IN BRIEF | While Singapore Airlines' new Airbus A380s will feature all-new first class suites and business class seats, premium economy passengers won't notice a great deal of difference from the airline's Airbus A380s already flying today.
The biggest change is that instead of sitting directly behind first class on the lower deck, premium economy will be planted in the nose of the A380, where 'Suites Class' currently lives, as SQ's Suites are moving upstairs.
Down in premium economy, the seats themselves are as you'd expect: configured in a 2-4-2 arrangement, with the same 38-inch pitch at a width of up to 19.5 inches.
In front of each seat is a 13.3-inch full HD monitor for enjoying the latest movies and TV shows, while each passenger has their own AC power port for keeping laptops and large tablets recharged, plus two USB power ports for smaller devices.
There's also a personal reading light, cocktail table and stowage space for personal items like water bottles and mobile phones, with each seat offering a padded legrest and reclining up to eight inches.
The new superjumbos will feature 44 premium economy seats all up, a slight increase to the current count of 36 to 38 seats.
