First Class Star RTWs on the A380?

Looking at, e.g., SIN-LHR on 16 Sep, the two daytime A380 flights are showing A-class availability (the night flight is not).

Does that mean F-class Star RTWs can now include A380 flights on SQ?

Yeap, A inventory available on some A380 flights ... at a modest US$2,000 surcharge for *A RTW fares.

It's about time!

I've waited a long time for this to happen.

SQ should have had this surcharge long ago.

I wouldn't have mind paying a higher surcharge on an RTW ticket when the A380 first came out.

I don't think so. This is a Star RTW--not an SQ only RTW.

Is the additional charge $2000 per segment in A380 suites or $2000 to include one or more suites A380 segments on a RTW *A FC fare?

Also, I assume the SQ only FC RTW fare is gone now?

From the fare rules for the FRWSTAR* fares:

Code:
SINGAPORE AIRLINES FIRST CLASS SURCHARGE
          SQ FIRST CLASS SURCHARGE APPLICABLE FOR
          PASSENGERS BOOKED IN A CLASS
          AIRCRAFT EQUIPMENT TYPE CODES-
          AET CODE- 388 EQUIPMENT TYPE- A380
          THE SURCHARGE IN THE MATRIX BELOW WILL BE LEVIED
          ON FIRST CLASS RTW PASSENGERS TRAVELLING ON SQ
          A380.
          ROUTE -OR VICE-VERSA- Q-SURCHARGE PER SECTOR
          SIN-HONG KONG SIN-HKG   USD700
          SIN-SWP  SIN-MEL/SYD  USD1100
          SIN-JAPAN SIN-NRT   USD1100
          EUROPE-AMERICAS FRA-JFK   USD1100
          SIN-EUROPE SIN-CDG/FRA/LHR/ZRH USD2000
          JAPAN-AMERICAS NRT-LAX   USD2000
          SIN-AMERICAS SIN-JFK/LAX  USD2700
          THE SURCHARGE AMOUNT MUST BE REFECTED AS A Q-
          SURCHARGE
          AFTER THE A380 SECTOR.
          NOTE-
          THIS ALSO INCLUDES THE OPERATING SERVICES
          MARKETED
          UNDER THE FLIGHT NUMBERS OF STAR ALLIANCE MEMBERS
          WHERE APPLIACABLE.
It appears that all surcharges are per sector and are absurdly high.

SQ surcharges are always per segment.

I'd take SWISS F any day of the week than pay for a Suites class that really is nothing more than glorified F. Most other airlines don't say its a whole different class, only SQ seems to have gotten overboard.
