This trip was undertaken in 2009. After returning from Beijing, see trip report : Shanghai Airlines FM 9108 PEK - SHA
It was time to return to Singapore. Since it was red-eye flight, didn't see much of the outside, was still dark on arrival in Singapore.
The Shanghai airport was deserted. With only few flights departing around midnight. 2 EK's to Dubai, Turkish to Istanbul and SQ to Singapore and few domestic flights.
Had arrived early to the airport and the check-in counter wasn't open.Trip Video: Singapore Airlines 9V-SYL SQ825 PVG - SIN
