With SQ's IAH-DME-SIN service a little more than 2 months out, I was wondering how the bookings are looking? (assuming the flights are bookable this far out, which seems to me that the should be ). I know some of you guys live for looking up this info, so go get it.

Wow. I was going to tell you that you were way off base, and that SQ did not and has no plans to serve IAH, until I saw ...



I cannot believe I had no idea that SQ would be serving IAH. I assume this is somewhat decent competition for EK.

Great news for Houston and Texas. Still, as a DFW local, it's still sad to see DFW lose yet another international carrier to IAH.



"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Yup this announcement was the big buzz on 13Dec07 right on the heels of EK IAH-DXB nonstop and their elaborate party at the Juice Box (Minute Maid Park). Many were surprised of the IAH-DME-SIN routing 4x on the 773ER! I mentioned on the IAH spotters group that the usual IAH vs DFW banter was rather quiet and yours is the first one I have read. Thank you for the subdued support!

First flight into IAH: Tuesday 20 March 2008

From the SQ News Release:

SINGAPORE AIRLINES TO LAUNCH FLIGHT FROM HOUSTON TO MOSCOW, SINGAPORE
Lone Star State Will Be Carrier’s Sixth North American Gateway



LOS ANGELES, December 13, 2007 – Singapore Airlines has announced the launch of four, weekly nonstop flights from Houston to Moscow, with continuing service to Singapore, beginning March 20, 2008. Houston becomes the sixth gateway in the carrier’s North American network, which includes Los Angeles, San Francisco, Newark, New York (JFK) and Vancouver.

Singapore Airlines flight SQ 61 will depart from Terminal D at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) at 11:55 p.m. each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, arriving at Domodedovo International Airport (DME) in Moscow at 7:10 p.m. the next day.

After a brief layover, the flight continues to Singapore, departing Domodedovo International Airport at 8:25 p.m., and arrives at Changi International Airport at 11:30 a.m. the following day.

On the return leg, flights departing Singapore (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 09:45 a.m.) offer the convenience of same-day arrivals in Houston (10:20 p.m.).

The carrier will operate its newest Boeing 777-300 Extended Range aircraft on the route in a three-class configuration (8 First Class, 42 Business Class and 228 Economy Class seats).

Flight Connects Houston and Moscow, Singapore for First Time

The new Singapore Airlines flight will become the first-ever nonstop service connecting Houston and Moscow. It provides convenient new travel options for the oil, natural gas and corporate markets to Russia, as well as a convenient link to the carrier’s extensive network of flight connections throughout Asia for corporate and leisure travelers alike.

World’s Most Awarded Airline Raises the Bar on Luxury Flying in Texas

“We know that Texans appreciate luxury, service and quality, so it seems only fitting to launch our new Houston flights with the world’s largest First Class and Business Class product,” said Mr. W.K. Lim, regional vice president Americas for Singapore Airlines, referencing seats up to 35 inches wide on the carrier’s new Boeing 777 aircraft. “We’re very pleased to bring one of the world’s newest and most elegant airline experiences to the Houston market.”

Named “World’s Best International Route Airline” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine for 19 of the past 20 years, Singapore Airlines is world-renowned for innovation and attentive inflight service.

Singapore Airlines’ new First Class includes 35-inch wide seats converting to 180-degree, flat beds, complete with the airline’s famous turndown service featuring oversized down duvets, pillows and tailored sleep suits from Givenchy. Noise-cancelling headphones and a 23-inch digital monitor give access to more than 1,000 on-demand entertainment options.

The carrier’s new Business Class seat – the largest in aviation history – converts to a 180-degree, flat bed and features a spacious 1-2-1 Business Class configuration, providing direct aisle access from every seat.

The new flight will also feature Singapore Airlines’ recently launched Economy Class, offering wider seats, greater seat recline, and 10.6-inch digital video monitors at every seat for access to the award-winning KrisWorld on-demand entertainment system.

On-line reservations will be available as of Jan04,2008.

Not sure about how true these numbers are....

An ex-girlfriend was a travel agent and she tried and tried to get me up to speed what the figures, like the ones above, meant, with little success. So can someone dumb these down for me.

There are 4 seats or more than 4 seats available in New First Class. Of these, 4 or more than 4 are available in the fare buckets F, P or A.*

There are 4 seats or more than 4 seats available in New Business Class. Of these, 4 or more than 4 are available in the fare buckets Z, C and D. There are no seats available in the J fare bucket.*

There are 9 seats or more than 9 seats available in New Economy Class. Of these, 9 or more than 9 are available in the fare buckets Y, B, W, Q, N, V, S, E, M, H, L and K.*

* F4, P4, A4 doesn't mean that there are necessarily 12 seats in New First Class available. It means that there are four or more seats available in the whole of New First Class and of those, 4 or more could be in the F fare bucket, 4 or more could be in the P fare bucket and 4 or more could be in the A fare bucket.


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.
