SQ744 In DUB

Tue Oct 30, 2007 11:19 am

Last week (October 20th), I noticed a Singapore 744 on the apron in Dublin. I figured that SQ must have started service to or from DUB rather recently, since I hadn't heard anythong about it yet. Wehen I checked in the SQ website however, I could not find an indication that SQ flies to DUB at all.

Does anybody know whether SQ actually flies to DUB or not? And if they don't, what was one of their 744s doing there?

99% sure they don't.

Diversion I'd guess, probably their JFK-FRA flight.

They operate a cargo flight to Zurich (I think it's Zurich anyway). But it;s definetley not a scheduled passenger flight. Could be a diversion, although diversions usually land at Shannon.

I didn't think of that one. I assumed the OP refered to a 744 passenger.

On Saturday there is a 744F from SHJ. IIRC, it goes to CPH from DUB. I think there are 3 freighters/week in/out of DUB.

SQ7191 29-Oct-07 31-Oct-07 1 - - - - - - DUB SIN 01:25 00:30+1 74Y Via SHJ
SQ7353 29-Oct-07 30-Mar-08 - - - - - 6 - DUB SIN 11:55 12:30+1 74Y Via CPH
SQ7355 28-Oct-07 29-Mar-08 - - 3 - - - - DUB SIN 14:25 17:35+1 74Y Via CPH,SHJ
Fly fast, live slow

As PhilSquares said in Reply #5, SQ operate three scheduled cargo flights per week into DUB. They have been running this service for a few years now, operating via Copenhagen/Sharjah.
Haven't we been here before ?

Alas, I completely forgot about the cargo aircraft. I was pretty far away and couldn't have told for sure whether it was a passenger aircraft or not. I didn't even consider any other option.

Well, then that probably explains it. Thanks so much!
