Pretty much been that way with every SQ crew I've had. And I've flown SQ in R, J, and Y.
Can't beat SQ crew.  Though granted, they're not handing out Blue Label ;)

Had a trip once where outbound I got upgraded at the Lounge to LH J, and my return was SQ Y. Said then, liked better the service in SQ Y then in LH J, and yes, the FA on SQ bend down when talking to me.
The flight after that, was SQ R, and as the entire crew came to say hello, I told the In-flight-manager that I flew SQ Y, and the service was great, he replied "you ain't seen nothing yet..."

Yup, SQ Y crew kills most J and even some F crews.
Definitely beat the LH F crew I had.

Ah, they continue to dazzle, with what I believe is the first or second F product on the 787 (with BA being the other):

EY F on A380



If there was even a single day with AA F availability between JFK<>LHR, I'd be able to check this off the 'ol bucket list.

Darn you AA with your lack of NYLON F availability.

What's the Guest first? The apartment?
What's the First suite saver? And why is it so much more expensive than the Guest first?

One seat has been bookable for a few weeks. Now two seats are, which wasn't the case until recently AFAIK.

Doesn't have to be a separate ticket.

Can be ME-EU-USA on one AA award ticket.

Then you'll have to pay UK tax. Rather stay with BA F (availability is good) and get it on one award with AA.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

About $350. Not too terrible if your adamant on flying the apartment, and still pennies vs. the real value.
