UPDATED Even more leaked photos of new Singapore Airlines First Class Suites. Squeal!

UPDATED Even more leaked photos of new Singapore Airlines First Class Suites. Squeal!

Well, it’s hard to keep a secret these days. Just ask Apple.

Singapore Airlines is set to announce on 2 November their new cabins to be installed on the next delivery of A380s which will start servicing Sydney next year. Except someone on FlyerTalk already did – you can still see the protective plastic on the carpet.

Suites move to upper deck

We were promised a complete refresh, and a move of the Suites from downstairs to upstairs. In fact, people have been trying to work out the configuration based on shots of the unpainted aircraft and its upper-deck window configuration, through to a misplaced image on their booking engine. (keep reading below the image – and to the UPDATE for the link to more leaked photos!)

Leaked photos

But Jaffar over at FlyerTalk has published images that actually purport to be the real thing – well at least two pictures of a mockup.

They look sensational. Like a mini bed-sit (that’s a studio apartment to my America cousins).

I am excited – but having only traveled on their current product this year – I wonder how couples will handle this new configuration – doesn’t look like the old ‘double bed’ has been retained. Mind you, it wasn’t really a double bed. Where those bolster cushions are in the image below, there is a big old fat divider, that would wreck anybody’s back of erotic intent. I liked the suites idea, but not the execution. It surprised me, but I liked the more open configuration of Qantas First.

I take it back about the double bed. Check out these additional images

Media Launch Details

Ok – if you are in Singapore on the 2nd, you might want to try and wangle an invitation to this:

  • Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre
  • the launch begins at 9.45am with an opening address by SQ CEO, who will then unveil the new cabin products
  • Q&A to follow through to 10.45am
  • 10.45am onwards, media can crawl all over the new suites and seats

Lets hope they keep up the caviar service.

Well – we only have two images of the new First Suites – we still need the details of what facilities are available and how it all works, and the new Business, and Premium Economy. So I guess they still have something to announce on 2nd November.
