Flight review – SQ25 Frankfurt to Singapore

Singapore Airlines
Gate: B46
Seat: 3A (First Window)
Plane: A380-800
Boarded: 11.49
Pushback: 12.25
Departed: 12.36 (Scheduled 12.30)
Arrived: 06.43 (Scheduled 06.50)
Duration: 12 hour 7 minutes

This flight was from the Rhein Main Airport (Frankfurt) to Changi Airport (Singapore). Continue reading
