The Seat

The newest Singapore Airlines Business Class seats ‘2017 J’ are fitted exclusively on the latest A380 Version 3 aircraft.

Compared with the older 2013 J and 2006 J seats, these newer 2017 J examples feature a larger privacy shell providing better shielding them from the aisle.

Two of the seats are located individually by the window at the A and K positions, while the middle pair at D and F is more suited to couples, though a large privacy divider is installed in case you’re seated in one of these seats while travelling solo.

Despite being slightly narrower than the 2013 J seat we think the new features and finish of this product give it the edge as the best business class seat in the fleet.

How to know if your flight has 2017 J

You’ll have to be travelling on a Singapore Airlines A380 in Business Class which displays the following seat map:

A388v3-J
A380 Version 3 Business Class Seat Map

The last row number on the seat map is the quick way to determine the seat type fitted – it has to be row 97. If the seat map instead goes up to row 27 or row 96 in this cabin, you’ll have the older 2006 J product.

Where to sit
