Oh my... another A380 incident. The aircraft certainly does not need such publicity.
As to SQ they always do all they can to minimize the trouble. I am sure they will give the passengers vouchers for discounts on their next flights or some other perks.
It is always unconvenient to be stuck inside an aircraft while it is grounded.
I remember our adventure and forced grounding at NGO on the first A380 flight from Singapore to Narita. We got diverted to NGO because of a typhoon and had to sety on the ground some 3 hours before flying back to our original destination. There was tension among the crew and among the passengers as we did not really know what was going on and were placed all the way at the end of the terminals. They brought us some bentos and all but we were all eager to goiing back to NRT as some of us were scheduled to fly back to Singapore on the same aircraft for the NRT-Singapore first 380 flight.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

I assume the layover is 2 nights,on AF above a 10.5 hours flight it's 2 nights, 1 night below 10.5
At any rate they were not trying to recall the crew that arrived the same morning!!
They needed to total 16 crew to be able to take off but lots of them were shopping for xmas downtown Paris and were difficult to reach
