Singapore Suites has always been an iconic product and for a good reason, it was the first ever enclosed suite onboard the A380. I’ve flown Suites before and loved it, so when I got the opportunity to fly it again I took advantage of some Krisflyer miles and booked it to Sydney.
Now flying first class is always an incredible experience but there’s nothing like hearing ”Welcome aboard Mr George, you’re the only passenger is Suites tonight. What seat would you like and single or double bed?”
Singapore’s A380 has 12 enclosed suites on the lower deck, for when I had to be seated, I chose seat 3A.
Despite it being an older First Class product the features on the seat are modern and there is quite a bit of space in the suite.
The lovely crew came and introduced themselves and provided me with Pyjamas (which are apparently no longer Givenchy branded) and a Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kit.
The kit includes a full bottle of cologne (perfume for women), moisturiser, lip balm, socks and a face towel. The crew handed me the slippers and eye shades separately.
The crew also handed me a pair of Bose QC25 headphones.
As you can see, the seat itself is quite wide, and the side table is quite large which is good for storing things on.
On the right side of the seat, you’ll find the lighting controls, crew alert buttons, do not disturb button and the IFE remote.
On the left side of the seat, you’ll find the USB and powerpoint, headphone jack and other various ports.
On the armrest is the seat adjustment buttons.
All of the suites are forward facing and have blinds which are quite cool.
If you’re travelling as a couple or have the whole First to yourself, you really want to select the middle seats. Singapore Airlines was the first carrier to introduce a double bed in the sky, and it is really just awesome to have the whole space.
If you’re travelling alone and have a middle seat, no problems. There is a divider for you to pull down.
Before takeoff, I had a Midsummer Breeze (mocktail).
As this flight was departing at just after midnight it wasn’t a full menu service. Instead, it was supper. Sadly I didn’t get photos of the menu.
To eat, I had the Beef Fillet with Red Wine Sauce.
As I was eating, the crew made up seats 2C&D into the double bed. The beds are quite nice to sleep on but I still think Cathay’s First Class is more comfortable for sleeping.

The crew also put their signature bears on the bed; they made for a cute photo!
10 minutes before descent the crew woke me up and asked if I would like something to eat or drink, as I had just woken up I skipped the food and had two cappuccinos.
They were very nice, and Singapore Airlines have a large selection of Illy coffee available onboard.
Coffee and a fantastic view, what a great way to start my morning.
The arrival into Sydney was smooth and not surprising; the weather was overcast.
Singapore Airlines is still a solid First Class products and remains one of the best out there, especially for their soft product. I’m extremely excited to see what the new suites will look like and hopefully I’ll get to try that sometime in the near future.
How did I book Singapore Suites?
