Goodbye Singapore Airlines First Class… for now

Singapore Airlines has operated its final planned passenger flight with a First Class cabin from Changi. For the next few months, service tops out at Business Class.

When SQ326 from Singapore to Frankfurt lifted off at 11:56 this morning, it marked an unusual temporary suspension for the airline. For all of SIA’s planned departures from Changi between now and September 2020, the passenger experience tops out at Business Class, as Boeing 777s become dedicated to cargo-only flights and Airbus A380s remain mothballed.

Additionally, only two of the airline’s five Business Class cabins will remain in service until at least August 2020 – good news for those of you who actively avoid the older 2006 and 2009 seats.


What’s happening?

You’ll be pleased to know Singapore Airlines isn’t ripping out the First Class seats and Suites from its aircraft, but instead from today it has opted to dedicate its passenger flights for June and July 2020 across three aircraft variants, the Airbus A350 (3-class), Airbus A350 Regional and Boeing 787-10.
