Almost everyone has been on the flyer, but not everyone has dined in the capsule itself. Christmas is just around the corner, and besides the usual staycations and parties, here’s another option you can consider as a festive lifestyle activity, or even as a Christmas present for that someone special. T’is the season to be jolly anyway!
P.S pardon the hazy pictures, it was during an unfortunate period of time for Singapore. Rest assured that the Singapore skyline has much more to offer when it’s not hazy. ^^

G: It was Jem’s birthday eve when we went onboard the flyer, hence we chose to go ahead with the flight even though the PSI was almost 300. When you’re dining in the flyer, it’s not so much of the view anymore, but more of the dining experience. (:
Inside the patrons-only lounge G & J: After you have registered on the first floor, you’ll be brought up to the 3rd floor, where you can rest and relax while waiting to board the flyer. At this area, there will be orders taken for alcoholic drinks that will be served during the flight. These drinks are at a la carte pricing and not inclusive in the package you paid for online.
G & J: The ambience was one that was romantic and relaxing, with dimmed lights and a clear view of Singapore’s skyline. Even though the capsule was a shared one, the space each couple occupied was very private.
The 4-course meal was perfectly portioned, and served at exact 15-min intervals. The entire dinner lasted two full rounds of the flyer – one hour in total. At the half-hour mark, the last two courses will be brought in to ensure freshness and warmth of the food. It was quite nerve-wrecking watching all the food servers stream in and out, clearing the used cutlery while serving new ones. Mind you, the flyer continued its rotation and did not stop nor slow down!
We were not allowed to select any other courses except the main course (beef, chicken, lamb or fish) when booking online, so our guess would be that the other 3 courses constantly alternate or is up to the Flyer’s discretion. From what we tasted though, the quality is not too bad, complete with a full butler dining experience. Do let us know if you like the lamb and fish too!
You can book online here. Private capsules are also available, but it’s over a thousand dollars. Our total bill for the night was about $330, inclusive of an alcoholic beverage and a night of romance with the Singapore skyline.
