The new cabin features offer the world's widest first and business class seats with fully flat beds, a more spacious economy class, and an enhanced KrisWorld inflight entertainment system.

''SIA has always endeavoured to bring the best in luxury travel to its passengers. The new B777-300ER caters to a truly premium way of travelling and our customers have given extremely positive feedback on the cabin products across all classes,'' said SIA general manager (India) C W Foo.
The airline has worked with leading transportation interior designer James Park Associates to develop these new products. The new first class and business class seats in the B777-300ER, with a width of 35 and 30 inches, respectively, are almost 50% wider than any other conventional first class and business class seats in the industry.
