I will be flying quite a bit this coming December starting Singapore Airlines SQ6/5 Boeing 747-400 to Los Angeles and on my return to SIN, SQ192/SQ193 to Penang on Boeing 777-300 and Airbus A310-300.
Can anyone tell me their experiences on these types of aircraft (esp. A310s of SIA coz I heard they're quite OLD-ish and SIA can't bear to replace them hee hee!)

Well let me tell u what....
1st class on the Boeing 747-400 is amazing .. no noise..
But when ur in the back.... im sorry but it will be a bit loud. Same thing goes for the 777. I sat in seat 44 on the -200 model... the last seat with 2 seats only.
It the loudest part of the plane and the most turbulant.
But ur right beside the bath-room so its wicked !!!
Im warning u its turbulant back there!

I haven't flown on SIA's A310s, but I have flown on an Emirates 310 and I can tell you it's a very nice aircraft. I don't know if SIA has PTVs on A310s, but even if they don't it's only a 1h10 flight and you could always ask to visit the cockpit if you get bored. SIA will, of course, give you excellent service and I am sure you will enjoy flying on an A310. Probably not as much as the 777, though!
