Re: Why do smaller variants have more range then larger variants?

The smaller variants usually have similar MTOW to the larger ones. With less payload they can carry more fuel.

Re: Singapore Airlines 777-9 potential routes?

779 doesn't have the range needed for ULH routes like SIN-JFK/EWR/LAX. Capacity and range-wise, the aircraft will be the best replacement for 77W and A380.
