Like i said it is a rumour, so anything can happen. It might not be true.

However with the 30 odd (38 is it?) 787-10 on order that is a similar number of regional aircraft they have in service now. Also remember they are switching regional aircraft for long haul on some routes such as BNE. That increases the requirement for long haul configured aircraft and decreases the number needed for regional.

When you consider the amount of 787-10 ordered combined with regional A350's that seems an awful lot.

With the recent expansion of long haul routes, confirmed new URL routes, possible new destinations and sending long haul aircraft to previously regional destinations the numbers make more sense.

Over how long of a period are the A350's expected to arrive? The 777X are not due for a long time so maybe the A350's will start to replace the 77W? What will replace the A380s? Maybe that is what the 777X are intended for?

9V-SMR (SQ#18) is undergoing cabin fitting and could roll out later this month. Delivery is most likely in September.

9V-SMS (SQ#19) is currently undergoing final assembly while parts for 9V-SMT (SQ#20) are currently arriving in Toulouse.

If speculation is correct, these are the last of the 1st tranche of long range A350s for SQ. The Regional A350s will start with #21?

Thanks for the information. It sounds like the A359 delivery rate is only once a month compared to the beginning.

There's also the possibility SQ may delegate some of the aircraft on order to Scoot. IIRC, Vistara also intends to introduce wide body ops in the coming years.

9V-SMQ is performing her 3rd Test Flight in 4 days. If the test flights continue at this pace, she could be delivered around the same time as SMP at the end of July.

9V-SMP has landed at Changi bringing the SQ A350 fleet to 16.

9V-SMQ should be performing her CAF next week. If all goes well, she will be delivered next weekend.

Yup, but interestingly fr24 hasn't updated the database with SMP. Hopefully that will be soon.
