The Boeing 777-300 fleet usually operates short regional flights – mainly shuttling between Singapore and Jakarta or Manila. Note that this (small) fleet is not to be confused with the Boeing 777-300ER, which is covered separately on this page.

The 777-300 aircraft are configured with 8 First Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, 50 Business Class seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, and 226 Economy Class seats in a 3-3-3 configuration.
777-300 First Class
The First Class cabin on the 777-300 comprises two rows of seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, providing direct aisle access to all passengers. It’s fitted with the 2006 F seat which is now a little dated, but very comfortable for the shorter sectors this aircraft is generally now used for.
For couples the C / D middle pairs would be the obvious choice, while for solo travellers the window seats (A and F) make perfect sense. We would have a slight preference for row 1 over row 2, in that it is slightly further away from the main business class galley directly behind row 2. Seat 2A also has a bassinet position, so the right side (F) seats will provide a little more distance from a potential screaming infant, though it’s unlikely in this cabin.
As mentioned above, row 2 may suffer from a little more noise and foot traffic around the galley and toilets, but it’s likely to be marginal.
777-300 Business Class
The SIA 777-300s are fitted with their regional business class product (again, remember we are not talking about the 777-300ER here, which all have flat-bed 1-2-1 seating).
Regional business is a 2-2-2 configuration with 172-degree recline (almost flat, but not quite!). That gives rise to three main concerns – aisle access, privacy, and, perhaps most importantly, sleeping. Luckily the 777-300 is now predominantly used on short flights so this shouldn’t be a significant issue.
For a short daytime flight it’s certainly quite acceptable, especially when travelling as a couple. Overnight it’s one to avoid due to the angled bed (good enough for a daytime snooze in our opinion, but not conducive to a good night’s sleep).
Travelling solo, these seats aren’t great for privacy. There is a reasonably-sized privacy divider between each seat pair, but it doesn’t afford you the seclusion of the newest business class seats in the fleet, or of the first class seats on this aircraft.
Toilets are available at the rear and front of this cabin.
