A good seat if you want to recline and not feel guilty about it. Relatively spacious for modern economy class as would be expected on SQ. Window is located well so that the frame lines up with your shoulder if you want to sleep against the wall. Being near the window in three abreast means the toilets are a bit less disruptive. As mentioned in another review of the same row, there is a storage compartment directly across the aisle which has a bright light inside - if you are flying at night the light will shine on you every time the crew opens the compartment.
B777 26-27April SQ325 - Atrocious food (very poor quality and cold -even worse when same meals eventually returned after reheating). Aircraft well past its prime e.g. seats in poor shape - uncomfortable with very limited legroom. Very poor in-flight service and attitude, and all but non existant service during the night. Toilets not cleaned regularly enough. Not what we've come to expect from Singapore Airlines.
I sat on this seat from Singapore to Brisbane. Seat was a bit flimsy, the armrest didn't want to stay in the "up" position, on the other hand, the seat went into automatic "recline" whenever I leaned back - making me feel sorry for the poor person sitting behind me. Legroom would have been okay, hadn't there been that annoying little black box on the right hand side on the floor which limited my leg room considerably. I wouldn't pick this seat again. Crew was very attentive and friendly as usual when flying Singapore Airlines.
Great legroom seat but got disturbed many times with other passengers waiting to use the toilets. This was only a minor irritation as legroom more than made up for it. TV monitor cones up from the floor so always have to look down to watch .
The seat was very narrow and uncomfortable and there was little legroom. The armrests were too short and too narrow so my arm was out in the aisle. Premium Economy on this aircraft is not worth the extra money...won’t do it again. I had only just connected with this flight after flying from LHR on the A 380 which was far more comfortable.
Storage shelves behind all 8 seats of Row 33 is noisy and disruptive for pax in those seats. 4 bassinet points behind the storage shelves ensure no peace with screeching babies on board. In contrast, there is space for only 1 bassinet in the latter part of the Economy section. Despite the perceived misalignment, there was no issue with the meal carts. This aircraft has a severe shortage of toilets in the PEY and EY sections (5 to be exact), and the sinks are always struggling to empty water.
Seat is much worse as other Premium Economy Seats at Singapore Airlines. I‘m 190 cm tall and I‘m not able to strech my legs as the seats do not have a lot of space below the seats. Also the Seat in front is much closer as for example in the A380. Too bad! Do not recommend to choose this flight.
The galley and lavatory aren't really an issue. For one, the aft galley is the main galley used by the crew for food prep while the fore galley is just used on takeoff and landing for crew seating and storage. The lavatory is in front of the galley by the flight deck, far enough from row 11 that it isn't an issue. Row 11, and specifically 11D & F, might be the best seats in business class as you get substantially more legroom than a standard business class seat.
This seat has one window and is mostly a wing view. The premium economy seat on the A350 is different from the Singapore Airlines 777 and A380 seats. It may be slightly narrower and with a slightly reduced space between seats, but it is still a very good seat. Being at a divider with economy, this seat still had full recline and has a full overhead bin because of how it is only within Premium Economy and regular economy passengers cannot use it. The seat is close to the bassinet in regular economy.
Great Aeroplane, excellent food and service as always with Singapore Airlines, but that seat, whilst great in the various seating modes is awful as a bed, difficult to get down and if you have to get up once lying down, it is a mission
The TV arm is against one's left leg and depending on how you keep your legs during the flight, digs into your thigh or your knee. There is no power charging capability for this seat, you need to lean over and use the power underneath the middle seat which is just below and to the right of 48Ks left armrest. If the person in 47J puts his belongings on the floor or places his legs to the right, you may not be able to get up to use the loo if they are sleeping.
According to seatguru, this seat has extra leg room, which isn't really the case, as the wall between business and premium economy actually gives you slightly less leg room. That said, if the seat pocket mounted on the wall was a centimeter wide on top, you could comfortably rest your legs on it. As it is now, it can be done, but it's not that comfortable. The seat is not narrower due to the tray table being in the armrest, as all the seats in premium economy has the tray table in the arm rest. Seats E and F has a movable arm rest between them, which none of the other seats in premium economy has. Biggest complain inho is the poor leg rests, as I was unable to use them, since they didn't come up high enough. This seems to be quite common in premium economy and makes you wonder why they even bother adding them. Meals were decent, if not great.
Singapore Airlines have very odd business class seats indeed. They're not that comfortable to sit in, as they're actually too wide, so you don't get much support. If you want to put your feet up, you need to sit at a weird angle, as the the foot cubbie/leg rest is in the far corner. Bed mode entails getting out the seat and folding down the seat back. The duvet and pillow are also located here. A plus in bed mode is that there's a separate seat belt, which is much more comfortable than using the regular seat belt in other business class cabins I've flown. The "bed" is quite firm, but I was fine with that. It also has less "bumps" due to it largely being a single piece. Again, you have to sleep at an odd angle, with your head in one corner and your feet in the other. The foot cubbie is very small. Overall a pleasant enough flight, although the dinner meal was kind of disappointing. Breakfast was far superior, which imho is unusual.
Excellent seat no baby bassinets in forward Business section only in second business section. perfect service and food. Foot well was width of seats, no angled sleeping necessary!
You sit somewhat "boxed in" @ 44K, hard to get in and out from the side of 47J. Same goes exiting through the same row since IFE is blocking
Plenty of leg room but the seats don’t recline very far. The arm rests don’t fold up.
There are missing overhead bins in the middle section of seats from rows 58 and back, causing the side bins to get crowded. On a 16 hour transcontinental flight, it's nice not to have anything under the seat ahead of you if possible, and normally this isn't an issue on these larger planes. However was problematic for these back rows in the center without the middle set of overhead bins.
Video on Demand storage box is part of the seat and protrudes in to the back of your legs. Makes the leg width very narrow and you have to sit on an angle
I sat in a premium economy seat on an A350-900. This A350 seat loses its seat pitch advantage over economy as you recline because the seat base slides forward and your knees can contact the seat in front. There is also a large black box under the seat in front(presumably for the entertainment system etc) which reduces the foot space dramatically. This 186cm man was not impressed especially considering SQ's premium economy seat on their 777 is much much better. Will avoid A350s.
I am large person 120Kg 176 cm and found this seat to be great, plenty of leg room, the trolley they use is narrow and not hitting into me (like other airlines), the service was fantastic, was close to toilets when needed, just a great flight, would highly recommend
