I know that SQ has sold a lot of 744s in the past few years, but not fully sure who are their buyers. Here are my questions:
1) Apart from Cathay Pacific, Air Pacific, Iberia, Air India, any more buyers?
2) What are the future of those stored 744s like 9V-SMA and 9V-SMH?
3) Will B-HKD, B-HKE and B-HKF be passenger aircraft or Cargo? Will they keep using PW engine or switch to RR?
4) Any future plan of SQ to sell more of their 744s?
If possible, please provide a full list of the 744s that have been sold and will be sold.

Eventually the 777-300ER/ 380 will replace the 747-400s. I doubt SQ are in the market for 747 Advanced. The newest 747-400 is only 2-3 years old so the current fleet of 747-400 will still be around for quite a while.

I thought SMA is the oldest one. 15 years old? Not very old to be honest.
From what I heard these A 380/B777-300ER will be used for expansion. The current B 747-400 fleet will probably stay for a while
I suppose there is a market for the B 747 Advanced. There is a gap between the A 380 and the B 777-300ER. Besides the B 747 Advanced can carry more passengers. SQ is always interested in new aircraft. Let's see.
