World's Biggest Aeroplane Introduces Double Beds
Luxury cabins will return to the skies this month with the launch of a new 'super-first' class on the Airbus A380 double decker.
Singapore Airlines, which took delivery of the first of 19 A380s in Toulouse today, revealed that the planes will have 12 private suites for its top paying passengers - meaning its never been so easy to join the Mile High Club.
Services start on the Singapore-Sydney route on 25 October, with a London to Singapore service to be introduced early next year.
Each suite contains a leather seat and a full-sized bed with mattress. Unlike many airline 'flat beds' no part of the seat converts into the bed. The bed will be made up by cabin crew with Givenchy-designed duvets and cushions. The two middle suites can be converted into doubles for couples.
Entertainment is provided through a 23-inch flat-screen TV, with a choice of 100 films and 180 TV programmes, and 700 CDs.
