According to the Skytrax Awards, Singapore Airlines was voted World’s Best Airline and Best in First Class in 2018. I was very excited to fly Singapore Airlines for my first time. My flight was from Singapore (SIN) to Beijing (PEK) flight number SQ 802. You can watch my full trip report below.
The Private Room
I was escorted to the Private Room when I checked into the Singapore Airlines First Class lounge. Since I never flown on Singapore Airlines, I didn’t know The Private Room existed. It was definitely a nice surprise. My waiter poured me a glass of 2009 Dom Perignon and orange juice. For my breakfast, I chose to get the mango french toast. The French toast was soft in the middle and slightly crispy on the outside.
Singapore Airlines First Class doesn’t have any overhead bins as the suites take all the room in the cabin. You can easily store your carry-on luggage underneath the front seat. There is another side compartment next to your seat to put a purse or a briefcase as well.
Food and Beverage
Travelers flying First Class on Singapore Airlines can “Book the Cook”, a service you can pre-order your meals in advance. I decided to get the lobster because I’ve never had lobster on a plane. The lobster was very fresh and it melted right into my mouth.
The Bald Thoughts
Overall, the First Class experience was amazing. I understand now why Singapore is ranked number one in the world. It was the attention to detail that made Singapore Airlines stand apart from other airlines I’ve flown on. For example, the flight attendant walking to me on the bridge to welcome me on the plane. 5 flight attendants came to me during pre-boarding introducing themselves and started a conversation with me.
