The A380 flight and suite dream..

It was nice to finally fly on the A380 after hearing so much about it and while it largely justified the hype, I was reminded of a recent addition to my ‘101 things to do before I die’ list..

I generally go down to the SIA office in Chennai to meet two friends I made before I flew to Singapore on the SIA-NOL scholarship. And one of them showed me pictures of the A380 suites – for the first time ever on a flight, passengers could have a whole cabin to themselves with a comfortable chair, bed, television and practically anything else they desired. Here is a a picture –

(There’s a chair right behind which is not in view. Can be seen better in this video)

This comes at a cost, of course. A 12 hour trip from Singapore to London’s costs about S$ 24,000 (only).

So, here’s to doing this sometime soon.. ;)

And on flight, one of our air hostesses was a real dynamo when it came to customer service. It was a fitting reminder of why a person pays so much to travel by Singapore Airlines..

Customer service – now there’s an idea!
