They have been phasing out the 744's for a while now and are down to under 30 now I believe. More will go when the 773ER's start arriving as SQ (despite owning 49% of them) are going the opposite of VS and prefer 2 engines over 4, purely down to the economics.

Speaking to the IFS on SIN-EWR recently, they don't seem to be overly impressed with the A345's performance and I think that may well get replaced by the 772LR when it becomes available. Again preferring the economics of 2 engines against 4.
