Singapore Airlines will progressively roll out a S$95 million ($77.8 million) cabin upgrade on ten Boeing 777-200ERs by April 2014.

The upgraded aircraft will feature the same business class seats on its Airbus A380 and 777-300ER fleets, which feature a 76in (193cm) leather seat that converts to a full-flat bed and 15.4in LCD monitors in a four-abreast configuration.

In economy class, the 777s will feature an upgraded entertainment system with 9.5in LCD monitors and new seat covers.

The first upgraded aircraft will enter service on the Singapore-Amsterdam route from 13 January 2013. Subsequently, these aircraft will gradually be used on routes to Europe, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand by the end of the 2013/14 fiscal year.

Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows that SIA operates a fleet of 32 777-200ERs.
