The picture is that of Airbus' A350XWB that where he's getting it from. Pretty bad mistake coming from a premier airline!!!

That is a picture of the A350, not the 787, yet the page says nothing about any Airbus product.

It's a mistake, that's where he got "Airbus" from.

An unfortunate rare lapse and error on SIA's part.

Correct. That's not the 350X. It's just the A350 (version 3?).

Quoting Stitch (Reply 4):

Yes, A388 upper deck, it looks like.

Again, this is because they only photo ready mockups they had were of the A388, and weren't expecting to launch the product on the 773ER first...

I know it is supposed to be a 773ER, however when SQ showed off the new seats for all three classes, they used the A388 mock-up because they did not have a 773ER cabin or mock-up to shoot in.

I don't see a mistake here. The top part of the article speaks of new "cabin products" which include the new seat suites. The brochure doesn't state the cabin is limited to one aircraft type or the other nor does the brochure state the photo is the interior of a boeing aircraft. Really, the interior of airbus and boeing aircraft are not all that different to the average traveler. All have windows, all are big round tubes. Sure the 380 second floor differs from other planes with it's curved ceiling, but to the average traveler they just wont see that stuff.

The bottom portion of the brochure deals with an entirely different topic, SIA's purchase of the 787.

I don't see a gaffe or mistake

The A350 loks like a OLD A350-version with the cockpit windows of the XWB.

Which version could that be? A350Mk Threeandahalf...

why did they order 19 773ERs? why don't they just go for 20? how do they figure out these kinda numbers when they can't even be certain where they'll use it to fly to?

i know some airlines are superstitious (they skipped 9V-SWC) so perhaps superstition has something to do with ordering 19 77Ws?

i read somewhere that they'll have a total of 77 777s. real lucky indeed.

I think that's confidential to the airline. Route planning is very dynamic.

Are you sure about this. Look at the cockpit windows. IIRC this is from the latest edition + there has not been any official pictures of the A350 in Singapore Airlines before the XWB was revealed.

It is a mistake, true. But who, apart from us, will notice?! And, more importantly, who will care?? It makes little difference which a/c they show, the general public will have no clue if it's right or wrong and even if they did, it wouldn't affect their decision on who to fly with. Perhaps SQ merely thought the A350 was more photogenic! Lol.

The picture IS NOT of a 773ER. 777 don'y have winglets. The inside will be truly a new level of Singapore's Signature service. I can't wait to fly on one.

United Airlines made an even bigger mistake three years ago, when they ran a picture of a 747 passing overhead in one of their newspaper ads.

Unfortunately, the 747 was easily identifiable as a Northwest 747. United wasn't aware of the gaffe until Northwest made the media aware of it.

Can someone find this ad somewhere? I'm very curious to have a look at it here.

We shouldn't even have to ASK ourselves which "version" of the 350 this was. But, because there have been so many itterations of the plane -- launched, re-launched, etc. ad nauseum, it's difficult for us to discern which is which. I wish they'd just launch the thing once and for all and start construction.

Well... that's the point, really. We're confused because there were SO MANY versions of the A350 foisted on the airlines as new... all new, etc. You're correct that the average flying public wouldn't know, but it was still incumbent on SIA to get it right (correct image). It's sortof a slap in the face to Boeing, who I'm guessing really DO care about which plane's image appears in that advertisement. They've got the number one all-time best selling widebody (before EIS), and it's been chosen by one of the premier airlines of the world. I think they care about the image in that ad.

No... it speaks volumes about "A" and the VOLUME of revisions to the A350 -- If "we" are confused, I can't imagine what the airlines must be going through  Smile

No one is saying that the picture is of a 77W. They're saying that is is a picture of an Airbus A350, which SIA states is a Boeing 787. The 77W only came into the equation with the cabin mock up above, of the new first class cabin. The cabin mock up is of an Airbus A380, however the new cabin will first fly with the 77W.

I checked it out, and that is true. The latest edition also does not have the winglets as shown in the picture. That makes this even more weird, as SIA did not sign any contract before the A350XWB but still someone has put the SIA colors on the A350 (part 4?) edition of the plane
