In the 2018 RJ seat design a ‘staggered 1-2-1’ layout is used where in bed mode your feet go partly underneath the console of the seat in front.
That means the seat rows can be closer together, allowing the airline to increase capacity while retaining direct aisle access for all passengers. A full flat bed is also offered, for the first time in the Singapore Airlines Regional Business Class.
At the window seats on the left (A) or right (K) of the cabin, rows alternate between window-aligned seats with the storage console positioned between the seat and the aisle and aisle-aligned seats with the storage console between the seat and the window.
In the middle section, seat pairs stagger between outer pairs (the ‘divorce seats’) and inner pairs (the ‘love seats’) at each row.
This seat is a significant upgrade on the ‘sloped bed’ 2009 RJ product, as it converts to a fully-flat 76″ bed for longer flights.
The 2009 RJ will remain fitted on the A330 aircraft and regional 777 fleet as they are both due for retirement in the coming years, so looking out for aircraft with this new 2018 RJ configuration is strongly recommended. Check our 2018 RJ tracker page to find out which routes it’s flying now and in future.
