Singapore Airlines Bringing Popular In-Flight 'Hotel' Suites To U.S. Routes
Like many upscale foreign airline carriers, Singapore Airlines is leveling up and bringing US-based passengers a taste of the good life.
The Asian airline company recently announced it would bring its popular A380 planes with in-flight suites to its New York (JFK)-Frankfurt (FRA)-Singapore (SIN) flights effective March 27, 2022.
According to The Points Guy: the planes have six suites “enclosed with a door and feature a swivel chair along with a separate bed. As with the product’s earlier generation, two suites can be combined to create a double bed, offering two traveling companions up to100 square feet of space. Each suite features a 32-inch HD monitor loaded with Singapore’s award-winning KrisWorld inflight entertainment system.”
“After nearly two years of restrictions, we are seeing tremendous demand for international travel, and that includes premium cabins,” Joey Seow, Singapore’s regional VP – Americas, said in a statement. “In addition to a new Business Class, we’re excited to bring our newest, most luxurious Suite cabin to U.S. travelers for the first time, offering a new standard in comfort aboard the world’s largest aircraft.”
While excited about the luxury offering, Black travelers also had a few jokes about the new in-flight suites.
Popular Black travel influencer @cedtripping jokingly said in his Instagram stories: “Ohhhh if you want us knocking boots in the air, just say that.”
He also posed a question about the airline’s new business class seats that can be transformed into a double bed.
“I wonder if they will let people cuddle in these seats?”
The post is making its way around IG as many contemplate the idea of joining the Mile High Club for the first time when this new plane is introduced.
As we reported, a private jet company based in Las Vegas has created an experience just for this, and from couples’ reviews, it is ‘the best they’ve ever had.’
