SIA to retrofit B777 fleet

17 Jul 2009

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be refitting its Boeing B777 fleet, starting with several aircraft serving the Singapore-Sydney route. These are expected to be rolled out on July 22.

The programme will see new seats in First and Business classes installed, an enhanced Economy class and an upgraded inflight entertainment system.

The First Class cabins will soon be offering eight 35-inch (88.9cm) wide flatbed seats with 23-inch (58.4cm) individual inflight entertainment screens.

The Business Class section will feature inclined lie-flat seats with a six-way adjustable headrest and lumbar support. Each seat also will also be equipped with a control panel, which allows passengers to set the seat position according to preference. The inflight system will have new 15.4-inch (39cm) screens.

In Economy Class, seats will be given Givenchy-designed covers similar to those on the Airbus A380 and Boeing B777-300ER aircraft.

In addition, SIA’s KrisWorld inflight entertainment system will be upgraded in all classes, providing Audio-Video on Demand (AVOD) with a more intuitive and user-friendly interface.

Refitted B777s will be introduced progressively between October and December.
