First-Class Travel

by Mark Ellwood


Your jet: Airbus A380

Killer app: The double suite—ideal for snuggling

Amenity you'll want to steal: The downy, soft Givenchy duvet

Ultimate itinerary: Be the first of your Centurion Card–toting chums to test out the luxuries on the A380, with service between Singapore and Sydney

Life up front: Singapore is the first airline to fly the new superjumbo A380 from Airbus. The route—between Singapore and Sydney—might be out of the typical American's way, but you may want to consider a trip just to experience that upper-class hedonism. The 12 suites were masterminded by yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste and have fully closable doors, an armchair almost three feet wide, and a separate chaise longue/visitor seat. When the oh-so-fab passengers are ready to slumber, cabin crew will make up a bed using a separate mattress—no slumming on converted seat cushions here—adorned with the Givenchy duvet and pillow. Even better, Singapore has taken advantage of the usually less-than-luxurious middle pair of seats in its new 1-2-1 configuration, allowing traveling couples the chance to snuggle down in a double bed. Ever wanted to join that illustrious club in the air? You'll never get a better (and more private) chance.

Platinum card–smashing price: Singapore to Sydney from $7,343 round-trip
