Singapore's 777s

Fri Jun 09, 2000 6:41 am

I thought that all of Singapore Airlines' 777-212s were not extended-range, but a quick check of an online database reveals that ALL of them are -212ERs.

If this is not true, then is Singapore expected to get any extended-range 777s?

All of their 200s are 212ERs with RR Trents. In addition they have 777-312s.

Currently, Singapore is receiving -212ER's that have been decertified. This means that although they are -ERs, they aren't certified to carry as much weight (lower landing fees) and the engines are derated to 84,000 lbs. However, it wouldn't take much to recertify these planes and change a few engine control chips, and fly the aircraft long-range. OTOH, Singapore is to begin receiving fully certified -200ERs in the next couple of years.
