Without having to reserve propellants for a landing attempt, along with use of an upgraded block 5 second stage, the Falcon 9 was expected to boost the 11,800-pound SES-12 satellite into a "super-synchronous" transfer orbit, an ellipse with a high point of around 36,000 miles and a predicted low point of 182 miles.

SpaceX is switching to a new and improved line of boosters, and so made no effort to recover this one. SES-12 is designed for an operational life of some 15 years. Weather officials said this is from a weak surface front that will be bring west-southwest winds during the launch window.
