First Singapore Air Flight And A380 Suite Class Switch On SFO Route

It seems that everyone is flying Singapore Air lately. We just got off our first ever Singapore Air flight. Let me sum it up by saying I didn’t want the ~6 hour flight to end.

I’ll have a full trip report up in the coming days but here are my initial thoughts.

I was booked into the last row of Business class in a window seat. I asked for a seat closer to the front when I got to the gate. The gate agent moved me up to 15A then I boarded the plane. The 777-300 First class seats we thought we would be taking next year looked amazing and spacious.

Next, we headed to check out the business class cabin. The seats were huge. I felt like two people could sit on that seat. The seat felt very private almost like a suite without the doors. I wasn’t very hungry after having flown Korean Air in Business Class, but had to try the dinner service to make sure it would be ok for our flight next year:)!

The service, the pace and the food were all exceptional. I can’t even imagine how First Class is going to be.

First, First Class Seat On The A380

We got in on the Singapore First Class award booking Frenzy with a trip from SFO to SIN and then on to Maldives. We were so excited to try out the First Class on the 777-300. But this morning it looked like we would get to try out the new First Class Suite on the A380!! As Point Me To The Plane mentions in his post, Singapore will add A380’s to their SFO flights.

However, the switch is only for the SFO to HKG connection to Singapore and not the SFO to ICN connection which we are on. Why didn’t I book the SFO to HKG segments?

Did any of you get so lucky with one of your flights?
