Singapore Airlines is refurbishing the cabins of its Boeing 777-300 fleet from later this month. This does not include the 777-300ERs which already features the uber-luxurious interiors.
First class in the newly refitted aircraft will be same as in the current Boeing 777-300ER in a 1-2-1 configuration. Singapore Airlines will offer eight of luxurious seats down from the current 18. Each seat will be 35 inches wide, with a 23 inch IFE screen, and the seat converts into the largest full-flat bed in the sky.
Business class will feature the same seats as the new Singapore Airline’s A330 fleet which is an improved version of the original “Spacebed” inclined lie-flat seats, with the 15.4 inch IFE screen.
The Economy Class cabin seat covers will be given specially designed by Givenchy using richer, softer fabrics, similar to those found on Singapore Airlines’ new Airbus A330 and B777-300ER aircraft.
Singapore Airlines’ award-winning KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system will also be enhanced to provide improved Audio-Video On Demand features in all cabin classes, with an updated, more intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface across all cabin classes.
The first aircraft in the retrofit programme will operate on the Singapore-Sydney route (SQ 231/232) from July 22nd. The new cabin will be deployed progressively between October and December on flights to Sydney (SQ 219/220), Riyadh (via Dubai) (SQ 454/453), Dubai (SQ 494/495), Istanbul (via Dubai) (SQ 490/491), Dubai (SQ 494/495), and Shanghai (SQ 830/833 and SQ 836/825).
No Singapore Airlines destination in India will feature the new cabins.
