Singaporean newspaper Straits Times reports that SQ will reinstate the non stop all business class flights as daily flights between SIN and EWR from Jan 18, 2010.

The direct SIN-LAX will stay as 5 weekly flights.

A good sign that demand is picking up.  Smile

It was reduced from daily to 5 weekly in Feb 2009.

SIN-ORD nonstop would be nice but how is demand? I remember last they flew here it was a 1 stop SIN-BRU-ORD with a 772, i guess that wasnt even good enough.

Really? I thought it was SIN-AMS-ORD and it was suspended right after 9/11.

SQ did SIN-AMS-ORD in 2002 as well, cuz I was on it.

Because there are enough demands for J service. There are also demands for Y but it's low yield and SQ do not want it so all the Y passengers go JFK-FRA-SIN.

On a in my opinion very sub par product in their 744s. I know this probably last for much longer as the 747's get phased out of the SQ fleet, but I still wonder why this route hasn't gone to the 77W as yet?

Sub par? Try flying TATL on a AA 763 or even a UA 744 then talk to me about sub par  Smile

It was certainly through AMS not BRU.

But I'd love to see SQ back here in BRU. Why not as a stop to ORD with a 77W  cheerful

Quoting Flying Belgian (Reply 15):

'Cause AA and UA are already there... SIN-BRU-EWR/IAH would be more likely IMHO, in a code-share with CO on the TATL leg, keeps CO from having to add a second daily to BRU.

Of course, there's that small detail, the SIN-SVO-IAH, but who knows...

(not predicting it will happen, just saying that if SQ returns to BRU as a stop enroute to the US, ORD isn't the likeliest destination)

I would think SIN-BRU-IAD could do very well, if SQ ever codeshared with UA....

Sure does, but it's paid for... if there are any regulations to come, they'd put a price on emissions, not on a flight or a seat mile. Percentage-wise, that would have a smaller impact on J fares than on Y fares.

First of all, I don't think UA operates any 744's TATL. Secondly, the new UA product is fantastic compared to any other US based product. As a matter of fact, I choose UA over LH on TATL for C-Class travel.


25 Swallow : This sector attracts lots of attention. This is partly due to its status as the longest ULH route in the world. I also suspect that a good proportion
26 Bartond : Agreed - this seems like one of the most likely-yet-not-currently-served flights in the entire US-international sector. I am not positive of the econ
27 Globalcabotage : SQ could fill ORD-SIN nonstop or direct via Asia, but UA does not want this as it could impact ORD-HKG-SIN.
28 Asiaflyer : SIN-ORD has probably not high enough yield to make an all J-class A345 flight profitable. SIN-EWR connects two of the major financial hubs in the wor
29 SurfandSnow : 1) UA already flies from ORD to SIN, via HKG.. 2) Even if ORD-SIN was not served in any way, there are MANY U.S.-int'l routes that would be FAR more
