I was looking at the new SQ 777 interior pic that was recently posted, it seems that SQ's seats seem larger than that of say, UA. I doubt that it is the angle of the shot or the pax size because they seem average to me. Has SQ added comfort to the 772ER? And can anyone take more pictures of the interiors if they fly?

On a related theme... I note that there are more two-class 9VSR_ IGW series aircraft than three class 9VSQ_ series aircraft. Where do the SR_ series operate to? SIN-FUK, SIN-FUK-HIJ, SIN-NGO, SIN-KUL, SIN-BNE and SIN-ADL are the obvious ones. Any others?

There is a mistake in the pic. 9V-SQD is not an ER. The seats in the ER versions are different from the ones in the SQ and SR series. SQ772 is on a trip now to US and will return on the ORD-AMS-SIN flight on an ER so lets hope that he will take some photos and they would be good enough to be posted on a.net!

I flew one of SQ's 777-200s (QH) and is had these seats, they gave the impression that they were bigger in comparison to the 777-300 (YF), although the seats have things like lumbar support, etc. Can someone tell me if the one I described on the 777-300 are the newer seats?

I can confirm that they are both different seats. SQ installed 2 different kind of seats on both the B772 and B773. The B772ER (9V-SVX series) have the best seats comparing to the B772 SQ and SQ series plus the B773. When you know that the SV series have 255 seats only in Y and when there are 293 seats on the SR series you'll get what i mean! Also if I am correct, there are 2 more toilets on the SV series, making a total number of 8.

The First Class load overall was not good on the Perth run, that said when the seats were occupied I'm unsure of the yield.
First Class is still offered on B777s to Kansai but only on the flights via Taipei.
Sometimes a 3 class SQ or SY aircraft is planned on these routes for any number of reasons but the First Class cabin is normally closed off. Because of the different configurations and number of seats though in some cases First Class has to be used as Business Class and Business Class used for economy.

Interesting, Trev. I flew on:
772 - SQA, SQB
773 - SYA, SYB
When you say they're different, do you mean the fabric or the shape of the seat in general?
I remember the the 777's (well, at least the ones I've flown on) have a little finger grip at the bottom of the PTV screen to adjust the viewing angle. The PVT's on the 744's have a flat black base without the finger grip.
777's have height adjustalbe headrests with wings, while on the 744 this is absent.
The seats on the 777 are noticable wider and a lot more confortable compared with the 744, and definitely have greater pitch, in my opinion.
Tell us more about the differences you noticed, Trev! I'm sure some of us would be pretty interested to know.

Hello there Andrew,
I did actually write about this quite a while back, but over time you tend to forget.
The 744's do have the adjustable headrest with wings, as I used them on the 4 744's I flew from Hong Kong To London and back (Via Singapore of course)
The shape of the seat was different, very different, more individual if you ask me and not touching each other. The seats are nothing like the 747's, look like SQ have many different types of seats...Here is a picture of a similar looking seat on the 773 (YF) I flew:
On the SQ 773 seats, there are two little pockets on either side of the TV, I assume you are to put the head-phones in them or pens, and other small items.
There is in fact, lumbar support (lower back) which is adjustable, and you can adjust the height of the front of the seat, because it is filled with air...Like a balloon, which enables you to stretch out for a nap (of if you need more room between the forward seat )
The seat appears to be a lot thinner and more individual than that of what I had on the 772(GH). I also might add that on the 773(YF), the Wiseman 3000 Kris world entertainment system had been enabled, meaning Audio and Video on Demand (AVOD) entertainment, which the 772 did not have. A nice little feature is the drink holder, you don't have to let the whole table down to put your drink on it, you just have to pull a cup-holder located on the underside of the table (when it's placed in the upward position of course).
I would say, although the 772 seats were much more...comfortable looking, they were rather basic in terms of what the 773 had to offer as I earlier described. But I think that they should keep the larger-looking seats but somehow install the items that the 773 has to offer.

I flew 9V-SVC back in early October 2001 from Amsterdam to Chicago. Understandably, the plane was not even half-full. It was, of my 300+ commercial airline flights, the best of all. The plane was then SQ's newest 777, and it was spotless inside and out. The inflight entertainment system was awesome, featuring on-demand movies and interactive trivia (I even won a round and was shocked when the head FA came by to present me with a prize for winning!). I was hoping the plane would be painted in that special 'Jubilee' scheme, but I have come to realize that this paint scheme is (or was) only on one aircraft.
I flew a SQ 747-400 (9V-SMM) over to Amsterdam from Newark. This flight also was about half-full, although the plane (to me at least) seemed a bit tired-looking.

Sorry to say that I didn't take any pics onboard the 777ER (I was too pissed off and uncomfortable to take any pics). But the seat instructions that I will be passing to you will give you a good idea of what the seats look like. The ultimo Plus seats are also slightly different on the 777ER in terms of the armrest design.
I did take a pic of the new serviceware on SQ and posted it on airlinemeals.net last night. It is not out yet, but expect it to be uploaded in 3 days time. I do hope airlinemeals.net is not as stringent as airliners.net when it comes to pictures members post.
