The SQ Suites is likely one of the most prestigious flight class on the planet. When it was first launched, it is the only class with a flat mattress on air. In fact, occasions have passed, and lots of other airways have provide you with their very own ?first-class beds?.
I don?t find out about different airways, but I’ll all the time take SQ suites, if I’ve the prospect again.
In this publish, I?ve documented down the complete SQ suite expertise from the beginning to the top.
Or you possibly can watch the brief video of our flight experience under!
In case you have not board the SQ suites earlier than, or going to take one soon, this submit provides you with some ideas. Take pleasure in!
Why SQ Suites?
We took the SQ Suites from Singapore to London for our honeymoon. Because it?s a honeymoon, let?s travel in type yea! I also learn on some blogs which you could?t name yourself a journey blogger, should you never took top notch earlier than. Alright, I assume we match that criteria now!
We obtained married in 2015, and we received busy with different stuff, earlier than we had time to go for our honeymoon this yr 2017. We deliberate this honeymoon again in 2016, and secured the primary class seats in late 2016.
So how?s the experience of touring like a VVIP on air?
How?s the cabin products and service?
The SQ Suites expertise isn’t just concerning the flat-bed on board, or the exquisite meals menu.
It begins from the check-in!
It has a selected drop-off point at Changi Terminal 3 for First Class passengers solely. (Tell your taxi-driver to drop you there, and never the standard departure drop-off points)
And then, you proceed to examine in. The Suites has its own exclusive check-in counter in entrance of Examine in Row 1.
Our flight is within the morning 9am, however we checked-in means earlier, at 1am. Yea, we arrive eight hours early, because we’ve got entry to the Personal Room!
The Personal Room is situated contained in the SQ lounges within the transit space, and is specially for First Class or SQ Suites passengers solely. Wow. So unique yea!
So we got this Gold access cross to enter the Personal Room, but we have been informed that will probably be closed barely before 2am. But nonetheless, we nonetheless made our method there, to expertise it for the subsequent 45min or so.
Once we arrived on the Personal Room, we have been greeted by their friendly employees, even at 1am. They don?t seemed to be drained. They handed us the menu, and yes, we will order Something on the menu. Something.
We saw Rib-eye steak, Western and Chinese language cuisine, and lots of other delicacies present in prime eating places. And we will get them organized for Free!
But hey, it?s about 1.10am.
How on earth am I going to eat a steak at 1am?
So we simply go for something mild?
like some watermelon juice (freshly squeezed for you)…
and some native desserts – cheng tng and ice jelly.
The Personal Room is basically personal.
Because there’s no other individuals aside from the two of us.
Okay… perhaps others aren’t so crazy to be consuming at 1am..
We also acquired some chips and cheese from the counters.
Plenty of food, however I attempted to management myself.
We also explored their washroom. Simply to see how luxurious it is.
Spacious and clear.
Identical to what you noticed in these 5-star lodges.
Perhaps even better, because you possibly can have?a shower too!
With towels even offered for you!
Above photograph is the lads’s washroom.
Stylish like the women’.
It?s about 2am, and the after the late supper, we needed to sleep. And there?s nothing else to do within the Personal Room as they’re closing, and only open in the morning about 6+am.
We considered resting within the top notch lounge, however all their seats are all upright seats so we will?t really lie and sleep on it.
Cozy leather-based seats, but too straight for you to take a nap.
So?the employees advised us there?s flat couch on the Business Class lounge, the place many passengers just lie there and sleep too.
So we went there to sleep.
And we came back to the Personal Room about 7am for some breakfast.
Because it?s morning, we’re hungry, we will order something we would like once more.
But, I?m reminded by Valerie that we have now breakfast on board later, by way of Ebook The Chef. Which suggests we shouldn?t had too much, or we couldn?t savour the great meals afterward board.
So we had something mild once more. Nonetheless taste good!
And fish porridge!
Time To Board!
Yay, like lastly yea!
After studying a lot concerning the flat-bed on SQ suites, we are finally to expertise it ourselves!
As SQ Suites passengers, we have been the primary to board. We’ve got by no means been so excited to board the aircraft first. In any case, so what when you board first. The aircraft solely takes off when everyone boards right?
However it?s our first time on SQ Suites!
And for this flight, our suite is specially cleaned and dressed by Annauz, who is a very pleasant air steward who served us rather well all through the flight.
We board the aircraft early, however never remorse it. In reality, we liked it!
We began getting served instantly.
They came with the towels, juices, tea, champagne, magazines, newspapers, cashew nuts, and in addition offer you a quick run by means of of all the buttons obtainable within the cabin.
We also begin fidgeting around to see what there around us.
We have now a Bose earphone every for our inflight leisure.
And a Salvatore Ferragamo vainness package.
But you understand what? I don’t even know what are these bottles and tubes! (sorry bro, i’m not a branded individual).
Nonetheless, these are mine. I’ll find out how to use them 🙂
The flight is about 13 hours long.
Shortly after the aircraft take off, we had our first meal, the breakfast!
We ordered by way of ‘Book The Cook’ days ago and we had waffles as the primary course, together with many little sides, like croissants, cereals, yoghurt, fruits (cherries, oranges, banana, rock melon).
After breakfast, we have been handed a set of pyjamas.
I heard this is only obtainable for Suites!
So we modified to our PJ instantly.
We felt so free within the delicate PJ, that we needed to sleep soon.
So we requested for the crew to help us arrange the bed.
And in much less the 1min…
The bed is up!
That’s the world’s well-known bed of SQ Suites!
We closed the doorways, pull down the shutters, and sleep.
And we slept about 6 hours straight.
6 hours is concerning the flight from Singapore to Beijing.
And what occurs once we awakened?
And that is in all probability probably the most beautiful menu we ever had on air.
By way of ‘Book The Chef’, we ordered Lobster Thermidor, however many starters came first earlier than the primary course arrive.
First the satay. It’s scorching and crispy.
Then a salad bowl…
Fish maw soup…
Lastly the Lobster!
And that’s how we now have our lunch on the ‘bed’.
After which the dessert…
Forgotten the names, but keep in mind they?are scrumptious.
What a superb dining experience right?
Exactly like those 10-course meal at a fantastic eating restaurant.
What?s so special about SQ Suites
I don?t assume I want to describe how good the SQ Suites is. Because it?s the First of the First Class seats, all the things is actually good. I?m not likely good with bombastic phrases, but I will just use simple words to describe how we enjoy the suites.
1. First Class service.
In fact, right? Service undoubtedly has to be good as we are on the Suites degree already. However I assume the service is sweet not simply due to Suites, however because SQ service is all the time good regardless of which class you?re in. I haven?t encountered a poor service yet.
2. They do their greatest to fulfil your wants, every time.
Once we?re watching films, they’ll convey a tray of snacks (chips, candies, fruits?and so on) for you to go together with it.
Once you just awakened from your nap, they usually hear you cough, they make you a cup of ginger lemon tea to sooth your throat if you got here out of the toilet.
Whenever you develop into the pyjamas, they allow you to grasp your garments. If you change again, in the event you just like the pyjamas, they make it easier to fold into a bag so you’ll be able to convey out. If not, you possibly can return to them.
If you press ?don’t disturb?, they gained?t disturb you, even for those who miss the meal hours. However when you don?t, they may hold popping by your seat with meals and drinks.
Chips, nuts, champagne, juices, buns, fruits, no matter they’ve. They only maintain serving and serving. I wouldn?t complain once they disturb me with?good meals.
These little actions of service makes your flight so pleasant (eh, is that the SQ tagline?)
3. The flat mattress makes the whole trip snug
The flat bed isn’t just for sleeping. It?s like your personal bed within the air. You sleep, you watch movie, you eat, you learn? you are able to do something you need on the bed. Plus, you’ve gotten a couple of pillows right here and there to make you are feeling commutable too.
After our breakfast, we nap for six hours and awakened for our lunch. This nap is so a lot better than the nap on the Business Class lounge sofa the night time earlier.
If you would like to attempt the Suites, just get it for lengthy haul flights (>10 hours) so you possibly can absolutely expertise what sleeping on board seems like.
four. Fast Cross for premium clients only
We additionally received this pink ‘fast track’ cross where we will use once we alight at London Heathrow airport, so we will clear the immigration quick.
Identical to some VVIP.
How to get the Suites?
Once we took the SQ Suites, we had many associates asking how can we do it.
The SQ Suites is seen as a premium cabin product, and it?s not low cost. Should you do a search, a one-way SQ suite ticket value virtually $9,000 SGD.
After which both of us took the Suites, which suggests it might value us $18,000 SG for this 13-hour flight to London!
That?s virtually a 6-month pay for a recent grad!
So did we pay $18,000 for this SQ suites to London?
Of Course NO LA!
Perhaps some rich youngsters can pay cash. But we aren’t rich youngsters.
Even if we’ve the cash, we gained?t spurge $18,000 on a flight.
As an alternative, we use miles.
We saved about 1-2 years of miles for this SQ Suites experience.
Earning and amassing miles is one of the simplest ways for us to expertise the SQ Suites.
This Miles factor is an entire new ballgame itself, with many various ways to earn and acquire miles.
