Singapore Airlines unveiled the new cabins for its Airbus A380 aircraft. Included in the changes will be new seats in first, business, premium economy and economy classes.
The biggest and most innovative changes are to the first class cabin. Originally, the airline flew its A380s with 12 first class suites, however, there will only be six suites after the refresh. These six suites feature fully flat beds and separate leather recliners allowing, passengers to recline their seat without it turning into a bed.
The suites also feature 32-inch HD screens for in-flight entertainment. The screens are motorized so that they can be viewed from different viewing angles from either the chair or bed. Furthermore, the 70 percent increase in suite sizes allows the airline to pack in more storage options. First class passengers can now fit an entire standard-size carry-on within the closet that is provided in the suite.
