GER­MAN WINGS

Torque (Singapore) - - EDITORQUE -

If you’re read­ing this aboard an SIA air­liner (Torque is one of the high-fly­ing mag­a­zines avail­able in the cab­ins of Sin­ga­pore’s na­tional car­rier), thank you for your at­ten­tion and have a pleas­ant flight.

But I got the idea for this short tale (which is ar­guably bet­ter than a tall tale) on board a Lufthansa Air­bus, aloft between Changi and Frank­furt.

The long ’bus ride across six time zones was pleas­ant, the ser­vice was friendly and ef­fi­cient, the in-flight en­ter­tain­ment was en­ter­tain­ing enough and the food was good, with sur­pris­ingly de­li­cious “Chi­nese noo­dles”.

This is­sue has other like­able “LH flights” which orig­i­nate from Ger­many – Volk­swa­gen’s Golf (pg 64) and Tiguan (pg 42), Porsche’s Panamera 4 E-Hy­brid (pg 58), Mercedes’ SLC200 and SL400 (pg 74).

There’s also a code­share fight in the 2-litre busi­ness class lounge between the Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Jaguar XE (pg 32). EDI­TOR DAVID TING davidt@sph.com.sg
