Sydneysiders can book with confidence come November 27, with the new jet rostered onto SQ222 to Singapore, and SQ231 on the journey home.

Singapore Airlines' new first class seats, designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, offer a new fixed-back shell design with curved side panels and upholstered leather with distinctive diamond stitching in a 1-2-1 configuration:
With direct aisle access for every passenger and fully-flat beds between 203 and 208cms long and 89cm wide, the airline claims it to be “one of the most spacious First Class products in the sky”.

Down the back of the bus, economy travellers can look forward to a 3-3-3 layout – as opposed to the less-spacious 3-4-3 configuration used by other airlines such as Emirates – with the seats reclining to 115 degrees.
In-seat AC and USB power is standard across all seats, whether you’re perched up in first class or stuck in the last row of economy.
Singapore Airlines also flies its Boeing 777-300ERs to London and Tokyo Narita, and will also boost Airbus A380 flights in 2015 to both Sydney and Melbourne.
