I suppose it will take after the previous A345's practice of doing Jkt-Sin-Jkt in-between its primary missions, chiefly for the pilots to put in more rotations and also to utilize the plane more as otherwise it would be on the ground for many hours everyday. And like previously, discounted tickets won't be valid on these short hops.
I thought that was primarily so the pilots would have sufficient number of takeoffs/landings or whatever on the type. That shouldn’t be an issue for the ULR, as I assume SQ will use the same pilot pool as all the other A350s in the fleet. The A345 was a unique type for SQ.
