HAN is a great example, one flight on 737 and one on 330, in the future both will be SQ flights.
I still don't really get your approach. If they pull a 737 off a light MI route, then put it on a light SQ route, on the flip side, you'd end up putting a SQ 777/330 on an even lighter MI route, which makes no financial sense.
