11A Aisle Pano

Updated: 12th September 2019

With five different Business Class seats installed across the Singapore Airlines fleet, one of the most common questions we are asked by Mainly Miles readers is what kind of seat they will have on their upcoming flight, or which flight to pick on a particular routing to ensure they secure a certain seat type.

We’ve updated our list through the end of the northern winter 2019/2020 season (i.e. to the end of March 2020) to help you avoid the guesswork by offering an A-Z destination list, flight number by flight number, seat type by seat type.

The seats

Singapore Airlines is currently flying five different types of Business Class seat across its fleet. Here’s a quick recap of what they are, or an introduction for those not familiar.

Non-Singapore routes

If you’re flying Business Class with Singapore Airlines on a flight sector not originating or ending in Singapore, here are the seat types used on those services.

Substitutions do occur

The data for this information is based on GDS timetables and programmed seat layouts and is correct at 12th September 2019. We keep it regularly updated to ensure it’s a useful long-term reference whenever aircraft types or seat types on a route change.

Do bear in mind that the list may not be 100% up to date at all times and Singapore Airlines always reserves the right to substitute a different aircraft type last minute on any flight due to operational requirements. This can occur even on the day of operation, so you’re never guaranteed a particular seat type until you get on board.

Changes happen too

You’re never immune from an aircraft type / seat type change when you book a flight with Singapore Airlines, especially if you book a long time in advance – for example 10 or 11 months out.

The data above is based on the aircraft types and seat layouts in the current published timetable, however SIA may already be planning to switch aircraft types for your routing especially in the next season, where the schedule can be considered largely provisional.

For example if you’re booking an A350 Business Class flight to Brisbane in March 2020 and expecting the 2013 J seat as currently programmed on one of the daily flights, don’t be too surprised if you find that later changes to an A350 with the 2018 RJ seat.

How to be sure

You can use the seat map for the flight you are interested in on the Singapore Airlines website to verify the Business Class seat type being used. You can view this information prior to committing to booking, however you will have to enter some details first.

Alternatively a free subscription to ExpertFlyer also includes the ability to view the seat maps for specific Singapore Airlines flights.

Once you have the seat map, see our guide for the aircraft type to determine which Business Class seat it’s referring to:

First Class

We have an equivalent guide showing where the four different First Class seat and Suite types are flying around the SIA network. Check out our First Class seat types by route article here.

  1. Hi there

    The Sydney flight description has seat type 2006 J listed for SQ 222 as “From 2 Aug”

    Is this supposed to read “Until 1 August”?

    1. No it’s correct. SQ222/231 currently has the 2017 J seats until 1st August 2019. From 2nd August 2019 it reverts to an older aircraft with 2006 J seats.

      Hope it helps!

  2. Looking at the Phuket routes, you show the 2009RJ seat until October. Is there any information about that route after? I just received notification my flight was switched from MI760 to SQ992 in Feb 2020. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Scott. We’re not seeing any changes loaded in the schedules yet on the Phuket route. Which date in Feb are you travelling?

    2. GDS has now been updated. 777-200ER (2006 J seats) now replaces SilkAir on this flight from 27th October 2019 to 31st January 2020, then 777-200 (2009 RJ seats) from 1st February 2020 to 28th March 2020.
