This new A380 configuration has an all business class upper deck, taking out the economy section seen on the older configuration.
There are 12 first class seats in the quietest nose section of the main deck, and the upper deck business class is 1-2-1 throughout.
Economy is configured 3-4-3 in three large cabins on the main deck.
SIA is installing its new KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system on all A380s by the end of 2014.
The new system, which is across all classes, includes an enlarged LCD screen and video touch-screen handsets. The screens measure 24-inches in first class (versus the current 23), 18-inches in business class (increased from 15.4) and 11.1-inches in economy (compared to the previous 10.6).
The interface also allows passengers to multi-task. While watching a movie on the big monitor, the touchscreen on the handset can be set up to show news headlines or the flight path. The touchscreen works as a trackpad for navigating the IFE KrisWorld and, at a flick, the handset can pull up a playlist. The system can also give recommendations based on reviews and ratings by fellow passengers. It will likewise reduce the inconvenience of screen freeze for in-flight announcements, often repeated in several languages, with the Notification Centre on the system dashboard offering the information.
