I'm not convinced that we'll see any further refits of old 777s. It was never much of a program when it was happening and we haven't seen one done for ages. Comparing the number that were done and the number of original 77Ws, I don't think there's been an issue with having to wait for cabin contents.

I'm not convinced either. It was somewhere in this thread that I read that refits were only done when the 777s were undergoing heavy maintenance and that there wasn't any specific aircraft that were supposed to get them.

By the way, with 17 A330s in the fleet remaining (excluding STO) and 16 772/77E/773s remaining (excluding SRP), which fleet do you guys think will leave first?

The A330s, unless they find a way to deal with the F demand that the 773s meet.

I think all the very small screens disappeared along with the purple/blue cabins.

I was on SRO recently. It is WAY better than the A333

It seems as though BOTH SRO & SRP are leaving? Not just SRP. They’ve both stopped flying.

SRQ and SRO have stopped flying for 4 days and 9 days now respectively. Hopefully at least one of them are on the way out.

We definitely know that some 772 regional routes are being taken over by the newly arriving A350s at the moment so there should be capacity to lose a couple.

Seems quite drastic for them to remove 3 aircraft at one go...have they done that before? Normally it’s staggered.
Goodbye my favourite SRx 772s 😢
SRQ is my most flown in aircraft.

If they're going to NokScoot, it might be more cost effective to Scoot-ify all planes in one go.

As of 31 March 2019, 7 x777-200 n 5 x 777-200ER in fleet
SQ said they reinstated 1x777-200 due to grounding issues n 7 x777-200 will be out by March 2020, left only 1. So Guess one of them is suppose to out in April was put back in service.
