This is a bit weird. I don't remember anyone posting the official comment on Airliners.net. This is so weird. It wasn't on singaporeair.com and it was on the SIA Australia website ( I decided to go there as I had nothing better to do ). I am writing to have a word with SIA.
Singapore Airlines To Commence Flights To Chicago
Singapore Airlines commences flights between Singapore and Chicago
O’Hare International Airport on 1 August 2001.
The flights will be operated by new Boeing 777ER long-range aircraft,
via Amsterdam in both directions, with a two-class configuration:
Raffles Class and Economy.
The flights will depart Singapore (SQ36) at 23.35 on Monday, Wednesday
and Friday each week, arriving in Amsterdam at 06.40 the following
morning. The flights then continue to Amsterdam at 8.10, arriving in
Chicago at 10.05 the same day.
The return flights (SQ35) leave Chicago at 7.55pm on Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday, arriving in Amsterdam at 11.00am the next day. The
flights then continue to Singapore, arriving at 7.00am the following day
(7.30am on Saturday departures).
Importantly, for Australian travellers, the services may be utilised by
travellers in Europe for transatlantic flights to Chicago as part of a
round-world itinerary, as Singapore Airlines has traffic rights for
carriage over this sector.
The schedules mean non-stop flights from Amsterdam to the USA daily: 4
per week to Newark, and these new three weekly services to Chicago.
This is in addition to a daily non-stop service from Frankfurt to New
York’s John F Kennedy Airport. It gives double-daily non-stop flights
from continental Europe to the USA across the Atlantic.
Chicago is the fourth city served in the United States by Singapore
Airlines flights. New York is served 11 times weekly via transatlantic
flights from Singapore, and Los Angeles and San Francisco are each
served twice-daily from Singapore across the Pacific. This new service
brings flights between Singapore and the USA to 42 per week.
The new Boeing 777ER aircraft – like all aircraft in the Singapore
Airlines long-haul fleet – will be fitted with the KrisWorld
entertainment system, and will offer passengers the finest choice of
inflight dining, from our selection of World Gourmet Cuisine, and free
French Champagne in both classes.

I'm not his spokesman by the way. I just can't stand your attitude. Why must you deliberately post such rubbish to put his post down? It's just for people's information. I don't particularly find his posting about this fantastic and neither does this news. It's only for people's information.

Give him a break. He's just re-transmitting a press release. Hkgspotter1, won't you the person who was ridiculed for posting about the early arrival of CO's first flight to HKG? I'll repeat what was said in that thread, if you don't care for the subject, either you don't read it (that's what I said) or don't post a followup (and that's what you said in essence). Everyone has his or her own obsession. Don't need to judge others or others' intent.

why must you make such a big fuss out of a news? He was just giving information. By the way, I really appreciate his post because it gave me the news which I wants to know. Well done! Singapore_Air for conveying the news to us who really appreciate your efforts. Besides Johan's rules did not say that "NO POSTING OF AIRLINES' NEW DESTINATION NEWS IN OUR DISCUSSION FORUMS" applies here. So in future, keep in mind that if you do not like any news of SIA or other airlines, just refrain from making such stupid and childish comments. It will only bring you more unfortunate curses from us. Furthermore, it'll save your energy from typing those stupid comments.

I find these flights a little strange. The first is that the flights are only going to be 2-class operations. Will they have the new Raffles Class with Ultimo seats? This will mean that these flights are the only SIA services to Europe or the USA without First Class. I was hoping they would install the Skysuite on the -200ER. Also, it is quite an early departure from Chicago - especially for passengers travelling round the world.
I find SIA.com can be a bit slow in their press releases. You only need to look at Cathay Pacific's press release page and there can sometimes be 3 or 4 in a day whether they be good or bad. Let's hope SIA can copy!
