POP Singapore Airlines First Class 777-300ER Singapore to Dubai
Let’s be honest. Sometimes you don’t want to read a whole review. So we’ve created a new series called POP: Pictures Only Post. Posts in this series will feature the product, minimal description, and focus on 5-10 Pics. A more detailed review will come in the following week or two, but here’s a quick look Miles’ experience onboard Singapore Airlines First Class 777-300ER .
So far we have flown from Boston to Hong Kong to Beijing to Singapore to Bali to Singapore and now on to Dubai.
Each flight is a complete surprise to my mom and the planning started nearly a year ago. For this particular leg we booked a One Way flight from Beijing to Dubai via Singapore and paid $100 stopover fee to break the legs apart and include a stop in Singapore. Magically, we had all managed to lock down Singapore Suites from Beijing to Singapore when we first booked, but only my mom had reserved First Class from Singapore on to Dubai. My dad and I waitlisted ourselves on First and booked business class. Roughly 2 days before we departed Beijing for Singapore, my dad’s confirmed into first and 12 hours later I was notified my waitlist cleared. AMAZING!
- If you aren’t aware of Singapore’s waitlist policy or sometimes it’s failure to work I’ll write a post on it soon. Briefly said – my dad never cleared the waitlist, but I checked Singapore’s website I saw a bookable seat. After calling and confirming…he was booked and 12 hours later I received an email saying my waitlist had confirmed and was bookable. Brillos!

How much does this cost? $19 + 97.5k Krisflyer. This includes the Suites flight from Beijing.
We booked pre-devaluation. However, because they had to re-ticket us after the waitlist confirmed, we were given back the fuel surcharges. So if you wanted to do this same this….it would cost you just 97,500 Singapore Krisflyer and $19.
We ended up with an 8 seat cabin
The flight was scheduled to be equipped with one of Singapore’s new 4 seat First Class cabins, but the day of departure there was an equipment change and we wound up on an older 8 seat cabin plane. We weren’t complaining at all. The experience of flying First Class out of Singapore is absolutely luxurious, and a wonderful experience to share with my folks on this special trip.
My parents took the middle and I took a window. Lucky enough…both window seats on the other side of the plane remained free and they sat in them for arrival into Dubai.
I attempted to lead an on board meditation
But got too excited…the BYAH! had to come out!!!
Maybe it was the Krug.
Or the Dom…
But I think most of all it was treating them to a BALLER flight and paying very little 😉
If you’re inclined to put those free pjs to good use…have a lie down.
