Question EK404 departure time ex-SIN?

Hi everyone,
I thought that since October last year, the departure time of EK404 ex-SIN was shifted from a night departure to a mid-afternoon departure.
However, right now it seems that for the month of May, it shifted back to a night departure for an overnight flight to MEL.
I am booked on EK404 in Feb next year and currently my flight is still showing the mid-afternoon departure for slightly after midnight arrival in MEL.
Should I expect that there will be a timetable change for my EK404 next year?
I would much rather leave SIN mid-afternoon.
Cheers, Gerald

I noticed the same thing, but not booked yet. When I make a dummy booking it shows the mid-afternoon departure. If I search on flight schedules it shows a night flight. Anyone knows which departure is the most likely one? Any chance there will be a change of equipment from 777 to 380?

Im booked on this flight in September, and my booking was for originally for 15:35 which is still the case on the booking page, however the schedules search is showing 13:55 so we'll see what will happen....

It looks like from 31 May onward, EK 404 departs SIN at 15.35.
And from the end of Sept as the Southern Hemisphere transitions into daylight saving, the departure time ex-SIN shifts to 13.55.
My own EK 404 (QF8404) for Feb 2020 is still showing the 13.55 departure ex-SIN.
Hope that it stays a mid-afternoon departure and not shift back to the 22.40 former departure time.
Would be nice if it gets switched back to A380 again.
