Earlier this year, Singapore Airlines set the aviation world abuzz by announcing it would be completely redesigning its trendsetting First Class Suites, as well as refreshing business class, premium economy and economy aboard its flagship Airbus A380s. Today, the airlineofficially unveiled its new First Class Suites…and they are as stunning as expected.
While Singapore’s A380s currently feature 12 First Class Suites at the front of the jumbo jet’s lower deck, the new A380 configuration will have just six ultra-luxe suites on the top deck arranged in a 1 – 1 pattern, with just one suite on either side of the aisle, bringing it back into competition with newer products like the First Apartment on Etihad.
Each will have its own Poltrona Frau leather armchair that is 21 inches wide and reclines up to 135 degrees. Except for takeoff and landing, it will be able to swivel and adjust into various seated and lounging positions.
The Suites will have entirely separate, stowable beds that will measure up at 27 inches wide by 76 inches long and will be dressed with a cotton Lalique duvet and two pillows. What’s more, two of these suites on each side of the aisle (1A/2A and 1F/2F, to be exact) will be adjoining so that couples traveling together can combine their space and have a full-size bed.
Next to the chair will be a console that holds a large table for dining and working, as well several small stowage compartments that will contain Bose noise-canceling headphones and all-new Lalique amenity kits, a lit vanity mirror, and a touchscreen tablet to control the seat. Each suite will also have its own 32-inch HD in-flight entertainment monitor and electronic window blinds.
