Believe they are selling 4 units out on lease to other carriers. Not sure on the other 3?

No, SIA is only selling the 4 that are currently out of the fleet. Air Atlanta has 2 and I believe Air India has the other two. They are among the oldest in the fleet and some of the first delivered. I think NWA had the first 3 then SIA got a bunch. The aircraft to be sold were in the first delivery.

SQ 744's 9V-SMK, 9V-SML and 9V-SMN are going to CX. They will be reconfigured to CX arrangement next spring. 9V-SMN is first, then 9V-SMK and they are both already in Xiamen. 9V-SML may still be in Victorville, CA.

CX and SQ seem to have a very different strategy when it comes to the 744. CX's existing ones are highly utilised, and they are taking on more to boost capacity. SQ, on the otherhand, has had surplus 744s for many years. I wonder how difficult it is to predict the number of planes you would require in a fleet.

SQ's website still lists 6 744s as on option - this is rather misleading - the chances of these being taken up are probably zero! They also list 6 as being withdrawn.

So let me recount and see if this is accurate:

2x for Iberia/Air Atlanta
2x for Air Pacific
2x for Air India
6x for Cathay Pacific
5x for Dragonair
5x for that leasing company who will convert them to freighters.

That's quite a significant part of the 744 fleet already gone.

Actually, the second 744 produced still flies for LH as D-ABVB.

Are the ones going to CX going to be refitted with RR engines or are they keeping the PWs?

Any 744s going to leasing companies? Never heard of that

The ex-SQ 744s will NOT be reengined to RR engines. Re-engining an airliner with a different type is a very rare occurence and very expensive. Of the six 744s 2 will be converted to freighters. All 6 will retain their P&W engines.

As for Dragonair's 744s, they will be converted to 744SFs as well.

It was reported the other day that a US leasing company had put in orders for some 744SF conversions, and apparently they are ex-SQ machines.

Ok...The 4 744s just announced as being sold are the 4 aircraft currently out on lease. 2 at Air Atlanta and 2 at Air India. They are among the first 744s delivered to SQ.

Does anyone know who is the next owner of the 1000th B747 (9V-SMU)?

9V-SMU is not among the 744s sold or leased out. But it won´t be too long until this aircraft is due. The "1000th 747"-sticker it carried for 10 years has been removed recently in order that it looses its unique role.

Are they offloading SMU as well? Haven't heard of that.

Does anyone have the article regarding the US leasing company's purchase of SQ 744s?

SIA did say they were going to phase out their 744s in a few years in favor of the A380... Why are they even keeping a hold on those six options?

This is just speculation, but maybe they'll order new 744s? (I HIGHLY DOUBT).

PyroGX41487,

The oldest ones, not the entire fleet.

New B 744s? If Boeing decides to go ahead with the B 747 Advanced then I guess SQ will order some

Whoops! Nearly made an @$$ of myself there... So these seven are the oldest in their fleet? How old is the next set of seven would you project?

United Airline,
I don´t have the article at hand, but there was one in last weeks issue of Flightinternational about Guggenheim buying the two 744s leased to Air India currently.
