Bay Area LIFE: Singapore Airlines introduces a new way to fly

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Singapore Airlines resumes nonstop USA-Singapore flights with launch of new San Francisco service. Ushering in a new era of ultra-long-distance flights for the company, Singapore Airlines resumed nonstop operations from the U.S. to Singapore on 23 October, when a new Airbus A350-900 departed San Francisco International Airport.

The A350-900 ULR is designed to help address and minimize the symptoms of jetlag. The aircraft is pressurized at a lower altitude and features higher humidity levels, an advanced air filtration system and updated lighting controls that are designed to create a more comfortable journey for passengers.

The A350-900 is able to operate non-stop San Francisco flights on a year-round basis. The aircraft is configured with a total of 253 seats in Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.

Features in the New Business Class: New seat positions: Our new Business Class seats offer two new seating positions-the Lazy Z, a cradling position that ensures your weight is centered and balanced when you're sitting down, and the Sundeck, a lounging position that extends the base and foot of your seat so you can stretch and rest your legs on the ottoman.

Fully-flat bed: Handcrafted from Scottish leather and diamond-stitched, our 28-inch seat transforms into a 78-inch bed when you're ready to turn in. Fully-flat with a cushioned headboard for greater sleeping comfort, complete with linen, duvet and pillows.

Stowage space: A side console, specially designed to sit above the armrest, lets you stow and conveniently reach for your laptop, in both seat and bed mode. Concealed within your seat are the ports-eXport, HDMI and USB-and the power supply you need to charge your electronic devices.

Book the Cook: Reserve your main course up to 24 hours before you fly, including creations by notable chefs from our International Culinary Panel. Dine in restaurant setting onboard with full table service, and wines to match the food and altitude.

KrisWorld inflight entertainment: Contents thoughtfully curated with you in mind, with an impressive selection of 1,000 entertainment options, - movies, television programs, music, games and apps - a video touchscreen handset, and an 18-inch HD enabled personal LCD with noise-cancelling headphones. On selected flights, stay in touch with family, friends and colleagues with Internet connectivity, as well as text and multimedia messaging.
