What do you do on a Singapore Airlines A380 in Suites Class? Sleep? Eat? How about binge-watching season one of White Lotus?
Binge-Watching White Lotus On Singapore Airlines
I’ve heard Ben from One Mile At A Time talk about a White Lotus and it has also come up in some discussions in our social circles, but I don’t pay for streaming services of any kind and we do not have a TV in our house. Thus, I may have borrowed my brother’s Netflix login to watch House of Cards or The Crown, but I don’t make a habit of doing so and find my days are busy enough without the distraction (which is admittedly sometimes a welcome distraction) of more screen time.
During a decadent lunch on my 12-hour Singapore Airlines flight from Frankfurt to Singapore, I decided to watch episode one of season one of White Lotus, in which a motley crew of entitled folks head to a Hawaiian resort and unleash their worst, most privileged impulses.
After lunch, I settled back to relax, planning to go to sleep. Well, maybe just one more episode.
I could not stop watching. The series is a satire and takes place over a week in Hawaii at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (renamed the White Lotus). I found the acting top-notch, the plot and subplots hilarious, and at the same time, director Mike White really invites you to think about many facets of life.
This is truly a black comedy that I found worth my time. Each episode is more twisted than the last.
Unfortunately, by the time I stopped…we were only a couple hours from Singapore.
Yes, I spent my flight in Singapore Suites watching a screen. On the other hand, it was from the comfort of a plush bed in my pajamas with my feet propped up and you could say that I fully enjoyed the trip rather than just slept through it…
I spent my time in first class on Singapore Airlines binge-watching White Lotus season one.
Yes, I have now watched season two as well (and preferred it) and look forward to season three, which will be filmed in Thailand.
I may have arrived in Singapore tired, but it was a fun way to pass time during the flight.
