Does anyone know what are the registrations of the 12 SQ B747-400s which are withdrawn from operations?
What will happen to them?

7 of the 12 are going to be flown to the US for long term storage...SMA, SMC, SME, SMF, SMG, SMH, SML while others should probably be returning to service soon, as they are relatively newer planes.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

9V-SVE:
Why the skip from SMH to SML? What about SMI, SMJ, and SMK?

No idea...maybe SML was due for a maintenance check and they decided to get rid of that instead...

SMF will be flying off to VCV soon, or has already done so. Perhaps like SVE said SML was due for a heavy check, and SQ decided to put it into storage, thus saving on maintainance costs.

Chances are Corsair is taking 3 of them. They want to replace the oldest 743s in their fleet (ex-SIA aircraft!)

What about 9V-SMT the one that had the tail strike in Auckland? I would have thought that one would have been withdrawn from service! Or is it back up in the air, as good as new?

Are they permanently in storage, or is it just the post-SARS scenario? How many 747s does SQ still operate at the moment?

A question for you 9V-SVA or 9V-SVE...are the 'SV' registered 777s any different from the SQs or SRs which are also -200s. But It seems only the SVs are used across the Pacific. I've shot all SV's except 9V-SVC,F,I,K and M. Although we are losing daylight..the night shots turn out pretty nice too.

Thanks in Advance,

BN747

BN747:

Those SV* series aircraft are the B777-200ER version, which has two class configuration (Raffles & Economy). They are relatively new.
SpaceBeds (new lie flat seats) are installed in Raffles Class.

I'll repost SailorOrion's question, and add one:

1) How many 744's does that leave in revenue service with SQ?

2) Which ones are those?

The SV* 777s have the higher rated Trent 892 engines versus the Trent 884 on the SQ* and SR* aircraft.

B747-437B:
I think the SR* aircraft also have Trent 892. I might be wrong though.

Tom in NO:
SQ has 38 B747-400s and 12 were taken out of service, according to its website. SQ's B747-400s were registered 9V-SMA to -SMZ, and -SPA to -SPQ, minus -SMX (dunno why) and -SPK (crashed).

My records show that only the SV* and the SY* planes are equipped with the Trent 892s.

Confirm B747-437B's statement that SQx and SRx have Trent 884.

Which 744s are left? All the SPx are left, and I suspect everything after SML is still in revenue service.

9V-SMA - Unknown
9V-SMB - Air Pacific
9V-SMC - Unknown
9V-SMD - Air Pacific
9V-SME - Unknown
9V-SMF - Stored, Victorville
9V-SMG - Unknown
9V-SMH - Unknown
9V-SMI - Could be in revenue service. Last pic 13 July in SYD.
9V-SMJ - Still in revenue service I suspect. Last pic of her Aug 18 in LHR.
9V-SMK - Unknown
9V-SML - Stored, Victorville

Feel free to edit my list!

There is no way that 9V-SMI could have been in SYD on 13 July this year 'cos I flew her on SIN-AKL on the 12th. Hence she would have operated back AKL-SIN on the 13th.

SMI was seen over Sydney flying back to SIN.

B747-437B/Tsentsan:

According to SIA's website, B777-200s are equipped with Trent 884/892, while B777-200ERs are fitted with Trent 892.

On Jetphotos.net, 9V-SQK is fitted with Trent 892. You are right, SR* have Trent 884. My bad.

I don't know whether the information is accurate, though.

There was this confusion over the what engines powered which 'series' of the B777s at SIA.

But pilots and the training manual have verified that

B772s SQx - Trent 884
B772s SRx - Trent 884
B772s SVs - Trent 892
B773s SYx - Trent 892

Just to verify  Smile

Cheers!
