The LR is due into SYD from SIN at approx 1700 on SUN the 17th of July, that would get it out of SIN at approx 0800 that morning, as long as it flies directly to SYD !!!
Can't tell you when it is getting to SIN, but they must be adding stops as it was originally meant to get to SYD on the 16th and depart to AKL on the 19th which is still the case.
Boeing is bringing a 747-200(sic) to India for demonstration. I guess this is especially remarkable, since the 747-100 had her maiden flight only a few weeks back. Anyway, FWIW, the story says August 5th.
The best time to plant a tree is 40 years ago. The second best time is today.

So whats the deal? They send a new plane out on world tour to sell, or is it mainly out there to be seen by the public? If they use this tour strictly for selling purposes then that would show you who they are and aren't trying to smooze, correct?

It's to sell. Public is secondary as only geeks like us know much about the 772LR. The world will know it when they can fly routes once only dreamed of. Of course, most pax won't know the difference between the 772LR they are on and the 772ERs they've flown for years, nor will most know the difference between any of the planes outside of: regional jet; narrow body jet (usually misidentified by pax as anything from a 707 to a 767 to an Airbus with no number); wide body of non-descript designation, though many still think they are flying a DC10, even when they aren't on NW; 747 (aren't they all the same?); and that new giant Airbus thing...
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

That was one of the most funniest errors made after the "introduction" of the Boeing 737-200LR by Indian Aviation correspondents
