As I mentioned, I got a business class ticket for this trip. Singapore Air’s economy service is pretty notoriously good, and the business class is outrageous. This is my seat (and yes, I did have to use Photo Stitch to capture the whole thing):

However, much as I appreciate the luxury, I find myself a bit disquieted. The crew seems much-better mannered, and more knowledgeable about etiquette, than me. Whenever they serve something, they rearrange my tray, put things back in their place, and generally return everything to the Approved Ground State.

As a result, I approach every interaction with them with a little anxiety. Will I live up to the steward’s expectations? Will I put the dinner roll on the wrong plate?
