Singapore Airlines brings back their most luxurious Airbus A380 back to New York. The plane that Singapore Airlines used for their JFK-Frankfurt-Singapore service, highlighted their 6 ultra-spacious first-class suites, each of which offers separate recliner seats and beds as well as a sliding door for privacy.

The passengers who are travelling together can also purchase adjoining suites and combine them, and in so doing turn their single bed into a shared twin.

The other premium features that this luxurious first class suite offers it passengers are wardrobe closet, a handbag storage compartment, a 32-inch entertainment screen and automatic window shades, which can be closed in a blackout mode or closed in an intermediate setting that allows some light through.

After the plane had landed at New York, Singapore Airlines spokesperson James Boyd said that the design of the suites was created to slowly reveal itself over the course of the flight. He says that they took something simple like magazine racks and turned them into a luxury item.

The company currently has a dozen A380s in its fleet. They first flew this particular configuration in 2017 but not in the U.S. In addition to the six suites, the plane is equipped with 78 lie-flat business-class seats, 44 premium economy seats and 343 economy seats.

They used the pandemic to retrofit its additional A380 planes into the new configuration. Until Sunday, Singapore Airlines had been flying the JFK-Frankfurt-Singapore route with an Airbus A350 or a Boeing 777 since resuming the route in November following a 20-month Covid hiatus.   

Along with using a larger aircraft on its JFK-Frankfurt-Singapore service, the carrier added a new daily nonstop flight to Singapore from Newark on Monday. Those two additions, together with Singapore’s daily nonstop Airbus A350 service out of JFK, now have the airline flying well in excess of its pre-pandemic capacity from the New York area.
