Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new luxury first class suites where high-flying passengers will spend almost £10,000 travelling one way.
The airline has kitted out private pods on its massive Airbus A380 planes with double beds, designer duvets and 32-inch entertainment screens.
The plush features were added following a $850 (£638m) million revamp which will include 471 seats altogether across four classes on the aircraft which consist of six Suites, 78 Business Class seats, 44 Premium Economy Class seats and 343 Economy Class seats.
But as you might have guessed, the super-exclusive suites don’t come cheap.
One first class ticket from Sydney to Singapore costs passengers an eye-watering £9,500.
The beds – even the double version – stow flat, leaving passengers to relax in their Poltrona Frau leather armchairs, and stretch their legs in what almost amounts to a boutique hotel room.
Business class fliers will also get an upgrade, with space-age style pods providing more privacy than more standard configurations, and lie flat beds.
“The significant investment that we are making with the introduction of new cabin products demonstrates our commitment to continued investment in products and services, our long-term approach to ensure we retain our leadership position, and our confidence in the future of premium full-service air travel,” said Singapore Airlines CEO Mr Goh Choon Phong.
“The new cabin products are the culmination of four years of work, involving extensive customer research and close partnerships with our designers and suppliers.
“We are confident that the results will genuinely ‘wow’ our customers, and ensure that we continue to provide them an unparalleled travel experience.”
