The suites from Star Alliance member Singapore Airlines are clearly among the best first class products worldwide. You can currently get the roundtrip from London via Zurich to Singapore for £2,457 (~€2,856). The flights are scheduled to be with the First Class Suites on SQ’s Airbus A380. Routings with Lufthansa and Swiss are also possible. You can find available dates for departures in November and December 2021.
You find suiting flight dates with our availability calendar for trips up to 30 days. The calendar exclusively displays dates on which you can get the Singapore Airlines flight at the lowest price. After choosing an out- and inbound flight, it will forward you to swiss.com, where these tickets are on sale.
You can find departures from London-Heathrow and London City airport. Sometimes departing and arrival airports in London alternate. All European flights are Swiss business class flights. The long haul segments are code share flights with Swiss flight numbers (LX 9000/9001), but operated by Singapore Airlines.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
Tickets for the long haul segments are booking class A. You can earn a lot of miles with almost every Star Alliance frequent flyer program, even without tier bonuses.
