The first of 18 Boeing 777-300ER's for SQ has already rolled out. There isn't really that much of a difference from the original non-ER 773's, except that it sports General Electric GE90-115B engines while the non-ER 773's sport Rolls Royce Trent 892. By the way, if you have not notice, the new 773ER sports bigger titles (SINGAPORE AIRLINES) and they are located more closer to the front.

Here is the link to the photo.

Is it just me or does the blue on the tail not go all the way down to the fuselage? Also, is the golden pigeon lower than normal?

9V-SPJ

Correct. The blue in the tail doesn't go all the way to the fuselage as this seems to be the revised SQ livery which I like, even though it's a modest change. The Golden Pigeon as you refer it to is not lowered, it just looks that way because of the blue tail color not going all the way to the fuselage.

Does any body know the configuration? Will it have suites in First Class ?

Here is another picture of The First SQ 777-300ER.
Now you can see that the blue on the tail doesn't go all the way down to the fuselage as 9V-SPJ mentioned before.


So really the only places I see changes are in:

  • The Engines
  • The Tail
  • The Titles
  • And obviously, The Raked Wingtips

According to Boeing Orders and Delivery pages they have 19 on order. They have not taken delivery of that first one they ordered way back on 2001 yet.

That would be remarkable considering that SQ's B777-200ERs seat 285.

No, they didn't order in 2001. The 2001 aircraft listed above was a conversion from a 2001 -200ER order. The conversion took place after the 2004 order.

And... last time i checked that is still an order for an aircraft. And that order was placed in 2001. It may have been converted later but an order is an order and that aircraft has STILL not been delivered. So my claim that there is 19 x 777-300ER's instead of 18 it still valid.

I mean... i could be wrong. But i doubt it.  Wink

I didn't say the 19 number was wrong, or you were wrong about the delivery status. I just pointed out the 2001 aircraft listed on Boeing's website was not ordered in 2001. I was strictly addressing the following statement by you:

It was taken as an option in 2001 along with a B777-200ER order placed then (it was an option for a non-specific B777). In 2005, the option was converted to a firm order for a B777-300ER.

It wasn't an option. It was converted from an existing firm order. You can check their 2004 annual report. At that time, they already had 59 777s on order. They are currently flying 58 772As/772ERs/773s.

correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the interior going to sport the new seats that are coming out on the A380? one theory that I heard as to why SQ wasn't flying the 777 yet was because they were waiting to fly the A380 first, but who knows if that will happen. (once again correct me if I'm wrong)

I would think not, Boeing is cancelling the connexion by Boeing, unless of course that has changed. I hope that they don't cancel it!

I remember clearly. It was the last option SQ held for a non-specific B777. The options taken together with the order for 18 B777-300ERs were specifically for B777-300ERs.

But I also happen to remember clearly that wasn't the case.  Wink And I have supporting data. I had asked you to check their 2004 annual report. If you had, you would have known your memory didn't serve you well this time.  Wink

Here's the link:

http://www.singaporeair.com/saa/en_U...o/investor/annual/SIA_AR_0304.pdf?

The fleet summary is on page 115 (page 117 of the PDF document).

As of March 31st 2004, prior to the 773er order, they operated 52 777s, namely 12 772s, 17 772As, 15 772ers, and 8 773s. They also had 7 777s on order then, or a total of 59 first gen 777s ordered.

Today, they have 58 777s, namely 14 772s, 17 772As, 15 772ers, and 12 773s with no first gen 777s on order.

Trust me, the 19th 773er was converted from an existing order.
