Singapore Airlines A350 Business Class Seat Launch

Singapore Airlines = Singapore Slings

Singapore Airlines are upgrading their Adelaide to Singapore service to an A350 from December and deputing their new Medium Haul Business Class cabin on the route.

We checked out their Launch in Adelaide to try the new seat.

The new cabin is laid out in a 1-2-1 configuration giving every  business class passenger aisle access and creating a row of single window seats.

Unlike Singapore Airlines A380 business class, the new A350 Medium Haul seat has a staggered seat configuration, with seats alternating between having the console on the window side of the seat, or on the aisle side.

Seats alternate between having the console on the left or right.

This alternating seat design also means that the fully flat bed is much straighter in this cabin than the A380 cabin, with the seat connecting to the footrest directly in front of it.

In a seated position, theres a lot of leg space, and a large footrest (which makes up the base of your bed).

There is plenty of storage within the seat, including room for a small bag/handbag under the footrest and a magazine storage to the side of the footrest. In the console to the side of your seat is a drinks table, is a hook to hold your headphones, and a storage compartment which can be closed, perfect for placing your inflight items during takeoff and landing. There’s also a handy good sized slide out mirror tucked in to the console.

The dining table easily slides out from beneath the Entertainment screen. Meaning the table is completely independent rom your seat and can be used in any seated or bed position.

Everything has been thought of with this seat design. All you need is within arm’s reach and the new straight design of the seat is a big improvement to the comfort of the fully flat beds.
