Welcome to my return trip report on Singapore Airlines!
For this flight, I decided to sit near the rear of the 737 MAX 8 to compare the noise level between this aircraft and the 737-800. Not only that, I chose the standard seat in which the IFE Entertainment System is located at the back for the front seat. This means I can give you a comparison between the standard and the bulkhead row seats.
Gone were the days when Singapore Airlines operated wide-body on popular cities such as Penang and Phuket with the Boeing 777-200 (Non-ER rated) and now the airline is operating the smaller narrow-body aircraft which allows more flexibility and adjustment of the frequency or up-gauge the aircraft on the routes when is needed. I am glad to have tried out both 737 models with Singapore Airlines to let you readers have a glimpse of what to expect flying on these aircraft. So without further ado, let's begin this trip report!

I chose the 2nd last row of the economy class cabin.
