Very nice feature request! I didn’t know that scoot or tiger air where Singapore airlines, I wonder why they don’t just operate both of their LCC under 1 brand

If the A350 gets added this is a must no matter what. SIA has been very supportive of the A350 and has many orders, it is simply a must, sadly I am all out of votes :(

I have to agree with you! I think SIA livery is a must-have if A350 gets added to Infinite Flight ❤✈ (Not to mention that they have a big orders for A350-900 and also the Launch customer of ULR variant ❤)

I wonder what will happen to Tigerair Australia…
Anyway, how was this livery not requested before? It would be great to have in an A350 release.

As mentioned previously this is one of the nicest feature requests I have seen. It is very evident you put time into making an interesting and top notch request with great attention to detail. I would love to see Singapore Airlines’s livery included once we get the a350.

Thanks Kevin for the praise, I do hope this livery gets added someday 😊


@anon31652286 Thanks Ed for the praise, the previous topic was closed and I decided to make a new one 😄


@Aussie_Wombat Yup! I do hope A350 will be the next with A330 Rework after MD-11/DC-10 and CRJ Rework 😊

I Still don’t understand why the devs say that this is a new plane and it is not enough info about it?? Well, look att b787? It’s new and yet they have implimented it? Whats up?

Instead of discussing that matter here, i’ll shoot you a PM so we talk about it over there, okay? :)

I know we won’t be getting the a350 in IF anytime soon, but this is a must for when it’s added.

I am doing a 3 page essay on any topic and I chose the A350. Lots of info to write about! This won’t come around anytime soon but I do hope this Aircraft is added!

I do like this request very much, but here are some problems.

  1. The Devs have alot on their hands comcerning the CRJ rework and have alot planned in advance, and this would take a while.

  2. Not a lot of us know much about the A350, and if you say “But the Devs made the 787 rework and it’s new!”, the Boeing 787 was known since 2009, and this came up very recently, so it would take a while to research the A350.

I know these seem like weak arguments, but they’re valid.

Besides, I ran out of votes decades ago.

Whats up? The CRJ rework. The Devs have been doing this for quite awhile because they want for us to enjoy it, and appreciate it. And I know that you may be impatient, and so are quite a few of us. But keep quiet and it’ll be out in no time. Then they’ll get to this eventually, and then the next thing. It’s a one step at a time process bro.
