Compared to EK, the EY shower experience is pretty weak but still nice to have. I don't get why SQ wouldnt just add one.

Are the suites nice? Sure.

Am I a bit underwhelmed? Yep. 

Color scheme is horrid, seems like a ton of wasted space, and the design doesn't come close to the take-your-breath-away elegance and beauty of EY Apts... And I don't know, somehow the lack of a shower bothered me less before I saw the final product. Now for whatever reason I think its omission is glaring.

Definitely would like to give it a whirl (which will undoubtedly be more difficult because F got slashed by 50%), but at the end of the day, considering SQ was the pioneer for revolutionized A380 F a decade ago, color me underwhelmed.

In a suite they would not care. But in the business double bed that is a felony regardless of marital status in the US. ( I will leave the litigation to Wendover Pro)

+1, my thoughts exactly, especially about the color scheme and the wow factor, it just isn't there compared to what their current suites are like. They definitely did need a rework but this really just didn't do it for me, disappointing since there were some really beautiful looking mock ups that were "leaked" a while back that they obviously didn't end up going with or weren't real to begin with.

I threatened no one. I have no authority to revoke your posting privileges. Was just my opinion.

I guess to each his own. I probably wouldn't use it other than for the cool factor anyhow and that only once. I have no interest in that.

This is one of many. Unfortunately it has become a big problem for the airlines.
What big problem? Has anyone here ever seen this happen?

Are you speaking from experience? If not, kinda hard to judge, as I've spoke to many who felt one way (read: like you) before experiencing, and then felt the opposite (read: not like you) afterwards.

On what basis do you make that statement

+1M.

Coming off a 15 hour flight there's nothing like taking a shower close to landing tim e and walking off the plane totally refreshed.

Has to be experienced to be believed
