With Etihad dominating the skies with its “The Apartment Suites” on the A380 which is award winning, and Emirates announcing its revamping of its First class Suites also on the A380 as well as Boeing 777-300ER , Singapore Airlines has responded with all new cabin class products. But this report will specifically look at its all new First Class offering. Its existing first class products on the A380 was 12 years old, so an overhaul was definitely overdue. The new fittings will be present on the 5 new A380s Singapore Airlines has ordered and 14 of its existing A380s will be retrofitted. The new First Class features a 32′ HD TV, a Poltrona Frau Swivel Chair upholstered in fine leather, sliding privacy doors, a fully flat bed as well an ottoman stool . In contrast to the existing layout of Singapore’s A380s, there will only be 6 first class suites compared to the 12 present. This guarantees a much more spacious and intimate cabin as well as a more one to one tailored cabin service.
