I wonder how is SQ doing on its KHI-LHE-SIN B777 flights. I heard someone tell me that Cathay has currently suspended KHI temporarily and may terminate the route completely from its network. Is that true??

Hiroshima... I thought it is now served as an extension of SQ's Fukuoka 777-200 flight??

Hi,

Arent 9V-SJA and 9V-SJB A340-300s?

SQ does NOT have anyMORE A310-200s! The A310 fleet only consists of A310-300s.

Yes Fukouka is a 777-200 flight not an A310. Just witnessed it last night.

9V-SJA is now B-HXM of Cathay Pacific (A343)
9V-SJB is now B-HXN of Cathay Pacific (A343)

9V-STI, STJ and STK are A310-222's and they are with MEA.

9V-STM and STN are A310-324's and they are with the Belgium Air Force

9V-STU and STS are A310-324's and they are with Air India

9V-STO is a A310-324 and its with Biman

9V-STP is a A310-324 and its with Air Plus Comet.

Not sure about the rest.

KHI747 Cathay Pacific suspended their Karachi service due to the pilots strike as for them quitting the market its not true because according to CX's country manager the airline is doing remarkably well and has exceded whatever target they had set for the first year of service to Pakistan, as for SQ's service Im not sure but will say again Lahore should be served with a seprate flight using the A310 theres more traffic from there than Karachi due to the density of population in Punjab province plus most travellers from the North use Lahore or Islamabad airports when travelling abroad, the Karachi service itself should be extended to Dubai like in the past (747-300 early evening flight, great timing) to break Emirates monotony on the route Smile

It is reported that SQ looked at the A332 long and hard as a A310 replacement, but the aircraft was not what they had in mind. Absolutely nothing wrong with the A332, great plane, but SQ simply decided it was not the right plane for them and the routes it would fly.

The 777 was chosen since it was already in the fleet and SQ decided, I assume, that they could use the extra capacity on most routes and that is was more economical than introducing another type into the fleet.

I am not convinced that, after the A310s are retired, that the 777 will be the smallest aircraft in the SQ fleet for long. Much depends on the future of Silk Air, which flies the lower-capacity routes for SQ. Having a 300 pax jumbo as your smallest aircraft is a bit unusual, but, then again, SQ is not your usual airline.

Rumour has it that SilkAir will be dissolved in 5 years time and that all the A320s will now come under SIA. Then, the smallest aircraft in SIA's fleet will be the A320/319s.

Ive been wondering why SQ needed a subsidiary, infact why does any airline, what purpose does a subsidiary serve that the parent airline cant? it will be great to see the A320s in SQs livery though Smile

Singapore Airlines is leasing out their A310s in recent years, and this marks the beginning of the gradual retirement of the type. The Boeing 777 will be the main replacement, and all A310s are to be gone by 2004.
