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.

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.
