That's the old livery (OH-LQC). I was waiting at Changi Beach for its delayed arrival. Few minutes prior to landing, the runway was changed ... therefore didn't even caught a glimpse of it

No idea about livery or registrations but I did read that AY have got a couple of ex-AF 343's on lease that are supposed to be poor in J and these may be earmarked for the SIN run.

It would surprise me to put such on aircraft on a new route to Changi but if it's true I'll give them the wide berth and stick to the 330's to and from BKK.

This issue has been raised a couple of times but it is not true. The A340's will be rotated throughout the network so SIN should see it no more than 2 times a week maximum.

So one has only the 2/7 chance of being TG'ed.

I didn't read MAN Flyer's post as implying that the leased a/c would be "exclusively" earmarked for SIN. Twice a week - and not knowing which two days - is bad enough.

That is one nice looking design... I do like simple and effective airplane liveries.

Shame AY don't/can't send their A330's to SIN as having done BKK-HEL on their new J again at the weekend I have to say I do enjoy flying with them. The crews are great and HEL is a great place to transit to/from non Schengen to long haul as the lounge and the gates used for these flights are all together.

I had a single A seat this time instead of the previous L seat and they are great for one person travelling alone with all the personal space you get, although the gap for your feet where the seat goes flat could be bigger.

The A330s don't have the range to do HEL-SIN !
