    SIA To Invest US$325 Million To Fit Latest Cabin Products To B777-300ER Fleet


    09 May 2014 - Singapore Airlines is to invest US$325 million to upgrade 19 Boeing 777-300ERs with the latest generation of cabin products, featuring new seats in all classes of travel and the world’s most advanced in-flight entertainment system.


    The significant investment programme will provide consistency across the Airline’s entire B777-300ER fleet, with next-generation cabin products that are the new industry benchmark for premium air travel.


    Singapore Airlines introduced the new cabin products in September 2013 after taking delivery of the first of eight additional B777-300ERs ordered from Boeing. The upgrade programme announced today will see the same products fitted to 19 existing B777-300ERs. Installation work is expected to begin early in 2015, with all aircraft completed by September 2016.

    The new cabin products are currently available on selected daily services to London Heathrow and Tokyo Narita. They were introduced after more than two years of development with world-renowned design firms, including BMW Group DesignworksUSA and James Park Associates.


    The new First Class seat offers enhanced comfort, featuring a fixed-back shell design with curved side panels for added privacy. Set in a modern, welcoming cabin, the seat also features an ergonomically sculpted cushion and adjustable headrest, with customised in-seat lighting. At 35 inches in width and with an increased bed length of 82 inches, it is one of the most spacious First Class products in the sky.


    The new Business Class seat offers greater recline at 132 degrees, with an improved ergonomic seat cushion. Two new seating positions have been introduced – ‘Lazy Z’ and ‘Sundeck’ – providing even greater flexibility for customers to choose their preferred ways to work or relax. When converted, it becomes the industry’s widest full-flat bed, at 78 inches in length, with a padded headboard cushion for enhanced comfort. More stowage space has also been added, with an amenity stowage area on the side console and laptop stowage area.


    The new Economy Class seat also provides additional comfort, with increased personal space and legroom. Seats feature new backrest cushions with side bolsters for better support. An ergonomically sculpted headrest cushion provides an increased range of height adjustments and improved neck support.


    Complementing the new seats is the latest KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system. Upgraded with the latest hardware offerings and an intuitive graphical user interface, it is the world’s most advanced in-flight entertainment system.

    Why am I still unimpressed with how they tangled with the news that everyone is going past their "modernizing" efforts? Hmm...
