Private suites on singapore A380
« on: June 12, 2012, 07:40:28 PM »
Airline offers passengers luxury private suites... complete with double bed and Italian-stitched armchair (and there's no need to worry about the leg-room!)


For many people, long flights can often be ruined by poor leg room or passengers who you'd never want to see again.

but that could soon be a thing of the past.

Singapore Airlines is offering luxury, private suites on its A380 aircraft.
The height of luxury: Singapore Airlines is offering private suites on its A380 aircraft - complete with a personal television, luggage space, and a large comfy seat

Pricey: But a suite on the Singapore Airlines' A380 will set you back $15,750 per person

The only problem is that you'll need to be rather wealthy to enjoy the facilities.

A round trip flight from New York to Singapore will cost about $15,750 per person.

    Flying high: Air stewardess who was told she would be paralysed by cancer surgery beats disease AND walks again

However, those prepared to fork out the vast expense will be in for a treat.

Rather than be squashed in for a lengthy flight next to someone you've never met before, you can luxuriate in your own private cabin.

It includes window blinds and sliding doors which mean you can enjoy huge levels of privacy.
Ready for a nap: The private suite is then turned into a bedroom by lowering the seat so it lies flat

Romantic: The private cabin has room for two people

Absolute privacy: The spacious cabin even has sliding doors so passengers can shut themselves off from the rest of the world

Instead of trying to listen to the latest blockbuster over the noise of your neighbouring passengers, you could be lounging in a reclining leather seat watching a 23-inch TV with a drink in hand.

In fact, the armchairs are not only the largest ever by the airline but are also hand-stitched by an Italian craftsman.

There is also the benefit of a nice and large double bed just in case you fancy a relaxing nap.

If all that isn't enough, you can benefit from special menus which includes gourmet food and fine wines.

Neat idea!

A round trip flight from New York to Singapore will cost about $15,750 per person.

Will this be the equivalent of first class when it comes to booking such an award.

Lol, the wink face was because the Fairmont website wrote "Complimentary Suit upgrades" at the time.
