Just FYI, SQ267 returns as SQ258... and operates until 31 July.

I think you've got it right. I also think there was a plan to re-instate one 772 in May (the one alluded to in the May presentation slide). That plan got cancelled -- not necessary with the deliveries of 9V-SCK, -SHF, and SHG -- and now, SHH.

The presentation slide just didn't get corrected before release. The planned withdrawals are now back on schedule (e.g. 9V-STV).

Strangely, 9V-SQM is the next 772 that has stopped flying (since 8 June)
SQM is the most recently refurbished 772...done end 2017.
Regular maintenance?

Last Tuesday while landing on 20R i saw a 772 which was stripped of titles (and 2 other 772s parked facing each other). I assume this 772 is SQJ.



Yesterday while landing on 20C, i clearly saw a 777 in the hanger with its titles removed too. I couldn't tell which type of 777 it was, unfortunately.



Any thoughts?

The all-white 772 should be the former 9V-SQK.

SQJ identified correctly, SQK should be the all white one

the one in the hanger could be either SRP or SRQ... both have been out for awhile and apparently going to NokScoot.

hmm...but titles removed...i'd think if SRP/Q are going to NokScoot it should be a paint job, not titles removed?

but anyway, on the right corner looks like another 772 in the hanger still with the titles. perhaps that could be SQM. surely SQM will be one of the later ones to be retired.

What about the 77W's? I see some flights where the A359 has replaced the 77W. is there a separate thread on this?

None of the 77Ws are being withdrawn from service. If A359s are replacing them, then it just means they're being redeployed elsewhere.

Probably FY2021 or when the 777X deliveries begin.
The oldest of the 77Ws will be 15years old by then so it’s likely some will get retired

There will be a number of 77Ws that will continue to fly till at least 18 years old - just like some of its 772s as it will take another 5 years before all the new 777X be delivered and with some delays with the new engine, SQ's first 777X will likely be delivered sometime in 2022 instead of 2021.

There is a Boeing 777 painted in Rossiya colours in the area parked at cargo apron. is that an ex sq 772 going on to Rossiya?

Thank you.

SRP & SRQ are both noted on planespotters as going to XW. If there is an SQ 772 going to FV, it would have to be SQJ but there's nothing noted on planespotters about it. The Russians do seem to like buying old SQ 777s and so far the majority of ex-SQ 777s have found new homes, so it's certainly possible.
