Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 launches luxurious ‘super-first’ class cabins
Traveling by air sounds comforting and lavish too but ask those who travel frequently or who actually live out of bags while jet-setting from one city/country to another. Stiff neck, lack of sleep, back-ache are few of the complaints you get to hear. But Singapore Airlines is persistently working on providing essential human comforts for travelers who are ready to shell out a little more. The latest from them is that they have announced the launch of the new ‘super-first’ class on the Airbus A380 double decker. These fully enclosed private suites have been designed by famous yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste. He has seen to it that each suite will be equipped with a leather seat and a full-sized bed with mattress. The two middle suites can be further transformed into doubles for couples. No mushy thoughts please! Travelers can also look forward for a 23-inch flat-screen TV, with a choice of 100 films and 180 TV programs, and 700 CDs.
In all, the A380 will have 471 seats, the 12 suites, 60 in business class and 399 in economy. But passengers will have to pay £1,991 ($ 4,000) for a suite for one-way between Singapore to Sydney. Economy-class passengers in the A380 would pay £320 ($640) for the same journey. We all know that luxury does come for a price!
