# SUITE LIFE
This is what a €16,000 suite on a plane looks like
And it was all paid for with air miles.

First class can be plenty luxurious, but it’s nothing like Singapore Airlines’ iconic Suites Class.

Travel blogger Derek Low cashed in his frequent-flier miles to purchase an $18,125.30 round-trip ticket in Suites Class, and thankfully he took lots of gorgeous photos of his journey.

From your own cabin and full-size bed to private rooms and classy meals, you’ve never seen a classier way to fly in style.

Here’s how he got on:

Boarding began at the Singapore Changi Airport First Class terminal

The Suites also includes access to The Private Room, an even more lucrative tier than first class

The Private Room features vaulted ceilings and comfy chairs, with plenty of space to relax before boarding
