Yes, thank you for those sarcastic reactions / comments.
As to Manchester Ringway - Singapore Changi services with Singapore Airlines, the 772ER now makes the two cities served non-stop without stopping in the shite of an airport - Mumbai (which incidentally has recently received funds for a major, and needed, revamp).

BApilot2b: Actually, the "downgrade" of MAN-SIN to 772 isn't a reaction to poor loads, but rather a response to demand for nonstop MAN-SIN services with quick cinnections to Australia. Currently the daily 744 flights operate via BRU, ZRH or BOM. Current loads do not justify a nonstop 3-class 744, hence the introduction of 2-class 772s.

And the other thing about the introduction of 772s on SIN-MAN is that it represents an increase of around 30% on available capacity. Typically the 747s have around 200 to 220 passengers on board on arrival/departure from MAN.

To echo David_itl: Currently SQ operates 7x/week 744 with 378 seats each flight. Assuming 50% of seats are allocated to downline stations (CDG, ZRH, BOM, BRU), that means that SQ has a net seat capacity of 1,323 per week.
With 4x/week nonstop 772 with 285 seats, and 3x/week one-stop 744, SQ will have a net seat capacity of 1,707/week. That's a 29% increase. Not to mention the extra cargo capacity.
