Singapore Airlines has launched its new first class suites and business class seats on the Singapore-London route, along with all-new design economy seats and a refresh of the airline's KrisWorld inflight entertainment system.
The first class 'mini-suites' are built around a fixed-back shell with curved side panels, with the 35 inche wide seat extending to a 82 inch long bed, up from the current 80 inches of the current first class seat.
Singapore Airlines’ new business class seats share similar design DNA but with increased recline and two new 'Lazy Z' and 'Sundeck' positions between the standard upright seating and lie-flat bed.
However, the new seats won't be seen on a daily basis until October 27th when the airline's Northern Winter schedule kicks in.
If you want to work your itinerary to fly on SQ's new bird and sample the new seats, here's the complete schedule provided to us by Singapore Airlines.
From Tuesday October 1st to Saturday October 26th the flights to grab are SQ306 (Singapore-London) and SQ319 (London-Singapore), but only on the following dates:
- Tuesday October 1st
- Thursday 3rd
- Saturday 5th
- Monday 7th
- Tuesday 8th
- Wednesday 9th
- Thursday 10th
- Saturday 12th
- Monday 14th
- Tuesday 15th
- Wednesday 16th
- Thursday 17th
- Saturday 19th
- Monday 21st
- Tuesday 22nd
- Wednesday 23rd
- Thursday 24th
- Saturday October 26th
Naturally, despite Singapore Airlines' best intentions these dates can't be considered as set in stone: for any number of reason there's always the chance of a last-minute aircraft swap.
But starting on Sunday October 27th you can look forward to the new seats running daily on the Singapore-London route on flights SQ308 and SQ319.
