Due to take wing in 2018 with non-stop flights from Singapore to Los Angeles and New York, the long-legged variant of the A359-900 – dubbed the A350-900ULR – will carry around 170 seats compared to just over 250 passengers in the standard A350-900.

The tip-to-tail mix of travel classes is expected to skew towards premium cabins such as business and first class so that passengers can enjoy maximum comfort on the long (19h.) non-stop flights.

Singapore Airlines revealed "the A350-900ULR aircraft will be fitted with all-new cabin products that are currently under development, and are scheduled to be delivered in 2018."

For Australian Business Traveller, this news increases the odds that Singapore Airlines' A350ULR will sport a small first-class cabin for added long-haul luxe, with the bulk of the jetliner given over to business class and possibly a compact premium economy cabin.

Based on the article “Singapore Airlines: 'all-new' business class on long-range A350” published in Australian Business Traveller.
