Just wondering guys as SQ's newest 744 9V-SPQ was in AKL today and I thought that the aircraft with Wiseman installed were used on LHR and SYD routes, or is there now enough aircraft with it installed to operate other routes?

I find it highly irregular that a teenager could have an obsession to the extent that you do, and although you are slowly improving, you obsession causes you to search out anything bad about other airlines to improve the image of your obsession.
I admit, I don't have a first clue what Wiseman is. I admit it. Why is that irregular? Surely if someone asks questions, or mentions that they don't know something, it is blindingly obvious that they know little about that matter, otherwise they wouldn't be asking would they?, so of course what is reflected is that that person does not know. Logical really, and not very irregular at all.

WISEMEN / Matsushita Avionics 3000 is being progressively installed on Megatop 747s and all Jubilee 777s.
I find it highly irregular that somebody, even an obsessive-compulsive person such as yourself, insists on referring to aircraft types by their rather stupid corporate names assigned to them by some freak in a cubicle somewhere in Singapore. You really are as strange as you seem.

What the hell is wrong with you all? Are you all completely deranged one-eyed fools? Goodness gracious me! Why the hell must you consistently taunt and lower Singapore_Air in your every comment? Why is it ok for you, cx flyboy, to again and again market all of CX’s high points and capitalise on SQ’s bad? Wake up man! If you hate what Singapore_Air says, then you’re just as bad so look at yourself in the mirror…if that is possible. We all know Singapore_Air is passionate about his SIA and yes, of course I realise how many of you find it difficult to comprehend such loyalty but if he happened to be passionate about your beloved CX then I’m sure you’d have no qualms whatsoever and would be the first to encourage. You can’t deny that Singapore_Air certainly does provide huge amounts of often valuable industry info which most of us find pretty bloody useful. But alas, he can never say the right thing. Its ridiculous and too many of you react like you should be in kindergarten.
Now that I’ve had my little bitch, WISEMEN is installed on a fair few of SQ’s 744s flying the long-haul routes, especially to Europe. But as we all know, anything SQ decides to implement takes about as the average human’s lifecycle before completed, only to start again with something new. Lots of the 777s have it. From memory, SRJ, SRK, SRL, SYF, SYG, SVA-SVG have it. Haven’t tried it yet but will look forward to doing so…provided that all the technical niggles have been sorted.

Why does all that not surprise me? You know, I never used to go on and on about CX. In fact I used to be the first to critisize them. Perhaps you do not remember. Just like HKGSpotter now is a big airbus supporter because of all the Boeing supporters who unjustifyably insult Airbus all the time, it has affected me because certain members used to deliberately find bad news about CX and good news about SQ. These certain members are improving, but the damage is done I am afraid. If you do not like it, then I am truly sorry. When I see praise and praise about something that I see faults in, I like to highlight the issue. I don't think there is anything wrong with that....but then, with a username like yours I guess there is bias there anyway, so perhaps I should save my breath.

Cx flyboy, although the damage is done, as a forum member I'd really like to see you and Hkgspotter be able to stop this. I'm sure that if you set a good example for everyone else here, Singapore_Air will most certainly not post biases towards SQ and against all other airlines. In any case, if both parties continue to provoke each other with silly actions like these, it doesn't do anything to help the case and only makes it even worse.
So in concluding, I really really would like to see all this childish bickering come to an end so that we can concentrate on more fruitful discussions.

Having fun? Maybe initially yes, watching the both of you bicker is very entertaining but it's turning out to be very personal and vengeful. And I think it does nothing to help the situation. If something has to be stopped, one party has to be the first to take action. Singapore_Air has toned down on his anti-"all other airlines" nonsense although I admit that I do find one or two threads from him a little annoying. I hope that you could be the first person to initiate a stop to this. Hopefully, everyone will follow after that.

Very mature of you to suggest that. If I had read this before I saw you guys at the airport this afternoon, I would have come over to pat you on the back. Unfortunately, you cannot expect others to grow up if they do not wish to. That's life. Sad but true.
The old saying "if you can't beat them, join them" is just so true. Many people succumb to this, as can be seen in the case of cx_fly_boy joining the ranks of Hkgspotter1 in their constant bickering with S_air. Many others took the easy way out by joining in the bickering instead of being objective and concentrating on the topic at hand. There are others, who are just anti-establishment, and will try to be rebellious and fine tune their opinions just so that they are seen to be different. These are the attention seekers. The best way to deal with them is to ignore them.
Fortunately I still find reading the constant bickering between the 2 HKG members and a particular British member entertaining, so I am not too affected by all the junk comments they post. I simply love to see them making a fool of themselves on the www.
"Wise men say only fools rush in........................"
Hmmm....could that be the reason why CX installed the flatbeds in J class before SQ did?
No offence Cx-fly-boy, I just couldn't resist that one.

Oh before I forget (getting old), I just love airliners, I am not fanatically loyal to any airline. My username has nothing to do with my orientation towards SQ. I wanted cx_fly_boy initially, but you grabbed it before I did.
