At 1130 PM (almost two hours after take-off) the meal trays were collected and a wine (port) gourmet cheese fruit and cracker service commenced followed by desert and tea. I opted for the Cherimoya Mousse in a Chocolate Cup which was delightful. Very decadent and was enjoyed by all the surrounding passengers! There were extras of the Chocolate Cup available and passengers were offered a second helping. We politely declined. Desert and tea service continued until midnight and cabin lights were dimmed at 1210 AM for several hours of sleeping.
Singapore Airlines has quietly upped its game to create a "super-first class" for well-to-do travellers. Its line of Airbus A380 double-decker planes now boast fully enclosed private suites designed by Jean-Jacques Coste who is better known for his range of luxury yachts. There are 12 of these private suites per plane each with a leather seat and separate full-size bed complete with Givenchy-designed duvets and cushions. The two middle suites can be transformed into double accommodation for couples.
At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
