Presumably they have an idea of bookings, if there aren't any F booking to HKG no harm swapping the plane.

Either way, it's still better than the regional lottery CX has.

9V-SQL was out on air-test as SQ8877 today in basic SQ livery without titles or logo.

Looks like 9V-SVM is back in service, doing SQ972 and SQ9975 (?) according to FR24 on Dec 1.

So imagine if you book suite n then downgrade to normal first class. Then on day of travel, tell you plane have no first class. Pls wait another 4 hours for SQ866. Not many paxes would like it.
To me that's the biggest irony in this - the ones paying the most are the ones most affected by the swap. Those in Y get a product that's almost comparable, those in F either downgrade or suffer a time penalty... not so good huh

I knew someone who encountered such an equipment swap, called the call centre... "Sir, you're now in J, don't worry it's the highest class available on the aircraft!"

After not using it for a few days they put it on a BKK flight (SQ972) and then it subsequently broke down in BKK. They ended up having to send SVB down there empty to cover the scheduled return flight, delayed by 6 hours.

SVM has then returned as SQ9975- and very interestingly- it flew exactly 6 minutes behind that day's SQ975, which was performed by SVC.

Sold or headed for scrap? So far they havenít sold any SQx aside from SQH and attempting to sell SQJ now...the rest have all been scrapped. But a 3hr air test does suggest it may be off to somewhere else?

As I understand it, another one for Boeing Aircraft Holding Company (like 9V-SVN preceding). Boeing also took 9V-SRO in October, and several previous ex-SQ Triple Sevens.
