After netizens made noise about the potential environmental impact of SIA’s ‘flights to nowhere’ initiative, Singapore Airlines (SGX: C6L) quickly ditched the idea and decided to rethink their offerings.
And guess what?
They’re back with three new initiatives to engage with customers amidst this COVID-19 pandemic.
And frankly… they’re not bad.
Some of the experiences are a tad expensive for my taste though.
But hey, if you’ve ever wondered how the food in first-class tastes like.
Or if you’ve always wondered how The SIA Girls are able to achieve such an immaculate chignon — their signature hairstyle.
Then it might not be a bad idea to try a Discover Your Singapore Airlines Experience.
Prefer to nua at home but miss the SIA in-flight meals you get on first- or business-class?
How about getting them delivered to you instead?
Where you can have them with your choice of wine or champagne.
|[email protected] Package||Price (excluding GST)|
|Wine and Dine First Class Meal for Two with either a bottle of Burgundy red or white wine|
(comes with a pair of First Class amenity kits)
|Starts from $448|
|Wine and Dine Business Class Meal for Two with either a bottle of French wine of brut champagne|
(comes with a pair of Business Class amenity kits)

Wanna up the atas factor?
You can opt for add-ons like getting your food served on tableware designed for SIA.
Or even go for the book-the-chef dining experience (limited slots available each day).

So… Is the Discover Your Singapore Airlines Experience Worth It?
To hardcore fans of SIA and the aviation industry, being able to explore the private areas of the A380 aircraft.
Or finally being able to experience the A-380 first-class suite, which probably costs north of $20,000, for a fraction of the price.
Note: since most flights are grounded, the price I’m quoting is here is an average price which I gathered after scouring online aviation enthusiast’s blogs and reviews of the famed SIA A380 Suite experience
Is definitely worth it.
Even for plebians, like myself, who will probably only go for the $50 A380 Economy class dining experience.
I’d say that it’s not too steep a price to get to see firsthand what the A380 aircraft is like.
If you’ve never flown or taken the A380 before.
Plus you get to taste a renowned chef’s cuisine too.
I mean, it never hurts to spoil ourselves once in a while and support local while we’re at it, right?
For those wondering if we can use the $100 SingapoRediscovers Vouchers to pay for these experiences…
I’m not sure.
These SIA Experiences were just announced and they seem like they will only be available via Kris Shop.
But if SIA does decide to accept these vouchers, I’m pretty sure that they’ll need to open up more slots in order to cope with the demand…
