9V-SMJ is airborne again after being AOG in SFO for a few days.

En-route SFO-SIN as SQ9031, with STA: 2335 (ETA: 2230) tonight (26APR17).

Twice in a week is a really bad look.

Having been on an SQ31 in between the two cancelled flights, they certainly aren't running them half empty. Some seats are not sold to reduce weight but I think most of the others on my flight were occupied.

WiFi on that aircraft is down for many weeks and SQ seems to not be able to fix the issue.
Just off SMH - they are clearly not in a rush to fix WiFi. What's worse, the crew had no idea about it not working, they checked and rechecked even tried their hand phones so clearly they are not notified about it.

And another A350 went tech again on SQ 377 MXP-SIN. 9V-SMB.

I feel like this is not the full extent of A350s breaking down, as we've noted so far only problems with flying planes back to SIN. If these issues developed before a flight out of SIN, they could replace it with another plane and we would be none the wiser.

SQ is an airline with quite a reputation for reliability and punctuality, so I suspect there may be a few terse phone calls between Singapore and Toulouse right now.

This was related on an engine problem. So probably a terse conversation with RR?
