Boeing's running out of parking space due to too much grounded 737MAX which cannot be delivered, therefore they need to send it somewhere else for storage.

The new SQ 737Max should have been outfitted with its new lie-flat seats in Biz class.
Silkair should take this downtime for their 6 737 Maxes to be outfitted with the new biz/ey seats to save on the time when these planes will soon be in SQ colors.

Moses Lake airport.

Boeing's own facilities are full already (Plaine and Renton).

They are basically renting space to store these aircraft now.

Any news if the current 737NG are being sent in for refurbishment for the handover to SQ in July?

All are still in service except for 9V-MGI. Not sure whether it is under maintenance or not. The problem I think lie in the seats. Donít think they are ready.

The brand new 737 Max built by Boeing and in storage should have the new interiors.
But think SQ did not plan to order the new seats for Silkair's existing 6 738 Max earlier as the integration of Silkair into SQ was delayed and expected only by 2011.

In this case, are we expecting the Integration to be delayed?

Given the current circumstances, they really need the savings from combining the SQ/MI Operations. It is costly to continue to manage two different airlines, even though many of the back-end systems (such as ticket booking) has been combined.

SQ should refit the 6 737-800 Max now paked in Alice Spring first, before refitting the older 738s

I'm not sure I'd be spending any money doing anything with a 737 MAX 8 right now. Until there's 100% clarity that they will a) head back into the skies and b) passengers will agree to fly on them, refitting them is just throwing good money at a lemon.
