"seats very comfortable"

(Australia)

Flew SYD-SIN and SIN-NRT return in 31A and 35A respectively on Singapore Airlines A380 in premium economy. Seats were very comfortable with nice width and support. The screens were very good, clear and large for watching the IFE. The dual pockets in the seat backs are nice and big with one filled with magazines and the other empty for a jacket or laptop, however row 31 only has a basic pocket on the wall. There are numerous other pockets and cubby holes surrounding the seat for any devices or needs. The seat armrests are nice and wide, with a folding table inside, meaning that you are not fighting with your neighbour for it. Leg rests and seat recline made it very comfortable for sleeping. The reading lights over the shoulder seem like a good idea but in reality, they can shine brightly inadvertently at the row in front and they have a narrow beam of light, making reading a large newspaper a chore. Row 35 lacked overhead locker space as the partition wall blocks the door from opening.

"very comfortable seat"

(Australia)

Seat 54H is a very comfortable seat near the wing. Quiet area. Comfortably padded and enough width. I am of average build, 180cms tall. Good legroom. Could easily get out of the seat even when passenger in front reclined theirs. USB charging station and great, easy to use Entertainment system. Headphones are poor though, sound below par. I recommend using subtitles if you really want to hear every word of the movie.

"seat was comfortable"

(Indonesia)

The old Economy Class seat in Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER is just fine. The seat was comfortable (only for a 1 hour flight). With good entertainment system, KRISWORLD. However, the personal IFE touchscreen is not as good as the new one installed on the newer Boeing 777-300ER. The footrest was a major winner in this leg. It was a good flight.

"the flight was great"

(Singapore)

I was traveling from London LHR to Singapore SIN. It took me 3 minutes to get checked in and boarding took us 10 minutes! The cabin crew were friendly and polite. Although my entertainment screen was damaged and did not work. Fortunately on the the cabin crew members offered to change my seat as the flight was not full. The food was amazing and juice was great. The turbulence was terrible, it took us 45mins to get out of the storm! In the end the flight was great.

"seats cramped for leg/knee room"

(Australia)

Selected the A380 flight Sydney to Singapore in preference to earlier/later flights serviced by Boeing 777 aircraft to compare the A380. Unfortunately flight booked through co-share partner Virgin Australia and unable to pre-book seats, so confined to lower deck middle aisle at rear. Found seats cramped for leg/knee room, width about average, in flight entertainment a little behind but okay. Overall seat comfort average to a little below. Spoken with friend who have flown SIA on the top deck and had good reports and reviews - unable to confirm this. I think the 777 or 340 are a little better and would not go out of my way to fly A380 again unless on top deck.

"Very little leg room"

(United Kingdom)

Very little leg room for a 13 hour flight. The food was ok, the entertainment machine was very good, the service up and down with a bit of attitude. Overall a poor experience. Business seats were half empty but no offers of upgrade at check-in. We would have been happy to pay more to avoid the awful economy seats. Awful reclining seats so the person in front stuck the back of their seat in your face.

"Boeing 777-300ER a distinct improvement"

(New Zealand)

Old Boeing 777-200ER on the Christchurch to Singapore leg should be withdrawn from service as they are well past their "use by" date. The Boeing 777-300ER on Singapore to Amsterdam/Barcelona were a distinct improvement and would have no hesitation using this airline again if we were not subjected to poor A/C and facilities of the old stock.

"leg space quite inadequate"

(Australia)

Singapore Airlines seats were very narrow and leg space quite inadequate even for a short person like me. I found the seats on their older Boeing 777 200 to have more leg room and also wider and a lot more comfortable. Don't know if there has been a downsizing of the seat width and leg room resulting from the new premium economy seats being installed in the aircraft. Service from cabin staff was excellent. I would travel on selected flights in the future depending on the aircraft type. Would not use Singapore Airlines A380 economy again.

"very nice seat"

(Malaysia)

Very nice seat, you were able to move the cushion back and forth and not only the backrest. Did not see any power outlets other than the USB, but was not in need for it. However the iPod function does not work as I hoped, it picked random songs from the phone, no AirPlay.

"cabin was a bit worn out"

(Malaysia)

The cabin was a bit worn out, Singapore Airlines is currently retrofitting all of its 777 and my flight was just the "wrong" plane. They will soon introduce Premium Economy on the route to Sydney, so getting a retrofitted plane will be a safe bet on this route starting in middle of August.
