Singapore Airline Business Class

I flew Singapore Airline Business class from Singapore to Auckland on 19th June, SQ 285 Boeing 777-300 ER. The flight duration was 9 Hours 40 Minutes. My seat number was 22A. It was the new re-design cabin, and it looked amazing. The seat themselves are leather, soft and super large. The seating configuration is in 1-2-1 to give all passenger aisle access. The seating arrangement gave great flexibility in positioning myself comfortably. It felt like the seat can fit 2 people. The TV screens are so big comparing it to the economy class. The personal seat light has a number of different setting and brightness depending on whether you are reading, eating or watching TV. The seat folds down to create a very large flat bed. I was really surprised. The flat bed seem to be above average height, so this would be loved by all. The food service was just a class apart. It felt like sitting in a five start restaurant and dining. I had selected low calories meal. So every served was just so healthy and yummy as well. 

The only thing I didn't like was the seat was not near the window enough. I love to look down from the plane but in this case I had to really move myself to do that. Anyways with all this comfort, my fear of flying has reduced. I don't know if it was the distraction or what but even during 1 hour of turbulence, I kept my calm and was watching Games of Throne.
