But this would negate the benefits of better food on Raffles. The seats in Raffles were less comfortable than expected and a conversation with the raffles FA revealed that he and many others felt economy was better "value" on this specific flight
I concur. I have flown SIN-LAX in both Raffles and Exec Econ and I would not pay a large premium for Raffles. That said, both of my flights in Exec Econ have been mid week with the seat open next to me. I think if I were to fly as a "single" in a full Raffles class and not be in the middle section, I'd feel quite put out.
