This Singapore Airlines A380 Business Class Review from JFK-FRA is a YouTube Video. For my other Singapore Business Class reviews, see Singapore A380 Business Class, Singapore Airlines Business Class 777-300ER Review, Review: Singapore Business Class A350-900 DME to SIN.
Our Singapore Airlines A380 Business Class flight JFK-Frankfurt was a good experience, as red eye flights from the U.S. to Europe go. Our seats, 96A and 96K, all the way in back on the upper deck, were very private, and particularly so since no passengers were in 96D or 96F, giving us the entire row to ourselves. The space and width of the Singapore Business Class seats is great, although I still don't care for the bed. I don't like having to get up and fold down the seat into a bed, instead of reclining it all the way into a bed (although this was mitigated on this flight by being able to use 96D and 96F as our separate beds). The bed is also too hard on its own, so I was glad I'd brought my Therm-a-rest mattress pad with me to make it more comfortable for sleeping.
Even so, because row 96 is in the back, the turbulence made for a very bumpy ride (seats in the front, closer to the nose, tend to be less affected by turbulence than seats in the back).
My Book the Cook Scallops and Shrimp entree was good, and the seafood was not overcooked as is often the case, although the linguine was overcooked. The meal took awhile to be served, however, so those who want to maximize their sleep on the short NYC-Frankfurt flight may want to simply dine in the SWISS Lounge.
