I think I read somewhere on here that the Silkair birds also have extra modifications in terms of the flight deck and extra tools available

I always thought the difference was the in-seat power supply...
The YF series don’t have any overhead stowages for rafts in the ceilings, it’s a continuous strip of sky interior lighting from front to back. Pre-covid it was only ever aircraft in the YI blocks that did the Pacific/NZ/Bali flying.

Most of the YI aircraft have in-seat power, but not all. I was on YIJ recently and there were no charging ports.

Some great tools yes, but they also left out some handy options with the FMC. Overall though they’re exactly the same. Pretty much every one of their “optional extras” has been deactivated.
