Derek Low takes us on a photographic tour of what it is like to fly Singapore airlines in their $23,000 suite. Everything, including the ameneties, are over-the-top, yet tastefully done. And what you see above is a full sized bed. That's right, a full sized bed, on a plane, high above the clouds.
In 2008, Singapore Airlines introduced their Suites Class, the most luxurious class of flying that is commercially available.
The Suites were exclusive to their flagship Airbus A380, and they go beyond flat beds by offering enclosed private cabins with sliding doors that cocoon you in your own little lap of luxury. The interior was designed by French luxury yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste and comes along with a plush soft leather armchair hand-stitched by the Italian master craftsmen Poltrona Frau. Perhaps most well-known of all, Singapore Airlines became the first and only commercial airline with a double bed in the sky.
