One of my favorite liveries.

Only one problem...

This is not Singapores first 777-300... in fact they have ordered 12 x 777-300's and have taken delivery of ALL of them.
http://www.airliners.net/search/phot...eing%20777-312&distinct_entry=true

They do have 19 x 777-300ER on order... this is the first ER to be completed.

I seriously hope that the tail will not remain this way... if it does it will look quite horrible. And I still prefer the "older" smaller fonts found on the B777-300s.

Anyway here's a link... the thumbnail seems to have disappered.

Any idea whether SQ will go ahead and introduce its revamped inflight product on the 77W instead of waiting for the 380? I should think that they will at least consider doing that since CX has just introduced theirs.

New Raffles (and presumably Y) is being launched in the next 3 weeks or so. The new F was being held for the A380, but depending on how bad the latest delays are, SQ may need to rethink this.

The launching of the new 773ER F/J/Y product will be on the 19-20OCT. Another huge launching coming will be the A380 suitte(Upper FCL). 773ER and A380 share similar J/Y product.

Please tell me the B777-300ER gets some sort of F suite in a 1-2-1 configuration. The Sky Suites from the Megatop would be fine.

Don't worry...it will never be what u experience in our regional 777s FCL. These new FCL on 773ER are real FCL for long haul. The A380 suitte will be a class above skysuitte.

Thanks. The only improvement I could want to the Sky Suite would be a door that closes.

When they were still expecting to get the first 380's early next year, they were going to fit SkySuites to the first batch of 773ER's to hold the new F cabin back for a flagship launch on the 380. This seems to be fast going out of the window with further delays so I can't see SQ wanting to keep putting SkySuites in the 773ER and then have to refit them again once they launch the new F on the 380. A handful would have been fine.

To say SQ are p*ssed off with Airbus over being denied the opportunity to launch the new F on the 380 is an understatement.

> Pieinthesky, if you carefully read the words of CHANGYOU, you will notice that it sounds like the FC on 773 will be different from the FC on A380... so actually the delay of the A380 might have only caused trouble for what regards the similarities of Y and J.

> Zvezda, I'd rather have a double closing door as in EK instead of a single one. In case of emergency, if the single sliding door is blocked, I can't imagine a wealthy 78 yo billionaire wanting to climb over it to escape (I think EK "walls" are 1.2 - 1.4 m high). Theoretically, with two doors you always get one more chance (as long as you are not too much overweight).

Cheers

You're absolutely correct Ikarus2006. SQ initial plan was to market the new product on the A380(Flagship) because it is wiser to launch the new product together with the biggest aircraft in the world for more "impact" rather than on an existing design which SQ already have. But due to the uncertain delivery dates and more delayes to come therefore SQ decided to shift it's focus on the B773ER(Workhorse). So it was a big headache for the marketing department crew especially when so much $$$ are dump into advertising the A380. And 1 of the highlights will be the new JCL. And if any of you think Spacebed is good...This will make your jaw drop... Smile.

Thanks for telling me what to read, and I'm sorry to spoil the little fan fest going here, but I think you'll find that the same new F is going in BOTH the A380 and the 773ER.

I repeat what I said earlier. SQ wanted to hold the launch of the new F for a big flagship parade with the first A380 flight(s). They were even prepared to fit SkySuites to the first few 773ER's to 'protect' this big launch of the new F. This was before the last official delay and the new (as yet unannounced) further delay.

I think it's just the service product, rather than the particular route, that's being launched on the 17th.

Will the new F and J classes be retrofitted onto the 744, or will they just leave that as it is?

It must certainly be annoying for SQ to have this happen, but at the end of the day, these things happen with new aircraft and in due course, they'll have their aircraft.

Any word yet on the final pax total for the 773, or presumably we'll have to wait until the new config and product are introduced to see what the final numbers will be?

Knowing SQ, I expect the B747-400s will stay as they are. The seats are not really lagging the competition and the aircraft are being sold off.

If I didn't remember wrongly it's 284 for the 77W. Source the Straits Times froma few days ago though I can't seem to find it now. Its the article about SQ's new 777-300ER rolling out. I'm sure some local fourmers can help out here.

No route, the new cabins and IFE will be officially launched on the 17th. At the moment the plan is to send a 773ER to CDG on 1 December for the inaugural I believe.

Their new IFE is called 'eX2' and is supplied by Panasonic Avionics Corporation.
