A back of the envelope calculation: assuming a seat pitch of 32" in economy, this could mean sacrificing up to 3 rows of 9 across economy seating, yielding 18 skynest beds (6 beds in each bank of 3x3 economy seats).

I'm really curious how they will make this commercially viable. Even premium economy at a 30-50% premium to flexible economy class fares looks like a tough ask in SQ's case. What more asking the customer flying economy to pay the price of another seat and possibly more (given the example of reducing 27 economy seats to only 18 beds).

Interesting option for economy class nonetheless. Wonder how they'll differentiate the pricing for sky couch especially for solo pax.
