This week I will fly down to SIN for a job interview, the company was kind enough to pay me a ticket for Business (Raffles) Class on SQ...well, I think it didn't cost them too much .
I guess that, unless in SQ's Eco, their Biz is equipped with notebook power outlets, so here is my question: What kind of adapter do I need, can I use my current one (in the German 220 volt version), or do I need a special one? If yes, are these adapters available on board, or do I have to buy it in an electronic shop before I fly?
Not that I think that SQ don't offer enough entertainmet on board, but it would be nice to have power for the whole flight to take a look into my stuff before I present it to the guys in the human resources department .
I forgot to ask: Is the new "Spacebed" product available on SIN-FRA-SIN flights?

You will need an adaptor that converts your plug to an north american plug. As far as the 220 goes, your power supply will work on 110 with no problems at all.
The Spacebed is in all European flights and is available in F and C out of AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA.
Just a note, if you're going to SIN for an interview, you will most likely find you're in Y both ways. SQ really isn't that great about upgrading prospective employees, in fact, they will upgrade a revenue passenger or another employee first. It's the exact opposite once you're hired.

Wrong Wrong Wrong.
The plug on the A345 at least in Raffles class fits a UK / American / European. It has kind of a twist thing on it that you put your plug in half way, twist and it engages. This is for the new plane, I am not positive about the old, but am pretty sure it is the same type of thing.
Any notebook (or any appliance for that matter) can handle up to 220 voltage, so no voltage regulator is required.
The spacebed on the A345 is junk. I cannot stand it. 2 ultra longhaul r/t in it (LAX-SIN and EWR-SIN which i just got back from). The non horizontal flat bed thing is a horrible attempt at a plat bed in biz class. United F class suite is must more comfortable, for the fact that you can actually lay down and not kind of lean back like the spacebed. My first trip in it from LAX-SIN i thought it was OK, but this latest shot at it I was uncomfortable and got little sleep. I wish SQ would go to an actual flat horizontal BED not a titlted thing.
If they paid for Biz, you are in Biz. I would ignore any post that says you are in Y if you paid for Biz.......that makes no sense.
Screw with Krisworld for awhile and you will be there by the time you are done playing around.!
