Singapore Airlines A380 service to Los Angeles pushed back to July

After a delay caused by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Singapore Airlines has announced that it will inaugurate Airbus A380 service to Los Angeles beginning on July 1, 2011, reports SkyClub News.

Singapore Airlines planned to begin flying the superjumbo jet to California via a stopover in Tokyo on March 27, but the Japanese disasters prevented the new service from being implemented according to schedule.

Once the carrier begins flying the A380 to Los Angeles, American customers will be able to enjoy Singapore Airlines' signature premium service in a whole new way. First class passengers will stay in onboard suites, each of which is equipped with a large and cushy armchair. The suites also have standalone beds with top-quality linens and pillows.

Those who travel in the business class cabin can relax in wide seats upholstered in leather. These seats reportedly convert into the largest fully-flat beds offered in business class on any airline around the world. Additionally, these premium travelers will be able to enjoy the use of a centralized business panel equipped with USB ports and power outlets.
