Currently, Singapore is receiving -212ER's that have been decertified. This means that although they are -ERs, they aren't certified to carry as much weight (lower landing fees) and the engines are derated to 84,000 lbs. However, it wouldn't take much to recertify these planes and change a few engine control chips, and fly the aircraft long-range. OTOH, Singapore is to begin receiving fully certified -200ERs in the next couple of years.
