We are operating these 2 flights with a leased Boeing 747-400 aircraft
and would like to inform you ahead of time, that there will be some cabin
differences. However, we are pleased to inform you that the product
offerings in all three classes onboard the aircraft are comparable to what we
offer in our own Boeing 747 aircraft.
(SQ285/SQ286 is the SIN/AKL service). Looks like they are shuffling aircraft around a fair bit.
Not long ago the 744 was pulled off AKL due to a/c shortage, and in its place a 2 class 772ER was deployed. But having noted the folly of the change, and yet still dealing with a/c shortage - they decided to lease MH a/c just for that route. The interiors are completely MH - the seat map for the exMH a/c are different from SQ 744s and can be found on singaporeair.com (the fourth 744 map).
I haven't heard of AKL getting the new product but a little bird has hinted at BKK and PVG being next in line...
