My flight was scheduled to depart at 2:10am, which is the latest flight I’ve ever taken. Boarding began a bit late and required a short bus ride to the remote stand. It was kind of cool boarding the A350-900 via stairs.
The cabin interior featured neon mood lighting otherwise was remarkably similar to the Qsuite cabin on the Boeing 777-300ER, which I took from Washington.
I was in window seat 3K for this short 5-hour flight to Malé.
The suite featured a 22″ HD in flight entertainment system loaded with the same excellent entertainment selection that I had on my previous flight.
Flight attendants came around shortly after boarding and offering a choice of pre-departure beverage and hot towel. I chose a glass of rosé champagne. Menus were then distributed.
Given this was such a night flight I was curious to see what was being served. Both the dinner and breakfast options were shown on a single menu page followed by a beverage list.
I declined service on this flight and instead chose to get some sleep before arriving in Malé. I slept the entire flight and awoke shortly before landing hence the mini review.
