SKT is currently due to operate SQ424 BOM this evening (06/01).
SQ424 was operated by 9V-SKW. SKT is expected to operate SQ638 tonight.

Melbourne flights SQ217/218, reverting from A380 to 77W on 1st Feb 2020, now have seasonal A380 operation scheduled on:
  • 17 Feb 20 - 8 Mar 20
  • 1 Jun 20 - 30 Jun 20

A Version 2 aircraft is planned for both periods, unlike the Version 1 currently operating.

actually HKG dont need the A380 as its morning flights to HKG as it is not full on most of the time epecially weekdays when I took this A380 flight to HKG. Plus the fact that the A380 require at least a almost 2 hour turnaround time in HKG is not too efficent use of aircraft and crew.

On the refurbishment of the older A380s to ver 3, think SQ may not reconfigure the 4 leased A380s and may even return the planes back earlier as they would be 12 years or more in another 2 years time.

Default Accelerating refits?

Could we be seeing an accelerated refit pace as a result of the recent capacity adjustments?

Perhaps a bit early to tell, but: SKH arrived from FRA 6/2 and SKP arrived from SYD 8/2. Rather ambitious to have 3 concurrent refits but would be an indication of the entire fleet being here to stay if they are going ahead with SKH, one of the oldest frames in the fleet right now.

It's possible, there's a JV that needs work:

Although presumably if they do this it probably means they want to fly the wings off the A380s, which may be an issue if oil prices shoot up again and better fuel efficiency is needed.

Doubt they can have 3 refits at a time even given this temporary capacity as a refit seems to take more than 7 months to complete, which before then, things will be back to normal as before the virus outbreak. Normal A380 operation usually see only 17 of the 19 planes in service and when one more goes AOG, the A380s schedule will result in many delays.
Not sure if SQ will do a refit for the 4 oldest A380 which likely have some wing issues.
