4. Everything you ever wanted to know about Business Class
5. Design details

Reaching the end of our series on flying the Singapore Airlines A380, it's time to look back and well...just look closer.

Paying attention to the design details means that the airlines will have to pay attention to them as well. And, let's face it, when recounting a particularly great flight, you'll utter a sentence something like this: "Oh, it was so nice...I slept and ate well and they had [detail], [detail] and [detail]!" Personally for us—on the SQ A380—we'd fill those spots with "Givenchy linens," "the cutest stackable salt & pepper shakers," and "an onboard sommelier."

The details you spot on any flight, not just this one, typically depend on your own interests. Foodies will grab the menu and gasp at its thickness. Those with a fondness for architecture may head to the rear to ogle the spiral staircase between decks. Interior design enthusiasts will not fail to spot the wall vase with fresh flowers in the lavatories. We could go on.

Here we've attempted to capture some of the little things—the easily overlooked accents—that make such a long, international flight still quite glamorous. Put down the Sudoku (does anyone play that anymore anyway?) and have a look around.

Bonus: we played a bit with a stop motion app, and here's the (super quick) result:
