SIA 777 To CPH

Tue Dec 05, 2000 2:25 am

Hello,

I received a nice message today that told me
SIA will upgrade their 4 times weekly SIN-CPH flight from a A340 to B777!!!

Are there anyone who knows more about this....
for example if they will use 777-200 or 777-300 or mixed?

This will be the first regular 777 service to CPH : )
But we will don't have any regular A340 service anymore though.... : (

I was at CPH about 3 weeks ago and saw an SQ 340, 9V-SJO. What a BEAUTIFUL aircraft. Still, I'd say a 777 in SQ colours would look very good too.

Well, I suppose you close one chapter and open another. It's sad to see SQ's 340s go, but things change. I'm sure the 777 will work very well on the route and as you say, SQ has the option of changing up to 773s when demand justifies it.

", I suppose you close one chapter and open another. " Good! Whatever boosts their share price!

Does the 773 have range for SIN-CPH??? I dont think it does...

I wonder that too......it had been great with a mix!
Sometimes the -200 and sometimes the -300 had been great. I hope it will be so.

Thanks for your comments.
And if somebody knows more about the upgrade just write!

Don't expect to see the SQ 777-300 at CPH. They will for sure use the 777-200. Rumours are saying that they expect to go daily on CPH within a couple of years - all flights operated with the 777.

BTW Zander you wrote:

What about the SAS A340......

The 773 has a range of around 10000 km,and the 772 has a range of 11-12000 km.Most likely the 772 will be flying to CPH.

The Airbus lovers won´t like you referring to that change as an "upgrade"  .

Hi again Zander

At the moment I will consider it most likely that SQ change from A340 to 777 at the start of the winter-scheduled 2001 - in other words from November 2001.

The first SAS A340 will arrive in July 2001. If my SQ prediction is correct it will be possible to see a SK A340 and SQ A340 side by side in Copenhagen...  

Enjoy your spotting at Copenhagen Zander

I like Airbus very much.......I don't stay at any particular side.
From the source where I saw it, they said the 777 is going to upgrade the CPH route from the now flying A340 service.....don't blame me.

Airbus lover or not, sure it is an upgrade. If not in number of seats, then at least in seat pitch. But my guess will sure be "upgraded number of seats".
And it will be nice finally to see the first 777 at CPH. A very welcome substitute for the soon shrinking number of 767s. We will in any case soon get more than enough 340s to spot.
