New first class concept includes mini-apartment
Singapore Airlines’ first-class passengers will be able to travel in a mini-apartment from next month.
The carrier’s latest first-class concept has been unveiled and is designed to rival that offered by Etihad Airways, with a full-size bed in each of six cabins that will feature on refitted Airbus A380s.
The suite will debut on the Singapore-Sydney route from December 18, on SQ221 and SQ232, but it is not expected to appear on European flights until later in 2018.
A novel feature will be a removable wall in four of the six suites, allowing two passengers in adjacent cabins to join their beds together.
All cabins also have a leather armchair, 32-inch TV and electronic roller blinds. However, the two bathrooms are shared between passengers.
Emirates is due to unveil its new first-class product in the next few weeks and is also likely to feature private cabins.
