SIA'a inaugural non-stop flight to San Francisco

SIA started its SIN/SFO non stop flight on 23 October. The flight time ranges from 14+ hours and 17+ hours depending on the wind direction. The cabin configuration is 42 business class, 24 premium economy and 187 economy. The inaugural flight was full.
The inflight service on the first flight out of SIN was quite chaotic which did not come as a surprise.There were some teething problems faced by the cabin crew as far as the meal services went. I had a WhatsApp message purportedly from a passenger on that flight who complained about the meal services. He described the meal services as "painfully slow" and "definitely not your typical SQ experience" and so on. On the other hand a cabin crew on the flight complained besides other things the confusion in stowing the food,drinks etc and the lack of space in the galleys. In his WhatsApp message he said "I really do not want to do this flight anymore". Referring to his other colleagues he said they "all swore that they don't want to do this flight anymore. $$ is good but it's really not worth it".
For operating this ULR ( Ultra Long Range) flight, the total income for a cabin crew ranges from about $3,000 for a junior rank to about $4,500 for an ifs. The tour of day for a typical ULR flight is about 6 days.

BT: Until I get the correct figures, above amount is my estimate only.
