Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter): A friend is travelling SQ LHR-SIN-MEL in Feb and is very keen to see how busy/empty the flight is
I recently did a return trip LHR to SIN on SQ 321/322. Both legs on the A388. On both legs the Y cabin had hardly a spare seat at all - so expect it to be full.
SQ322 on the day we traveled home had a small Y section upstairs but they only had singles left by the time we checked in so had to sit downstairs in the main cabin. - but something to watch out for when reserving your seat as I imagine a small upper deck section would be quite pleasant.

Singapore Airlines averages about 80% load factor. While February is high season to Australia, it is low season to Europe. Economy load factors are closer to 70% that time of year, so you might get lucky. However it varies quite a bit between flight to flight, so you could end up 60% full or 100% full on the LHR leg. I'd expect closer to 100% on the MEL leg.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
