Elegantly furnished, each of the Singapore Airlines Suites
opens up to a plush and luxurious leather seat, which is almost a metre wide

and technology, each seat is upholstered by world-renowned Poltrona Frau in the finest leather, with an
elegant pumpkin finish.
The seat is fully adjustable, with a simple-to-use
electronic control panel to accommodate a variety of sitting and lounging
positions. For those who want to sleep, a full-sized flat bed, with plush
mattress, is built into each individual Singapore Airlines Suite, and does not

ensure customers can drift into peaceful and comfortable sleep. For couples
traveling, the beds in the middle two seats can be converted to an optional
The intelligent design of the full flat bed not only offers
customers the choice to rest in their preferred sleeping positions, but also
allows them to sit or lounge in bed as they might in the comfort and privacy of
their own home – with the option to read or catch movies on their personal 58
centimetre (23-inch) LCD screen.
For customers who need to catch up on work on board, their
Singapore Airlines Suite can be transformed into a stylish office in the sky.

777-300ER fleet last year.

will be even larger. Measuring 86 centimetres (34 inches) in width, the
