I will be flying to Bali again in September and when I logged in to my KrisFlyer account today to select my seats (even though I have already booked this flight a long time ago), I realised that the seat map in Business Class has now been replaced with a 1-2-1 configuration (as opposed to a 2-2-2 one that I have previously taken). Since Singapore Airlines is planning to replace the older A330-300s with the new 787-10 Dreamliners, this can only mean one thing (I think!) - my flight in September is going to be on the brand new Regional Business Class product!
Ask anyone who have taken the brand new Regional Business Class product on Singapore Airlines and most of them will have nothing but good things to say. Putting the brand new 787-10 Dreamliner on the SIN-DPS route is extremely exciting (since I personally fly this route multiple times a year) and even though Bali is technically a Zone 2 redemption on the award chart, it is actually a decent 2-hour flight and this 1-2-1 cabin configuration will be much-welcomed change. At the time of writing, I am not sure whether Singapore Airlines will be replacing all their A330-300s with the new 787-10 Dreamliner but for now SQ942 in September is looking good!
