarded early it was a little bit of waiting in my seat. No problem, I enjoyed myself relaxing in the seat leaning to the seat forward of me. I dozed off and I woke up when the plane pulled back from the gate.

Airborne and they were soon serving food and it is the first time I eat food from paper boxes, but it was good. Some pasta and a cake for dessert and I had two cups of tea.

Time passed quite quickly and we were approaching Singapore and we had some slight turbulence, typical, I like slight turbulence as it makes me fall asleep. But now we were landing so this was annoying. I could see that we had normal Singapore weather, whenever I come to Singapore it is overcast with showers and very hot.

Coming of the plane and it was same procedures as last time I was here. Transfer passengers were lined up and walking to the next terminal where they will check the temperature like they did with me last time. I was going to stay in Singapore so I could just proceed to the immigration.

They looked at my passport and the arrival card I had filled up online, pictures and finger prints, a look at the corvid test and I was off to pick up my bag. X-ray the bag in the custom and I have passed here many times. Many many times and never any issues with the X-ray but this time there was a whole team coming to look at the screen.

- Do you have a pocket knife in your bag?
- No
OK, have a good day and I was off to look for the wan that will bring me to the pier. So Roy Maersk next and you just need to click HERE to find out if I made it on board.
