Flying these days is a mixed bag. On one hand, there’s basic economy on Delta and United, which offers affordable fares for price-conscious travelers, but doesn’t provide seat assignments until check-in and only allows passengers to bring a carry-on that fits underneath the seat. On the other, there’s the elevated experience on Emirates and Qantas.
Soaring high above competitors is Singapore Airlines—the world’s most awarded carrier for a reason—which recently debuted individual cabins so grand they’ll make you look forward to long-haul flights.
Located on the upper forward deck of the new Airbus A380 fleet, the highly-anticipated first-class suites are spacious, luxurious, and come with a plethora of perks. (Even before you step foot on the plane, the royal treatments begins with expedited entry and lounge access.)
Each of the six private sanctuaries features a fully flat bed with adjustable recline, leather swivel chair, 32-inch HD flat-screen television, USB charging ports, closet, handbag storage, plush carpeting, and mood lighting. Because, well, ambiance. For couples, suites can be converted into massive doubles for majorly premium cuddling.
And then there are the opulent extras, such as a dedicated crew member assigned to cater to your every whim and personalized meals created by Michelin star chefs. On the menu might be blinis and caviar artfully presented on specially designed Wedgwood china or poached lobster paired with a glass of buttery chardonnay. Adding to the allure are Lalique pajamas, linens, toiletries, and perfumes. Plus, top-tier turndown service.
And forget waiting in lengthy lines to use the lavatory. The exclusive suites cabin boasts two beautiful bathrooms, one with a sit-down vanity—perfect for in-flight facials.
As to be expected, a voyage this extraordinary comes at a price. But it’s worth it to land bright-eyed, satisfied, and ready for whatever adventure awaits.
