Hey guys,

Travelling to Asia, coming home from Singapore I have 2 options I want insight about.
I can either tak SQ 12 and fly SIN-NRT-LAX on A388, or take SQ 22 and fly SIN-LAX on A345, I must admit I thought of taking SIN-EWR (longest scheduled commercial flight), but thinking of having to fly US carrier NYC-LAX    . Never been on either A/C and I am flying to Europe first so couldn´t take LAX-SIN and then SIN-NRT-LAX, although I´d love to.

I'd do the A345 on SIN-LAX. A380s will be around for decades, but the A345 nonstops are not going to be around forever.

I did EWR-SIN-EWR. It was a great flight. I assume you are flying business class on both flights. It is nice to be able to eat, get a full night rest and also enjoy the amenities on the flight. However EWR-SIN was much better than SIN-EWR when dealing with jetlag. 18 hours on a plane did not bother me at all.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Take the A340-500... Either way, Singapore Airlines is "A Great Way to Fly."

Since you're flying to Europe first and wanna log the A380, why not fly SQ25 JFK-FRA-SIN then SIN-LAX? If you wanna avoid flying a bad US carrier NYC-LAX if you want to fly SIN-EWR, I might say try VX although I've personally never flown them before but they look like the best choice for that route.


One way I will fly around the world!

HAHA! I love it! A bad US carrier. It sounds like a dominatrix beating the weak low-cost, low-frills airlines. Bad airline, Bad!

I'd rather fly an old Cameroon Airlines 747-300 from JFK-LAX than fly some of the bad US airlines. Bad, Bad, Bad. hahahahahahahaha!

You'll have plenty of chances to fly the A380. Not so for the A340-500 (if you had never flown the a380, but flown the A345 plenty, then my answer would be different).

Secondly, non-stop is more convenient, I would choose the A340-500.

The 743 is tempting ...



WARNING! The post above should be taken with a grain of salt! Furthermore, it may be slightly biased towards A.
