Singapore Airlines is set to make life sweeter for Brisbane's business travellers as the Star Alliance member shifts all four of its daily Brisbane-Singapore flights onto its latest Airbus A350 jets.
The move comes as Singapore Airlines notches up 35 years of flights to the Queensland capital, but passengers won't have to experience a retro-blast from the past when they step onto the advanced A350s.
What they will get on all four Airbus A350 flights: wide and quite private seats with direct access to the aisle, a 76" (1.93m) fully-flat bed, large video screens, ample personal space with handy shelves, nooks and cubby-holes, inflight Internet, and some of the finest meals above the clouds, including the optional and highly-recommended Book the Cook service for an added dash of variety.
That all-A350 play comes into effect on Wednesday 1 May 2019, when flight SQ265/SQ266 is upgraded from the older Boeing 777-200.
Three of Singapore Airlines' four Brisbane-Singapore flights will feature A350s decked out with the medium-range business class seat...
... while the fourth – that being SQ245/SQ246 – features the more familiar long-range business class seat.
The arrival of new Airbus A350 and Boeing 787-10 jets into the Singapore Airlines fleet will see older Boeing 777-200 jets steadily moved out of Australian skies.
