SVG has flown to FCO on 10, 17 & 24 March, 11 & 28 April, and 2 May.

Between these two planes, an incredible number of flights to Rome have been covered! This suggests to me as though both planes could be carrying the 2006 Y product and they are specifically targeting FCO to receive it.

happyflyer's post on instagram is displaying to me as dated 2 May. If that is indeed the actual day of departure, SQ366 was flown on that day by 9V-SVG and that photo is definitely of a recently refitted 772ER.

Could it be that SVG was fitted out some time last year and none of us noticed?

You can't both be right or both be wrong, so where do we go from here?

Oh yea, sorry guys! The instagram account is not mine and I just came across it online some days ago.

I just took a look at the account again and from other posts, it does appear that the date of departure should be 30/Apr instead so indeed it's 9V-SVB. Sorry for the confusion, especially being my first post here.

However, on the other hand, I have a question (a bit OT though) as well:

Why does the size of main dish vary actually?

No worries! I was actually in J so the only give-away would have been the IFE. So indeed I was also doubting myself as I didn't take a walk to Y.

Oh well now let's just all hope for good news for SVC!

SYI was the first one of the old 777s to be done

It's now been on the ground for a full month. Very unlikely that it is leaving the fleet as we've just had a fairly good indication in the annual media release that the three old purple cabins are the only 772s to go between now and the end of March 2018, although I guess there's the slimmest of possibilities they could keep SVF and remove SVC.

A cabin refit along the lines of SVB is one possible assumption. The other is just heavy maintenance work, which given its age is not unusual. Or both.

SVL hasn't been active for three days according to FR24, is it just regular maintenance?

Probably. Three days doesn't tell us much.
SWI, SNA & SVC are all still on the ground so there's really no chance they'll be doing anything major to a 777 like a cabin refit until at least one of them returns to service.

SWI's due to return back to service on Friday following an air-test. Anyone knows the status about SVC given that SQ has recently refitted SVB? Thanks!
