The first flight with the new cabin products will be on 18th of December on the Singapore-Sydney route.
To work on cabin upgrades, the airline has hired specialist design firms. Five years ago, it has hired DesignworksUSA (a unit of BMW Group) ago to work on a new first-class cabin to increase privacy, storage space and comfort.
Singapore Airlines is the only Asian carrier that has flown the luxurious Concorde more than three decades ago.

Another airline which goes through the biggest transformation is the Cathay Pacific Airways which has cut 600 jobs at its Hong Kong head office as part of efforts to revive its fortunes.
On the other side, Emirates is also preparing to unveil the new first class cabin on its Boeing 777-300ER planes. It will feature six suites as well as new features for business and economy seats.
Singapore airlines can also be called as the trendsetter of the aviation industry. It has become the first airline to provide free alcohol to economy-class passengers and headsets for in-flight entertainment.
