    Noticed that the aircraft's livery when landing in Sydney has been changed to QANTAS instead of SIA's when it landed. Wonder when they replaced it? Prior take-off? They must have changed it here in Singapore.

    They changed it at Eagle Farm. (Brisbane Int'l)

    After touchdown w/o SQ titles -> http://www.airliners.net/open.file/958532/L/

    After a night in Hangar 3 -> http://www.airliners.net/open.file/958667/L/

    Thanks, philliptan. So, from your post the chronology of events are as follows:
    1. Left Changi without the SIA livery. (Why? Because it arrived at Eagle Farm without any livery, per http://www.airliners.net/open.file/958532/L/ photo.) That would mean that the SIA livery were removed prior take-off from Changi.
    2. Applied the QANTAS livery at Eagle Farm prior take-off.
    3. Arrived Sydney with QANTAS livery.

    Please correct me if I got it all wrong. Pardon the post, as I am interested in the way they changed the livery in such a short period of time.

    Your sequence of events is correct.

    Is it not that difficult to change it, especially since they're only stickers. Peel off, clean and put new one. If you noticed as well, the wingtips were "painted" red in BNE. Not sure if they are stickers or paint.

    Well... Stickers aren't that hard to remove, considering they had almost 4 hours to do it...
