I just read a report that SQ will be starting service to Ahmedabad. Is this really true? I don't get why SQ would start 772 service to AMD. If anything they should fly 772 flights to HYD and have Silk Air fly there A320's to AMD.

Singapore initially asked for 3x weekly MI flights to AMD, but I guess there were concerns about the A320 having enough legs to run the flight. Hence it will launch as a 3x weekly 772 from July 28.
Flight times will be very strange though because AMD does not have capacity to handle multiple international arrivals simultaneously, and AI/IC have the prime slots wrapped up around midnight.

Also in case anybody missed it, SQ 421 (daylight BOM flight) is going up from 3x weekly to 5x weekly 772s, SQ 416 (CCU flight) is going up from 2x weekly to 3x weekly 772s and SQ 410 (MAA flight) will be upgraded from 772 to 744 on Fri/Sat.

Does Air India or Indian Airlines offer non-stop services to Singapore at the moment?
Tons, I have travelled often with AI to SIN... AI noinstop from DEL, BLR, HYD, MAA (BOM in my memory NOT), as far as I know, IC from MAA... sure more sestinatioina, but Internet here at present to slow to research
SIN seems to be a very important and profit making market for AI... how are load-factors? With me, they were always quite good...
