9V-MGI is set to be the first 738 to be transferred to Scoot. EIS estimated at May 2019.

Looks like this isn't going through while the Max remain grounded:

They have to find some A320s urgently if the planned route changes were to go ahead.

I think TR still have some spare capacity so the situation won't be too critical for now. TR also getting A320neo I believe? Any TR's A320 planes to be returned by Indigo? Maybe some organic expansion plans maybe delayed due to this. But it maybe not a bad thing after all, otherwise excess capacity added may put downward pressure on yields and load factor. Scoot may not want to go through what Tiger experienced years ago with the rapid capacity increase brought about due to over ordering of aircrafts.

Based on Airbus order list, they have a balance of 39 A320Neos on order. it was a strange decision initially to transfer the B737s to TR.


Do we know what caused SQ to change their mind on transferring B737 to scoot? It is not a simple case of B737 MAX grounding as it only has a short term impact.

Seems like this shortage is just a matter of the 737 Max groundings, so I guess the NGs will still be going over, but later.

And I seem to recall Scoot delaying quite a few of the NEO deliveries? They were ordered by Tiger before the merger, anyway.

Based on the earlier report, they are re-training their newly hired B737 pilots for A320s.

Seems like SQ will operate the 737s and TR A320s

Scoot will operate the 737-800 NGs. The transfer of aircrafts have been delayed due to the Max groundings. They are also scheduled for a cabin refit somewhere in June/July period. MGA should be the first candidate.

SQ was supposed to receive all of SLK's Max 8. But that has been put on hold too.

MBG was supposed to be delivered in late March, but was affected by the ban.

Thanks for the info Scooter. I was told that the first retrofit from SLK to SQ, will operate only in Mid-2020.

Would you know when were SQ scheduled to receive the first Max 8 for SQ, direct from Boeing and whether the grounding will allow us for the retrofit to take place in Boeing before delivery

It's fair to assume that Boeing will only start fitting to SQ specifications in 2020 as well, since they cited product manufacturing lead times as a factor.

From this report: https://links.sgx.com/FileOpen/News%...&FileID=559975

Due to the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet, SilkAir will no longer transfer the Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to Scoot in FY2019/20. As a result, Scoot will be suspending services to four destinations with weak demand – Lucknow, Kalibo, Quanzhou and Male - in the coming months.

It was reported that scoot is going to lease 10-12 A320 in the next 1-2 years.

Interesting. Will they be short term leases, or a temporary takeover of the MI A320s that are supposed to meet their maker?

This Flightglobal article doesn't say: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...unding-458258/

MI A320s are not really that old and would be sold or leased out but not to the desert or be parted out.

This is the transcript of the analyst presentation last week.

https://links.sgx.com/FileOpen/Trans...&FileID=560281

The 2 main points that were not in any of the slides are:

1) TR will lease in 10-12 A320s in the next 1-2 years.

2) MI/SQ may consider installing lie-flat business class seats in the 737NGs if the 737MAXs remain grounded for too long.

It almost feels as if they are trying to get out of their 737MAX orders, and keep a combo of 737NG and MAX in the rebranded MI/SQ subfleet.

TR will remain all A320 for the narrowbody fleet.
