Singapore Airlines' all-new A380 Suites are every traveller's dream come true
Stop everything. Singapore Airlines has recently refurbished its A380 cabin and it's more than we ever imagined it to be. The world-class airline will officially launch its new Airbus A380 fleet in December this year. Expect to board a new fleet of planes boasting a refreshed configuration, with 471 seats in four classes — six Singapore Airlines Suites, 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, 44 Premium Economy Class seats, and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck.
Let's put it this way — our wildest dreams are made of those first class suites. Talk about luxe central, given that it looks like a spacious hotel room. The idea here is exclusivity and absolute privacy, where each suite is equipped with an automated swivel leather chair, 32-inch HD television, a wardrobe, and a full-flat bed. It goes without saying that you are entitled to your own stylish lavatory as well, which comprises of a sit-down vanity counter to get your face on. Hopping on a flight? This is the closest to a private jet you're going to get.
Folks in Business Class can look forward to a revamped cabin, with seats upgraded to a cocoon-back shell for more privacy. Its two side wings offer better back support and also reclines itself into a full-flat bed. Couples seated together will also be able to form double beds by lowering the centre divider.
Last but not least, those in Premium Economy and Economy Class will be able to enjoy seats with better legroom and reclining space, while saying goodbye to its fossilised handsets — hello, touchscreen monitors for all. What can we say? It's about time. There's also free-flow wine, an option that will make any flight better.
