The planes will have 36 of the airline’s new regional business class seats as part of an interesting combination for fliers.

“The introduction of our new regional cabin products on the 787-10s is part of our commitment to continuous product innovation and leadership, to enhance the premium travel experience for our customers,” said Singapore Airlines Vice President of Marketing and Planning, Tan Kai Ping to Forbes.

The Stelia Opal is laid out in a 1 – 2 – 1 configuration where each seat has direct-aisle access and reclines to a horizontal lie-flat, a welcome update of Singapore’s current recliner and angled lie-flat regional business class seats.

It also seems likely that the plane will be used on the airline’s other regional routes within Asia.

The airline will receive the first of the new planes from the aircraft manufacturer in March.
