Singapore Airlines New Business Class on 737-800 or MAX? Speculation on flat bed seat design for previously owned SilkAir aircrafts overhaul.
This is presumably for the Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleets.
Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft has yet to enter service with Singapore Airlines. This is although the carrier now has a fleet of six inherited from its merger with SilkAir.
Aircraft we are expecting between now and 31st March 2021 as per the list below.
9V-MBG will be the first upcoming delivery. This is because it had a 2-hour test flight in Seattle this morning. We believe this means the aircraft is ready for delivery.
Previously we have covered our experience on the article below on Boeing 737-800.
SIA announced previously in fact that they will install Thompson Vantage flat-bed seats to SilkAir’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft fleet. Additionally this is in advance of those jets moving across to the mainline operation.
The business class typically lay out in an alternating 2-2 and 1-1 configuration. Therefore providing a ‘throne’ like seat at alternate rows with reasonable storage space at either side of the seat as well.
We in fact will expect a similar version to FlyDubai Business Class as per our illustration here below.

This will be the announcement of the new seat overhaul for the Boeing 737 MAX 8 owned by SilkAir previously.
After the merger of Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, Boeing 737-8 incur the same cost for the award flight. Therefore, making it a lower bang for buck in redeeming award flights.
We hope to get a better flight experience flying these regional flyers. This will without a doubt a good move in the right direction.
