Singapore Airlines' third London flight goes A380 in June

Singapore Airlines will upgrade a third Singapore-London return flight to the Airbus A380 from June 1, when the daily SQ308/319 service swaps from a Boeing 777-300ER to the A380 -- bringing all the airline's Heathrow flights up to the superjumbo standard.

SQ308 leaves Singapore at 0905, arriving in London at 1530. The plane then departs Heathrow as SQ319 at 1830, arriving back in Singapore at 1420.

If you've got tickets booked on this flight, make sure you've picked the best seats for your now A380-enhanced journey using our best seat guides to the A380's all-business class upper deck cabin or the business class version with economy at the back upstairs.

Business class passengers can look forward to the quieter, more exclusive A380 upper deck. The seats are the same popular fully flat beds as the 777-300ER, in a 1-2-1 configuration that gives direct aisle access to everyone in the cabin.

There'll be more business class seats on offer too, up from 42 on the 777-300ER to either 60 or 86 on the A380, depending on whether Singapore Airlines uses its all-business class upper deck superjumbos.

Aviation journalist and travel columnist John took his first long-haul flight when he was eight weeks old and hasn't looked back since. Well, except when facing rearwards in business class.
