Back in 2018, it was decided to merge Singapore Airlines and its allied brand SilkAir into one airline, providing continuity of quality and service across the the airline. And you know what that means? Cabin upgrades, and here they are for the 737MAX 8’s.
Singapore has 37 of them on order, with 6 currently in the fleet. The aircraft have 154 seats over 2 classes. 10 in business and 144 in Economy.
This features lie-flat Business Class seats designed by London-based Factorydesign and built by Thompson Aero Seating. This means you get a Throne Seat in the 2nd row in the 2-2,1-1,2-2 cabin with 10 seat cabin.
Economy seats come from Collins Aerospace. Panasonic’s X-Series seat-back in-flight entertainment across the cabins with KrisWorld entertainment content and Wi-Fi.
The SIA’s 737-8 aircraft will enter service on short- to medium-haul flights in the coming weeks. Routes from Singapore will include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Nepal, and Thailand given regulatory approvals. More routes will be announced as the aircraft are rolled into the fleet.
I love digital, except when my phone dies, which happened to me on the last night of my recent visit to New Zealand
I can see myself making use of these seats to their full lie-flat advantages between Singapore and the Maldives!
