Trip Report: Singapore Airlines Business Class SQ833 A380-800 - PVG to SIN (Shanghai to Singapore)

My flight from Shanghai to Singapore was on a relatively new plane (9V-SKU) and as you would imagine, the Business Class cabin features the new cabin products. The Business Class seats have 55" of seat pitch and 30" of seat width - this is fairly similar to what the previous Business Class product on the A380-800 offers but strangely enough, I know a handful of people who actually prefer the previous product for sleeping.

Lounge Review: Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge - Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)

When I flew back from Bangkok last weekend, I took the opportunity to check out the the SilverKris Lounge at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK). The Singapore Airlines lounge which opened back in May 2017 is one of the most highly-rated SQ airport lounges in the region so I was actually pretty excited to check it out personally. There is a lack of signage in my opinion so if you are having trouble locating the lounge, it is actually located near to Gate D7.

Trip Report: Singapore Airlines Business Class SQ942 787-10 - SIN to DPS (Singapore to Denpasar)

The Regional Business Class product of Singapore Airlines is one that is often talked about - the 1-2-1 cabin configuration offers direct aisle-access for every single seat and the lie-flat seats are definitely comfortable enough for a medium-haul flight. Even though I have experienced this previously on the delivery flight from Charleston to Singapore, I have not actually flown it for leisure. On my latest trip to Bali, I decided to book flight SQ942 which is operated by the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner.

Lounge Review: Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge - Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL)

One of the many perks with traveling on Business Class is the airport lounge access that you get before your flight - some of these are impressive like The Private Room in Changi Airport (when you fly First Class or Suites with Singapore Airlines) or the Cathay Pacific Lounge in Haneda Airport. On the other hand, some airport lounges are disappointing and lacklustre - the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is one such example.
