Sydney (the kangaroo route) will be with the A380.
Possibilities for the 777-300ER? Some say MAN, some say ZRH. But truthfully, SQ has not announced anything yet. It is pretty vague, because the 773ER will seat as many (or less) than SQ's 772ER because of its more luxurious interior. So, I take it they will use the aircraft where they aren't competitive enough?
Possibilities in my opinion: SIN-TPE-LAX, SIN-DXB, SIN-MAN, SIN-JNB, SIN-AMS, SIN-ZRH, and maybe SIN-AMS-ORD and SIN-HKG-LAS.

Quoting OldAeroGuy (Reply 4): But the A380 will not arrive until a year after SQ receives its first 773ER. Sydney could be a possible destination in the interim.
No, not Sydney for sure. It is something like this: A 747 leaves SIN and goes to LHR, then it goes to SYD, stopping at SIN. They it finally returns to SIN. So, if you want SYD with the 777-300ER, LHR will also have to be 777-300ER, and that won't happen.
SYD can get the 777-300ER is they add another frequency, but I don't know if there is that much demand for 4 flights a day.
