Singapore Airlines' unveils bedroom in the sky in Airbus A380

These capacious suites on the Airlines A380 will rival those of Emirates, Etihad Airways, and rivals from Middle Eastern in order to crown for the world's top class first class, But only exception from them is Singapore Airlines has chosen in not installing any shower facility.

The suites come with a 21-inch wide leather chair upholstered by Italian furniture maker Poltrona Frau.

There is another important feature in the suites i.e. the central divider between the rooms can be taken away to create a spacious room with a double bed for couples travelling together.

After the planned revamp, the seat count in the Singapore Airlines A380s - which it flies to destinations like Sydney, London and Hong Kong - will rise by as much as 24 percent to 471 as the airline makes better use of the aircraft's space without reducing the size of economy class seats.

With the unveiling of the new cabin products, SIA's A380s will feature six luxury suites and 78 business-class seats on the upper deck, as well as 44 premium-economy-class seats and 343 economy-class seats on the main deck.

"The significant investment that we are making with the introduction of new cabin products demonstrates our commitment to continued investment in products and services, our long-term approach to ensure we retain our leadership position, and our confidence in the future of premium full-service air travel", Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong said.

Retrofit work will start in late 2018 on the 14 existing A380 aircraft that will be fitted with the new products, with all scheduled for completion in 2020.

The new cabins are the result of four years of painstaking design and development, costing $850 million.

The 126 added seats will surely mean more profits for the airline, but it also could mean that fares will decrease since there will be more of a surplus.

Premium economy dining looks pretty impressive as well. In particular, Flynn says Singapore's suites have since been mimicked "by Emirates and most impressively Etihad Airways".

In a not too surprising move, one airline has made a decision to do away with the cushy first class seats and replace them with more tight rows of economy class.

The Economy Class seat, designed and built by RECARO, offers more space and greater comfort through an improved design. In addition, the seats are equipped with a 13.3 inch HD screen and noise-cancelling headphones. Leveraging on advanced technology and ergonomics, seats offer more legroom and back support, with a six-way adjustable headrest with foldable wings. The seats are configured in a 3-4-3 design.

Singapore Airlines now has five new A380s on order that will sport the new seating.

An 11.1-inch (28.19cm) touchscreen monitor eliminates the need for handsets, capitalising on its award-winning in-flight entertainment system, KrisWorld.
