Singapore Airlines to Retrofit 777-200ER Cabins
Singapore Airlines will be investing nearly $78 million to refit 10 Boeing 777-200ERs with new long-haul cabin products to provide customers with additional space and comfort. The cabin upgrade program will provide greater product consistency across the Airline’s long-haul fleet, with Business Class seats that convert into full-flat beds and larger in-flight entertainment screen sizes for both Business Class and Economy Class.
The first refitted B777-200ER will operate between Singapore and Amsterdam from Jan. 13. Upgraded B777-200ERs will be deployed to more destinations in Europe and to points in India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand as additional aircraft are refitted, the airline said.
In Business Class, the seat reclines up to 125 degrees and unfolds into a 76-inch full-flat bed. The KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system also features a 15.4-inch LCD monitor and an extensive selection of audio and video programs. In Economy Class, personal LCD monitors will be upgraded to 9 inches from 6.5 inches.
