According to the Houston Spotters site

Traffic for SQs SIN-DME-IAH is improving nicely...

"Singapore Airlines saw an increase of 47.22%. They deplaned 4046 pax and enplaned 3751 pax. Load factors were 73% to IAH and 67% from IAH.

For the year traffic on Singapore Airlines was up by 54%."

Could they be finally starting to get some traction in Y? If they are filling up front and down below...70% is profitable...

On a side note....both QR and EK IAHs routes are in the avg 90% LF....almost time for more frequencies for these 2?
"Qatar Airways deplaned 6545 pax and enplaned 7230 pax. Load factors were 82% to IAH and 90% from IAH.
Emirates had a 12.8% increase. They deplaned 7466 pax and enplaned 7821 pax. Load factors were 91% to IAH and 95% from IAH"


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Great to see loads improving for SQ!

I might sound stupid but I want to ask a question. Does deplane means how many passenger the airlines drop at IAH while enplane means how many passengers board the airline's equipment at IAH?



One way I will fly around the world!

Wow! Past due for another flight. I think it would be to QR/EK's advantage to be 1st with 2X/day. For that would allow better hubbing connections.

I'm impressed with QR's numbers. They have really pulled them up and reduced EK's 'first mover advantage.' Of course, now the question is yeild. But any LF above 85% implies the ability to increase RASM.

Either that or the plane is filling up with people.   

Now being serious: Why the imbalance in load factors? Are the energy companies sending out staff (manning up or seasonal)? Or is the return often via Europe?

The higher yield seats might have return journeys with a stop at Shell HQ in AMS for example...over on EK ..back on KL. The oil companies don't care.

I know my brother who works for an oil company...if there are no J class on the non-stop return for example...he has the choice to stay till there is one or come back via a connecting city that has J available.

I don't believe they're getting any additional SIN/DME traffic, so it's mostly beyond SIN traffic like CGK/SGN/KUL

This is good news for IAH. I am always surprised to find out how few people seem to use SQ to Moscow. It truly seems as if everyone is heading to SE Asia instead. I wonder with CO's move to Star if SQ would be better off to offer a daily service via an Asian city instead, such as IAH-TPE-SIN

or IAH-BAH/KWI-SIN

DME does help fill those F seats though

For which period was this figure for, and to which period was it compared with?

If its was for recent monthly figures, that would be really good numbers when you consider that SQ only just added a fifth weekly flight in December 2009?

Not sure if it was transit flights beyond SIN, but DME-SIN apparently does so well, they dropped the routes via DXB and just flew non-stop there.



It's huaiwei...not huawei. I have nothing to do with the PRC! :)

You can check the pax numbers each month via www.fly2houston.com you just have to click over to the stats page. You can see cargo and pax numbers for each airline. For the random months I pulled it seems DME is about 20% of the IAH market for SQ.

Anecdotedly, I've spoken with folks at the Russian Consulate in Houston, and I know the flight is VERY popular with them and their business ties in Houston (which are growing, as is the Russian pop). NASA uses the flight to DME weekly, often to link up Mission Control in Houston and Russian facilities outside Moscow.

Is CO going to codeshare on this flight now?

I like this idea, maybe 2x a day service from SQ such as:

SIN-DME-IAH-ICN-SIN and SIN-ICN-IAH-DME-SIN

An extra Jumbo each day for IAH maybe a morning arrival for the barren Terminal D and another Asian destination. A win-win for everyone. Would be even better if CO and SQ were code-sharing.
