Hello guys,

Got this from my daily newspaper in Singapore. SIA will order 21 new jets and it will be delivered by March 2001. It includes 15 B777-200s to replace all of their A340-300s and 6 more B747-400s

Cheers.

Alvin

Only 21? I would think that with THREE WHOLE MONTHS SQ could buy a lot more planes.

Ah well....

Will any of these new planes be for Air New Zealand and Ansett?

There are strong indications some 744 and 772s will be used by Ansett for its international expansion. One of the first markets will be Australia-USA. I am not so sure about Air NZ

Corrections:

SIA will take these 21 planes till March 2002, not 2001.
The next B747-400 is due on March 2001.

Local reports here in Perth, Western Australia, indicate that until these extra ordered a/c arrive SIA will be reducing their 21 SIN-PER-SIN flights/week because the B777s are required for unexpected premium traffic growth in SE & East Asia. As far as I know the SIN-PER-SIN flights are making money but perhaps not in the higher yield areas.
Apparently CX is facing similar "problems", with Aus pax being mainly tourist and VF&R so is also looking to service their higher yielding business pax by reducing flights downunder.
Could be an opportunity for QF to fill the gaps.
Anyone have any definite ideas as to what is happening in this area?

Kiwi Dave,

All these planes ordered are for their OWN use.

Cheers.
