Now, for the second part of the trip – the flight back from Melbourne. SQ 217 let her try a day time flight with the full service while SQ 218 allows her to try out the sleeping overnight in the Suites.
Total miles burnt was 160,000 miles per person for return (pre-January devaluation).
Melbourne is one of the location with a dedicated First Class Lounge. Here are some of the pictures:

My partner, AF recently traveled to Melbourne with her hubby on their maiden flight on SQ Suites. Being their first trip in Suites, they had lots of fun (not to mention food) even before they step foot onto the plane!
Here are some pictures from their flight:

I decided to put this up first as I felt that this review deserved the priority. I was initially booked on Business Class on both legs (SQ 618 and SQ 619) but 1.5 weeks out, Suites on the SQ 619 was still available and after some thoughts, I decided to make the plunge given the special nature of this trip (and giving in to my weak spot for Suites). I guess it was well worth it! What I experienced on this flight was a total contrast to my anniversary flight on SQ 308 last year.

After a hiatus, lets hear it again from CHC on his most recent trip on SQ F to PVG on the 77WR (using the 2013 F cabin, but spotting just 4 instead of 8 seats).

This is my 5th Suites flight in 6 years, the first 2 being regional (SQ866 and SQ802) followed by 2 long hauls (both SQ26 in 2015 and 2017) and now SQ308.

The emergence of Airbus A380 opened up many possibilities for airlines to configure their planes, once impossible. We have Singapore Airlines with their Suites, Etihad with their Residence and Apartment and Emirates with their on board shower. These special classes can be configured to be on either level 1 or 2 (although Airbus prefers it to be on level 2). Qatar houses its First Class cabin on the upper deck, with only 8 seats. It has a very generous 83” pitch but with only 23” of width. Unlike Singapore Airlines / Emirates or Etihad, Qatar Airways uses open suite. They have an on-board bar in between First and Business Class cabin (this is not something unique and is available on both Emirates and Etihad A380).

After a 24 hours flight on the majestic A380 in the venerable Suites class, it is back to reality for my next segment. Most of the short haul flights to Canada from New York originates from LGA. As I am connecting in JFK, I am down to 2 choices: Delta vs American. I opted for Delta mainly for the ease of connection (both Delta and Singapore Airlines operate out of Terminal 4).

I was quite lucky to be able to score another pair of Suites on SQ26 (which I guess could be the last as well). Suites / First class to North America is getting harder to come by (despite the recent devaluation). Instead of doing another post on SQ26 / Singapore Airlines Suites, I will focus on the difference from my previous flight. Paid about $900 for both tickets (compared to almost $1200 back in 2015).

I made a booking from Singapore to Tokyo with a connection to Sapporo as I would join up with my parents for a Hokkaido trip. Instead of flying from Malaysia, I decided to fly from Singapore on Singapore Airlines to Tokyo and connect domestically to Sapporo via ANA (using the very attractive domestic ANA pricing for tourist).
I had a choice of either doing the SQ 636 (which I chose) vs. SQ632. SQ636 have been flying on 77WN (which I have wanted to try last year on SQ1 but I didn’t manage to redeem it.) Being a night flight, it offered only a supper service (truncated meal service). SQ632, being a morning flight offered a full lunch service but is being served by the older 77W. After much consideration, I chose SQ636 for the sake of trying out 77WN.
SQ636 has been served mainly using 77WN (9V-SWU, SWV, SWY) but there was once the flight was served by SWF (data from flight radar 24). Although there is a small chance that a bird swap may occur, most of the flights were using 77WN.
