Of all the economy class seats this is probably the best. Not because the seat itself is any different, it is a mean, thin-shouldered, narrow arm-rested seat like the others; but because of the space around it, room to stow bags or your legs between it and the window. I would hate to do a longer flight than Bangkok to Singapore in any of the other economy seats.
The aircraft featured the new short-haul (i.e., intra-Asia) business class seats. To me, this was one of the worst business class seats I have experienced anywhere. The seat was very narrow, as has been noted before. The bed length also did not feel well-suited for tall people above 190 cm (6'2.5"). The foot well is rounded at the end, which takes further length away. I will avoid business class on SQ 787-10s until better seats are available.
Good seat, window next to the seat, quite good food.
Flying economy on the new B787-10 from SIN to BKK was really great! The seat is wide, foot length is pretty good and the entertainment option is one if the best. The TV screen is easily 19 inch! The head rest is adjustable as well somit can slide up and down to fit your head whether you are tall or short.
Paid for Extra Legroom seat at 58H on a night flight hoping to get some sleep. It was a terrible experience as the toilet was nearby and constantly a lot of people queueing for the toilet. On top of that, there was an stench that never dissipate. 787-10 is my least favorite flight.
Definitely the worst seat on the aircraft although its the 1st row with the biggest legroom in economy. The worst because the front wall stops at B, so there is front wall only for A & B seats. If you take the aisle seat C, then half your seat is in the path of all people walking. Therefore, all the crew, passengers, and the trollies will be hitting your foot when you stretch out especially on a night flight. The seat seemed to be narrower then regular SQ seats. Rest of the 1st row seats are OK, just avoid the aisle seats on the widow sides.
These seats are nowhere near 30in wide. My shoulders were rubbing both sides of the seat enclosure, which was not a problem at all in the A350, which supposedly only has 28in wide seats. These seats are much more "standard" business class seats, in the sense that you can recline down into a bed, rather than having to fold them forward to turn the seat into a bed. Besides the narrowness of the seats, they're quite comfortable and the tray table is much better located than on the A350. However, the foot cubbie is still tiny, but very deep. This means you get "stuck" when sleeping, which can be quite painful when you wake up. The flight I was on already showed a lot of wear and tear, which was quite surprising, as these planes are brand new.
Once seated, you notice the high-density, thinner seat cushions, which give you more perceived legroom than the standard 32 in pitch would suggest. Because SQ stayed with the 3-3-3 configuration, the seat width has to be narrower than the comparable A330 or B777 experience, and I certainly felt this was the case, despite the very narrow armrests. Certainly the aisles are narrow, and in the aisle seat, I was constantly jostled by passengers and assorted bags during the boarding process. I also found it hard to get comfortable on the thinner seats, though this was less of an issue for a short-haul flight.
Aircraft crowded. Poor/indifferent cabin service. Flight departed very late; meal service even later. Meal choice disappeared before this row in cabin. Seat close to toilets - can always hear flushing. Seat itself OK, but impossible to get out unless you can persuade both 56B and 56C to stand up and move first. I prefer the A350-900.
Dreamliner remains Dreamliner and this aircraft is not really made for 3-3-3 config in economy class, because all seats get narrow compared to an A350 for example. But you have to give credits to Singapore Airlines, because they did a good job on the 787 cabin compared to other airlines. Yes, the seat could be wider but at least I could avoid the shoulder-to-shoulder feeling when i was in the middle of 3 guys. The legroom is very decent and with my 1.98m size I even could put my legs under the seat in front and stretch and that´s something I can´t do everywhere. Also the ergonomic form of the seat makes it feel well sitting in there. So compared to other 787 experiences on other airlines SQ was so far the best Dreamliner trip I had in economy. On another flight I had 58B and this emergency exit row seat is too narrow. Don´t want to have this one again although you have more space to stretch.
Every uncomfortable flight for economy class due to the reduced seat width (even for an asian with a smaller body size).
Worst economy experience ever. Although an exit row seat it is obvious that to fit more passengers on the Dreamliner they have reduced seat size. Tray table flimsiest and smallest ever, seat hard and uncomfortable. Never again!
