From memory they either have 6 hour blocks or you pay per hour. We have stayed for 10 hours one time and another time 3-4 hours, depending on flights etc.
Singapore you definitely need to book early as it books out quickly, you can still pay to use shower facilities or pool though which we have also done when the airport hotel has been booked.

Singapore Airlines are my favourite airline to fly with. Have done several flights with my now 3 year old, and have absolutely no complaints. Individual in-flight entertainment with plenty of kids' shows, had little toys for my son to play with and the staff were fabulous in keeping meals aside for us so one of us could eat while the other held/looked after our son.
I've flown to Hawaii with Qantas (with 19 month old), and it wouldn't be my first choice of airline if we did that flight again - they had iPads for entertainment but ours kept freezing or not working. Planes were much older and run down too.

qantas has always been great for our overseas and local jaunts. they use the brand new Airbus A380s for their USA trips, lovely new planes and fantastic in seat entertainment with lots of choices and games. meals aren't too bad either. depends where you're going I guess but we always go qantas where we can

Which airline were you happy with travelling overseas? (With babies and toddl...
We've flown qantas and Etihad for aus-Europe. Both times I've flown qantas I've been pretty disappointed and the most recent flight I actually issued a complaint, so horrible if flying by yourself with a child. Very rude and unhelpful staff and always ages to get food or drink. Etihad was business as it was the flight DH's work paid for when we relocated so don't think my thoughts on them are normal☺️. I've heard great things about Singapore if flying with children and emirates and Etihad have 'sky nannies.'
Between Aus and states I've flown US, united, qantas, virgin and air New Zealand. Have always been happy with virgin and air new zealand is fab. Again not impressed with qantas (all flights have been the a380) and united is horrible.
I often find that Virgin has thought of everything in regards to what you may want on a flight and staff is always amazing.

Singapore Airlines are the best hands down in my experience flying to and from the UK. Very helpful staff, great entertainment system including games and movies for kids, good kid's meals.

There is also an outdoor swimming pool at the airport that you can use and various kids play areas.

I have used Singapore Airlines and Emirates with my DS. Both were fabulous. We got a kiddy pack with both. The staff fawned over all the kids. They were really good about food - and gave our food early or late if we needed. For entertainment - well DS slept most of the flights but we brought the ipad and games/toys so he was occupied...
