Somewhat sad news for SQ fans. SIN-MEL A380 replaced by 777 from 26 Oct and only one daily A380 from SYD from 30 May. Is the Australian market suffering a decline?

I suspect its a combination of the Indian market being more attractive now that you can put A380s plus the growth of Scoot (TZ) and the growth of Qantas....

Qantas you say - well yes - the shift of LHR services to DXB means QF has a lot more dedicated seats going into SIN versus what was there when a chunk of seats were taken by people transiting to/from LHR.

So good to see an airline other than QF reducing capacity in this case.

But I agree - not good for people travelling on SQ. On the upside the change has opened up some Krisflyer award availability

Actually I've always enjoyed the equivalent comfort of the A380 in the smaller 777-300ER. The onboard service in SQ's 777-300ER is just as good as what you get on their A380.

Business and Economy are just as good, but this is a tragedy for First passengers, who get downgraded from a suite to a seat.

"Tragedy" is a bit strong.
