"Before it begins its regular services to Osaka, the 787-10s will be operated on selected Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur flights for crew training purposes, said a statement on Thursday (Feb 8)."

Starting from 3rd April 2018, there will be familiarisation flights using the 787-10, operating SIN-KUL-SIN (SQ118/SQ119).

I tried a dummy booking for the weekend of April, it was around RM 688 return. Contemplating whether or not to try it out even though that's a lot of money to pay for a 1 hour flight, 78J notwithstanding.

To really appreciate the aircraft I think should consider the SIN - BKK sector. Otherwise won't get much out of it.

The flights seem to  be cheaper if you select the A330 flights instead. The previous introductory on the a350s for KUL-SIN-KUL were much cheaper than the 7810s not sure why.

Yes, all the 787 flights carry a premium.

I think it is more a function of the popularity of morning departures to BKK and the SQ118/119 combination. SQ can put old 772s on these flights and still charge high fares due to demand.

You can get that lower by buying a return and with some days stay in BKK.

A friend did a mock booking SIN - BKK at SGD278. Works out around MYR800+.

That fare requires a three night stay or therabouts.

To those thinking about going for a joyride - beware! If SQ has a change of heart and swaps to an A330, Mavcom may not have you covered!

Yes, no guarantees - many of us have experienced equipment changes time and time again...
