This is quite surprising news. It seemed that SQ starting to make loss on long haul routes as their market began to be encroached by Middle Eastern airlines.

Quote:
Distressed SIA tells analysts: Mayday, mayday, mayday!

You’re more upbeat than we are, says management.
Singapore Airlines’ management slapped analysts with an uncomfortable dose of reality at its recently-concluded post-Q1 results analyst briefing.
According to Mohshin Aziz, Associate Director of Equity Markets (Research) at Maybank Investment Bank, SIA’s management warned that analysts are “more optimistic than the company is” when it comes to the flag carrier’s future prospects.
“Our main takeaway from the briefing is that SIA’s future is grim if it doesn’t change the way it do business. The days of Singapore and SIA being the long-haul hub for the ASEAN region is over,” Aziz said.
In particular, he highlighted that SIA’s long-haul routes have been almost consistently loss-making since FY09 as its competitors have refined their strategy and successfully established themselves into SIA’s markets.
“Regional peers have upped their game and encroached into SIA’s markets whilst the middle-eastern carriers continues to drink up SIA’s milkshake. Long-haul flights are in structural decline, short and medium haul is where the money is,” he noted.
Although SIA’s management remains focused on its premium business, Aziz believes that the flag carrier’s growth strategy is at odds with the increasingly budget-centric profile of Southeast Asian passengers.
"Long-haul flights are in structural decline, short and medium haul is where the money is. SIA’s future is to become a smaller airline than what it is today, can you foresee the management making such step?" Aziz asked.
“We firmly believe that SIA’s management team is among the best there is. But they can’t expect to go against the tide and hope to make it. SIA has to downsize its long-haul operations and cut the loss-making sectors. It should focus on regional and medium haul routes which have proven to be more stable and robust. The reality is SIA is simply oversized at the moment,” he noted.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

But a few weeks ago I also read another article from a more reputable media which said that SQ long haul network are getting encroached by Middle Eastern airlines. On cheaper class there are Emirates and Etihad, on higher caste there is Qatar Airways. Hmm.....

If you don't know the answer, why don't you remain silent?

I know some Indonesians who sees themselves as senior in aviation knowledge has a habit abusing those who have no knowledge of such. And they often do such despicable acts in FB forums.

I never had such abusive treatment in overseas forums.

Sorry to say this, but person like you should know manner a bit, and stop looking down upon persons who have no knowledge in your field.

Where is the abusive treatment? It's not about "knowledge" either.
It's you who abuses this forum as your personal assistant.
Can you honestly say you don't have the "knowledge" to look it up on their website?

  • SEAT WIDTH 18.5in
  • SEAT LENGTH 38in

VERDICT

The leather seat was comfortable, and I found the spaces in two armrests useful for storing small personal items. A good flight, but I would suggest that SIA upgrade its TV to a touchscreen.

  • CONFIGURATION 2-4-2
  • SEAT PITCH 38in/97cm
  • SEAT WIDTH 19.5in/50cm

That's a pretty smart move. I like their strategy with the a350: they go for expansion simultaneously with the right-sizing and replacement of old aircraft on existing routes.

This, I believe, is also a response to SQ's rival's (Cathay) rapid expansion into Europe. The competition is gonna get even more intense with both carriers getting more a350 deliveries.
