SQ 757 And 737

Mon May 28, 2001 9:58 am

Does anybody have any pictures of the old SQ 757 and 737?

It seems to me that these two types were not with SQ anymore. Any idea where they went?

I remembered taking 1 flight in 1989 from CGK to SIN with the 757. It was really nice though.

Delta operates a few of the former SQ 757s. DL operates N750AT, N751AT, N752AT, and N757AT, all former ATA aircraft as well.

I don't think SQ ever operated a B737. In 1986, I was fortunate to travel on a SQ B757 from Singapore to Bangkok and return. Great aircraft and great flight.

I believe I saw SQ B737, in addition to its B727 aircraft on its South East Asian regional countries routings like Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore and remember quite clearly that this type of aircraft took off during the late years of 1970s, but lost track after that. I don't know where the 737 all went.

I once took a flight in 1980 from Jakarta to Singapore on a B727 flight.

SQFFP:

DeltaAirlines is right abt the planes - however, that was ALL the B757s that SQ ever operated. For the regord, their former regn was 9V-SGL (now N750AT), 9V-SGK (N751AT), 9V-SGN (N752AT) and 9V-SGM (N757AT).

And as for Zizou's comments, well, SQ's actually DID operate some B737s (in the early-mid 70s I think) - they inherited some B737-100s and -200s when SIA was formed with the split of MSA (Malaysia-Singapore Airlines) in 1972. But, they've only used is for a couple of years before disposing them and "standardising" on B747s and B707s then, with DC-10s and B727s to follow later.

I've got the above information from Bill Harms excellent airliner census web site - check it out at http://www.bird.ch/bharms/asr_sh00.htm
Look under Boeing 757s and Boeing 737-100/200 - you could see some ex-SQ aircraft (FYI, SQ's Boeing cust. id/number or whatever you called it was 12, so any Boeing aircraft with -x12 was ordered/made direct for SQ. e.g. B747-412, B757-212, B737-112, B737-212, B777-212 etc.

Cheers!

Is that sad that nobody has any of SQ 757 and 737 pictures?

I apologize for my misdirected comments and furthermore I reiterate SQFFP remarks and it is dissapointing that there is no SQ 757 pics

SQ also operated a sole 737-300 freighter in the early 90's. Its registration was 9V-SQZ.

I was surprised SQ only fly the 757-200 for a few years.

The 752 could have been the perfect plane for the SIN-KUL shuttle flights, unless SQ deemed the plane to not have enough seating capacity to be competitive.

I believe I'm correct in saying SQ inherited 5 737-112s from MSA.

9V BBC 19769 went to Air Florida 5/79
9V BBE 19771 " " " " 8/80
9V BFD 19768 " " " " 10/79
9V BFE 19770 " " " " 6/79
9V BFF 19772 " " " " 8/80

All these found their way to other operators after Air Florida of course, and one crashed with COPA Panama.

9V BCR was a -212 and went to Malaysian after MSA split up, and went to Frontier almost immediately. So SQ never operated a 737-212.

Malaysian started up with a fleet of 7 (I think) new series 2H6s.

There are actually some photos of Singapore B737's on Airliners.net:

Here is a new one sitting on the ramp at Boeing:
