Re: Can Singapore Airlines Start SIN-YVR With 787-10 or does it need A350-900 like YVR-SEA

AFAIK, the 787-10 is more of a regional workhorse for SQ while the A359 is the designated long range plane. I don't think it operates any routes outside Australasia. If YVR gets added, I'd assume that'd be an A359 as well.
