INFLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT AND COMMUNICATIONS


KrisWorld, the world’s best inflight entertainment experience brought to you by Singapore Airlines (SIA), is now bigger and better with the introduction of revolutionary new features.

These new features are made possible with the installation of Matsushita Avionics Systems’ new MAS3000 system. SIA is the first carrier to install the system, which will be progressively fitted on the Megatop B747-400 and Jubilee B777 fleets.

KrisWorld now offers almost 200 entertainment options, including video and audio programming, games and news. The remote control unit doubles as an inflight telephone, the KrisFone. It allows passengers to make calls to virtually anywhere in the world, via the satellite network.

KrisWorld contains instructions in English, French, German, Chinese and Japanese.


Audio and Video Programming

 SIA’s inflight AVOD system – the world’s first such system – allows passengers to enjoy an unprecedented range of video and audio programmes whenever they wish to, instead of waiting for the next viewing or listening cycle. The viewer can choose to pause, fast-forward and rewind.

 AVOD was previously offered to First and Raffles Class passengers on selected long- and medium-haul routes.

 AVOD is now being introduced progressively in the Economy Class of our Megatop 747s and Jubilee 777s.

 Passengers in all three classes can choose from an unbeatable selection of 25 movies, 30 hours of short features (or about 50 features) and 50 CD albums.

 In addition, there are 12 broadcast audio channels, ranging from classical and pop music to comedy and chat shows. Specially-tailored channels featuring Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tamil and Hindi music are available on certain flights.

 There is alsoa “Bulletin” video channel showing destination information and news updates.


Games

 All passengers can now have hours of fun with 25 Nintendo Game Boy games (including popular titles of such franchises like Pokémon and Mario).

 SIA has also introduced multi-player network PC games, such as “SIA Inflight Challenge” (a trivia quiz game), “Head-to-Head Chess” and “Mahjong”. For the first time ever in an aircraft, passengers can play against each other – wherever they are seated.


 Since August 2001, cabin crew have been conducting “SIA Inflight Challenge” during the flight. The contest is available for a year and up to 100 passengers can participate at any one time. The quiz game is conducted in rounds of 20 questions each. The winners of each round will be presented with a gift by the Cabin Crew.

 All passengers can also test their wits by playing any of the 13 PC games or answering any of the four sets of brainteasers.


Information and News

 There is an “Airshow” channel showing the flight path of the aircraft.

 Highlights of the KrisShop duty-free shopping catalogue is available on the inflight entertainment system.

 Destination information on 25 SIA destinations is available. First time visitors will find the information on the arrival airport and tourist attractions, as well as a calendar of local events, useful.

 There is also text-based CNN news – from business to sports to weather – which is updated hourly to keep passengers abreast with events happening on the ground.

 In addition, passengers can read about the latest trends in the technology world in “Gizmos”.


Audio and Video Technology

 SIA’s First and Raffles Class passengers are the first in the world to enjoy DVD-quality movies in the sky. In April, the Airline started screening the world’s first MPEG2-encoded inflight movies on selected flights.

 All First and Raffles Class passengers are provided with specially designed Active Noise Cancelling headphones which filter out background cabin noise and at the same time, deliver crystal clear digital sound for enhanced listening pleasure.

 In November 2001, a new clip-on headset was introduced for the Economy Class passengers. The lightweight headset provides a greater level of comfort to our passengers. This new clip-on headset will be progressively introduced for our entire fleet.

 SIA customers became the first in the world to experience inflight “surround sound” offered by Dolby Technologies in 1999. This revolutionary technology brought high quality theatre-style “surround sound” to inflight movie viewing in all three classes.

WINE SELECTION


Passengers on Singapore Airlines (SIA) enjoy wines from the very best vineyards, selected by some of the world's most educated palates.

SIA sources wines from all the major wine-producing regions in the world. Selection is carried out on an "open tender" basis: major suppliers are invited to submit their wines for consideration, thus ensuring that every wine is given a fair chance of selection. This approach has produced a wine cellar of exceptional quality and diversity.



Expert Advice

SIA’s wines are selected by three world renowned wine experts:

 Steven Spurrier, from London, is a leading authority and author on wine. His 35-year career includes founding the first Paris wine school, L’Academie du Vin. He served two terms as Chairman of the Circle of Wines Writers and is currently Consultant Editor for Decanter magazine.

 Anthony Dias Blue is one of the most influential specialists in American wines. He is the Wine and Spirits Editor of Bon Appetit magazine and is heard on a daily food and wine show on radio stations in Los Angeles and New York.

 Michael Hill-Smith is Australia's first Master of Wine (the world's highest wine qualification) and is involved at all levels of the industry as a consultant, commentator, judge and producer.


Annual Tastings

 SIA conducts two formal tastings annually in Singapore: one in March/April, and another in October/November.

 Up to 900 bottles of red and white wine, and champagne are sampled by the consultants in ‘blind’ tastings where the bottles' labels are concealed.

 Wines are judged on appearance (colour and clarity), bouquet or “nose” (smell) and palate (taste). The panel also assesses the wine’s suitability for drinking on board an aircraft (which tends to be a drier atmosphere) and whether it is suitable for the time of day it will be served.

 Acting on its consultants’ advice, SIA buys its wines “forward”, stocking up reserves for serving in the future, particularly for First Class and Raffles Class.

 SIA spends close to S$26 million per annum in total on wine purchases and is committed to serving the best on board.





Wine Appreciation

 SIA cabin crew who are interested in understanding more about wines undergo wine appreciation seminars to learn how and where the different wines are produced and their characteristics. In addition to these seminars, the crew can sign up for beginner and advanced wine courses conducted by wine experts.

 Depending on the route, the selection of top-quality wines and champagnes for First Class include two brands of champagne -- Dom Perignon and Krug Grande Cuvee -- and wines from France, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Port wines from Portugal are included in the wine list. A dessert wine is also served.

 Similarly, in Raffles Class, the selection of wines include pourings from France, Germany, Australia, America, Italy and South Africa. Port wines from Portugal and vintage champagne are also available. In addition, passengers travelling between Singapore and New Zealand could savour New Zealand wines as well.

 Passengers in Economy Class will be served with a good balance of new and old- world wines like those from France, Italy, Australia, and Chile.

THE MOST EXCLUSIVE FIRST CLASS IN THE WORLD


Singapore Airlines sets new standards of style and comfort in air travel with a luxurious First Class product that provides privacy and personalised service in an exclusive setting.

SIA’s First Class service begins on the ground, where a kerbside greeting and a luxurious check-in reception offer levels of service usually found in the best hotels. Onboard, 12 individual suite-like compartments with a host of special features cater to every need of the customer in terms of comfort, privacy, convenience and entertainment.

Rich leather from Connolly, which supplies Rolls-Royce, Ferrari and Jaguar, complemented by burr wood and tinted metal finishes, evokes an ambience in keeping with a five-star hotel. The distinctive creativity of renowned British designer James Park, who designed the interiors of the Eastern & Orient Express, has provided an aura of grandeur.

The colour scheme in the cabin is mainly tan and beige, with hints of light purple in the seat fabric and carpet. The sides and back of the cabin are light blue. Warm down-lights accentuate the rich colours of the seat fabric and carpet.

The exclusivity of SIA’s First Class is encapsulated in its distinctive branding. The logo consists of a stylised letter “F” in strong burgundy and a stylish “C” in rich gold. The First Class logo appears on all serviceware, signage, tickets and boarding passes, promising superior quality.


Before departure

 A team of senior passenger relations officers meets First Class and Solitaire customers upon arrival at the kerbside at Changi Airport and assists them with their check-in formalities.

 The welcome team members are easily identified by their distinctive uniform, designed by Pierre Balmain, designers of the sarong kebaya worn by the Singapore Girls.

 A new, exclusive First Class check-in lounge with furnishings in marble, wood panels and embossed leather imparts service of the highest quality.


More than just a seat

 Onboard, each customer is seated in a private mini-suite that caters to every inflight need. The configuration comprises eight single seats and two pairs of double seats, but even customers in double seats can enjoy the same level of privacy through deploying specially-designed partitions.

 The luxurious seats offer maximum comfort, whether the customer is working, relaxing or dining. Seat pitch is 78 inches and seat width is 23 inches, among the widest in the airline industry. The leg-rest is 23 inches wide, compared to the previous 16 inches.

 The seat can be adjusted to any intermediate position, including the “cradle” position with a 127-degree angle of recline, providing full body support and superior comfort for reading, enjoying video entertainment or just relaxing. For sleeping, it can be transformed into a fully reclined bed, 76 inches by 23 inches, at the press of a button. An air-mattress in the cushion inflates to even out gaps in the cushion’s contouring to ensure the customer is fully supported. A duvet and sleeper suit are also available.

 A special “turn-down” service is available for flights over seven hours, inspired by the “turn-down” service of world-class hotels. Cabin crew will convert the seat into a bed with a mattress and fresh bed-linen.

 All linen-wear have been redesigned, mostly by Givenchy. Among the new items added are a duvet and sleepersuits. Where applicable, the items carry the “Givenchy for Singapore Airlines” branding.

 Another distinctive feature is the 14-inch video monitor, the largest ever used for an individual seat on any airline in the world. Customers can enjoy SIA’s state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system, KrisWorld, using Active Noise Cancelling headphones, for superb sound quality.

(For further information on KrisWorld, please refer to Backgrounder 2B.)

 Other exclusive features of the new seats include:
 a front cabinet to house the 14-inch video monitor
 storage space below the cabinet for shoes or other personal items
 a stationery drawer containing writing paper, postcards, envelopes and pens
 a sliding table, which is 30 per cent larger than the previous First Class tray table
 two side compartments within easy reach, to store books or small items
 a small in seat pocket for storage of valuables
 a padded seat-back and arm rest dressed in leather
 laptop power supply at every seat, to enable customers to continue working throughout the flight


Fine dining in the air

 First Class customers will also delight in SIA’s World Gourmet Cuisine, featuring an exquisite menu created by SIA’s International Culinary Panel.

 The dishes, which are exclusive to the airline, will be served at the customer’s preferred pace, as in a fine dining restaurant. Most dishes will be served straight from the aircraft galley, replacing the trolley service. The meals will be complemented by SIA’s selection of exquisite wines and champagnes.

 The serviceware has been redesigned by Givenchy. All items carry the First Class logo and are branded “Givenchy for Singapore Airlines”.

(For further information on inflight cuisine and wine selection, please refer to Backgrounders 2C and 2D respectively.)


And there’s more. . .

 Upscale Italian fashion house, Bvlgari, has teamed up with SIA to pamper our discerning passengers with a special amenity kit that contains the Bvlgari cologne, lotion, lip balm, shaving supplies for the gentlemen, and the Bvlgari green tea refreshing towel, eye contour cream, perfume, lotion and lip balm for ladies.

 First Class customers arriving in Singapore can enjoy seven days’ use of a handphone rent-free, a service provided by Singapore Telecom exclusively for SIA customers. The handphones can be booked at the time of reservation and collected from a booth in the arrival hall. Customers without reservations can acquire handphones on an availability basis.

THE NEW RAFFLES CLASS JUST GOT BIGGER AND BETTER


Singapore Airlines’ Raffles Class, recognised the world over as the epitome of business class travel, promises to rejuvenate the jaded business traveller with its latest innovations in cabin and seat designs.

Named after the founder of modern Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles, SIA’s Raffles Class was often touted as the best business class product in the industry when it was first launched in 1990.

With the introduction of the new-generation seat in August 2001, SIA continues to lead the industry in terms of product innovations and impeccable service. Complemented by a distinct aubergine colour scheme, the Swiss-designed seat transforms into a flat bed, affording our busy business travellers a well-earned rest in unbeatable comfort and style.

The outstanding inflight service reveals the confidence and attentiveness of our cabin crew, who strives to pre-empt our customers’ needs, and adding a warm, personal dimension to the unique SIA travel experience.


The all-new “SpaceBed” – a seat that transforms into lie-flat comfort

Frequent Raffles Class customers would be delighted to notice the more generous space in the cabin, resulting from SIA’s decision to reduce the number of seats onboard SIA’s MEGATOP 747s from 58 to 50.

 With a length of 78 inches when fully extended, customers can now sleep on the new flat seats, which offers an unprecedented amount of comfort and rest.

 A unique seat cushion conforms to the contours of the body, allowing a better and more restful sleep. The seat cushion also allows the customer to extend or retract the cushion length for maximum ergonomical support of the body.

 Electrical foot and leg rests, lumbar support and adjustable headrests remain an integral part in providing total comfort.

 Discreet personal screens can be adjusted to the preferred height to maintain privacy or it could be stowed to form a double bed for family travellers.

 Accessible private storage space is located next to the personal video monitors in front of the customer.

 A new AC power system have been built into the SpaceBed, enabling customers to continue working throughout their flight using a normal power cord.

 A personal reading light in every seat would undoubtedly be useful for customers who like to read late into the night.

World Gourmet Cuisine

 Award-winning chefs and an award-winning airline come together to prepare some of the world’s finest inflight gourmet cuisine. World Gourmet Cuisine, an exquisite combination of international and local delicacies, will whet the appetites of even the most critical epicurean traveller.

 Customers can pre-order their favourite dish from our highly-successful “Book The Cook” scheme, where a selection can be made from a booklet of exciting local and international delicacies 24 hours before travelling from selected destinations.

 Alternatively, orders for main courses served on the flight can be placed after take-off and before the start of the meal service. Main courses are served hot and fresh from the galley and this premium meal service is complemented by a selection of award-winning wines from some of the world’s most exclusive vineyards.

 A fine selection of cheese and seasonal fruits are available from the trolley for our customers to choose from.

 To complete the meal, Raffles Class customers now have a wider selection of beverages to choose from, including premium coffee brews like Brazil Santos Bourbon, Colombian Supremo and Kenyan AA.

(For further information on inflight cuisine and wine selection, please see Backgrounders 2C and 2D.)


The finer touches

The relaxed and contemporary setting in Raffles Class, designed by world-famous fashion design house, Givenchy, continues to rejuvenate and empower the important business customer, creating an atmosphere of sophistication and class 30,000 feet in the air.

One of my dream vacations is to fly Singapore Airlines First Class to somewhere...anywhere, just so long as I get the chance to experience everything above.

I am quite amazed at the sheer quantity of SIA's services and features, but I guess that is what makes them so unique. Just as long as they keep on doing what they are doing their bound to remain in their position as one of, if not the, leading passenger airline in the world. Just their entertainment system amazes me. That is one airline on which it would be very hard to get bored while in flight.

So, does this mean that First and Raffles Class passengers had access to DVD movies last April? I never knew that!

So what is new with this post...I wonder how much SQ is paying 9V-SPK for this write up.

I have heard that SQ is having problems with AVOD system in Y class and there are plans to shelf the system for Economy Class.

Singapore_Air, please chill out about CX news because after all, they did make money for the year unlike SQ which is forecasting a "loss" and for your information, this was confirmed by Dr CK last week in his speech to SQ staff.

If that's the case then they should just shelf the AVOD system in Y class and make the seat pitch for god's sake wider a bit.

CX, BA and KLM business class seats are bigger & more comfortable. Pitch at Malaysia/ AA in economy class is bigger.

SQ service is very good but them saying repeatedly saying they are the best is not very elegant or sympathic...

I guess the next time I fly from Auckland to Christchuch, I am going to have to use all my flat mates Air Canada Aeroplan points and go Auckland - Singapore - Christchurch. Sure it may take 2 days instead of 1hr 20mins, but with all his points and First Class, I will make the sacrifice!

Bwhahahahaaaa

I heard rumours that some Megatops serving FRA, SYD and LHR had some installed, though not on all flights. Can anyone confirm? 9V-SPP is most likely to have it I think.


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Well, I did fly 9V-SPP in Dec '01. At that time, it still had the Ultimo seats. I'm certain 'cos I was in one of them, though it may have since been refurbished.
