According to the unofficial B787 Blog, the first SQ B787-10 (ZC003, line number: 622) will be registered as 9V-SCB. I guess that we can only confirm this when she emerges from the Paint Hanger.

Singapore Airlines Cargo uses 9V-SF* series.

9V-SCA (former 9V-SPA) and 9V-SCB (former 9V-SPE) were BCFs and have been retired from SIA Cargo's fleet a few years ago.

I wonder what they don't like about SCA? Goes in the same vein as SWC and SKO.

As discussed in another thread, Vistara might get some of the old 772s to begin long haul operations, which does answer the question of why they are bothering to reupholster and improve IFE in such old planes with 787s on the way.

I suspect ZC002 might wear 9V-SCA but I could be wrong. That has an Aug '18 delivery date. ZC001 is suppose to be delivered in Oct '18

Also supports my belief that we won't see any A350s. All those 787 are for regional and the additional orders to "replace" the A350s that had be designated for the regional config.

What's wrong with CB? And we never know what reg they may use for the 789, but I'm guessing it might be SC* or maybe something like the previous gen A343 celestars that had SJ* but let's wait and see.

Can we go back to the 787s, instead of discussing female anatomy?

Sure!! Sorry, I don't know or understand why that can of worms even opened up to begin with. I prefer talking about the context of the thread rather than with that. My bad everyone.
