It was time to embark on our journey aboard the Singapore Airlines A380 in Suites Class. Suites Class is Singapore Airline’s First Class tier aboard their Airbus A380 where all the seats in the cabin are suites. If you want to read about the planning process for this flight and how we managed to get seats in the Suites Class, you can read my previous post on it here.
There is more than 1 way to pick a destination. Sometimes you just feel like going to a certain country and sometimes a flight deal appears for a place you’ve never been to and want to check out. This time, I picked a destination based on airline’s flight cabin. And it was Singapore Airline’s suites class. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s basically Singapore Airline’s first class on certain routes aboard their Airbus A380. You get your own fully enclosed suite from floor to almost the ceiling for maximum privacy. My initial impression of it after hearing about it was that it was out of my reach. But after learning that it can be booked on miles, I realized that it was no longer unattainable and I went to work to figure out how I can book a flight in the suites class.
In a previous post, I had written about booking a first class flight for our next trip to Korea and Japan. And then, it came time for us to embark on our journey. As travelers who have ever only flown economy class, we were very excited to experience a flight in the first class cabin. And we were going to be aboard an Airbus A380.
After deciding which countries to visit, it’s time to find and book the flights. The countries we are visiting this time around are South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and Macau. Since I’m the one in charge of picking airlines and flights, I got right on it and started looking for flights to those countries. I decided that the flight path for us was going to be JFK (New York) -> ICN (Seoul) -> NRT (Tokyo) -> HKG (Hong Kong) -> JFK (New York).
