Hi David et al, I remember an old Ausbt article reporting that Singapore would have refurbished all their 777-300ER planes with the new biz/first class seating by September 2016. Does anyone know whether this refurb program was completed?

My understanding is that it has been (but can't seem to place my hands on any article confirming).The SIA website used to (circa mid 2015 when I last checked coz I was in the same boat!) list 4 seat maps for the 777-300ER. It's now only listing 2 seat maps.
http://www.singaporeair.com/en_UK/au/flying-withus/our-story/our-fleet/boeing-777-300er/Both are showing J Class with 1-2-1 seating which I think confirms the upgrade because the former was 2-2-2???

No, SQ already installed 1-2-1 Business Class in 2006 when they took delivery of 777-300ER.

And if you can avoid it, don't book the older ones at all, they are uncomfortable.

Having just returned from Europe in PE on SQ where 1 leg was on a 'new' 773, I have to say it was the most uncomfortable flight we had. The other 3 were A388's that were a lot more comfy.

Just flew MEL-SIN on 777-300ER with new for me business class seats. Grey livery. 1.2.1 layout and I have to say it is the worst business class seat I've ever had on SQ. Yes the bed is fully flat, laying across the bed, but in the seated position, I can touch the screen on the seat in front, and there is no front to back movement on the seat. The table arrangement is awful and unless you've a sylphlike frame, you cannot get the table into its square position. The opinion of the Stewardess of the plane was the same as mine, "terrible" as the galley has also been reduced in width she said and the crew cannot work as easily in it as in the older seat. I took a few pictures to show the space and the lack of it for sitting and working.
