Quoting EddieDude (Reply 1): So, I read not too long ago that SQ was also going to refurbish the cabins of the 777-200 planes. Any updates on this? See:
SQ is to replace its 777s with A330-300s on many of its flights as part of its "product enhancement efforts.". IMHO That in itself is not a good indication they are planning on refurbishing the cabins of the 772s

Their 772s are fine for the regional routes under five hours that they mainly do these days. The longest run they do i think would be MAN and even then they are fine. Small screen but AVOD, lots of legroom but no powerports etc.
Still better than anything BA have in the cheap seats! Bear in mind that their main scheduled carrier competition for flights around Asia very rarely have PTVs let alone AVOD - TG 772A and older A333, MH A333, MU A333, CZ 772 and A332, CA 767, A330 and 772, CI A333 and A343 and 738 etc. Their "old" 772s are still better than anything you'll find on the US carriers, and SQ are replacing them!
MAN is moving to 77W via DME - cool. SQ's 77Ws are just absolutely stunning. A333 has same product. EK's ICE is a shade better in terms of features, but in terms of hard product they are about the same and SQ canes (pun intended lol sorry) EK on the soft product aspect.
It does amuse me to hear people moaning about their old and knackered 772s out here in SQLand. People do not realise how good they've got it! I've got a DL 763 leg coming up! Gutted! Maybe I should post a trip report so everyone can see how good we've got it out here by comparison!
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

"The first refitted B777-200 aircraft will operate on the Singapore-Shanghai route from 23 February. As more B777-200s are refitted, selected flights to Beijing, Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hong Kong and Chennai will also be operated with these aircraft."
