Thank you so much for starting this thread. I have absent from airliners.net for almost 2 weeks due to work and travels and when I returned, voila! I see this! What a welcome sight.

SQ 106 F 01MAR SINKUL business class, is it regional configuration?
There is no Business Class (JCL) per say between SIN and KUL. All premium classes are sold as First Class (PCL) and this is an agreement upheld by both SIA and MAS in their shuttle services ops. SQ normally deploys the 9V-SR* series which is a regional 2-class configured 777-212ER.

The return journey will operate via Dubai from Moscow on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while the non-stop flight will depart in the late evening on the other days, arriving into Singapore late the following morning.
This is strange. Is there a limit on the 77W's range that the return flight would have to fly via Moscow and Dubai? That would make a 2 stop journey very unattractive in my opinion. Reminds me of the long-range milkruns carriers used to do in the good old days. I remember JAL's multi stop to Middle East stopping by so many citues along the way like BKK, DEL, BAH etc.
