‘World’s best plane seat’ comes with small hotel rooms and champagne on tap

If you fancy a bit of luxury, why not book a seat with Singapore Airlines?

The company won The Airline Ratings' First Class Award 2019 for its latest experience which features a series of "suite" class cabins.

Each seat, which costs an eye-watering £5,000, is designed to be like small hotel rooms.

Travel expert Jean Arnas, from The Points Guy UK, boarded the airline to get an idea of what the cabins offer.

Boarding the Airbus A380 at London Heathrow, the expert said he was led into one of six suites on the plane, where he would spend the next 13 hours before landing in Singapore.

Inside the luxurious cabin was a bed, television and a wardrobe "big enough to fit a person inside".

Speaking to MailOnline, Jean said: "The space is completely surreal. Having 50 square feet onboard feels super luxurious. And because I had no neighbour next to me, they also gave me the other half, so I had 100 square feet to myself."

Jean, who was seated in 1A, was treated to "fancy salmon and caviar", as well as beverages like Dom Perignon and Krug Champagne.

Jean said: "There is not a public area to relax in, like the bar that Emirates and Etihad have on the same A380 aircraft, or 'The Loft' on Virgin.

"There are no showers like on the Emirates A380 and Eithad A380. The toilet is really nice but a shower takes things to an outrageous next level."

And when it comes the the price, Jean said you can pay the £5,000 – or if you have air miles and you're starting your flight in Asia, you can get a trip for as little as £19.
