If you didn’t get a chance to try or see the Singapore A350 while it operated flights to Melbourne last year, you’ll now have another chance.
Airlineroute.com has reported that the airline will bring their A350-900 back to Melbourne in May and June of 2017. The airline did this last year for a few weeks and I even decided to fly on it to try it out, it’s a very comfortable ride.
The airline will be placing the aircraft on the SQ217/8 service which is currently operated by their A380. Here is the schedule for the flight:
SQ217 – 10:40AM – 08:10PM
SQ218 12:05AM – 06:00AM
For those not familiar the Singapore A350 is a 3 class aircraft with Business Class, Premium Economy, and Economy.
The aircraft has 42 suites which are the newest for the carrier. They are fully flat at 180 degrees, have a pitch of 60, length of 78 and a width of 28 inches. The Business cabin is in a 1-2-1 configuration.
The airline’s A350 has a total of 24 Premium Economy seats. They have a pitch of 38 and a width of 19 inches. The seats are in a 2-4-2 configuration, which is Standard for Premium.
Singapore’s A350 has 187 Economy seats in a 3-3-3 configuration. The seats have a pitch of 32, and a width of 18 inches.
If you’re wondering, the availability on the flight is pretty great both from Singapore and Melbourne. If you were to book an award I would recommend Krisflyer as they only charge 55,000 miles one-way.
