The schedule for SQ236 was just updated on FR24. As of 5 Jan SQ236 has been upgraded to a A359 from a B772. This is a couple of weeks earilier then initially planned, which is great outcome for me, as I fly out on the 8th. My sons will be pleased.

Does this mean all the BNE flights are now A350?

SQ266/265 remains B772
SQ236/255 is a A359
SQ246/245 is a A359
SQ235/256 is a A359

3 out 4 services have been upgraded. I got lucky as the SQ236/255 was not originally slated for the upgraded until 16 January however is commencing on 5 January just in time for my trip on the 8th.

It comes too late for me. My SQ236 experience was dominated by sitting on an old broken seat.

The difference when i got into an A350 for my next flight sector was amazing. The windows are so large in comparison and the lighting so much more pleasant. When it taxis around Changi at night with the cabin lights dimmed, the visual experience is so engaging, instead of peering out one tiny window.

It flew to other locations first but since then is captive to BNE. It's unlikely to be due to flight timing as SQ236 arrives in SIN early enough to be assigned to any of the A350 evening flights. It's quite curious.

Does anyone have any idea/inclination when will the A350 ULR be delivered to SQ? Q3 2018? Q4 2018? or better still which month?... or would it be pushed to 2019?

According to the unofficial production website, bird LN#220 (the 2nd ULR to be built) is scheduled for delivery in Aug; the 1st built bird LN#216 is scheduled for Oct delivery. All 7 will be delivered this year.

Oh? The first build will be delivered later than the second? Why so?
