singapore airlines' new seats

Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new seats arrangements for long-haul flights between Singapore and some European cities (initially for flights to Paris and Switzerland and progressively to other destinations).
This is the business class seat. It's huge, at least 30 inches wide (the first-class seat is even wider at 35 inches)! And every seat comes with its own 15.4-inch widescreen LCD. Unfortunately, the company says that this upgrade will probably come at a cost, about 10 to 20% more. For the rest of us who have to travel coach most of the times, at least we can resort to Wired's tips on "how to capture the armrest".

Hi mz, hi Dany, thanks for the comments.
Dany, teve uma época que eles falaram que iam instalar DirecTV nos aviões, mas até agora nada. Também tinha wi-fi (se bem que era um serviço pago, proporcionado pela Boeing), mas vai ser descontinuado por "falta de demanda". Ótimo saber que tem gostado dos posts. Manda um abraço para o Paulo.
