STY arrived almost at the same time as STW in Sep '13 so that would make sense for them both to be leaving at the same time I guess. The reinstated STU is still in service, however, so there's another variable to take into account.

9V-STV is currently in the air circling to the east of Singapore as SQ8893. Looks like a test flight.

STC, STQ & STU are all still very much in service. These three, along with STZ, are the ones to watch for the next withdrawal. STC just keeps surviving- do people in operations just enjoy saying Tango Charlie too much to let it go?

Former 9V-STV (now registered A4O-DZ) was ferried to Muscat yesterday (31AUG19) to join Oman Air's fleet.

Was on the way to a meeting last week and saw 9V-STW in all white except for the reg, waiting to cross over from ST Aerospace to Paya Lebar Airbase. Not sure where its heading to next.

In that list 9V-SSA is also available for sale (MSN1485)

2 older ex-SQ A330 also listed (9V-STP n 9V-STS)

STV is already with Oman Air. I think you mean STR.
Also, that website states that the availability date for SSA is 01/01/20 and 25/07/20 for SSC.

Yes, missed out on SSA. Amended my original post. Thanks for the correction.

I didn't list STP and STS as they left SQ fleet much earlier to TransAsia, later to Hong Kong Airlines. STS was not taken up after fully repainted in their livery. Sat in storage since Dec 2016, although it flew around the world for long term storage.

Yes, I mean STR currently in storage. Was looking for STV photo after arrival at MCT but couldn't find any. Thanks for the correction.

Recall Langdon Asset Management had/has STU, STV, STY, and STZ brokered for sale or lease as well. (your post #184, preceding). STV placed; others not yet.

We may see some A333 withdrawals come 1st October, as three more rotations shift to A359s or 78Xs -- besides the three that shifted 1 September. Doesn't seem like 13 frames will be required....
