The Suite

The newest Singapore Airlines ‘Suites’ product, 2017 R was launched in November 2017 on the latest batch of Airbus A380 aircraft and introduced on flights to Sydney the following month.

There are six suites in total located in the forward upper deck section of the A380 in a 1-1 configuration separated by a single aisle.

We attended the launch event and saw the seat first hand, an impressive and spacious product with the option for two of the suites to be combined into an even larger space with a ‘double bed’ setup in the middle.

Each suite features a separate seat and bed so you can easily switch between sleeping and lounging or dining.

How to know if your flight has 2017 R

You’ll have to be travelling on a Singapore Airlines A380 in ‘First / Suites’ which displays the following seat map:

If the seat map on an A380 instead shows a 1-2-1 layout in this cabin, you have the older (but still very impressive) 2006 R (Suites) product.
