Deliberies will continue as usual as at this time its too late to delay any delivery as the planes parts would have already been manufactured and some of the aircrafts have already be on the assembly line. Airbus maybe able to stored the completed aircrafts for a short period of time provided it have space.

9V-SHP and 9V-SHQ are in the Final Assembly Line (FAL) while 9V-SHR has had her parts built but not in the FAL yet. Some of the remaining aircraft will have had some of their parts built. So if you are talking about temporary storageby by Airbus, it would be the first 3. I am not sure what can be done about the rest.

Seems like the A350s are coming in pretty fast.
With the 777s it took 12 years to deliver the order of SQA-SWT. Running thru the 777-200s itself took 7 years from 1997-2004. That allowed the 777-200s to be retired and replaced gradually from 2010-2020.

But with the A350s (across all variants) being delivered within a narrow 5-6years...when the time comes for fleet renewal in future; I wonder how they will stagger it. Inevitably some will stay in the fleet much longer than the others.
(The 777-200s lifespan was roughly 13-17yrs)

You probably meant SWA-SWT unless you were referring to just their first 777-200

9V-SMY is operating SQ38 to LAX tonight. I think this the first time SIA has used a non-ULR A350 on the route?

The same 3-class A350 variant is also scheduled to fly the next four SQ38/37 flights (on 3/4, 5/4, 8/4 and 10/4, with return flight the following calendar day) before the remainder of the three times weekly flights on this route in April revert back to the A350 ULR.

Tonight's SQ38 to LAX is super empty with only 3 pax in Y.
I believe back in November 19th, 2018 when 9V-SGB (A359ULR) broke down in SIN prior to operating SQ38/37, 9V-SMS (non-ULR A359) was used as the replacement aircraft.

Thinking that the LAX flights may be to facilitate repatriation from US to Singapore, I had a look on expert flyer for SQ37 LAX-SIN (2 Apr) operated by 3-class A350. No pax in business. Total pax in premium economy and economy are about 20+ pax. Load seems a bit light if that’s the case.

Is it due to the cargo hold ? The ULR front cargo hold cannot be used right without some modifications?

Airbus announced a reduction of A350 production from 9.5/month to 6/month. Wonder how that impacts SQ

This has to be driven by deferred deliveries, by airlines possibly including SQ.

SIA Group has set aside S$3.3 billion ($2.3 billion) of the S$8.8 billion it plans to raise, from issuing equity and mandatory convertible bonds, for aircraft purchases and aircraft related payments.

“The rationale for these [aircraft] purchases remains valid even under the present scenario given that it would enable SIA to proceed with its adoption of new-generation aircraft, both as replacement for existing fleet and for growth, as these new generation aircraft will not only provide an enhanced travel experience to our customers but also, provide better operating efficiency and lower emissions,” the group said in response to questions from the Securities Investors’ Association (Singapore) (SIAS), as disclosed to the Singapore Exchange.

Cirium fleets data shows that the group expects to receive 18 aircraft for the rest of 2020, and another seven in the first quarter of 2021. These comprise seven Airbus A320neo family aircraft and five A350s, nine Boeing 787s, along with four 737 Max 8 jets, which have yet to be re-certified following a global grounding in March 2019.

SIA says: “We believe that the proceeds of S$8.8 billion from the rights issue will allow us to meet our liquidity and operational requirements, including operating cash flow needs, capital expenditure requirements and fixed obligations, for a good part of financial year 2020/2021.”
It would seem Singapore Airlines will still be taking delivery of their new aircraft planned for this financial year, at least the widebodies.

Out of service will be 6 B772ER (perhaps the 5 B773 and 9 A333 as well if current situation persist)= 20 aircraft
New aircraft 5 A359 and 9 B78J= 14 aircraft

This means that SQ is deferring around half of its A350 deliveries this year. I believe they were scheduled to take around 10-12 frames in the upcoming FY.

They are contracted to buy them. Big $$$ to get out of it.
