As we speak: Evaluation of Singapore Airways’ new A380 First Class suite from London to Singapore

Singapore Airways – usually considered one of many world’s greatest carriers, regardless of the category you might be flying in – took its stellar fame to new heights final autumn when it launched a brand new First Class cabin on its Airbus A380 plane. I used to be extraordinarily fortunate to check out this new product throughout my current journey onboard a one-month previous A380 from London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN). Though my expectations have been sky-high, flying on this “lodge room above the clouds” fully blew me off my toes. Presently, the brand new product is put in on SQ’s newly delivered A380 plane (flying chosen routes to London, Zürich, Sydney and Hong Kong). Retrofit work may also happen on 14 current plane, to make sure product consistency throughout the airline’s total A380 fleet.

Singapore Airways options in my high 10 lists of one of the best airways for longhaul Enterprise Class, one of the best airways for longhaul First Class, the most luxurious A380 First Class merchandise, the world’s greatest airways for in-flight meals, and one of the best First Class amenity kits.

1. COST OF MY TICKET

One of the outstanding elements of my current journey onboard Singapore Airways’ new A380 First Class cabin was the price of my ticket. I paid 115,000 KrisFlyer miles and 200 GBP (British Pound) for the a technique journey from London to Singapore. KrisFlyer is the frequent flyer program of SQ and an award seat in Singapore Airways’ A380 First Class suites can solely be booked through KrisFlyer (and never through every other Star Alliance loyalty program).

Since I at all times credit score my Star Alliance flights to Miles&Extra – the frequent flyer program of Lufthansa – I had zero miles on my KrisFlyer account. Nonetheless, I managed to accumulate 120,000 KrisFlyer miles without delay by transferring 300,000 Marriott Bonvoy factors to my KrisFlyer account. Marriott Bonvoy is the loyalty program of the Marriott Resort Group. One of many nice perks of the brand new mixed Marriott Bonvoy program is that you could switch lodge factors to airline miles at a 3:1 dialog fee. As a bonus, you get 15,000 factors further for each 60,000 factors you switch to airline miles, for a complete of 25,000 miles within the airline program of your selection. As a consequence, one of many single greatest values of Marriott Bonvoy is to switch your factors in bulks of 60,000 to an airline companion and e-book free award tickets or upgrades, which is what I did for this flight. Learn right here my assessment of Marriott Bonvoy.

One downside remained. Singapore Airways usually fees an insane quantity of KrisFlyer miles – 210,000 in complete – for a a technique First Class ticket between any European vacation spot (together with London) and Singapore. They do launch a restricted quantity of saver awards thought on sure routes (generally prematurely, generally last-minute), which require fewer KrisFlyer miles. Saver awards between London and Singapore require 115,000 KrisFlyer miles as a substitute of 210,000 miles for normal awards. Nonetheless, availability of saver awards on Singapore Airways’ new A380 First Class cabins is just about zero (I had been maintaining a tally of this for months). However miracle occurred and a last-minute saver award grew to become accessible on the SQ317 route, which I shortly confirmed.


2. SINGAPORE AIRLINES FIRST CLASS LOUNGE AT HEATHROW

Singapore Airways has its personal First Class lounge at Heathrow’s Terminal 2, which is also called the Queen’s Terminal. Designed by famend architectural and inside design agency ONG&ONG, the lounge’s inside follows Singapore Airways’ dwelling away from dwelling idea. The intimate, rectangular house includes two distinct areas: one finish encompasses a sitting and rest space with completely different seat sorts harking back to Singapore Airways’ new Enterprise and First Class seats; the opposite finish encompasses a eating space with a small buffet station, a dozen tables and a self-service wine counter. Pure gentle pours in through giant floor-to-ceiling home windows on one facet, providing a view of Terminal 2A and an enormous development website. 5 completely different menus function all through the day, and the breakfast menu – which was offered throughout my go to – lists signature dishes like nasi lemak, fried carrot cake, hen curry and Singapore laksa.

4. FIRST CLASS CABIN

Singapore Airways’ new First Class cabin within the A380 is positioned within the entrance cabin of the higher deck, opposite to the provider’s A380s with the previous structure, the place you discover the First Class cabin on the decrease deck. The brand new First Class cabin options an exquisite, heat and trendy decor with gentle shades of gray and beige, creating a relaxing and impartial coloration palette. Footage don’t actually do justice to the sense of exclusivity, intimate privateness and understated magnificence you are feeling while you board the airplane.

The First Class cabin consists of solely 6 suites, with 3 suites on both sides of the aisle. That’s a substantial downscale in comparison with Singapore Airways’ A380s with the previous structure, which function 12 First Class suites (8 alongside the home windows and 4 organized within the heart). The aisle itself is framed by superbly crafted partitions, solely interrupted by the sliding doorways which give entry to the person suites. The exclusivity of the First Class cabin is additional accentuated by its two stylishly furnished toilets within the entrance, considered one of which options palatial dimensions and has a sit-down vainness counter.

Though Singapore Airways doesn’t prefer to be in comparison with its opponents, it’s clear that the design of the brand new First Class cabin was impressed by Etihad Airways’ First Class Residences, an idea which revolutionized premium air journey when it was launched in 2014 (and which I reviewed right here). Etihad Airways and Singapore Airways are to date the one airways to function single aisle First Class cabins on the higher deck of their A380s. Nonetheless, I really feel that Singapore Airways beats its Center East competitor, as a result of Singapore Airways’ First Class cabin feels much more unique (6 bigger suites on Singapore Airways in comparison with 9 smaller suites on Etihad) and all of Singapore Airways’ suites face ahead which isn’t the case with Etihad Airways (with 5 rear-facing seats on a complete of 9).

5. FIRST CLASS SUITE (+ BEST & WORST SUITES)

I had pre-booked suite 3A for the 13 hour flight from London to Singapore.

Separated from the aisle by artistically designed sliding doorways and surrounded by excessive partitions to guarantee privateness, all suites have an an identical decor, full with lavish but trendy furnishing and finishes. The suites are designed in such manner that they’re conceived as lodge room, and just like a lodge room, it does take a while to get used to the suite’s distinctive structure and all of the facilities which might be on supply. Every suite comes with a big leather-based seat and a separate folding mattress, a configuration which lets you lounge comfortably within the chair or relaxation within the mattress with out the necessity to convert the mattress from a sitting place. The entire suite’s options (e.g. seat place, lighting, leisure, and so on …) are managed by a handset within the armrest, an digital management panel on the facet, and a pill alongside the home windows.

The 53 cm (21 inches) broad armchair is the centerpiece of Singapore Airways’ five-star ‘lodge room above the clouds’, with a lot of the suite’s facilities positioned inside arm’s attain. The seat itself is upholstered in fantastic leather-based from Poltrona Frau, a famend furniture-making firm based mostly in Tolentino, Italy, that additionally has Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati amongst its purchasers. The super-comfy chair is absolutely adjustable, accommodating a wide range of sitting and lounging positions. The seat has a swivel functionality between 135 and 270 levels, so you’ll be able to swivel both in direction of the home windows to benefit from the views (albeit the A380 higher deck home windows are fairly small) or in direction of the desk or TV. As well as, the seat may also recline as much as 45 levels, so general, the adjustment options are fairly loopy for an airline seat and supply added flexibility for eating and rest.

The suite’s folding eating desk is aesthetically built-in behind a high in a marble desk, positioned subsequent to the seat. The small desk itself is adorned with white flowers and likewise encompasses a holder for the menu, which is superbly lit by a studying gentle (it’s clear that a variety of efforts went into the design). A big 32” touchscreen monitor in high-definition – connected the suite’s aisle-side wall – is positioned in entrance of the seat; this TV will be swiveled, permitting completely different positions relying on the place you need to watch the TV from (mattress or seat).

In entrance of the seat, perpendicular to the suite’s ahead going through wall, is the mattress. The latter is folded up while you board the airplane and made up by the crew while you request turn-down service through the flight. The mattress itself – 80.5 inches (205 cm) lengthy – is snug however not significantly giant. As well as, the mattress is kind of agency, and though I notice that Asian vacationers choose more durable beds, I imagine that Singapore Airways ought to supply a selection of mattress pads to extend the sleeping consolation of all passengers. Additionally, as soon as the mattress is folded out, the suite turns into a bit cramp, however in fact, in the event you’re not sleeping, it’s higher to stow the mattress to create a bigger house.

Whereas Singapore Airways’ A380 First Class cabin doesn’t function overhead bins, there’s loads of cupboard space inside the suite. A private wardrobe is positioned within the seat’s aisle wall, with sufficient house for smaller baggage, footwear and jacket and with a mirror within the door. Bigger gadgets will be saved beneath a hard and fast panel alongside the home windows that serves as a help for the mattress’s head when unfolded. Alongside the window, you additionally discover three stylishly designed storage compartments, considered one of them that includes a backlit vainness mirror.

For {couples} touring collectively, the beds within the first two suites of every aisle will be transformed to type a double mattress by reducing the partition between these suites. When not in use, the mattress will be stowed fully, creating much more private house inside every suite.

Female and male amenity kits from the famend French model Lalique are offered for passengers touring out of Singapore whereas a unisex amenity equipment is distributed on Singapore-bound flights.
