Singapore Airlines today launched a fourth First Class offering for customers travelling to and from Sydney with the deployment of a refitted Boeing 777-300 on flight SQ 242/241.
Starting from this evening SQ242 will provide customers with eight First Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.
Singapore Airlines’ Regional Vice President, Mr Tan Tiow Kor said he expected the introduction of a First Class cabin on Sydney’s evening flight to Singapore to be warmly welcomed by customers.
“With the deployment of the refitted 777-300 aircraft on SQ 241 and SQ 242 we are now able to provide more premium cabin options for our customers,” Mr Tan said.
“I am sure the additional First Class offering, as well as the increased number of Business Class seats on the refitted 777-300 will be welcomed by our customers.
“The Diamond Plus First Class seat is one of the most luxurious in the sky and offers the choice of relaxing with 130 degree incline or alternatively a fully flat bed.”
The refitted 777-300 will provide customers the option of 8 First Class, 50 Business Class and 226 Economy Class seats.
From this evening customers wishing to depart Sydney will have a choice of flying on either Singapore Airlines’ flagship Airbus A380 aircraft, the newly deployed refitted 777-300 or a 777-300ER.
