Possible SIA revamp on the cards
By Yvonne Chan | Posted: 07 February 2013 2353 hrs

SINGAPORE: As the aviation industry continues to be plagued by rising fuel costs and weakness in the global economy, Singapore Airlines has seen its profits being squeezed as more travellers turn to cheaper alternatives.

The airline, which is Asia's second largest by market capitalisation, cautioned on Thursday that loads and yields for its passenger and cargo businesses are expected to remain under pressure.

In an effort to further slash costs, SIA has also recently reduced its cockpit crew.

Competition from gulf carriers and budget airlines has significantly affected the profits of legacy carriers. With costs of jet fuel set to rise even further, analysts say it is imperative for legacy carriers such as SIA to revamp itself, either with new product offerings or new destinations.

"SIA has always done exceptionally well with its offering of premium products... But perhaps it's time for them to re-look the premium economy segment... which is an area where many other competitors are looking at," said Shukor Yusof, an aviation analyst with Standard & Poor's.

"If they were to come up with something that would entice passengers that are currently flying low cost carriers and if they can manage the fares in a way that would attract large numbers on board, then it would work," he said.

Besides SilkAir, SIA has also started its long-haul low-cost offshoot Scoot, in an attempt to glean some profits from the low cost carrier segment.

However some believe SIA should continue to pump money to protect its premium seats segment.

"Their premium sector is what holds them up. They've high yielding passengers and if they try to reduce that, they will lose them to other premium carriers like Cathay, Qantas, (or) Emirates," said Shashank Nigam, CEO of Simpliflying.

"Singapore airlines, while they're part of Star Alliance, they're not very close to their members so certainly after having sold (their) Virgin Atlantic stake, they should be looking at other partnerships to enhance passenger experience," he added.

Besides teaming up with Emirates, competitor Qantas has also announced its intention to form stronger links to the key hubs of Singapore and Hong Kong, paving the way for more head-on competition with SIA.

Analysts say some of these enhancements should include more technology updates to appeal to the well-connected traveller.

So, it's gonna a be a goodbye moment for another SQ historic aircraft?
Are they going to cancel the Singapore-Newark route? Or do they plan to purchase replacement aircraft, such as Boeing 777-200LR for this route?

Slightly off topic, but it could be loosely translated to an Asian man's big phallus. Australian English can be a mixed blessing.

SIA unveils iconic console games
Special Projects Unit | Thu, Feb 14 2013


SINGAPORE - To enhance the entertainment offerings for its customers, Singapore Airlines (SIA) debuts the brand new Red Eye Collection Games on KrisWorld, its award-winning in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.

The 15 iconic console games were previously available only on PlayStation, Windows and iPhone platforms and will now be offered for the first time on an IFE platform.


This represents a significant step up in terms of IFE technology, and adds to more than 80 games currently available on KrisWorld.

Highlights include the multi-award-winning Worms series, which is available exclusively on SIA; Syberia, an Adventure Game of the Year award winner acclaimed for its graphic design and intelligent script; as well as Warm Up!, an F1-style racing game.

The games are currently available on selected Singapore Airlines Airbus A380-800 aircraft and will be made available progressively on all A380s, as well as the A330-300, A340-500 and Boeing 777-300ER fleets.

Would there be any Farewell Party for the Airbus A340-500 when SQ retiring them?

They haven't announced anything yet. But if they do have a farewell party, a ticket on the flight will cost a bomb cos ithe aircraft only has business seats

True!

By the way, is that true that Singapore Airline's Airbus A340-500 used to feature classes other than business?

Initially it had executive economy class seats but due to demand at the time, they were all converted to business class seats
