Who flies what into Singapore

Was looking thru a couple of the flight tracking websites and realized that the traffic into Singapore is clustered into a bunch of aircraft types.

This being mainly the 737, 787, 320, 330, 350, 380.

Only Korean Air and possibly Thai Airways bring in a 747 on one of their services. That apart sadly donít see any passenger 747ís coming into SIN anymore, unlike SQ's heyday's when they ran a sizable 747 fleet themselves.

Doubt anyone flies the Airbus A340 into Singapore & thereís the odd 767 that comes in as well. No 757 into Singapore skies for a while as well ?

Turbo-prop traffic would be only the ATR-72-600.

Anyone knows of any other interesting aircraft types that head into Singapore ?

Firefly are working to bring the first commercial flights to Singapore's Selatar airport some time in the next few months. They will be ATR-72s.

They used to fly from Changi to Subang as well in the ATRs but I think that stopped a while back.

If you want to see interesting aircraft types, Selatar is the place to look. They won't be airliners though, they'll be Gulfstreams, Global Expresses, some Falcons... billionaire's paradise and eye candy for us humble folk!

Though technically speaking you shouldn't be seeing at 737 Maxes ....

It seems that Firefly's flights have started (or resumed, depending on how you look at it) almost a week ago: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...207Z/WMSA/WSSL

Any recommendations on plane spotting areas for Seletar? I brunch at seletar aerospace park area off and on but don't recall that area being particularly good for plane spotting (I guess if all planes land from the North East then the best spotting areas would be in Pasir Gudang ...)

How about B777 (various models)?

Also -- various military aircrafts (especially the U.S.) depending on the occasions.

On a related note, i wonder what the loads are like year-round on the SIN - KUL sector ? There seems to be good a number of flights right thru the day, but mostly narrow-body, with the exception of SQ who operate wide bodies on the sector & the odd 5th freedom flights.
Wouldn't more wide body equipment on this route in a way cut down congestion at Changi ?

SIN-KUL is the busiest sector in the world with >100 daily flights
