Singapore Suites is often said to be in the top 3 First Class products in the sky, and I would fully agree on that. What makes Singapore so incredible is their excellent reputation and ability to have a very consistent product and offering across the board, SQ really know how to do First Class well.
J arrived at Singapore’s Changi airport about 4 hours before the flight and made my way to the First Class check-in. From here, all my formalities were completed and I made my way to the Private Room.
Boarding was started on time and priority boarding was being well enforced.
As I booked this flight very last minute, the only suite available to choose from was 3F.
The newer A380’s contain a total of 6 seats instead of the previous 12.
As I got settled into my seat, the very friendly crew offered me a pre-departure beverage. Only on Singapore would there be a choice of either Dom or Krug onboard.
The suites feature a side bench which also houses a bunch of amenities such as pyjamas, slippers and noise cancelling headphones.
I’m a huge fan of the leather and detailing that was used throughout the suite, it’s very elegant.
Singapore use really nice Lalique amenities for first class.
Underneath the bench is where you’ll find 1 of 2 power points, a USB port, NFC payment facility as well as the audio jack.
One of the coolest features in the suite would have to be the adjustable armchair. This seat is on a pivot and can electronically moved to your liking, very similar to the chair in American flagship first.
It’s got a variety of pre-set positions but you can customise to what you like.
As you can see below, you’ve got your own little office at 35,000 feet.
To start off the meal service, I decided I’d go with a ginger ale and some warm assorted nuts to start.
Some garlic bread was also offered in a break basket by the crew.
And for the main, I really enjoyed the coconut barramundi. As someone who’s previously hated this type of fish, I can say this dish changed my opinion – it was soo good!
The advantage of being able to swivel your tv and chair together to get the perfect view is another awesome ability in Singapore Suites.
After eating and getting a ton of 360 photos, I decided it’d be a wise choice to get some shut eye before my early morning arrival into Sydney.
Having a separate bed and chair isn’t a new feature in the aviation world but it’s definitely one that I enjoy and make the most of when available.
The A380 has two very clean and nice looking bathrooms which are located on the top of the staircase.
Singapore also stock the LALIQUE amenities in the bathrooms.
After having a little bit of sleep, I woke up and got charged into clothes as we were almost starting our decent into Sydney.
Despite it being close to landing, the crew were more than happy to still serve food and beverages. I was in the mood for some fresh fruits and this is exactly what I was provided.
And just like that, the flight was coming to an end. Definitely not long enough.
Overall, Singapore Airlines again lived up to their expectations and show why they’re a world leading airline. The First product is so well refined by SQ and they pull it off effortlessly. The overall seat and bed are comfortable, the warm and friendly service makes the experience that much better and what’s included catering wise is far better than than what I’ve had on some of their competitors.
Suites is a phenomenal product and I would absolutely recommend using your points for it. Would it be worth it for 8 hours? Yeah but it’s just not long enough, if you make the most of it, you’ll really have a better experience on those long-haul services.
Keep an eye out on Youtube because by the end of the week, I’ll be posting the 360 vlog os the whole Suites experience!
