SIA Seats: 2017 R & J Tracker

This is our seat tracker for the Singapore Airlines new suites (2017 R) and business class seat (2017 J), both of which entered commercial service on the Airbus A380 in December 2017.

These products are being progressively rolled out on various routes as new A380 aircraft are delivered directly from Airbus. From late 2018 the older A380 aircraft will also be retrofitted with these products.

Click here to read our full review of the new 2017 business class on the A380, with our review of the new suites cabin coming soon.

This page will be updated as new routes are announced, using the GDS timetables and/or information from Singapore Airlines.

Some provisional information on future routes is based on our own contact. Though reliable, until it is confirmed it should be treated with caution. Dates in particular can slip.

Timings are based on the northern summer schedules, so for routes continuing after 28th October 2018 some of the schedules will differ slightly, though flight numbers remain correct.

How to be sure

As these schedules are subject to change and aircraft equipment swaps can be made for operational reasons, you can assure yourself of the new suites and business class products by checking the seat map for your flight on the Singapore Airlines website.

It will look like this if your flight has the new suites product operated by the A380 Version 3:

A388v1-R

It will look like this if your flight has the new business product operated by the A380 Version 3:

A388v3-J.jpg

Note – for business class the quick way to tell you have the new 2017 J is the number of rows. If the seat map goes up to row 97 – it’s the 2017 J. If it goes to row 27 or row 96 – that’s the (much) older 2006 J seat.

Where to sit?
