Maybe cargo still doing badly and not recover yet.

Yes their CARGO arm still loss making, but should be narrowing. SQ should sell off their 20% stake in Ritz Carlton Singapore and buy a stake in Changi Airport, synergize and diversify. I am sure Temasick and garmen will agree to this. Also another thing to note, their fuel cost is progressively lowered every quarter which is a good sign. 

In my view another way for airliners to gain dominance is to acquire or buy out competitors. What they did with Virgin Aus and Tata is a step in the right direction. 

Many things management can do to increase value for shareholders. Can only hope.

Selling Ritz in exchange for Changi would make a world of sense. Ryanair is already sharing revenues from several airports and SIA could go a step further to ownership, if possible also regional airports.

RE: Singapore Airlines

CEO thoughts and views on SIA's current strategy and new synergies that he sees.

"We used to operate Singapore Airlines to Athens, with a full-service provision. But it wasn't economically viable because there wasn't enough premium traffic. There was a lot of leisure, and visits to friends and relatives, so we dropped the route from Singapore Airlines, and it will be operated by Scoot next year. Scoot is more than 45% lower in terms of unit cost compared to Singapore Airlines and can be profitable on that route."

Changi passenger traffic up 5.7% in first 11 months
30 Dec 2016 09:00
By Nisha Ramchandani
PASSENGER traffic at Changi Airport grew 5.7 per cent to 53 million in the first 11 months of this year, putting the airport on track to post year-on-year growth.
Other metrics such as aircraft movements and cargo traffic for the January-to-November period were also up year on year. Cargo shipments grew 6.1 per cent to 1.79 million tonnes, while aircraft take-offs and landings increased 4.1 per cent to reach 328,520.
Last year, the airport handled a record 55.4 million passengers, with some 5.29 million passengers passing through Singapore in December 2015.
Last month, Changi handled 4.78 million passengers, up 3.2 per cent year on year.
Meanwhile, aircraft movements expanded 3.4 per cent to 29,710 landings and take-offs, while cargo shipments were up 7.9 per cent at 173,170 tonnes.
According to airport operator Changi Airport Group (CAG), passenger traffic in November was bolstered by growth in air travel to and from South-east Asia, North-east Asia and South Asia.
"Among Changi's top 10 country markets, China (13.7 per cent), Vietnam (9.9 per cent) and India (9.8 per cent) led the gainers," said CAG. "As for Changi's top 10 cities, strong traffic growth was observed between Singapore and South-east Asian cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Denpasar, and Ho Chi Minh City."
Next year will see the opening of Terminal 4 (T4), which has already received its temporary occupation permit; the terminal will boost capacity by 16 million annually when it comes onstream in the second half of 2017. Meanwhile, trials will begin from the year-end to ensure operational readiness, such as the testing of airport systems and processes, which will involve live flights.
Against the backdrop of a tight labour market, T4 will adopt a slew of do-it-yourself options and other initiatives such as self-service boarding and a centralised security screening.
In November, more flights out of Changi were mounted - a new service to Kolkata in India by Air India Express.
Jet Airways commenced daily services to Bangalore this month.
Meanwhile, SilkAir has launched four weekly services to Fuzhou, while Xiamen Airlines boosted its frequency between Singapore and Xiamen from 14 times weekly to 17 times weekly.
In addition, Myanmar National Airlines has added frequency to Yangon, taking its service from seven weekly flights to 12 weekly flights as at Dec 1.

RE: Singapore Airlines
Price moved up to 9.95. SIA preparing for "first class" battle with the middle east airliners. First Class moved to upper deck, premium economy take the nose? Seems like a good idea, maybe a bar lounge for first class as it may be at the upper deck away from the rest(social element never before in SIA). Have to wait and see.

Singapore Airlines will reveal its all-new Airbus A380 first class suites mid-year, ahead of their debut on a fresh superjumbo fleet arriving from late 2017.

The Star Alliance member hopes that its launch of the luxe suites – slated for a massive media event to be held in Singapore – will make the airline more appealing to first class flyers in face of competition from Emirates and Etihad Airways.

RE: Singapore Airlines

In December 2016, SIA Group airlines' passenger carriage (measured in revenue passenger kilometres)
increased by 5.3% compared to last year, outpacing growth in capacity (measured in available seat
kilometres) of 4.5%. Passenger load factor (PLF) rose 0.6 percentage points to 82.9%.

Singapore Airlines' PLF improved 0.3 percentage points to 82.4%. Compared to last year, passenger carriage
was 0.5% higher against a marginal 0.1% increase in capacity. PLF improved for East Asia, Americas and
Europe due to stronger demand from year-end holiday travel. However, PLF for South West Pacific declined
as capacity growth outstripped demand, while loads for West Asia and Africa were lower due to softer
passenger demand. The competitive landscape remains challenging and promotional activities will continue in
relevant markets.

SilkAir’s systemwide passenger carriage increased by 14.6%, ahead of capacity growth of 14.1%.
Consequently, PLF increased by 0.4 percentage points to 75.5%. Growth in passenger carriage for East Asia
and Pacific exceeded capacity growth, resulting in a 0.5 percentage point increase in PLF, while in West Asia
demand growth substantially matched sizeable capacity injection.
Scoot’s systemwide passenger carriage grew by 45.0% year-on-year. Capacity expanded by 42.7% as the
number of aircraft increased from nine to twelve. Consequently, PLF improved by 1.4 percentage points to
87.4%. New routes were added to Japan, China, India and Saudi Arabia during the year.
Tigerair’s systemwide passenger carriage increased by 3.4% year-on-year on the back of a 0.9% increase in
capacity. Consequently, PLF improved by 2.1 percentage points to 88.3%. Growth in demand for many
destinations was encouraging during the festive year-end.

Cargo load factor (CLF) was 1.5 percentage points higher, with cargo traffic (measured in freight-tonnekilometres)
increasing 8.8% against overall capacity growth of 6.3%. Healthy growth on cargo traffic was led
by demand on key routes from North Asia to the US and Europe.

RE: Singapore Airlines
With budget type of carriers included into the group and competition, the margin or profit of SIA group will tell the fuller picture.
