Singapore Airlines has unveiled their highly-anticipated new cabins for its Airbus A380 fleet. Over the last four years, the airline has been working away at a new Economy, Premium Economy, Business Class, and stunning First Class Suites. 

The fresh design aligns with the airline's 50th anniversary year in Australia and 70th anniversary overall. Singapore is clear to redefine luxury travel and further cement its position as innovative leaders in aviation.

The good news is these new cabins will begin service next month, from December 18 on the Sydney to Singapore service (SQ221 and SQ232). Retrofit work will start in late 2018 on the entire A380 fleet, all targeted for completion in 2020. 

The new layout features 6 first-class suites and 78 business class seats on the upper deck, and with 44 premium economy seats and 343 economy seats on the lower. 

Let's walk you through...
