I know... I felt like it is a downgrade... I don't really like their suites or J seats..

This is an incredibly poorly thought out design. Who would want to sleep in full view of everyone on the plane? QR had better foresight with enclosed suites.

So no more 'get out, flip over and then zzz' while going from lazing to snoozing?

might start travelling with them again!

This still remains but the flip is done electronically instead of manually.

Donít think this is correct:

Handstitched full grain leather by Poltrona Frau. A seat that seamlessly reclines into a bed. And sculpted wings that support you while lounging, then flatten for the perfect nightís rest. So you can go from boardroom to bedroom at the push of a button.

A big miss at first glance to me. Suddenly hoping our honeymoon flights on SQ 25 next fall are the older Suites.

Lots of wasted space in F (why isn't the bed longer) and the exposed double bed in J is not appealing at all - would rather have a more private J next to one another (thinking CX / JL) as opposed to an almost fully exposed double bed J.

I honestly loved this newly created space! From the microsite, it looks comfortable and spacious to lounge, watch TV, eat and sleep!

For the business class seat, you still need to sleep at an angle though, double bed sleeping in a 'triangular' position, interesting.

Could the head of the bed be adjusted???? Notice that it's not totally flat in this picture.

I can't help but notice that both the Premium Economy and Economy seats have a contactless card reader.





This seems to be absent from both the Business and First photos which makes me wonder what will the Premium Economy and Economy passengers have to pay extra for but Business and First don't.

+1 An underwhelming effort from the carrier that First brought out the Suite concept. So much wasted space, and bland looking. Their original Suites have more character that the new product. And that business double bed being open like that, yikes. No privacy in that Business Class design.
