It has nothing to do with realizing anything - its simply a matter of aircraft routing.
737s are being highly utilized out in the Pacific and with growing opportunities as the Japan market returns, so the desire is not to lose two daily on pmUA HKG tag flying. So choice was to either upgauge the SIN or SGN tag with US origin aircraft to free a 737.
Ultimately, there will be further shake outs in the intra-Pacific network, and I can see HKG-SIN being dropped completely.
From the desert to the sea, to all of Southern California

Finally, this was a surprise to me when it was downgauged, glad to see UA giving the SIN market a better premium cabin from HKG, I expect comments from frequent fliers had something to do with it, to what extent I'm not sure. People take the time to complain much more than comment positively, that's why companies don't have compliment departments.
