Singapore Airlines will be investing nearly SGD$95 million to refit ten Boeing 777- 200ER aircraft with new long-haul cabin products to provide customers with additional space and comfort. Service between Singapore and Mumbai SQ 422/ 421  will start on March 31, 2013. 
The cabin upgrade program will provide greater product consistency across the airline’s long-haul fleet, with Business Class seats that convert into full-flat beds and larger in-flight entertainment screen sizes for both Business Class and Economy Class.
The first refitted B777-200ER will operate between Singapore and Amsterdam from 13 Jan 2013. Upgraded B777-200ERs will be deployed to more destinations in Europe and to points in India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand as additional aircraft are refitted.
In Business Class, the seat reclines up to 125 degrees and unfolds into a 76-inch full-flat bed. In Economy Class, personal LCD monitors will be upgraded to 9 inches from 6.5  inches. Seat covers, designed by Givenchy, will also feature soothing colours as well as richer and softer fabrics, similar to those found on SIAs A380s and B777-300ERs.
