9V-SMA to 9V-SME, 9V-SMG, 9V-SMJ and 9V-SMM.

The rest are MTOW-275T.
Shall we make a list on which A350 has which MTOW, including the -SH* and -SG*.

Seem like the newer A350 allow SQ32/31 to fill in more seats (does not need to block certain seats)?

That was already the case when I flew SQ31 in July last year. Every seat was filled. The significant seat blocking seemed to be for the beginning of the flight operations when they only had the first handful of A350s.

It seem to be seasonal

Just search n read through some older thread n it was mention that the head wins are much stronger during winter.

A change in ULR flights coming: https://mainlymiles.com/2019/11/17/s...hicago-coming/

LAX will reduce to just one daily ULR leaving only SQ38/37
SFO’s SQ34/33 to go 3-class Longhaul A350

What might happen next?

Well, I guess it was just a matter of time.

Throwing it really out there, but perhaps ORD 3 weekly and IAH 3 weekly?

Possibly to allow multiple A380s to go in for their refit?

My wild guess...

Aside from the ULR cuts, some other interesting changes spotted for NW20/21 season from approximately 25OCT20:
  • SIN-MEL-WLG (A359) ends
  • MEL route drops to 28 x weekly (4 x daily) all-B77W operation
  • DPS goes 3 x daily B787, 1 x daily A333 (currently 2 of each type)
  • MLE changes back to A333 from B787

I'm sure there's more but that's what I spotted for now.

Presumably the cancelation of SIN-MEL-WLG is where they're getting the additional 3 class plane for SQ33/34.

Guess they have not decide on the plane type for WLG? So they just never put in the schedule yet? Might be the regional A350?

Still A350 long haul version with PE.
I take this back:

So where's the plane for SQ33/34 coming from? Are we to expect more long haul A350s?

They might be able to free up some 3-class A350s from other shorter flights as new regional aircraft come in. So far only one of the LH aircraft loses some flying in W20 as far as I can see - SQ962/963 CGK changes from 359 to 77W.

That said there are around 11 new A350s coming in 2020, with no variant confirmed yet. Some could easily be 3-class long haul versions.

Essentially there will be 2 extra A350s that is not required and unless SQ announces a new longhaul destination to the US, these 2 A350s will be not effectively used but up till now there is no announcement of any new US destination. SQ may then reconfigure back one or two of these ULRs to the standard 3 class configuration.
