What’s The Best Business Class Seat On Singapore Airlines?

by joeheg

I put little value in the travel advice given on TikTok or on Facebook Reels. Honestly, how much information can you provide in 1 minute or less? However, I occasionally see questions presented that I don’t know the answer to.

Such was this YouTube video informing passengers that business class seats on Singapore Airlines have narrow footwells but the bulkhead seats have much more space.

I knew this trick, as I booked two middle bulkhead seats on our business class Singapore Airlines A380 flight from JFK-FRA.

While I don’t usually sleep much on a transatlantic flight, I did manage to get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep.

That flight was about 8 hours. Our flights from Singapore to LAX and SFO are between 15-18 hours and will be some of the longest flights we’ll have ever taken. Undoubtedly, I’ll want to sleep at some time on the flight. So what seats should I pick in A350-900 Singapore Business Class?

According to the video, I need to pick a bulkhead or suffer from restricted legroom. Unfortunately, those seats are already blocked on our flights.

My choices are between two window seats, two middle seats, or a middle and a window. Despite the video saying the footwell is restrictive, this review shows that there is plenty of space for your feet.

For our connecting flight from SIN-SGN, we’re booked on a regionally configured A350 which has staggered seating.

As with the other flight, the bulkhead row is apparently blocked.

As a couple traveling together, what are our best choices on these flights? I can’t seem to find a consensus online and I seem to think that that we’ll have a great flight no matter which seats we choose.

Does anyone have experience flying on Singapore’s A350-900 Business Class? How bad is the angled footwell? Besides that, is there any part of the cabin that’s better than another?

Just took this aircraft two days ago. Depending on how you sleep (on your side or on your back) the angled footwell can be awkward. We traveled as a couple in the side singles. I’d recommend interior sinles (like 15 k or 20a) for the most privacy.

I’ve flown in this seat many times. Both in bulk head and the others. Bulkhead is way better. If you can get it. I think they block it for paying customers or maybe their Solitaire level customers.
The foot well is on the narrow side, but a bigger issue in my opinion is that the footwell is in the corner, so to use it you have to sit/sleep at an angle. Sleeping is not so bad, but sitting at an angle is not great.
