How Full Are These SQ Flights?

Sun Jan 05, 2014 8:15 pm

Hi all,

A friend is travelling SQ LHR-SIN-MEL in Feb and is very keen to see how busy/empty the flight is. Could anyone please assist? It is, of course, still sometime away.

SQ321 LHR-SIN
SQ227 SIN-MEL

Thanks very much,

James.

As far as I know, SQ does not overbook, or at least not by much, but I can tell you SQ flights on key routes (e.g. LHR, SYD, HKG, NRT, etc.) are typically full in all cabins.

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):

I recently did a return trip LHR to SIN on SQ 321/322. Both legs on the A388. On both legs the Y cabin had hardly a spare seat at all - so expect it to be full.

SQ322 on the day we traveled home had a small Y section upstairs but they only had singles left by the time we checked in so had to sit downstairs in the main cabin. - but something to watch out for when reserving your seat as I imagine a small upper deck section would be quite pleasant.

Singapore Airlines averages about 80% load factor. While February is high season to Australia, it is low season to Europe. Economy load factors are closer to 70% that time of year, so you might get lucky. However it varies quite a bit between flight to flight, so you could end up 60% full or 100% full on the LHR leg. I'd expect closer to 100% on the MEL leg.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Without actual dates, you can only begin to guess how busy the flights really are...use:

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightAvailability/flightAvailability.do

Away from half term dates, flights I guess would be busy, but not 100% full. Only one way to find out though, and thats to ask when the doors are closed if the flight is full or not.

Quick check on 5 Feb in economy,
LHR-SIN SQ 319 is S/9 Y/9 B/9 E/9 M/4 H/9 W/4 Q/4 N/4 V/4 T/4 U/? G/4 L/4 K/4 ....not too busy?
SIN-MEL SQ 277 S/0 Y/0 B/0 E/0 M/2 H/0 W/0 Q/0 N/0 V/0 T/0 U/? G/4 L/0 K/0 .... sold out?

Actually, looking at other flights/dates, LHR-SIN doesn't seem too busy, but the MEL flights are all very busy.

Durrr, how remiss of me not to post dates. An oversight. It's sorted now, but thanks anyway.
