IN FLIGHT: Singapore Airlines


The plane

A380-800, flying Sydney to Singapore.


Business class, seat 94D.

The seat

The well-cushioned seat with a wrap-around shell means there’s privacy but for those travelling as a couple the middle seats in the 1-2-1 configuration can have the privacy screen lowered and covert to a double fully flat bed. A flight attendent can be called to set the bed up for hours of slumber. There’s ample storage space for carry-on items as well as port and plugs to power electronic devices. Complimentary access to the SilverKris lounge is provided to those travelling in business class, which makes a big difference when you’re heading on to Europe like we were.


An 18-inch touchscreen monitor in high definition paired with noise-cancelling headphones and over 1,000 entertainment options means there’s no shortage of choice available. Want to catch up on your social media feeds? There’s a complimentary 30mb download limit with packages available to purchase to increase download limits.

Service and food

Guests can personalise their dinnertime via the Book the Cook meal and choose from a selection of dining options ranging from classic and sumptuous Asian dishes through to modern western cuisine. A flight attendant dresses your table with careful placement of porcelain dinnerware. There’s an extensive list of champagne, wine or cocktails to be paired with each meal.
