If I’ve ever needed an excuse to work harder towards being a bazillionaire, this is it. Singapore Airlines have launched the ultimate way to travel.
Forget First Class. The new Singapore Airlines Suites (there’s only 6 so get in quick) are tucked spaciously within the front cabin of the upper deck, giving customers a sense of exclusivity and intimate privacy aboard the A380.
Behind its artistically-designed sliding door lies a personal oasis complete with lavish furnishing and finishes.
Each Suite is furnished with a separate full-flat bed with adjustable recline and plush leather chair, enabling customers to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest in bed without the need to convert the bed from a sitting position.
For couples travelling together, the beds in the first two Suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed. When not in use, the bed can be stowed completely, creating even more personal space within each Suite. So now we know how all the celebs will be traveling when their private jets are being serviced!
Each seat is upholstered by world-renowned Poltrona Frau in fine leather, and is fully adjustable using an electronic control side panel which can accommodate a variety of sitting and lounging positions. The swivel capability of the chair (between 135 and 270 degrees) with recline up to 45 degrees provides added flexibility for dining and relaxation.
Each Suite also has a 32-inch full HD monitor that can swivel for the different viewing angles in seat and bed modes, a full-sized personal wardrobe, customised handbag stowage compartment, amenity box lined with soft leather, specially designed carpet and a feature wall with mood lighting – all exquisitely crafted to give a touch of luxury and intimacy.
The exclusivity of the Suites cabin is further accentuated by its two stylishly-furnished lavatories, one of which has a sit-down vanity counter.
And don’t even get us started on the food. Lobster Thermidor anyone?
Best of all, this is only one part of their refit of the Singapore Airlines A380s.
The new cabin offerings provide more space and privacy in all classes, featuring intimate and bespoke elements designed especially for the Singapore Airlines customer.
The new Singapore Airlines A380 will be configured with 471 seats in four classes, featuring the six amazing Singapore Airlines Suites and 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, as well as 44 Premium Economy Class seats and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck.
So even if you can’t afford the Suites, the rest of the plane is looking pretty amazing too.
Be right back, off to make my fortune!
