The upgrades is scheduled to commence in May 2020 and it will feature new lie-flat Business Class seats in a forward-facing staggered layout (in line with what Singapore Airlines offer on its regional Business Class on its A350-900 medium-haul as well as 787-10 fleets). SilkAir currently has five 737 MAX 8s and there are another 32 on order. This upgrade programme will also see the installation of new seat-back in-flight entertainment systems in both Business Class as well as Economy Class.
