I was just looking at plastic airplane scale model boxes of SQ and JAL, both the B744 and found differences in the dimentions stated there. Here is what is written.

Length: 70.7m
Wing Span: 64.9m
Overall Height: 19.3m
Cruising Speed: 916km/h

Length: 70.6m
Wing Span: 64.4m
Overall Height: 19.3m
Average Cruising Speed: 926km/h
(The JAL box did not state "average" but the SQ box did.)

Now, here is the data from the Boeing homepage.

Wing Span: 64.4 m
Overall Length: 70.6 m
Tail Height: 19.4
Typical Cruise Speed at 35,000FT: 910km/h

The differences may be slight but I still find it interesting.
