I will be flying BRU-SIN in autumn, business class, and I am now comparing different alternatives.
1/ BRU-LHR-SIN-LHR-BRU with Singapore Airlines, either on B777-300ER or A380-800. I'd love to fly the whalejet, but SQ's B777-300ER is also said to be great.
2/ BRU-LHR-SIN-LHR-BRU with British Airways, on their B747-400, with the possibility to fly upper-deck (which is great for a 13hrs journey). BA on the B777 not an option.
3/ BRU-LHR-SIN-LHR-BRU with Qantas, on their A380-800. But I don't know how their business class compares to SQ's? QF 747-400 not an option, I think BA 747-400 is a better choice.
4/ BRU-LHR-DO-SIN-DOH-LHR-BRU with Qatar Airways, on A340-600 and A330-300. I never flew Qatar, but they are said to be the very best. Only drawback here is the 2 stops (LHR and DOH).
I don't think KLM, AF, LH, CX, ... can beat the above 4. What's your idea? I have a slight preference for Singapore Airlines because of the A380 and their being a 5* carrier, but would not like to be disappointed either. I have gold status with OneWorld, Star, and SkyTeam, so there is no bias to one or another carrier because of mileage.

Quoting TMCN (Thread starter): I have a slight preference for Singapore Airlines because of the A380
I guess you made your decision then. If you want to fly with the 380, then you should go on SQ and if you like SQ, then go for it. I have never been on SQ, but I am sure they are good and you'll enjoy your flight.
Have you checked for fares for other carriers or is that not a factor?
