"no seat recline at all"

(Singapore)

I got the last seat on the plane furthest back. Avoid this seat at all cost - no seat recline at all! Conclusion unless you are in first or business class go somewhere else and do not pay a premium for a company which in fact does not provide you any extra service / experience.

"less seats and less people"

(Indonesia)

Similar to some earlier comments the seats were really hard unlike SQ's 777-300ER that I normally flew. The only advantage of flying this A380 is you notice less noise on the cabin. The mood lighting was not that great because it was set only to red and orange LED all the time. My seat was on the upper deck with less seats and less people. I think it is always better to choose such seats. Being seated at the last two rows nearby the toilet (82E) might not be really pleasant due to the smell.

"after 5-6 hours my rear is just numb"

(Singapore)

The new SQ seats are hard. I fly regularly the SIN-Paris leg on Economy and after 5-6 hours my rear is just numb I have to get up to let the blood flow. Not only is the seat hard but the extremely limited incline of the backrest only allows your back to rest in a technically still sitting position. And that is hard for a 12-13 hour journey. I don't understand how SQ could have gotten this part so wrong.

"seat was nice and square shaped"

(New Zealand)

B777-300ER AKL-SIN and B777-200ER SIN-DEL. The 777-200 Economy Class seat was nice and square shaped meaning that it was not narrow like the new Singapore Airlines Economy Class. And it had more leg room and better lumbar support. I think the older Economy Class is much better than the new one.

"seats are solid yet not uncomfortable"

(United Kingdom)

I prebook my seat Row 42 or 43 as I use the toilets frequently due to a medical condition. I always find that the seats are solid yet not uncomfortable. Plenty of luggage storage above the seat and accessibility easy too. Egress from the seat is easy and the service is second to none.

"fell far short"

(South Africa)

Fell far short of the standards expected on Singapore Airlines. Two weeks later my knees still ache.

"find the width of the seat quite uncomfortable"

(Singapore)

Being small I find the width of the seat quite uncomfortable. Did not recline my seat because of children seated behind. Once the seat in front is reclined the space is even more restricted and stepping out of your seat proved more challenging. If I can help it will not fly on A330 but unfortunately it's the kind of aircraft that SQ flies for the Taipei route.

"find the seats small"

(United States)

The 747 is an old product I find the seats small compared to the newer 777 by SQ. I like the arm rests folds up and I managed to lie flat over 4 seats.

"the padding was thin"

(Canada)

The padding was thin and I needed to use the pillow as a lumbar support. The combination slide-forward/recline is a good compromise that limits intruding into someone's space when reclining your seat. I wish they would have stuck with the 34 inch pitch found on their 777-200's. Those extra two inches really do make a difference.

"found it extremely difficult to sleep"

(Australia)

The flight attendants were very kind and the food was good but the seats were like sitting on a rock. It was extremely cramped and I found it extremely difficult to sleep during the flight. I'm of a small stature and even I felt cramped. The in-flight pillows and blanket were scratchy. Their Boeing 777-300ER's are slightly better. If you ever go in economy sit on the in-flight pillows to create blood flow but use your own pillow or a jacket for your head if you are going to try to sleep on the flight.
