Flying Ultra-First Class – Your Own Private Suite is Just the Beginning

An experience you will never forget

Most of us can not actually say we look forward to flying. Weeping infants, crowded seats, inflight entertainment that was broken, and desperate measures to protect your knees from the frontal recliner that was dreaded.

Singapore Airlines offers something only a tiny little better than that. It is an exclusive set of high-end comforts to supply “the notable few with their own haven of tranquility.” Whether loving on demand food from a private chef, reclining in a handstitched leather armchair, sleeping on a real mattress in a doublebed, or loving a host of other baller things, this is an once in a lifetime encounter.

Derek’s used Singapore Airline’s “Book the Cook” service, which lets you preorder any meal you can envision. World class chefs prepare it and it is put on the airplane for you. Here Derek eats what seems to be a dessert made of flowers and various exotic meats.

9 courses and five glasses of Dom after, you will never need to leave
