Superb room hardware and the game viewing was as private and wild as you could possibly hope for. For the majority of our time on the game drives, it felt like we were at one with nature, totally disconnected from other human beings and the outside world.
My plan was to maintain my body clock on Asian time, whilst living and working in London. I would be visiting the gym at 4am and getting to sleep by 7pm (work permitting).
Having completed my RTW I was going to fly back to Asia
Singapore Business on the A380 is one of the very best products in the sky. The whalejet has huge side bins, wide aisles, less engine noise and notably better air quality than the 77W.
If you aren't in the mini-cabin on the 77W I'm sure you can make an argument for this being the better product.
This trip was awesome.
I went one and a half times around the world in the space of 2 weeks.
I snowboarded in Japan, hung out by the pool in LA, went to Katz's deli in NY, drank at a rooftop bar in Singapore, hung out in the world's tallest Park Hyatt in Shanghai and tried four different SQ premium cabins.
It turned out that we could connect onward to MNL from SIN in First Class with a very comfortable connection time, at no extra mileage cost. This is the longest free First Class connection route ex-Europe on Singapore Air.
