Singapore Airlines (SIA) has unveiled its next generation of regional cabin products first fitted on its new Boeing 787-10 fleet, a product it says will redefine medium-haul travel.
The refreshed cabin will include seats that recline to 76-inch fully-flat beds and aisle access for all business class passengers with a 1-2-1 staggered configuration.
Each business class seat measures up to 26 inches in width with retractable armrests that can be raised and lowered, while class enhancements include ergonomic contour backrests with six-way adjustable headrests.
The new 787-10s will have 337 seats in two classes, 36 in business class and 301 in economy class.
In addition, business class passengers will have their own 18-inch full high- definition touchscreen monitor, and economy class passengers will enjoy the same features on their 11.6-inch screens.
All passengers will enjoy what SIA says is a world-first personalisation of in-flight entertainment through myKrisWorld, offering passengers content recommendations based on their preferences and viewing history and the ability to bookmark and resume content, as well as to customise and save preferences for subsequent flights.
SIA is also the first airline to offer a series of games from Toca Boca and Sago Mini on KrisWorld. Initially available on the 787-10s, the entertainment option will progressively be made available on other aircraft types in the airline’s fleet.
SIA is investing US$350 million in the introduction of the new regional cabin products on an initial 20 787-10s, the first of which was delivered earlier this week.
