Given a choice between a 73NG and a SQ 777-----you bet on which i would go?
Karan, as an aviation aficionado your choice may be something different from what the 'aam janta' will choose. For instance I'm planning to fly a Russian/ CIS airline/airliner for my next European trip just for the experience (Maybe even Syrianair for the 747SP experience).
Believe me if the PRICE is right, people will choose the 73NG - irrespective of narrowbody, lower standard IFE (none at all in the present scenario unless 9Ws female f/a's decide on shorter skirts) etc. over and above SQ
Moreover a significant share of SQ
's traffic is 6th freedom beyond SIN
to USA / Oz and Far East. Until 9W
either has widespread network to these regions or has reasonable SPAs with airlines in the region for points beyond SIN
, they are going to be picking up a far higher proportion of 3/4th freedom traffic to/from SIN
per flight than SQ
