Hi Hakkinen5, all of Singapore Airlines’ older aircraft, namely the A330 and B777-200 are due for a renewal in the next year or so. The B772 is especially old, some are approaching 16 years old! SQ plan to replace these older aircraft with the Boeing 787-10 and the A350-900 regional variant. Both of these feature modern 1-2-1 configuration seating with fully flat beds. Their A330 services to Perth and Adelaide have been replaced with the Boeing 787-10 and A350-900 Regional respectively. So most likely, within the next year we will see SQ retire their A330 and B777-200 aircraft to make way for newer aircraft. Most likely your SQ247/248 upgrade will be to the A350 maybe around October next year.

So far SQ have only replaced one 777-200 service to Perth with a 787-10. The other 3 flights a day remain scheduled with A330s and 777s as far as bookings are available next year.

I'm booked on a United rewards flight on business on SQ248 from WLG to SIN in about 2 weeks. Just received an email notifying me of an aircraft change on the SQ248, went from the 777-200 to "Various aircraft". So perhaps some change is in the works!
