Singapore Airlines To MAN - Quick Question

Just a quick question regarding SQ's operations at Manchester, UK.

I am looking at flying from MAN to SIN and return next July/August, will there be any changes of equipment/routing on the flights?

Currently SQ operates a mix of 744's (via ZRH) and 772ER's (Direct). I know that the MAN-ZRH-SIN will be dropped in favour for terminators at ZRH.

I've heard from many people that MAN will receive the 77W, is this true? And will it receive it by July/August 2007?

Will there also be any changes on the LHR route, or will it stay 744's until the A380's come?

Thanks in advance,

Rob!  wave

Direct

I'm sure you mean non-stop?! After all, BA can take you "directly" to numerous long-haul destinations, only if you change at LHR.

Don't think there's any changes planned for SQ other than the dropping of the 2 747s per week in Dec (interestingly, the MAN online timetable shows 777s operating daily starting in January for a couple of weeks).

Firstly, congratulations and Kudos for choosing Singapore Airlines.

Unfortunately, now is not the best time to be asking (that or I have the wrong information).

It seems that due to aircraft shortage, MAN will lose the two B747-400 services via Zurich.

However, the rumour was that Manchester would have the B77W in early 2007. This has been quashed however due to no B77Ws being allocated until at the very earliest May 2007 (according to the Airline's latest press release).

So in essence, it's a fluid situation.

The LHR route will stay as 3 x B747-400s until I think January 2008.

A second source would be recommended.



Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

The 77W will not be flown on every route! Then what are SQ going to do with their 777-200ER aircrafts? I believe that SQ will maintain flights flown with their current 777s to destinations like MAN where it would be more feasible for SQ to do perhaps eventually a daily double.

No plans for 77W into MAN now, and I wouldn't expect it any time soon either. No need for F from MAN for a start and if they intend charging up to 20% extra for the new product then that wouldn't help SQ's J market ex-MAN.

You may get a nonstop 772ER on Tuesday's and Thursday if they can find an aircraft from somewhere.

However it's worth keeping an eye on as everything is quite fluid at SQ at the moment and they can't seem to stick to plans for fleet utilisation very well.
