Back in April we wrote about Singapore Airlines tentatively planning to deploy a refitted Airbus A380 with the latest 2017 seat products on the daily Singapore – Tokyo Narita route, which recently had its seasonal stint replaced by year-round operation on the superjumbo.

It looked as though deployment of these new cabins was set to start in August 2019, however plans changed and the first refitted aircraft, 9V-SKS, has instead initially supported a second daily connection to Sydney. It will later shift to the Delhi route for a month in August, before moving permanently to serve Mumbai from September 2019.

It looked as though the Tokyo plan was dead, but in a schedule update today the airline has now loaded the A380 Version 3 aircraft type onto the route on a daily basis from 1st January 2020 instead, presumably relying on a later aircraft refit to support the service.
