SIA Fleet: Boeing 777-200ER

The SIA 777-200ER fleet currently operates in a single configuration, with 26 of the 2006 J Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, and 245 Economy Class seats in a mostly 3-3-3 configuration.

Note 5th February 2018: 9V-SVF with the old ‘Spacebed’ business class seats has been retired from revenue service. There is therefore only one 777-200ER version now flying, the Version 1 aircraft. This page has been updated to reflect the changes.

How can I tell which Version I am flying on?

There’s only one version of the 777-200ER in operation with Singapore Airlines.

If you’re flying Business Class the seat map should show a 1-2-1 layout.

If you’re flying Economy Class, the seat map should show a 3-3-3 configuration all the way to the last row (row 59).

If the seat map does not resemble either of the above options, it’s possible you’re flying on a 777-200 (non-ER), click here for details.

777-200ER Business Class

Business Class on the 777-200ER is the best business product available on any of the Singapore Airlines 777-200 aircraft, the 2006 J seat which converts to a fully flat bed in 1-2-1 configuration.

The business cabin occupies the front area between the first and second main aircraft doors, with six rows in total (seven for the middle pairs), for a total of 28 seats. Two toilets are located at the back of this cabin, not a bad passenger-to-toilet ratio, even when two pilots have to use them too.

Best Seats

Row 11, the first row in this cabin, is at the bulkhead and so has more space, especially for your feet as the “cubby hole” style footwell found in other seat rows is gone – replaced by a spacious full-width bench which also makes the bed bigger once the seat is converted. In these seats there is no need to extend your legs at an angle while sleeping.

However, be aware that the window seats at this row (11A and 11K) are also infant bassinet positions.

Also note that row 11 is blocked for advance seat selection until 96 hours prior to flight departure time on all 777-200ER aircraft, unless you are a PPS Club member.

Worst Seats

Rows 17 & 18: The very last rows of business class, these are directly in front of the two toilets for this cabin, so will have more foot traffic, and may also suffer increased noise from the first row of the economy class cabin directly behind, which is also a bassinet position. Avoid.

777-200ER Economy Class Seat Map

Economy class is split across a larger forward section, and a smaller rear cabin. Six toilets are all located between the two sections, at the third main set of aircraft doors.

Both economy cabins are served from a large galley at the back of the plane.

Best Seats

In the forward cabin, which suffers from the least foot traffic, extra legroom seats can be found at row 31, but beware the bassinet positions across four of the seats in this row.

There are also two ‘couple pairs’ in the forward cabin, a rarity on this aircraft in economy, seats 47 A/C and 47 H/K. Both pairs are generally well-reviewed, with the 47 A/C pair a better bet as there is a cupboard rather than a toilet directly behind. These are probably the best couple pairs available in economy on this aircraft.

In the rear cabin seats 48 A/C have extra legroom, but are close to the main toilet area and are reported to have a large volume of passenger congregation around them. Seats 49 A/C are also a couple pair and a bit better in the traffic respect, but don’t feature the extra legroom.

Seat 50C has no seat in front of it, and so has ample extra legroom, though is still close to the toilets. It is also close to three infant bassinet positions in the same row.

Worst Seats

Row 35 A/K seats: For the window seats at row 35, the window is missing. If you’re a fan of the view outside, or just plain claustrophobic, avoid.

Seat 48A: Despite being a ‘couple pair’, the window is missing. It is also close to a main bank of toilets with reports of queuing around this area.

Row 59: This is the last row on the plane, and is located right in front of the main rear economy galley, meaning lots of foot traffic and potentially noise around these seats. Avoid.


What did we miss? If you have personal experience of specific seats to favour or avoid on this aircraft, please let us know in the comments section below, and we’ll certainly try to incorporate your feedback.

  1. Hi,.
    May i know which version B777 fly to Istanbul? I hope SQ will replace it sooner. Hopefully will replace it with Boeing 787-10 as the Newer Regional Biz Class is outstanding.

      1. It’s a possibility but there have been no announcements yet. We need to see the SIA fleet delivery plan (published in March) for FY19/20 (Apr19-Mar20), which will also help us to see how many of the older aircraft like 777-200ERs are set for retirement, before making any judgments on when IST could switch to another type.

  2. Hi Franklin, the 777-200ER flies to Istanbul (there is only one version in service now). It has the 2006 J seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Quite comfortable but yes, the new regional business class would probably be nicer overall. No plans for the 787 to fly to Istanbul have been announced however.

    1. The B772ER business class seat is wider and more comfortable compared to B787. It will be wise to deploy the B772ER to Istanbul as passengers comfort is of utmost important

  3. Hi there! Thanks for this info. I would like to clarify whether the 2006 economy seats you were talking about all have the 2006 IFE system or the 2001/2002 IFE. I read in some forum that only two of the 77Es have the 2006 IFE system.

  4. Hi, I would like to find out if the Economy seats on Singapore Airlines’ remaining 777-200ER aircrafts are the 2006Y seats or the refurbished older (pre-2006) seats? This is because on some other websites they show the Y seats to have no power points which the 2006Y product should have.

    1. Hi Darren. I have to admit we’re not Economy Class experts, but according to SQTalk which is usually a reliable source only 2 of the 777-200ERs have the 2006Y seat, the other 5 have refurbished Y.

      However they also don’t list 9V-SVE which is definitely still flying – that’s apparently also refurbished Y. So summary would be 2 with power sockets, 6 without.

      Hope it helps!

      1. No worries! I will definitely check out SQTalk and do more searching. It was quite a bummer when flying on the 772s as the upgrade from the old Spacebed seats to the 2009 RJ was quite a significant change but for Economy they only refurbished the old seats

  5. Good evening. We have just booked a 6.10pm flight from Brisbane to Singapore on the 28/12/19 and have read some terrible reviews on the old style business class. Are you able to confirm which product we will be getting? Thanks

    1. Hi Matt,

      2006 J on this one, unless more A350 Regionals are assigned to that route which is a possibility by December this year, in which case possibly 2018 RJ.

      1. Was wondering why everyone seems to think that IST will in the end get the RJ product? No chance for 2013 J like CHC did?
