From my personal experience, flying with Singapore Airlines Business Class on their Boeing 777 is a joke because we need to sleep “senget” (twisted sideways). It is the same for their Airbus A350 and A380!
Check out the Live Travel Reports below with Singapore Airlines Business Class and see for yourself that my sister and my disciples all had to sleep senget unless they are seated at the bulk head.

From all the Live Travel Reports above, it makes no difference if we are flying with Boeing 777 or Airbus A380 because we need to sleep senget!
Last month (May 2019), when I was searching for a return flight from Melbourne to KL for this month (June 2019), so happened I was able to redeem a Business Class flight out of Brisbane with substantial less air miles. So, if God wants me to go to Brisbane that is what I shall do 🙂 FYI, I flew to Melbourne with Japan Airlines Business Class Sky Suite and their In-flight service is second to none.

Because this Business Class ticket Brisbane to Singapore was offered with LESS KrisFlyer Miles compared to normal Saver Option for Business Class and close to the miles required to redeem an Economy Class on Saver Option, I was willing to compromise and sleep senget, haha.
Before I proceed to my Live Travel Report on Business Class, click here to read about my silverKris Business Class Lounge at Brisbane Airport. i was surprised that the Singapore Airlines Business Class Lounge in Brisbane did not offer any cognac but only cheap spirits that do not have any anti-oxidants!
Singapore Airlines NEW A350-900 For Medium Haul
When I booked the ticket, there were no bulk head seats available. However, when I was checking in, I asked if I could get a bulk head seat and the girl said YES! So, my seat number was 11A (that’s the first seat as there are no numbers 1 to 10) and I was pretty happy as I do not need to sleep senget, hahaha.
However, when I entered the plane, to my surprise, all the Business Class flat bed allowed the passengers to sleep straight! It was a new design! And I learned something new, the stewardess told me that the old design seats where we need to sleep senget is called “diamond seats” (nice name but stupid design).

Non-Bulk Head Window and Center Row Seats
The NEW A350-900 For Medium Haul Comes With Armrest
Another stupid thing about Singapore Airlines Business Class Diamond Seats is that one side does not have armrest! So, I was very happy that this new A350 comes with armrest on both side of the seat!

There Is Still A Difference Between Bulk Head Versus Standard Business Class Seats On SIA NEW A350-900 For Medium Haul Flights
The bulk head seat is more spacious in terms of leg room and the “hole” to insert out feet is also larger. Please refer to photos below:

I have actually ordered Salmon prior to my flight but from the menu they had Snapper. So i asked the stewardess which she would recommend. Well, she actually brought both the snapper and salmon to show me! I decided to go with the snapper.
I forgot to take photos of the dessert, hahaha.
I was very satisfied with Singapore Business Class Cabin Crew as all of them were super friendly and helpful and catered to all my needs. And they seem to know all the Business Class passengers’ names. The moment I entered the plane, they started addressing me by my surname and throughout the entire flight too.
Before I started drafting this report, I went googling and found out that the NEW Airbus A350 started with flights to and from Adelaide last year (2018) and Brisbane this year. Below is part of Singapore Airlines Press Released on 6th Septmber 2018:
Well, anyway Bro & Sis, my advise to you is that you should always opt for Bulk Head Seats. And somehow I was blessed once again to fly for FREE with Singapore Airlines out from Brisbane on their NEW A350-900 and GOD gave me a bulk head seat when I was Checking In which I could not choose when I first booked the flight 🙂
