I'm on 982/983 shortly and noticed that as of Oct 3, the route is now served by an A333. I was surprised as the Manage Booking was showing 78X quite recently.

Today SQ982/983 done by 787-10. More likely due to maintainance requirement. That why there was a swap for the past few days

For the month of Nov 2018, SQ will only be using A333 for all BKK flights. SQ983 will be using B787 again from 01 Dec 2018.

Actually I do not mind to fly A330. Seat-wise I think "better" compare to 787-10, which has nicer IFE. But I have no issue with A330 IFE

Is it possible the 787-10('s) are going through a rotation program so different pilots/routes/airports/navigation/training can be done before additional -10's join the fleet? Perhaps that explains the volatility in the schedule.
