Re: Can Singapore Airlines Start SIN-YVR With 787-10 or does it need A350-900 like YVR-SEA

The B787-10 can fly 11.5-12 hours maximum with a full payload. Its current longest scheduled flights in S19 and in S20 are TLV-EWR on UA and AMS-SFO on KL. SIN-SEA is 14 hours 40 minutes block time so unfortunately the B781 cannot operate this route nonstop. *78X Actually, if you want to get really...

I think this comes down to the fact that QF brought down their intended size over this rou...
