New SQ Suites vs EK A380 First vs EY Apartment

New SQ Suites vs EK A380 First vs EY Apartment

  1. Anonymous

    Lucky,

    As an extremely-seasoned traveler, I need your opinion. I have my first opportunity for an around the world trip, with various restrictions. Bottom line: which of these three products would you be most likely to (kind of) sacrifice? Specifically, which would you relegate the shorter leg to (two of them can have a 14-15 hour leg while one has to only have an 8-hour leg)?

    All three could have a long leg if I did not cross both oceans, but then that would not technically be an around the world trip. I know that’s a personal problem, but any guidance is appreciated.

    Thanks for what you do.

    Dan

    According to Lucky’s post about the top first class products… he goes Emirates A380, then Etihad, then Singapore.

    I’d imagine you wouldn’t be disappointed any way you choose, but maybe others who have flown all 3 could chime in!

    [USER=1436]@rickyw[/USER] It’s important to note that that ranking was based on SQ’s “old” suites. Although, at the same time, the New Suites are only flying on Singapore to Sydney (and later to London), so it’s a lot harder to get on one of them opposed to, say, Emirates First or Ethiad First

    Definitely agree wilve. Dan didn’t mention much about specific routings, so I assumed a generic ranking would do 🙂

    Thank u both for replying. I was essentially toiling between these 2 scenarios.

    1. JFK to DXB EK F, to LHR EY F, to SIN new SQ Suite, to NRT SQ F, to LAX JAL F.
    Here, the apartment gets the short leg.

    vs.

    2. JFK to NRT JAL F, to SIN SQ F, to SYD new SQ Suite, to AUH EY F, to JFK EK F.
    Here, the new SQ Suite gets the short leg.

    Any input [USER=4]@Lucky[/USER] ?

    I’m leaning toward option 2…
