Singapore Airlines’ new business class seats, set to debut on the airline's Boeing 777-300ER service between Singapore and London later this year, shares similar design DNA as its new first class mini-suites.
Singapore Airlines has retained the forward-facing layout and 1-2-1 configuration as its current business class cabin, with a similar degree of ‘private space’.
There are now two positions between the standard upright seating and lie-flat bed, which SQ terms Lazy Z and Sundeck mode.
The 28 inch wide seat converts to a 78 inch long flat bed, using the same flip-over design as SQ’s current business class product, with an increased recline from 128 degrees to 132 degrees.
There’s a new amenity storage area on the side console and a separate laptop stowage area.
An ‘all in one business panel’ sports the laptop power supply, USB port plus eXport and HDMI ports. As with the new first class there’s a floodlight reading lamp and on/off switch for the 18 inch LDC monitor (up from today’s 15.4 inches).

The new business class seats will debut in September on a new Boeing 777-300ER plying the London-Singapore route, and will be fitted to all new Boeing 777s joining the SQ fleet, along with the forthcoming Airbus A350s.
