AND ONE DOUBTS THEY'LL BE HIRING BRAZILIAN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS:

Singapore Airlines may buy more Boeing 777s (Bloomberg News, December 10, 2006)

Singapore Airlines said it might buy more Boeing 777 airplanes so it could continue to grow if there were further delays with the Airbus A380 superjumbo jet.

"Boeing 777-300ERs, in our experience, would be a useful alternative to A380s," Chew Choon Seng, the airline's chief executive, said in an interview Saturday. "We could upsize the order if there are further delays with the A380."

Agreed. Of course you want to deal with an experienced manufacturer and what plane manufacturer has more long-term experience with bloody corpses scattered across the landscape because of plane crashes than Boeing?
