Hong Kong coems with 1 x 77W for SQ862/861, 1 x 77W for SQ2/1 and 1 x 773 fior SQ860/863

From tomorrow, the 773 upgauges to a 77W and the 77W on 862/861 becomes a A388. SQ2/1 stays as it is.

On the same day, SQ862 is retimed and renamed SQ856

Hope that helps.

For SIN-SGN, it seems to depend on your flight timing. I find the early Saturday morning flight to be very consistent so far with Spacebeds (and hence, the lunch flight back from SGN-SIN operated by the same bird)

Let me be more specific, I can say based on the last three weeks, on the weekend flights (I can't vouch for weekdays, I'll defer to our dear MAN Flyer on that):

For SIN-SGN J:

SQ172 - 7:50/8:55 (Saturday) = Spacebed
SQ186 - 19:50/22:45 (Sunday) = Regional J

For SGN-SIN J:

SQ171 - 17:40/18:45 (Saturday) = Spacebed
SQ185 - 19:50/22:45 (Sunday) = Regional J

are they 9V-SR*Series
9V-SV*Series
9V-SQ*Series.

It is my first ever trip to Vietnam at the end of the year and looking forward to it.

SQ175 uses the 9V-SV*Series B772.

Not sure about these so please correct me if I am wrong.

SQ uses a 2-class 772 for SQ826/7. I believe the aircraft are the 9V-SV* series, so business class is SpaceBed.

I was just informed that my F seat on the regional 772 is no more - SQ602 is now served by a 772ER, at least in Jan 2010.

From what I see on ITN, CGK is now still a mix of 773 and 772 (3 class)? :confused:

SQ910/917 (B773) = Regional F, Regional C, Y
SQ916/921 (B772) = Regional F, Regional C, Y
SQ912/919/918/915 (B772) = Regional C, Y

I've booked a flight with SQ 910 in September.
This plane will be a 777/200 with
F 12 seats 2/2/2
C 2/3/2
Y configuration

my return flight SQ919 will NOT have a F class
so I got a downgrade to C
config in C is 2/2/2

is this a newer C at the return flight equal to F?

is there a difference in sevice or amneties between C & F?

Good luck with that.

MEL can have very long waits at immigration, and getting your luggage and getting through customs is nothing short of a disgrace. Long lines, no organisation and collection of luggage amongst the lines of people trying to get out.

Many international travellers must wonder what the hell they have come to Australia for if they arrive via MEL. It is the worst airport I have experienced in the world, I am ashamed it is my home airport.

There is nothing wrong with coming through customs at Adelaide Airport. My last trip when i was working in Singapore it took me 35 mins from leaving the aircraft, lining up at the customs desk, getting my bags, getting checked by quarantine and out the door. Not bad in my opinion when it was a full flight. I actually was out the door before the crew came through and they get a priority lane. Adelaide airport is a lot better now than what it used to be.

I used them for the first time in SYD last month, and I must say if it wasn't for my bags, I would've been through customs and quarantine in less than 15mins from chocks on.

Welcome to SQTalk SingaporeDon.

Other than Bulkhead/exit rows, armrests can be raised.

If you do your booking online with SQ, the seat map indicates the which seats have fixed armrests.

Thank Goodness that SQ is finally realising that they need to have "egonomically" designed seats rather than have seats that they can "talk" about especially in Biz Class and First Class. I hear that there is a change in the so called "wide seats" in the B777 and B380's but they should have never been installed in the first instance. Looking forward to it.. I call the "wide seats" a "pay for the extra baggage seat" - while not seeming to be unkind, because in times gone past, if were were overweight, you had to pay for two seats!! Now, if you are "normal" we pay for someone who would normally have to occupy two seats.

Cashsuds
14th November 2009, 09:02 PM
I wonder if users in the Biz Class seats for the B777 and the B380's really think the seats are that good - wide, but they are a "spine cruncher", because they afford no support and when you sleep in those silly cubicles, you actually suffocate as the air flow does not allow to be circulated where your head is - in a huge well surrounded by steep walls!! I found out I was actually deprived of oxygen - bad enough as the cabins are reduced in pressure compared to normal atmosphere while flying at 10,000m..

Airbus A330-300 - Asia, Oceania

Airbus A380-800 - Asia, Europe, Oceania
Boeing 747-400 - Asia, Europe, North America

Boeing 777-200ER - Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania
Boeing 777-300 - Asia, Oceania
Boeing 777-300ER - Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania

Also can someone tell me what type of 777 was used from BNE > SIN November 2008?

Thanks

Go to the SQ website -- http://www.singaporeair.com -- and select the timetable option. It'll show you the aircraft type for each route. The only thing you won't be able to tell without more detailed dope is which specific type of 772 is utilized: generally, the SVx frames, with Spacebeds, are used on long-hauls (SIN-CPH; SIN-AMS).

A345s operate only SIN-EWR and SIN-LAX C Class nonstops; 744s operate only SQ11/12, SQ25/26, and (until end of January) SQ219/220.

http://www.flyertalk.com has, at the head of the SQ forum, a sticky that details routes with 77W and A380 aircraft.

Hello :smile:, I'm thinking of flying SQ to TPE on J on the 20th Jan. Online it shows that they use B772/200ER. As far as i know SQ's -200s have the old Regional seats whereas the -200ER has the space beds like the 744s. Obviously the space beds are more comfortable so is there any way I can find out if SQ uses the -200 or -200ER there? Last time I flew TPE - SIN they were the old ones then on the return sector they were the Space beds.

Depends on the demand of the flights, some flights are spacebed, but if more capacity is required for economy class (ie, peak travel with Chinese New Year upcoming) it would change to the old regional seats, my flight on the 16th February has been changed from a 772ER to a 2-class regional 772 - I believe it has been changed as a result of more capacity required for Chinese New Year period

Your links don't seem to be working (as they have been shortened with the ... in the middle). In any case, the easiest way to tell a classic AVOD 777 from a non-AVOD is that the AVOD seats in Y have two small pocket nettings on both sides of the PTV, whereas the non-AVOD ones don't.

Although the former had AVOD and the latter was semi-AVOD (because of the interactive games). But I'm not sure if all seats are generalised like that. Howabout 744 AVOD Y seats?

For example, SeatGuru says row 11 (bulkhead) features less foot room whereas SeatExpert tells me you have more foot room! Is row 11 a good choice?


When it comes to SQ seat recommendations - truth is, there's no better place for it than right here. In this case, Seatguru is wrong. SeatExpert is right.
Row 11 has more room than other rows on the SV birds. No really obviously bad seats though.

That's what I thought. Most comments on seats are very general and SeatGuru tend to place them at every plane.

Great - I'll give SQ a call today to BTC/request my seat.

Not unlucky according to chinese customs. In fact, in cantonese, it's rather good. The fear of the number 13, triskaidekaphobia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triskaidekaphobia), is firmly a western one.

Does anyone knows whether DEL (SQ406/405) & BOM (SQ422/421) is on a B72A or B772 this december, since its written on #4 that "B72A will be progressively introduced from Apr-Aug", but i don't recall hearing any updates on DEL & BOM having those refurbished birds :confused:

Nope, that is incorrect... 9V-SYF is on the SQ408/407 rotation for the moment. SQ830/833 only becomes a B73A from 01 July.

The B744 appears to be on the SQ237/228 flight until 30 June... the B73A takes over after that.

Hello all - I am new to SQtalk and this my first post so I hope this question has not been canvassed elsewhere.

I plan to fly PER-IST in May using a Business Saver redemption but I am not keen to fly the SIN-IST leg in the the old regional recliner seats. I checked the relevant flight (SQ490) on the Flight24.com site and it shows that the flight is operated by the same Spacebed-equipped 777-200ER aircraft that also fly SIN-AMS, SIN-ATH, SIN-FCO etc (ie the SV series). This is also shown on the Wikipedia SIA fleet page.

I rang Singapore Airlines bookings to confirm this but was told that the flight offered J recliner seats in a 2-3-2 configuration. The agent also said that F seats were available so I asked him to try to make an F booking and he seemed a bit put out when he found that no seats were showing on his system.

I have always assumed that 777-200ER aircraft were assigned to this route when direct SIN-IST flight were introduced last year but now I don't know.

Can anyone confirm the current status of this?

9V-JKL - thank you so much for providing this guide. It actually was my starting point for this question re SQ490, however I began to wonder when I dicovered that there is no F class on this flight and I also wasn't sure that a
B772 had the range to fly SIN-IST non stop. As a result I looked at the record on Flight24.com of aircraft that have recently operated this route
(http://data.flight24.com/flights/sq490/) and it suggests that the aircraft have all been the SV series (ie B772ER) that also operate to other European destinations (eg http://data.flight24.com/airplanes/9v-svj/). In addition I was also able to find recent photos of some these aircraft on Airliners.net that showed them in Istanbul as well as Rome, Copenhagen and Amsterdam etc (eg http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?regsearch=9V-SVM). What does it all mean?

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I am not too excited by the prospect of a long night in a B772 and I may even consider flying via FCO or ATH in order to get a more comfortable flight.

If it's operated by SV birds - it's definitely spacebeds. And 9V-JKL is right - this is THE place on the net, bar none, if you want to know about SQ seats

Now, here's where you can help me.

Am I right in thinking that of the 6 planes in service between LHR - SIN, SQ17/18/21/22 are A380 planes?

The last flight leaving SIN to LHR is 23.30. Is this the busiest service on SQ? I would like to think that the plane might not be full on at least one of my journeys, so which is my best flight option?

Only ever flown on VA before, so it is nice to think I will be leaving the Jurassic period. :wink:

Presuming you mean SQ317/18/21/22, yes, they are A380. From my experience, the one leaving SIN at 2330 is always full. The 1130 A380 is usually a bit emptier, but I can't say your flight will be empty :)

I saw the SQ bird in IST last week (was flying TK C though) and thought it was an SV bird meaning a 772ER leading me to the conclusion that it has SpaceBeds in C and 'old' Y. IIRC Y on the 772ERs is actually the best one you can get 'space' wise as it should have 34" seat pitch versus the usual 32" on other SQ aircraft. IFE would be Avod, but the older Wiseman (3000?) version and smaller screens.

But then I wouldn't swear on it being a 772ER as the champagne was still weighing heavy on my clear vision :)

I was on SQ973 BKK-SIN last weekend and it was a 3-class 772 with regional product and F was cordoned off as expected. However, surprised me to see a 3-class bird on this route. Guess some swap or so as 3-class would normally go to CGK or MNL (for a while still) and so forth.

SQ281/282 (B72A) = New Regional C, New Y


Just looking at booking my first SQ flight to or from AKL for years and after hoping my SQ281 was going to reunite me with my old friend the 772ER and SpaceBed, I realise it's a 72A. :frown:

Why's that bad? I find the recon seats a tad more comfy than the spacebed PLUS you get a wee bit more legroom?

Well, he did say "old friend". I mean, the spacebed was among the best before the 77Ws arrived, and i still find it wonderful till today :)

Don't get me wrong, the new regional C is great too

My first ever SQ experience and I'd like your thoughts. I have canx my EY booking to be able to go on SQ!

4 sectors in J on the A380. LHR-SIN-SYD-SIN-LHR. I'm travelling with my girlfriend although I do prefer a window seat. Have reached a compromise that I'll sit in D/F seats on the LHR-SIN-LHR legs but single windows on the SIN-SYD-SIN sectors.

Seems that the front cabin is the place to be. As the flights are not for another 6 months then there is decent availability in the seat plans.

3 real questions....

* Am I right in saying that 11a/11k have no windows?
* Is it better to choose 14DF in the middle of the forward cabin or the 2 seats at the front of the back cabin (can't remember if it's 16/17 or 18DF) on the bulkhead?
* I know that you dont get an amenity bag but do they give out earplugs on request?

Appreciate all your thoughts.

Actually 11A/K does have a window. It is however unusable because the seat wing blocks it completely.

Guys,

Has SQ232 switched to the A388? My seatmap for 03/01/11 says it has. Does this mean there are now 3 A388's on the sin-syd run now? Anyone know anything more?

Cheers!

Nope not 3 A380s on SYD. From 7 Sept onwards SQ221(A8E) returns as SQ232(now SQ212), and SQ211(73A) returns as SQ212(now SQ232).

When the A8E starts operating ZRH and 1 LHR daily from 1 Oct, SQ221/232 will switch to normal A380 without full upper-deck J.

The refitted 772 (72A) is a 2 class bird. In reference to my post above, i misquoted. I confused the 72 refurb with that of the 73. Sorry for the inconvinience

No more F for 860/863 while the 72A is in rotation.

Does anyone have any experience with the set of 2-seater seats on this 72A on row 47? It is just in front of the toilets which i hate but the other 2-seaters are right at the back next to the galley which I hate even more. Seatguru is a little outdated these days. Any comments appreciated.

Am flying to IST on one of these birds for a vacation. Would have loved to get redemption biz-class for my wife and I but they don't have seats for the days I fly on Saver. :(

Hi guys,

Been lurking for a while - what a great forum! I didn't want to start a new thread so hope this is the right place to ask this question.

Looking to book a business saver award from SIN-PER next year and there is the choice between the A330 or retrofitted 777-200. From the seatmap etc I understand they both have the 'new' regional C fitted, but was wondering if there is a preference to which plane people recommend? I know it's just a short flight but my fiancι and I have never flown business before on SIA and it will be the completion of our honeymoon, so thought might as well ask in case one is preferable to the other!

Thanks a lot :occasion14:

Kyo
2nd November 2011, 09:53 PM
If they both have the new regional seat fitted, I'd go for the one that suits your schedule more/allows you more time to enjoy the lounge since it's part of your honeymoon. Congratulations! :)

Yep. How do I know this? I've got a booking on SQ226 next month. I just happened to be logged in to singaporeair today when I noticed that my seat assignment had disappeared. The seat map now shows a 2-2-2 config, with 20 seats up front, plus 18 more in a second cabin. This is one of the retrofitted planes, right?

Not happy that I booked 6 months ago when the plane was empty, and selected the best seats. That all counts for nothing now, and I've been left to peck at the crumbs - all without a word of warning from SQ.

On the plus side I suppose I do get to try the new product.

My return leg is on SQ223. This has also been switched to the same config 772. This means that SQ229, which is still a 333, arrives at PER 1hr 25 minutes before SQ223. It then departs PER as SQ230 1hr 40 minutes after SQ226. Or to put it another way - there will be a 333 parked at PER for just over 4 hours each day. A chance to do some plane spotting.

At the same time, I also noticed that SQ have changed my onward flights on SQ972/SQ975 to BKK. This is now showing as a 3 classs 772. Could this signal the long awaited return of F on this route? Ha ha. We can always dream I suppose :smile:

Yes, my 73A flight from MEL was next off to DEL so we arrived into T2. The 73A really is just new seat-covers in Y as someone else once described. About the only other advantage is that the seats were spaced out a little further so you probably get an extra inch of legroom than before. The concept that you get anything similar to the 388/77W product in Y is a myth.

Also, another edit required is the planned change for MEL. From March 25, the 744 is being replaced by a 388 (I think it will be 38E based on seat selection charts I've seen of friends travelling in May/June). However, the pairing of flights is going to revert back to the old system:
SQ227 will go back to matching up with SQ228 and will be the A380 flight.
SQ237 will therefore match up again with SQ238 and be a 73A service.

Of course if 9V-SKQ doesn't materialise in time for March 25, 744 fans may get a little more joy on old SPQ. :tongue:

This is very true! :wink:

It looks like they are giving MEL a break finally though. There hasn't been a plane type substitution for about a month now and once these changes commence with the withdrawal of the 744 and SQ228 going back to being the higher capacity aircraft held over while another arrives and departs, we should be fine.

I believe the DEL 73A flights are SQ407/8. Flight24 is showing solid allocation of 73As for over a month, except when SYE gets dragged out to help.

BKK – (B772) = Regional C, Y
SQ976/979 (A333) = New Regional C, New Y



I came down from BKK on SQ981 a couple of weeks ago and was delighted to be met by my old friends the SpaceBeds when I boarded. :thumbsup: First time in then in a couple of years.

Not sure how often that happens, as I was on 981 a few months earlier and it was old regional. The bird we came down on went to JNB next according to the boards.

I have to say the SpaceBeds on the aircraft were in absolutely immaculate condition, they literally looked brand new. I used to love flying nonstop to and from MAN (and to SGN and back god knows how many times) on those 772ER's. I think they should have a commemorative SQ772 flight when they retire. :wink:

Not sure if it is a glitch, but from Jun 2012 SQ223/SQ226 on Sat, Tue, and Thu only are showing as 777-300.

I can't get a seat map out of the web site (even for a confirmed booking - it just comes up as a blank page :rolleyes2:), but the seat maps on Amadeus suggest it might be the refurbished 73A.

It would make sense to send down a bird with a larger J cabin as biz is always chocka on these flights. Don't know if that's the reasoning behind it but.

Hmm, last week I was very pleasantly surprised after I booked a flight from SIN-FUK and then a week later back from NRT-SIN (A380). Although my booking was on pretty short notice (leaving this Saturday) I got exit row seats in Y on both flights...no idea why. On the return leg I could even choose from different exit rows lol...although on both trips the planes are pretty much full. Strange. Is it because I made the booking while logged in and they held the seats for KF members? I'm not even Silver yet and have a measley 30k miles in my account (15k elite)...:wink:

Or was I just lucky as hell?

Have been watching the data for SQ 217/8 to see if there is a preference for either A388 or A38E. So far it's hard to tell- the pattern seems to be around 5 days of one, then around 5 days of the other, then reverting.

Surely it must be hard to sell all the seats on a flight if they never know which variant will be flying it? Or would this pattern be planned well in advance? :confused:
