Welcome to our final issue of the year. It’s natural to look both back and forwards, and appropriately enough, we have our review of the new ultra long-haul service between Singapore and New York. It is a matter of looking forward, because the route is being served by a new-generation A350-900 with the added designation of ULR – Ultra Long-Haul. But it is also worth looking back, because as regular readers will know, it is Singapore Airlines reinstating a route it abandoned in 2013 because the aircraft it was using – the A340-500 with its four engines – proved too thirsty on fuel and therefore uneconomic. Interestingly, the new attempt also focuses on premium traffic, not just because a direct route such as this commands a higher price for the…

gateway hotel raises the bar in hospitality

Few hotel locations are as coveted as the Kowloon harbourfront in Hong Kong, and the Gateway Hotel from Wharf Hotels takes full advantage of its stellar position.

Meanwhile its position within Harbour City – Hong Kong’s largest shopping complex – makes the hotel the ultimate place for modern, comfortable accommodation and a truly memorable shopping experience.

new qantas changi first lounge

LOUNGE options at Singapore’s Changi Airport are about to get a whole lot grander, with Qantas now planning to open a dedicated First Lounge while also expanding the size of its existing Business Lounge by about 60 per cent, giving the airline a combined capacity to seat more than 800 customers across its facilities. Details are so far slim, though Qantas has stated construction on the new lounge will begin in April next year and, when completed, it will be able to seat about 240 people. The airline has also confirmed that the lounge will have a strong focus on F&B, with a cocktail bar and an open kitchen with a Singapore-inspired à la carte menu.…

virgin atlantic new upper class seat to take off

A NEW “revolutionary” Upper Class seat product is coming to Virgin Atlantic’s 12 Airbus A350-1000s, which the airline will begin taking delivery of from the middle of next year. Speaking to Business Traveller, Virgin Atlantic’s senior vice president of sales and customer loyalty, Oliver Byers, said that the A350-1000 was “a great opportunity for [Virgin] to introduce a new upper class seat product”, adding that further details will be announced early in 2019. “We’ve seen it, I’ve sat in it, it’s a fantastic seat,” he added. “What you’ll see is that it’s a next-generation product but it’s incredibly Virgin Atlantic – it’s exactly what you would think Virgin Atlantic is in terms of the look and feel, the design, the feel of the cabin and the warmth of the environment.”…
