2006Y seats with the 2013 fabrics hahaha
A month. Probably the usual maintenance, just wondering if they値l fit in the seats too and keep these aircraft a few more years.

Haha yeah I understand. I hope yes unless that is next to leave the fleet very soon.

Yes indeed.

I was quite surprise when I boarded SQ968 last Friday.

It was quite a pleasant surprise as I saw that the aircraft had a brand new seat. It was SRM indeed.
The seat is similar to A330 but with the Color on what you see in A350 or B787.


I do not mind to fly 772 if the seat is like this.

It would seems that a few of the older 772s and 773s will be flying till they reah 19 years old.

SRM has already been flying with that cabin for almost 2 years.

I think those aircraft are pretty perfect for the flights they池e doing now so yes I also think they will remain for awhile until some reshuffling of flights (especially Bkk and HKG) gets done and they値l switch to the bigger 78J or regional 350s in future.

SRM is doing PEK to SIN now as SQ805. Its a 15 year old aircraft and would likely remain a few more years in service.

I guess it has been used for more longer flight until very recently. I flew on 4 SQ B772 this year and this is the only 772 with new cabin in eco.

Yep, SRL is out of the fleet.

The next three departures we are awaiting are SVJ, SVM & SVN. The SV series planes are spending a lot of time on the ground at present as they only have four flights to cover across 6 aircraft and IST isn't even daily. Other recent ad hoc activity for them has been covering for SQ/SR-series 772s and a handful of TR flights to MEL but they're not even getting any MNL or BKK assignments.

Now that another 787 is here and SQL has returned to service after a break, as well as IST reducing from 5 to 4 days for the NW schedule, that could mean we see another go soon.

How about SRO, SQM and SQN? Are these being refurbished?
