Singapore Airlines is making a hefty investment to the tune of $150 million. We hear the airline is rolling out new products on an initial eight Boeing 777-300ER aircrafts on the Singapore-London route. The investment program will be extended to new routes and more planes as the products are introduced on Airbus A350s scheduled for delivery.
High rollers flying in first class can expect a new seat. Each seat has a fixed-back shell design with curved side panels to add privacy and personal space. Each seat is 35 inches in width and has an increased bed length from 80 to 82 inches.
In business class, the new seats recline at 132 degrees and has an improved seat cushion. When converted it becomes a full-flat bed at 78 inches in length. Other enhanced features include an 18-inch LCD screen, an all-in-one business panel, USB port, eXport and HDMI ports.
And for those slumming it in economy, each seat, which features a new fabric design, has a new backrest cushion with side bolsters for better back support. Guests can also experience the in-flight entertainment on a 11.1-inch monitor.
