Why now is the best time to travel in the lap of luxury.
A little over a month ago, I spent an entire afternoon at the Singapore Airlines training centre not far from Changi International airport in Singapore. This visit brought me up, close and personal with the training philosophy and how this airline gets the little things right. We give you four good reasons why you must consider flying in style:
The Great Singapore Airlines Getaway: snag business class seats at approximately 20% discount. This sale ends on September 30. Aside from discounted fares, you can also enter a contest with daily prizes and a grand prize – a pair of First Class/Suites class tickets to any Singapore Airlines destination.
Among the widest seats in class: 34-inches wide, wrapped in leather and enough space to stash your stuff plus enough elbowroom for maximum privacy. The seat morphs into a fully flat bed with all the linen you need to snuggle up. (Available on the Airbus A380–800, Boeing 777–300ER, and refitted Boeing 777–200ER aircraft.) The business class seats on the Regional Business Class (Airbus A330–300, refitted Boeing 777–300, and Boeing 777–200) also feature leather seats with panels between seats for maximum privacy.
Fine dine in the sky: with SQ’s unique ‘Book the Cook’ customisable menus where you can order your main course 24 hours before your flight. Available on flights from select sectors (Including Singapore). Choose from dishes curated by master chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor and Yoshihiro Murata (from Japan).
Singapore Sling at 30,000 feet: Nothing quite beats the Singapore Sling at the iconic Raffles Hotel in Singapore where this cocktail was first invented. You don’t have to wait till you get to Singapore for your first swig of this gin-based cocktail (Yes, gin is cool again), the business class cabins do a mighty close impersonation of the real thing up in the sky.
