Also of interesting note while taxiing in Bangkok, the a/c hit a hanger with its wing tip fence on a hanger suffering minor damage during ground procedures. The left fence was damaged. After an inspection the fences were removed from both sides and the aircraft went on its way.
I had no idea they could be removed so easily. Aircraft with blended winglets would have to undergo a major MRO level repair to remove them.
SIA is expecting its first comercial flight to be on October 28th and all the tickets will be put up for auction with procedes going to charity.
