The OOOOOOONNLY WAY TO FLY!

Life has a funny way of slapping me around. This has always been the case, so you would think by now I'd have learned something. But nooooooooo....!

Just a few days ago I let go with a rant about crappy airline service and the utter destruction of the idea that anyone in a major corporation could give a shit about service. But apparently, Singapore Airlines shows me to be completely ignorant of the trend in travel once again.

Behold! The SUITE way to travel. And I do mean sweet!

WHAT IT'S LIKE TO FLY THE $23,000 SINGAPORE AIRLINES SUITES CLASS

 The world's best airline experience from Singapore to New York.

Leonardo diCaprio has enjoyed the suite life, in case you were wondering.

So there you are. I KNEW there was still an extraordinary level of service out there somewhere, I just suspected (rightly) that it had moved significantly beyond my income level. I'm always playing the wrong game at the wrong time...and for a lot less money.

Now it costs $23,000.00 to get a lovely meal and a quiet nap on a plane.

Okay...I'll just keep my mouth shut from now on. I'm going for a swim.

  2. At one time, flying was only for those with a little more money in their pocket and the demand their money was well spent.

    Now, since flying is "affordable", people accept piss-poor service, cramped seating, dealing with passengers that would be thrown off a bus, and enjoy a trip that can only be described as a flying trip through Walmart.

      Yes! It all started when people thought they could fly with flip flops and jeans.

  3. Read this quote about flying a few years ago when the author was lamenting about airlines and passengers , "flying sure has gotten more democratic lately".

  4. Hey Buttercup, it's S$23,000 (Singaporean dollars). That's only US$18,400. Now we're talking! That's just about blue collar these days.
