One of my favorite liveries.

Only one problem...

This is not Singapores first 777-300... in fact they have ordered 12 x 777-300's and have taken delivery of ALL of them.

They do have 19 x 777-300ER on order... this is the first ER to be completed.

I seriously hope that the tail will not remain this way... if it does it will look quite horrible. And I still prefer the "older" smaller fonts found on the B777-300s.

Anyway here's a link... the thumbnail seems to have disappered.

Any idea whether SQ will go ahead and introduce its revamped inflight product on the 77W instead of waiting for the 380? I should think that they will at least consider doing that since CX has just introduced theirs.

New Raffles (and presumably Y) is being launched in the next 3 weeks or so. The new F was being held for the A380, but depending on how bad the latest delays are, SQ may need to rethink this.

Please tell me the B777-300ER gets some sort of F suite in a 1-2-1 configuration. The Sky Suites from the Megatop would be fine.

When they were still expecting to get the first 380's early next year, they were going to fit SkySuites to the first batch of 773ER's to hold the new F cabin back for a flagship launch on the 380. This seems to be fast going out of the window with further delays so I can't see SQ wanting to keep putting SkySuites in the 773ER and then have to refit them again once they launch the new F on the 380. A handful would have been fine.

To say SQ are p*ssed off with Airbus over being denied the opportunity to launch the new F on the 380 is an understatement.

> Pieinthesky, if you carefully read the words of CHANGYOU, you will notice that it sounds like the FC on 773 will be different from the FC on A380... so actually the delay of the A380 might have only caused trouble for what regards the similarities of Y and J.

> Zvezda, I'd rather have a double closing door as in EK instead of a single one. In case of emergency, if the single sliding door is blocked, I can't imagine a wealthy 78 yo billionaire wanting to climb over it to escape (I think EK "walls" are 1.2 - 1.4 m high). Theoretically, with two doors you always get one more chance (as long as you are not too much overweight).

You're absolutely correct Ikarus2006. SQ initial plan was to market the new product on the A380(Flagship) because it is wiser to launch the new product together with the biggest aircraft in the world for more "impact" rather than on an existing design which SQ already have. But due to the uncertain delivery dates and more delayes to come therefore SQ decided to shift it's focus on the B773ER(Workhorse). So it was a big headache for the marketing department crew especially when so much $$$ are dump into advertising the A380. And 1 of the highlights will be the new JCL. And if any of you think Spacebed is good...This will make your jaw drop... Smile.

Thanks for telling me what to read, and I'm sorry to spoil the little fan fest going here, but I think you'll find that the same new F is going in BOTH the A380 and the 773ER.

I repeat what I said earlier. SQ wanted to hold the launch of the new F for a big flagship parade with the first A380 flight(s). They were even prepared to fit SkySuites to the first few 773ER's to 'protect' this big launch of the new F. This was before the last official delay and the new (as yet unannounced) further delay.

I think it's just the service product, rather than the particular route, that's being launched on the 17th.

Will the new F and J classes be retrofitted onto the 744, or will they just leave that as it is?

It must certainly be annoying for SQ to have this happen, but at the end of the day, these things happen with new aircraft and in due course, they'll have their aircraft.

Any word yet on the final pax total for the 773, or presumably we'll have to wait until the new config and product are introduced to see what the final numbers will be?

Knowing SQ, I expect the B747-400s will stay as they are. The seats are not really lagging the competition and the aircraft are being sold off.

No route, the new cabins and IFE will be officially launched on the 17th. At the moment the plan is to send a 773ER to CDG on 1 December for the inaugural I believe.

Their new IFE is called 'eX2' and is supplied by Panasonic Avionics Corporation.

Pieinthesky,

From which sources do you get the info that the F will be exactly the same on both 773 and 380?

As far as I know, surely the layout will not be able to be the same in the FC cabin in the two planes and ,unless some modifications have been done on the model mounted on the 380 to fit it on the 773, it would be hard to fit EXACTLY the same product (for reasons that cannot be disclosed here but are easy to imagine if we think of different window panels, ceiling, overhead bins etc).

Second point, in previous talks about this issue I saw several (singaporeans) stating that there would be actually a difference between the two F in those two planes... I wonder how did they get their feedback and where did you get yours?  eyebrow 

Hey, it's not a war of who gets it right, just curiosity,

Cheers!

I wish they'd hurry up and get the A380 in service. I've been saving my FF miles for a SQ J or F rt to Australia. I was originally planing to go in Feb but want to go on the A380 with new suites so will probably postpone until next October now  Sad Surely they will be operating A380s LHR-SIN-SYD by then!!

F suites in the B777 are normally 1-2-1. Could the same suites be fitted 1-2-2-1 into a WhaleJet? Perhaps by increasing the herringbone angle? That the overhead bins may be different is not really so interesting. I would also expect the aisle width to be different.

Zvezda,

What then if we suppose the design does not allow herringbone layout?

You exactly got my point... aisle width...

Still, I think also window panels are not to be forgotten when we need to integrate a product on two different planes.
For example, if you consider Malaysia Airlines F/C and imagine to move the seat on a different plane, you will have to design a new side-console to fit with the different curvature of the new window panel, so at this point the product is not anymore exactly the same, right?

Looking forward to your opinion.

I haven't flown on Malaysia, but I'm not concerned about details like the curvature of a side-panel. Of course, these will be different. I hope no one thinks that the seats will be part-for-part interchangable down to the last detail. I'm more interested in whether a casual observer will think of them as similar or different. In other words, would a typical passenger go out of his way to fly one over the other? For example, the F suites on UA's B777s and B747s would strike 99% of passengers as similar if not the same. However, one cannot move them between aircraft types. Passengers would not choose one over the other, but they would choose either over the F seats on UA's B767s. Similarly, the Raffles SpaceBeds are not identical between SQ's A340s and B777s, but few passengers notice the difference despite 6" of difference in pitch. SQ F passengers do go out of their way to fly the Megatop because the SkySuites are much nicer than other SQ F products. So, will the new F on the B777-300ERs and the WhaleJets be different only in minor details or will it be an entirely different product?

exactly the point! There are two schools of thought:

1. members like Pieinthesky sustain that the product will be the same on 773 and 380;

2. others like CHANGYOU say the 380 will have something more apparently.

My position is, supposed I had the chance to review the 380 product, I would be a bit skeptical that it could be fit as it is on 773, without changing at least a bit the character and most likely making things a bit tighter on the 773.
Maybe we would end up with the same 340 and 772 situation but then would this be acceptable for F/C passengers?

I guess we will have to wait the 17th to figure it out...

Let's wait next week and see what JP Design achieved with the new 773 B/C and F/C - I am curious. As for the "big singing dancing F for A380", I guess we'd better put our enthusiasm in the freezer and take it out right before October 2007.

If that's true, it would suggest that passengers need an extra incentive to fly on the WhaleJet and would otherwise prefer the B777. I find that dubious as 99% of passengers won't know the difference. The spacing is such that the similar F products could be installed 1-2-1 in the B777 and 1-2-2-1 in the WhaletJet. Of course, SQ installed SkySuites only in their Jumbos, but there were more of them.

Zvezda,

I agree that the passengers in F probably will have an incentive of some sort to fly the A380.

I respectfully disagree about the fact that passengers will not know the difference between the two F products - imagine this > what would happen if on the B777 you would have a 1-2-1 configuration and on the A380 another one then the suggested 1-2-2-1?

I am sure SQ has found a way to attract premium passengers with something very different...

The vast majority of passengers won't care and many won't notice. The same aisle seat is the same aisle seat whether the airliner is configured 1-2-1 or 1-2-2-1.

very nice jet... sometimes I think that SQ should change their livery, but that I realize that it is one of the best ones existing

SQ is one of few airlines who have NEVER had a change of livery.....the current SQ livery is the same as it was when the airline was created some time in the early 70's.... smile

The reason is that the blue/golden livery is really popular amongst fliers.  Smile

Another such example is Air India. AI had changed its livery sometime in the late 80s/early 90s, but there was a huge outcry over this and the airline was forced to revert to the old livery (Palace in the Sky) which is in place even now!!

Not exactly a parallel example.....the current AI livery is actually their fourth livery since inception (if you count the short lived 'rising sun' livery that you refer to above).....in SQ's case, they have had only one livery since their inception..... smile

Agree with you....I'm not at all saying they should change it....just pointing out that they still have the original livery they adopted when the airline was formed.....

I should have phrased it better. I wasn't questioning you. I was just using your post as a reference. lol
