A380-800 (SQ)

I came back to Hong Kong with the biggest airplane in the world -A380 of Singapore Airlines. Since they renovated 800 seats to 471 seats, business class seats are big (with 60 seats). This is more comfortable than usual first class seat. They don’t call it first class but it is suite class which is above business class with only 12 seats. Among those 12 seats, two seats can be used as a double. Singapore and Hong Kong took only 3 hours but I made the seat full-flat and slept. The seat was a bit hard but it was more comfortable than the previous first class. Ipod can be connected to the wide screen. I heard that they would fly Milan direct so I want to fly through Singapore. I think it is not very good to pursue comfort too much but Air France and British Airways ordered for 206 sets of A380 airplanes. Singapore Airlines has 6 sets of A380. It is a good news for me for my travel.
