Singapore Airlines aircraft change

A much anticipated announcement from Singapore Airlines recently was that they will be swapping their old Boeing 777-200's for new Airbus A350- 900's on their Wellington-->Melbourne-->Singapore route from 1 November 2019.

Passengers will notice a major improvement with the new aircraft type have a modern business class cabin and the introduction of a premium economy cabin. I imagine it will be a nicer ride for economy passengers also.

The last [and first] time an Airbus A350 operated into Wellington were trials by Airbus themselves, back in June 2018 [details here].

Today's photos are of Sunday's departure from Wellington, the aircraft being Boeing 777-212/ER, 9V-SQL. I can't say I'll miss these old B777's. They really are showing their age and it's always nice to have something a little newer appear.
