Singapore Airlines is one of the most consistently top rated premium cabins in the world for a reason. To me, they are the ideal business class.
The seats are the best. I sleep much better on lie-flat beds like on the 77W. In this regards Singapore Airlines is ahead of the curve (although many airlines are catching up). Yes, the seats aren’t completely flat on the A330 but they are 180 degrees and the incline is very mild. Compared to many other airlines, including Thai Airways, it’s barely an incline at all. But both the lie-flat of the 777 and the A380 or the almost lie-flat of the A330, have incredibly spacious seats – 30 inches wide.
Like already stated in the last post about Asiana, Asian airlines in general have different standards of service. Higher levels of service. Is it just me or do they tend to hire younger good looking flight attendants? The food was average but in their defense, both flights were all-night flights so they gave one small quick meal, either in the morning or that night, in order to let passengers sleep.
What else makes them the ideal business class? Well inside the Singapore airport, perhaps the nicest airport I’ve seen, is an incredible business class lounge. It’s enormous and perfect. The food is fantastic – fantastic quality and a wide selection. The bathroom of the lounge has showers of Ritz Carlton quality. Maybe an exaggeration but this is how marble floored, rain shower rooms, with all the amenities, struck me. Singapore doesn’t excite me like Hong Kong but I would love to return First Class to check out the other lounge and the front of the plane. Next time.
Again, the best is yet to come.
