When Will SQ Put Space Beds In More 772ER's?

Sat Aug 24, 2002 2:12 pm

Since the start of the Singapore - Hong Kong - Las Vegas service only two aircraft have operated the route. They are 9V-SVF and 9V-SVH. I saw 9V-SVH coming back to Hong Kong on its first flight. Tomorrow I'll go spotting and have my second chance to see this flight and guess what.... its 9V-SVH again !!

Daryl ...

9V-SVH's dedicated to that route since currently its the only one with space beds on the 777-200ER. I dont think any other 772ER has it yet... Perhaps with the new 9V-SVJ it might.

How is it that Tsentsan says that only 1 772ER is equipped with the Spacebed, while Hkgspotter1 says that he has seen 9VSVF and SVH operating the HKGLASvv flights? Does it mean that Spacebeds are not available on some of the LAS flights?

I do not think it is possible that SQ has only 1 dedicated aircraft for that route. My guess is that there are at least 2 772ERs with Spacebeds. Can anyone confirm which are the other aircrafts (besides SVH) with Spacebeds?


There's always a better way to fly...

Its usually SVH lor, cos its specifically placed for that purpose of operating the LAS route.

Its the only 777 I've ever seen that can sit on the Changi ramp for about 2 weeks doing absolutely nothing. From what I've heard, its dedicated to that run. Will confirm it later.

By the way, how is the SIN-HKG-LAS-HKG-SIN route doing?

Tsentsan,

If SVH sits on the ramp doing nothing for 2 weeks, then which aircraft are they using to operate the LAS flights?!  Wink/being sarcastic

Waiting for your confirmation hor...

I think he means sitting around on the ramp at Changi two weeks BEFORE the start of the Las Vegas flights  Big grin

Any idea what date SVJ will be delivered ? Hkgspotter1: I'm sure they will install spacebeds in the "older" SVx-series planes also so you will get all of them eventually. They are getting a lot more SVx series so you'll get more SQ 777s soon enough. SQ doesn't fly here to IAD at all  Sad The777Man
