Hi all,

Does anyone know what the load factors have been on SIA19/20. What's the current load figures for the 19th Oct on the LAX-SIN leg.

What kind of load factors do they need to break even, do they carry much cargo on these routes.

Regards
Av8er.

Can't help you with the pax loads, but I've heard that they're now taking on freight, which should really help the economics of the particular route.

Thanks for the reply.

Using my company's flight planning system I have been running some route and flight planning scenarios on the LAX-SIN-LAX legs. I used the A340-500 and B777-330ER. The Boeing has a problem even carrying 20,000lb payload on the eastbound leg.

I'll be on the SQ flight later this month, hope to get some feedback from the crew on that days flight. Things such as payload, planned TOT fuel, zfw, take off weight etc. If I get it, I'll do a trip report.

No s**t, The 773ER was never intended to operate this route, its range barely meets the still air distance. The 772LR is the plane you wanna be analysing.

and B777-330ER

...well, for one thing, no such model designation

...in the event you were comparing the 773ER; your comparison was anecdotal at best (there's a shock) seeing as it's a B-market aircraft.

It was a typo. I was using the 300ER. I know the B773er was not designed for such markets. My flight plans were based on historical and zero wind conditions. These test flight plans where done just for fun, that's all. I will use the 772LR, once the performance data for this A/C is available in our flight planning system.

Both flights were completely full when I took it in August. I did notice SIA held 1 seat in business and 1 seat in coach, probably for last minute customers.
