The Seat

The Singapore Airlines Business Class ‘2006 J’ seats are fitted on all 777-200ER aircraft, A380 Version 1 & 2 aircraft and the small fleet of non-refurbished 777-300ERs (Version 1 aircraft).

These seats boast a huge width of 34″ each – the widest business class product in the sky. It’s maybe too wide as the trend for Singapore Airlines has been to reduce the seat width in more recent evolutions like the 2013 J and 2017 J products on their latest long-haul aircraft.

The seat is so wide it comfortably fits two children side-by-side and it’s not much of a squeeze for two smaller adults either. The armrests are so far apart Singapore Airlines had to add a ‘bolster cushion’ at the seat side to act as one of your armrests.

How to know if your flight has 2006 J

If you’re travelling in business class on a 777-200ER your flight will have this seat. Remember the 1-2-1 configuration – don’t be confused with the 777-200 (non-ER), which are fitted with the older regional product 2009 RJ. A 2-2-2 layout on the seat map will give that away.

On a 777-300ER where the seat map features rows 11 to 22 you’ll have this seat, if it goes up to row 23 you’ve got 2013 J.

Finally on the A380 if the seat map in business goes up to row 27 or 96 you have this seat, if it goes up to row 97 however you have the newer 2017 J.
