Singapore Airlines to attract more luxury business travels has introduced new first-class cabin on the Airbus A380 which will be in service from December 2017. Retrofit work will also take place on 14 existing aircraft of Singapore Airlines. This is the new first class on the upper deck of the aircraft will have six suites, each with a sliding door.
Each of the suite is furnished with a separate full-flat bed with adjustable recline and a plush leather chair.
The leather seats are planned by Poltrona Frau. These seats are adjustable using an electronic control side panel.
Singapore Airlines also planned for couples traveling together. The beds in the first two suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed. When not in use, the bed can be stowed completely, creating even more personal space within each suite.
Each suite has a 32-inch full HD monitor that can spin for the different viewing angles in seat and bed modes, a full-sized personal wardrobe, a handbag stowage compartment, amenity box lined with soft leather and a wall with mood lighting.
In the upper deck of the aircraft there are about 78 seats in business class, also upholstered by Poltrona Frau.
The seats in the new business class cabin are approved in a forward-facing, four-abreast (1-2-1) configuration that offers all customers direct access to the aisle.
The shell on every seat creates feeling of privacy. The center divider of the seats can be fully lowered to form double beds, making the two center seats ideal for customers traveling together.
The research, design, development and installation of new products on 19 Singapore Airlines A380s represent an investment of about $850 million.
