    I'm a bit curious as to why SIA did not put the passengers into hotels which had empty rooms like the St Regis, Raffles Hotel etc etc

    the report stated the hotels were fully filled for the airshow... i wondered how true ? anyway.. the station manager will be the one highly stressed from such incident.

    although it is a cheap budget hotel but at least it is comfortable enough to sleep 1-2 nights... better than airport lobby sofa

    maybe they had a standard protocol to follow even choosing hotels.

    A380 with only 70 passengers??

    maybe just delaying tactic to wait for some more passengers

    read the report again:

    Given the Singapore Air's second A380 was undergoing maintenance, Mr Forshaw said the flight had to be replaced with a Boeing 747-400.

    "Obviously, a 747-400 can't carry as many passengers as an A380, so we've had to transfer around 70 passengers to alternative flights today,'' he confirmed via an email.

    There is only one other A380 and it was undergoing maintenance at that time I believe.

    The 747-400 MEGATOP which most passengers were transfered to is actually a backup plane.

    The 70 passsengers are spillovers because they could not get into the 747-400.
