Mini-Review: Singapore Airlines 2018 Regional Business ‘Love Seats’

We took a close look at the 'love seats' on the Singapore Airlines 787-10 to check their suitability for couples travelling together - and those who end up sitting there alongside a stranger

Love Seats

On Tuesday we published our full review of the new Singapore Airlines regional business class product on the day it entered commercial service between Singapore and Bangkok. The new cabin, as installed on the latest 787-10 aircraft, features 36 seats in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct aisle access for all passengers, which also convert into fully flat beds.

Needless to say we were very impressed with the step change from the older ‘2009 RJ’ regional business class seat and despite a few drawbacks we think passengers will be really happy with this new seat and should seek it out where possible as an alternative to ‘2009 RJ’ as it’s rolled out across the regional fleet.

On Tuesday’s flight we had the advantage of securing two of the ‘window’ seats, one more closely aligned with the window itself (seat 12K) and the one behind which still features a window but is more exposed to the aisle (seat 14K).
