SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Class : Airbus A380

I travelled in seat 34D on the 3 legs of my journey from London to sydney and back. This was a seat in the middle of the cabin on an aisle but inexplicably there was no seat in front of my seat meaning I had acres of leg room. also meant I didn't need to move to let my neighbour out.

Economy Class : Airbus A380

I recently travelled Tokyo to Singapore & back on the A380 aircraft. The flight to Singapore was excellent, I had a window seat on the upper deck at row 73K, excellent seat. Very spacious with your own small little storge area next to you (where I dropped my hand luggage into it) and a little more space on the side of the seat. However, on the return trip, I was allocated to seat 83D on the upper deck, not only that it's next to the toilet with fantastic fragrant, the pantry area where the food are warmed gave out some smell too, sitting next to a mix of toilet fragrant & cooked food smell, the aroma was just "great". My suggestion is, sit on the upper deck, as the main deck economy space is a little smaller. Best to choose 71 to 79, row A or row K, next to the window.

Economy Class : Airbus A380

83E & 83F - perfect for couple as each seat has direct aisle access. Recline not restricted and void on each side creates feeling of space. Suits outward-going people as other pax can congregate around this space and there can be a party feel at times. Toilets not a bother but the worst smell came from galley (dinner heating!).

Economy Class : Boeing 777-300ER

43A & 43C - perfect for a couple as one of only 3 doubles on this type of aircraft. Recline is not restricted and void next to 43C creates a feeling of extra space. Toilet and Galley did not pose a problem that eye mask and earplugs could not overcome.

Economy Class : Airbus A380

Upstairs Window - 71 to 83 A or K. You get a side compartment that can fit a laptop bag (due to curve of aircraft body - not on downstairs window), only 2 seats to the aisle (downstairs 3). The upstairs econ also has a nicer ambience being less crowded - with plenty of space up back near staircase to move around for stretch. If low aircraft noise is your priority - choose forwardmost downstairs econ section (31 to 43) as it's noticeably quieter than any other section. But A380 is a quiet aircraft all around so personally I prefer the upstairs window anytime I fly this aircraft.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip 

Economy Class : Boeing 777-200 (2-class configuration)

I would recommend row 31 as it is at the front of the economy cabin and it is also adjacent to the exit (which gives ample legroom). The configuration is 2-3-2, therefore the window seats are ideal if travelling with a partner. Yes, the toilets are right in front of you, but the SQ FA's frequently spray sweet-smelling air freshener.

Business Class : B777-300ER

Seats 11A/11K/14A/14K have extra legroom and sleeping position can be full straight (ie not "skewed"). Rows 11 and 12 are in a "mini cabin" separated by gallery to the rest of Business Class.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Business Class : B777-300ER

Try to get any window seat (A or K) in that this cabin is a 1-2-1 configuration. Best-case, opt for those seats in rows 11 or 12, in that these two rows occupy a mini-cabin away from most business class and directly behind first. A bit more quiet and a more exclusive feel.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip 

Executive Economy Class : A340-500

31 (whole rows) and 34 (Whole rows) In these row, you do not have people seating in the front of you,so you will have more legrooms. Keep in mind SQ is using these type for 18 hours flight (SIN- EWR) so you will need all the extra comforts you can get.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Class : Boeing 777-200

Row 31 is a bassinet row and has extra leg room. However, you run the risk of sitting near babies.

Row 51 is the emergency exit row on this aircraft. If you are unable to obtain the above seats, seats 52C and 52H do not have seats in front of them, hence have extra leg room.

If you would like to sit with just one other person, the two-seaters are 63AC, 63HK, 64AC and 64HK.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Raffles Class : Boeing 747-400

Seats 17A or 17K. These are both window seats, exit row of the Upper Deck. Lots of storage space on the side. Best leg space. Upper deck is much quieter than main deck.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Raffles Class : A340

Seats: 11D and 11F. Best Leg Space in Raffles Class and occupants of both seats can get out without disturbing either.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Class : B777-200ER

Avoid Row 36 and 41 No window for those two rows, best seating row are 31 and 48 but 48 has smaller legroom than 31 because 48 has toilets in front. Row 47A/K, 58A/K and 59A/K only have two seats on the window seat and plenty of storage space between the seats and the window.


SIA Singapore Airlines Passenger Seat Tip

Economy Class : Boeing 747-400

Seats BC and JK - row 49. It's the exit seat near the galley but there's no toilet and the SQ staff is very quiet so you won't be disturbed. Lots of leg space and you have your personal screen even more adjustable to your needs as it is not in the seat in front of you but attached to your own seat.
