Am I stupid for not knowing that Singapore airlines operates 777s? I swear that this is the first time I’ve seen one

I mean, they fly it to a host of big European cities but not Amsterdam.

Might as well start exploring IF a little more:

Love catching the American arrivals, it adds some nice variety

They are about to be retired though… replaced by the -9s. The -200 was already replaced by the A350. The -300ERs are the oldest in SIA’s fleet.

Which is incredible when this particular aircraft is only 8 years old

That’s actually the 3rd youngest one on their fleet. The bulk of the fleet is 15-17 years old.

Wow 🤩. I really like this livery. It would look great on an A350, actually. Nice shots.

It’s always been a really nice livery, I think it would fit pretty well on any aircraft. Simple, but effective

These are so crisp 🥹

32.5MP sensor + 200mm lens = crispier than crisps 😍

There’s been a total of 89 B777 in their fleet, past and present. By airframes, they are the third largest operator of the type, only behind Emirates and United. Their B777 typically operate high demand long haul routes to Europe and North America, and high demand, high premium cabin traffic within Asia and Oceania.

Clean shots as always, stick to WRC legends, I’d love to see more of those.

Nice pictures!!

They used to supplement the 747 fleet a few years back.
