Usual disclaimer : Apologies if there is an existing thread - I searched but couldnt find one .

There has been a lot of talk about the gradual disappearance of the 744 from the SQ pax fleet , but I am wondering what will happen long term with SQs cargo fleet ?

I realise that the economy is in a slump at the moment , but historically that has usually been when SQ place new orders .

Do you think that SQ will continue with the current fleet , or replace with 747-8f , or even downsize to 777Fs ?

They are exploring other freighter types for the future, perhaps when there are more concrete plans for a fleet renewal.

But this point in time, they're keeping their 744Fs, and sending those that are left idling to the desert.



There's always a better way to fly...
