Singapore Airlines have pulled the covers off their revamped business class and first class seats for the Airbus A380.
The host of changes are aimed at giving passengers more personal space in a modern fit out filled with some surprising creature comforts.
Kicking things off nicely in business class are a select number of middle seats which can convert into full double beds. Overlooking the fact that you’d be catching zees in a bed in front of other passengers, the idea is still pretty bold in terms of honouring the airline’s latest ‘space made personal’ motto.
The business class seats themselves are 25-inches wide which makes for a decent amount of room to conduct work and rest in privacy. The layout remains unchanged with a forward-facing 1-2-1 configuration complete with extended seat shell and a slide down divider for the middle seats.
There’s also the ability to recline the seats into a ‘Lazy Z’ or Sundeck position as a precursor to fully reclining the seat into a flat bed. Once there, passengers have 1.98 metres of wiggle room from head to toe.
On the storage front business class provides ample room carry-on luggage under the seat as well as open compartments to hold things like laptops, bags, smartphones, electronics and more. KrisWorld inflight entertainment is presented on a generous 18-inch HD screen alongside an AC powerpoint and high-powered USB ports for quick charging.
Those wishing to step up their flight experience can enjoy the spoils of first class with their own suite which comes with a fully flat bed and separate leather recliner so that no conversion is required. There’s also two generously sized bathrooms which come complete with a sit down vanity counter.
The Singapore Airlines A380 will begin flights on the Sydney to London route from December 2017.
