Flight global tweeted that: "Singapore Airlines orders $7.7bn worth of jets - 5 #Airbus A380s and 20 A350s, plus low-cost arm Scoot will take 20 of SIA's #Boeing 787-9s"

Very interesting. I'm please Scoot will get new planes. I enjoyed their service.

and very interesting that the 787s are being moved from the mainline to the locost airline - looks like SIA needs the extra capacity of the A350 over the 789 - assuming that theses are for the A359 or A35J.

Great news for the A380 programme and the third customer to place a third order

Here is the flightglobal article.

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...0s-transfers-787s-to-scoot-378005/

Deliveries from 2017 (assuming that is for both A350's and A380's).

How long do SQ usually keep their airplanes?

By the time the new order starts delivery, their oldest A380's will be 10+ years old. Not that I think they will be replaced, but is weird to think that the aircraft will already be a decade old!

Airbus will take back the 5 A340-500s and SQ will stop non-stop service due to "lack of replacement aircraft in its fleet with "sufficient range and operating economics"".

So no 777LRs, but will it be resumed with a variant of the A350???

I looked for some clue as to which variant of the A350 had been ordered. I guess the default is to assume more A359's

If it is more A359's, that might give us a bit of context around the reports that SQ are also lead candidates for the 787-10 - by which I mean it might be good evidence that the two types can be quite logically operated side-by-side

If they turn out to be A350-1000's then that provides context in a different way

The A380 needs the orders more than the A350. I was starting to get worried about the lack of orders for VLA.

As I said in another thread, SQ's follow up order for the A350is more than logical:

Quoting na (Reply 14):
Those A350s will surely replace the last of the 772s.

Their existing order for A350s should take care of that.This additional order might very well be to replace some 77W's as well, in 2018 the oldest will be 12 years old, SQ usually doesn't keep their airplanes longer than that.

Quoting zkojq (Reply 7):
I guess that answers the question if if SIA will or won't get 787-10s.

I don't know, rumor was they could be launch customer of the 787-10, to replace the A333s which are on short lease.

I hope AF manages to firm their order this year to place the A350 firmly in the black with 40+ net.

As a long shot we might just also get the IAG decision on widebody twns which coudl be another 25-50 planes. If those two happens a disapointing year for the A350 could end up being a bumper one.

There was talk at launch time of a A359R but this has been mentioned for several years now.

I think this could signal the end of long thin ULH routes - they just don't work in today's environment.
It could also make A and B think twice about committing big dollars to developing future ULH derivatives when there is a much more lucrative market for medium range low CASM derivatives such as the 787-10.
Unless the 359R is part of a freighter program (like the 77L/77F) it might not see the light of day.

You´re right with that. Like EK SQ will certainly start replacing the oldest 77Ws by 2016-18.

Indeed!
Slightly odd that the engine choice for the 787s STILL hasn't been made. I can only speculate that SQ want Trents, but that they aren't happy with the price RR are offering.

107 RayChuang : I wonder if SQ might convert part of the A350-900 order to A350-900R. That could make it possible for SQ to resume the LAX/EWR-SIN non-stop service on
108 JerseyFlyer : I agree, though they retain flexibility to extend the leases if necessary. The new 5 will be "better" than the first 5 in all sorts of ways and I the
109 Revelation : Not really sure, but the 787-9 and -10 are surely tough competition for the 777s in the Scoot role. They seem almost tailor made for a pan-Asia LCC.
110 scbriml : At the time, it was probably the best option for them. They were also expecting to have them all delivered by 2013 (whereas they won't get the first
111 Stitch : I wonder if this ties into Aspire Aviation's rumor of SQ ordering the 787-10: right company, just wrong subsidiary. Maybe. Or maybe since SQ had some

113 Stitch : I'm inclined to agree that SQ likely won't operate the 787, unless they do take the 787-10 as an A330-300 replacement when those come off lease.
114 StickShaker : I'm guessing that they wont launch it at all. I dont see Airbus in a rush to launch any 359R - how many genuine ULH routes are out there ? I suspect
115 art : SQ appear to have found ways to use the aircraft profitably. I wonder if they will replace their A380''s with more of the same when they reach 10+ ye
116 Post contains images MaverickM11 : Besides everyone ? I don't see why not; SQ is going to progressively move into smaller volume, higher yield traffic and leave the high volume, low yi
117 Stitch : They just did with this order - they will replace the first five A380s as their 10-year lease term ends. Unlikely. RR might have a Trent 900 PiP out
118 PM : Not necessarily. It may be that the 777-200ER is good but the 787-9 is better. Which, of course, it should be... Your logic would suggest that JetSta
119 astuteman : The only thing I'd say there is that Airbus will one day develop the A350F, and it will almost certainly be based on the A350-1000 weights, engines,
120 zeke : I have been critical on here of how inconsistent SQ is with their cabin product, staying with a wider airframe for the premium airline will allow for
121 Post contains links LAXDESI : As per FG article, Scoot may take a mixed order of 788, 789, and 7810. Could Scoot get some 788 before 789? http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...con
122 StickShaker : I agree (post #21) although I do think any 350F would be some time away given the presence of the 330F. Regards, StickShaker
123 Post contains images frigatebird : Certainly the A350F will be developed one day, much like you describe. Still don't know about the A359R though. The 77F followed the 77L a couple of

125 kaitak : The -10, definitely, but I'd be very surprised to see Scoot going for the -8. I agree and Airbus will certainly need to ensure, as far as possible th
126 9VSIO : I stand corrected. Makes for a good story though!
127 infinit : Times have changed. In the late 80s when EK was a new startup modelled largely on SQ's business model, SQ bought a then-unprecedented number of 747s.
128 EK413 : Just like Boeing buying the A343s and in return sold SQ the B777... Love an airline which takes pride in it's fleet and sticking to it's young fleet
