The latest schedule update from SilkAir sees an earlier entry date of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 which will start from 05 October 2017 (previous filing was for 29 October 2017). As I have mentioned before, SilkAir is currently in the midst of transitioning from the Airbus A320s to Boeing 737-800s and 737 MAX 8s (which has a smaller seat pitch).
If you do have travel plans to Penang, Kuala Lumpur or Phuket in October 2017, your flight on SilkAir could very well be affected by this change (which is still not 100% confirmed):
