With their sights set clearly on Etihad’s Apartment and Qatar’s Qsuite – Singapore ups their game
I had the pleasure of flying in Suites this past Spring and it was an incredible experience. The service is second to none and the space, privacy, and exclusivity is impressive. However, Suites Class has been around for a long time, and recently Singapore’s rivals have stepped forward with new products that have redefined First and business class. Etihad introduced the Apartment, a cabin that puts suites opposite one-another alonga single aisle on an A380. Qatar recently premiered their Qsuite: a business class capable of converting into a four seat family cabin, as well as the ability to combine neighboring seats into one bed. Singapore has responded with advancements
One single suite. Holy Schmoly!
Separate chair and bed. Unreal. The suites also feature a ton of storage, personal vanity, 32 inch tv and the bed flips up if you’re not using it. Two bathrooms for a cabin that totals just 6 seats on the upper level of the A380. I’ve read other’s first impressions which seem to rag on the color choices, but I really like them. Simple, understated, and rich. Sign me up.
And you can see the wall dropped making two suites into one. Talk about luxury!
And the new business class
As you can see the layout of the cabin is the same as it was before: 1-2-1. The seats, however, feature more storage space and privacy compared to the old design by utilizing carbon fiber which allows them to fit 78 seats into business.
Here you can see the seat with the privacy divider up…
And then a demo of the seats combined – similar to the QSuites.
