    A report from Australia Business Traveler this week indicates that Singapore Air is upgrading a number of their long-haul aircraft to offer a better in-flight experience in the business class cabin. The Boeing 777-200ER planes are currently used to service a number of destinations in Europe with an angled-flat bed. The upgrades will see the seat replaced with a model comparable to those in use on the carrier’s A380 fleet with the most significant improvement being that they are fully flat beds. The first route to consistently see the new seats is Singapore – Amsterdam; other routes will be announced as more planes are converted to the new layout.

    It will be interesting to see what impact, if any, this has on award seats on those flights.

    And to reasonably accessible award seats.

    Win some, lose some.
