Singapore Airlines is offering a very good fare (by Singapore Airlines standards) for travel between Stockholm and Singapore in its Airbus A350 Business Class cabin. With Singapore Airlines Business Class flights earning 200% credit with Alaska Mileage Plan, 150% credit with Miles & More and 125% credit with Virgin Atlantic this could be a great fare to use to boost one of your accounts.
We've known for a while that Singapore Airlines plans on using its new A350-900 ultra long-range aircraft to fly non-stop between Singapore and Los Angeles but, up until now, there hasn't been any news from the airline. That changed today with the latest announcement out of Singapore.
Ever since Airbus first said that it would build an A350 Ultra Long Range aircraft Singapore Airlines has said that it would like to go back to offering a non-stop service between Singapore and New York (it last flew this route in 2013) and now, finally, it has done just that.
Singapore Airlines has just taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner and the airline has now revealed the cabins passengers can expect to find onboard. The 787-10 aircraft are configured with 337 seats across two classes (no First Class or Premium economy on this aircraft) and will operate on Singapore Airlines flights of up to 8 hours.
Singapore Airlines has confirmed that the second destination it will serve with its new 787-10 Dreamliner will be Perth in Western Australia. The airline will be the first in the world to offer the stretch-Dreamliner when it add it to the Singapore - Osaka route from 3 May 2018 and Perth won't be far behind as Singapore Airlines sends its new aircraft to Western Australia from 7 May 2018.
Last year I reviewed the Singapore A380 Suites experience on a regional flight between Hong Kong and Singapore but, while that was a very nice experience, it was the true long-haul experience in Singapore Suites that I've looked forward to trying out for some time. Singapore Airlines doesn't yet offer its new Suites Class on the Singapore - London route (that's coming on 16 February 2018) so the A380 that we flew in was equipped with the original suites....and these are the Suites that most Singapore A380s will offer for quite some time.
News that Lufthansa is eliminating First Class from two routes to the US (at least for summer 2018), news of a new Hilton opening in a beautiful part of Europe, details of an Emirates schedule change which sees an extension to the cut in service to New York and news that Singapore Airlines has scheduled its new A380 on its routes to London and Hong Kong.
Singapore Airlines has announced that it will be introducing new fare types, changing its fees surrounding award redemptions and tweaking the number of miles its flyers earn from 20 January 2018. Unusually for an airline making these kinds of changes not all the news is bad and how you view these changes will definitely depend on what type fares you book and how often you incur fees on award bookings.
Last Thursday Singapore Airline finally revealed what it plans to do with the cabins on its new Airbus A380s and, while a lot of focus has been on the new Suites Class product (which I took a look at on Friday), today I thought I'd take a critical look at the new Business Class seats on the Singapore Airlines A380.
Yesterday I was traveling and, because airlines somehow just know when I have almost no internet access and therefore can’t post much, Singapore Airlines revealed its new A380 Suites Class product to the world. I managed to post the images Singapore Airlines has released but I also promised a more in-depth look and my thoughts on the new product….so here those are.
