Due to severe acute respiratory syndrome spreading across Asia, Singapore Airlines Limited is reporting cuts in bookings and cancellations.

"We continue to receive cancellations and fewer bookings to SARS-affected destinations. We are monitoring the situation closely and, if necessary, will adjust our capacity on the routes concerned," a Singapore Airlines spokeswoman said. She also added that potential areas for capacity or futher capacity cuts include CAN, HKG and HAN.

"If it continues and impacts people's desire to travel, then there could be room for downward revenue revisions," said John Casey of DBS Vickers.

I'm a university student and we don't count as "schools". Only primary, secondary schools, and junior colleges (basically children from 6 to 18 years old) have closed till April 6.

I am eagerly awaiting the news for the closure of universities too, since exams are little more than 3 weeks away and i desperately need more time to study.

Hey Khoa, I VISITED SIA ENGINEERING TODAY! It was an industrial visit organised by the Mechanical Engineering department of my university.

It was an awesome experience, seeing all the planes at the SIA EC Hanger at Changi Airport. We even went in a Jubile 777-300 9V SYC and they switched on the lights for us and we played with the seats for a while... duh. Followed by a visit to the cockpit where certain things were explained to us.

Those RR Trent Engines are awesome!!! They're mighty huge.

I seemed to be the only one who knew anything about aviation. Was funny when people were pointing to a Megatop and asking me if it was an Airbus.... hahhaahaha. Anyway I can't tell the dif between the F16 and the F117 so yeah....

I did ask a question to the guy taking us around "Is it true that the Rolls Royce Trent Engines had experienced a larger inflight shutdown rate that resulted in a delay in obtaining ETOPS 180 for the 777s ?"

Of course with such a smart alec question, he was stunned for a while. Then he said " Initially we did have some problems because it was our first time dealing with the new RR Engines and our engineers were new to the model, but now we don't have such problems anymore."

He then went "How do you know so much??" I was like... "oh never mind.... "

We also did visit some areas where they did maintenence of the seats and there were brandnews seats (First, Raffles and Economy class seats of all kinds) in this huge room. Some stripped, some just lying there under plastic sheets.

I saw the Spacebeds and told him "THose have been giving you lots of problems of late, haven't they??" He just smiled....

At the lobby of Airline House, there is a digital board showing the total load factor of the day, for SIA. For Thursday, March 27 2003, SIA's load factor was 60%. As they require about 70% to break even, I regret to inform you that SIA made a loss, on paper, for the day of Thursday, March 27, 2003.

Khoa, I'm sorry to be the one to break such heart wrenching news to you!

Well sorry for digressing, but i just had to tell all of you about my visit to SIA Engineering!

Singapore Airlines has confirmed that a Singapore Girl on SQ025 when a Singaporean doctor was diagnosed with symptoms of SARS has shown the symptoms of SARS.

She has a fever but is stable. She worked in the rear of the Economy Class cabin where the doctor and his family were seated.
