First 787-10 Dreamliner Commercial Route Announced!

Singapore Airlines, the launch customer of the 787-10 Dreamliner, has announced the first long haul route in which the longest variety of the 787 Dreamliner series will operate. SIA will start deliveries of the 787-10 Dreamliner late-March for an early April inaugural service to KLIA & BKK.

Before this, Singapore Airlines will operate the shorthaul 787-10 flights to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bangkok, Thailand for flight crew training purposes. I’m very much looking forward to see which other routes SIA will put the 787-10s on, hopefully SIN - MEL!

Starting 3rd May 2018, SIA will have its first inaugural flight of the 787-10 to one of Japan’s largest cities, Osaka Kansai. This will be a 6h 45 min flight across the Asian continent.

Seems very exciting! It’ll be nice to finally be able to realistically fly the 78J in IF. This is the start of many!


Nice! I’ll fly this in IF after school.

Pretty surprised that Jakarta isn’t on the list. As Jakarta was listed as one of the first destinations to get their A350s alongside KL. Oh well, maybe I have to see more old 772s serving this route abit longer I guess 🙁

I was about to look for a flight served by 78J if Jakarta would make to the list during SQTF this February.

Just noticed their configuration, 36 Business with 301 Economy? That’s a huge improvement in terms of capacity compared to their current 772s and A330s


Anyway, I just found out about the seating configuration. So the seating will be :

  • 36 Stelia Business Seats in 1-2-1
  • 301 Recaro Economy Seats in 3-3-3 (Painful, I know)
  • These 301 Economy Seats includes Extra Legroom. But no Premium Economy on this 787

Really weird. Looks more like US domestic instead of international flights. Maybe they’re focusing back on the southeast Asian market and 772/773 reflection


Singapore – Kuala Lumpur 03APR18 – 31MAY18 SQ118/119

Big aircraft for such a short flight

Temporary for flight training purposes - It’s a norm for airlines with new aircraft :)
