SQ 777-200/200ER Registration

Fri Apr 23, 2004 11:19 am

Don't know if anyone notices this technicality, maybe its just an eye I have for something like this!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy , but can anyone confirm if I am correct on the fact that if the aircraft is a 777-200ER that the registration starts with 9V-SV_ and that if the aircraft is NOT an ER 777 the registration starts with 9V-S_ _ (usually Q or R after the S).

Do many other airlines do similar registration patterns with their various models of the same type of aircraft, such as ER or non-ER?

Much appreciated.

Hate to break this to you, but all of SQ's 772s are Extended Range models  Big grin

Thanks ConcordeBoy,

For some reason the SQ website in their fleet section lists two different types of 777's, making it look like they have the "ER" and "non-ER" type. I do notice that when they fly to Europe or North America all the planes have the 9V-SV_ reg. (never seen a 9V-SQ or SR reg. outside of Asia-Pac).

That lead me to think that they registered all their ER's differently from the non ER's...

That question has been bugging me a while! Thanks for clearing that up.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

To clear up what CB has mentioned, all SQ 772s are delivered as ERs. However, once they reach Singapore, the SQx and SRx aircraft have their engine management systems modified so that they have less thrust on their engines (92000 derated to 84000), and hence, are known to SQ as non-ER. The SVx dont have this modification I think, and SQ brands them as ER to denote their more spacious interior.

I think Ejazz & CB should be able to correct/verify what I've mentioned...

You have it right.

Only thing is... engine rating doesnt really change the aircrafts' technical designation. So long as the planes retain their center fuel tanks (and therefore basically equal fuel capacity to the -SV* series) they remain -ERs, despite whatever SQ chooses to refer to them as  Big grin

B777-200 9V-SQ_ (PJY config)
B777-200A 9V-SR_ (JY config)
B777-300 9V-SY_ (PJY config)
B777-200ER 9V-SV_ (JY config)

Another differrence is the passenger config in each aircraft type n galley loading plans, I have no idea on any technical stuff besides that all of SQ's B777 are ERs..hope this helps

Ah, looks like I've learnt something new too, since I thought the SQ*/SR* were non-ERs.

Thanks for the info.

B777-300 9V-SY_ (PJY config)


These aircraft are used to fly around the region from intra-Asian hops to Aussie and Middle East routes. Depending on the need for First Class (PCL), some routes don't need them at all. For instance the Brisbane & Adelaide sectors see the 9V-SR_ almost all the time. Whereas the sector to Jakarta interchanges between 9V-SQ_ and 9V-SY_, presumably there is a demand for PCL.

Hmm... I think it works something like that.
