"Best & Worst" — Traveller flies Lion Air: "World’s most dangerous airline" before boarding 1st class Singapore Airlines – Singapore News

In his seat on Lion Air, he noted that news reports have said that the carrier has worked its pilots to exhaustion and has faked pilots’ credentials, which he did not want to think about too much. Worse yet, there was something inside the toilet!

SINGAPORE: Travel vlogger Ben Morris decided to get the worst-to-best flight experience recently, saying he wanted to “start at the bottom” before his experience at the top.

And so Mr Morris Googled “the world’s most dangerous airline” and came up with Jakarta-based Lion Air, which received an average grade of 3 out of 10 based on customer reviews on Skytrax.

Then, for a truly unique experience, he takes a Singapore Suites, Singapore Airlines’ first-class service flight. And since the excellence of Singapore Suites was already covered here, let’s look at Mr Morris’ Lion Air experience, shall we?

“I feel like it’s only fair that to get to experience the best, I need to experience the worst,” he says at the beginning of his video, which has now gotten over 200,000 views.

He books a flight to Denpasar as he’s headed back to Bali.

“I’ve been on RyanAir, Wizz Air. Can it get much worse?” he asks before thoughtfully considering and saying, “Probably.”

Mr Morris then set out to find out if it was as bad as “the reports set it out to be.”

Boarding went off without a hitch, with the blogger observing that the plane was full, but everything seemed normal so far.

His first impression was that “it wasn’t that bad”, with the seats being surprisingly comfortable, if a little “crusty.”

But when we see him next, he expresses concern that the seatbelt sign hasn’t gone off yet, even if they’ve been in the air for a while, and that everyone seems to have passed out, so there may be something in the air.

Mr Morris admitted to being paranoid when everything was completely fine until he checked out the bathroom, where an unknown liquid had pooled in front of the toilet. Worse yet, there was something inside the toilet, which he graciously pixeled out.

Back in his seat, he noted that news reports have said that the carrier has worked its pilots to exhaustion and has faked pilots’ credentials, which he did not want to think about too much.

Needless to say, after a bumpy landing, he was happy to look forward to a very different experience on Singapore Airlines. /TISG
