Sorry to spoil your fun boys, but all SQ 772s are ER. I think it was previously discussed that their MTOW was only paper-reduced, i.e. the A/C are true ER.

Does anyone happen to know which flight 9V-SVA will be doing or will it just be lying around?

Hi guys,

just got back from work and confirm that SVB is doing the first flight. According to the stewardess i was talking to, SVA requires a change of controls for some of their economy seats as the testing of the new Krisworld had damaged a few controls. But it will be ready for the next departure.

SQ is giving away harmonicas as gifts to all passengers. Raffles Class pax will receive an extra bottle of "Duval Leroy 1995" champagne.

Most of the fun will be on the AMS-ORD sector as it will be a day flight. Watch out for quizzes and chess/mahjong session on Krisworld where the passengers will pit their skills against one another. The quiz seesion will have prizes to give away.

Seating on the the 777-200er will be 28 Raffles, 255 economy. I went into the cabin for a short while and saw the Raffles Class uses the "Ultimo" seats found in the Megatops744.

Anyway, the staff at the gate gave me a free harmonica Big grin . Too bad they don't have extras to give away.

Cheers

Hi,

i will be waiting tomorrow at Schiphol to make a picture of the aircraft. We already had the two SQ B777's here at Schiphol on their delivery/route proving flight from Seattle. Saw Bravo last Friday but in not no sunny weather.

A dutch aviation enthusiasts travel organization offers a roundtrip AMS-ORD-AMS for about US $200. You can stay at ORD for 9 hours and return with the same plane.

best wishes,
Marcel

Does the new 777-200ER have the "more legroom" in Economy class as claimed by the website's press release?

Legroom on the 777ers:

Economy: 33 inches
Raffles: 57 inches

ALL SEATS will have the AVOD feature.

Hi folks,

To clear up the ERs or not ERs thing. The 9V-SQ series are the basic B777-212s. The 9V-SR series is the "half" ER. It has the ER range engine but it doesn't have the extra fuel tanks like in the full ER. The 9V-SV series is actually the first ER to be in SQ's fleet.

Anyway, great day for SQ.

I just saw 9V-SVC on the Boeing Everett flightline this past Monday. I'm glad I now understand the different registration.

Why does SQ operate THREE different 777's?

There seems to be some confusion around the 777 types that SQ operates. Bill Harms' web site specifies all SQ 777 as ER model. You can check on:
http://www.bird.ch/bharms

From previous discussions on the orders forum, it was mentioned that SQ has always been interested in the ER model only, since it offers the best flexibility and higher residual values.

So the first batch of 772 for SQ were ERs with paper-reduced MTOW. I.e. physically they were not different from "real" ERs, but on paper they were non-ER. When a need arisies for the A/C to perform longer missions, it can be easily "converted" (again on paper) into real ER.

Now maybe someone on the forum can explain in more detail why they need to do that, i.e. what are the cost benefits of having a paper-reduced A/C.

I though the seating configurations is 30J and 293Y (from SQ website) , how come it's 28J and 255Y as claimed by Jubilee777?

With this additional SV series, SQ will have 3 777 configs: 12P 42J 234Y is the SQ-series, 30J 293Y is the SR-series and 30J 255Y is the new SV-series. My guess is that the SR and SV series will be replacing the A340-300s in time to come. According to various sources, SQ will be refitting the rest of the fleet with the new 18.5-inches wide seats and 33-inches legroom. I certainly hope they do it soon before I travel with them at the end of the year.

paper reduced MTOW reduces landing fees, just like what BA did with couple of their 744

I don't know when -SVC will be delivered, but in the 4 days I checked out the flightline, 2 of the 9 or 10 aircraft there left on delivery including an American 777 and Lan Chile's new 767-300ER Freighter. I think once they make it to the flightlline (after being painted), it's only a few days and then they're gone. For what it's worth, also on the flightline were a Cargolux 744F (LX-SVC), JAL 744 (don't remember the reg), a CX 744F (B-HUP), DAL 763ER, Saudia 777ER, Korean 777ER, ATA 753!!! which was built in Renton but for some reason was on the flightline at Everett, and of course the SQ 777ER and the American 777ER. I also saw a new 752ER partially painted which looked like the BA scheme. Hope this helps.
