Singapore Airlines Limited has announced the cessation from 25 March 2003 until a date in May 2003 of three weekly flights to and from Singapore and Dubai.

The reason for this is because of low demand.

Singapore Airlines Cargo has announced that the cargo capacity will be restricted to allow for fuel to be used in case of diversion.

Well, actually they reduce the Cargo in Passenger Aircrafts to be able to carry more fuel.

Just to mention that this is not only done by Singapore Airlines, I think ALL (or at least most) Airlines operating between Asia and Europe will do this and a few even need capacity restrictions (beside Cargo also Passengers).

Aircraft is B777-300 so it gives you an idea why cargo loads are restricted..

During the Gulf War DXB, DHA, IST and CAI were cut altogether because of poor loads and high insurance. Won't be surprised if this happens again.
