Why Did SQ Supersize Their Logo On A345?

Sun Jun 13, 2004 4:20 am

Attention to detail...I know but i've been trying to figure out why the SQ logo on the A345 engines is larger and centered on the engines unlike the rest of the fleet where its smaller and more forward towards the intake. I think it just looks kinda tacky on the A345 to have that...but is there an actual reason why they did it???

Because they couldn't resist McDonald's. Others prefers to BiggieSize things instead.

Maybe they wanted to cover up more of the engine to take away more of that Euro-White look to impress us A.netters.

"to impress us A.netters."

Wouldn't suprise me, they've got an ad in the May/June 2004 issue of Airliners.  Big thumbs up

Honestly couldn't tell you why they did what they did. Sorry.

I have no idea for the reasoning behind the larger logo, but I do think it looks rather good.

You know, airlines have been known to occasionally change something in their color scheme and then to apply it to one (or more) planes, just to see how it looks and how people react to it.

If they get positive reactions out of this then I wouldn't be surprised to see the next Boeings arriving in SIN to feature that larger logo as well... if the feedback is negative, they'll go back to the smaller version, and the A345s will be changed to the normal size at some point...

I really have to admit - I'd've never noticed that difference...

By the way guys, SQ has removed the leadership stickers of the A345s.

The A380 needs something better than 'Leadership', it shouldn't have to share or wear a name of any other mere aircraft, it should be unique.

I would vote for MOTHERSHIP!
