Re: SQ A350-900ULR to feature 162 seats

I see how Airbus plans to get 9700nm of range then. I put a bit more though in that. Compared to a standard SIA A350-900 (42/24/187), and if you account for the below weights (which can be refined), you have: For standard LR: 42*100kg per seat = 4200kg 42*130kg per pax+luggage = 5460kg 24*30kg per ...

Re: Singapore Airlines 787-10 Seating

The -10's are all likely going to Scoot, which is already 9ab for its 787's. SQ will increasingly rely on Scoot/Tigerair to scoop up the massive predicted growth in regional budget travel as a couple billion people enter the middle class. SQ has to do this to compete with the increasing penetration...
