Business-class seats can be made into full flat-beds
Today you can travel from Copenhagen to experience for the first time Singapore Airlines’ new long-haul cabin on an upgraded Boeing 777-200ER. Passengers can now get more space and greater comfort on the journey between Copenhagen and Singapore.
The upgraded cabin design includes business-class seats that can be made into a full flat-bed and large flat screens in both business and economy class.
The upgraded B777 will fly five times a week. The plane will have 271 seats, 26 of which are in business. By September 20, all flights on the Copenhagen route will be upgraded with the new cabins.
In business class, the new leather seats recline 125 degrees back and unfold to 193cm full-flat beds. All travellers have access to an aisle because of the seats’ 1-2-1 location, as in the airline’s Airbus 240-500, A380 and B777-300ER fleets. The inflight entertainment system has a 15.4-inch LCD screen and wide selection of movies, TV programs and radio channels. In economy class the LCD screens have been upgraded to 9 inches from 6.5 inches.
“We are very pleased to introduce upgraded seats for our Scandinavian customers who now have the opportunity to travel with our optimised flights to Singapore and beyond,” Alastair Hay-Campbell, Singapore Airlines’ general manager for Scandinavia, said.
