Getting tired of flying cattle class?
Entrepreneur and engineer Derek Low splashed out and cashed in enough miles for a $18,400 "golden ticket" to travel from Singapore to New York City in Singapore Airlines' Suites Class.
On his website, he describes dining on champagne and baked Boston lobster in the Private Room before boarding, and being served Dom Perignon on board after being escorted to his middle suite. And the suite, was just oh, so nice.
“With round-trip tickets costing up to S$23,000 (or US$18,400), it was completely unattainable for most people. Formerly, the only way for an average person to fly in the Suites was to take out a bank loan. And then I remembered that most of my personal net worth exists in frequent flier miles rather than cash,” he wrote.
In 2008, Singapore Airlines introduced Suites Class, one of the most luxurious class of flying that is commercially available. Exclusive to their flagship Airbus A380 planes, they have enclosed private cabins with sliding doors, 5-star amenities and service that puts travelers in the lap of luxury.
