I'm currently reading the Boeing PDF file about the 772LR and 773ER found at http://www.boeing.com/news/feature/aa2002/pdf/777LRER.PDF and it says on Page 3 that the 772LR with 301 passengers can fly 18 hours from Singapore to New York.

If the above is true, can the Airbus A345 do the same as well?


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Untill today there is no nonstop service from the US to SIN and I hardly doubt that anybody will try SIN-JFK nonstop! I also hardly doubt that the B772LR can fly 18hrs with full pax and cargo. A nonstop service between LAX or SFO to SIN would be a great deal!
The A340-500 can fly that long but u have to leave some pax and a lot of cargo!

Singapore Airlines will be open the SIN-LAX route when they recieve their A340-500's - It was actually their main reason for byuing the model.

SIN-NYC - looks like it will be weight-restricted for A340-500 according to Airbus.com charts.
SIN-LAX seems to be no problem.

I personally think the SIN-NYC, SIN-LAX and SIN-SFO are limited markets. Most of the money SQ makes comes from the picking up of passengers at the intermediate destinations.

Hi,

Just wondering when you guys talk about non-stop, do you all actually mean non-stop as in no stop for refuelling etc.

If the A345 can fly that long how many pax can it carry ?

THANKS

Cheers,
Herman  Smokin cool

I think that most airbus lovers will have you think that it can fly to the moon and back again without refueling

SIA will configure their A345 aircraft to hold 188 passengers, according to staff newsletter in 1998.

a family friend in SQ says there will be economy class on the A345.

anyway the following is just my opinion. I think they'll make it kind of a premium economy class and charge a couple of hundred dollars extra than the flights with a stop in north asia. Who wants to sit in a cramped seat for 16 hours???

I'd rather be in a 777 non-stop  Smile/happy/getting dizzy More chance of a diversion due to SIA's famous IFSD frequency.

At least on the A345 SQ won't need to be worried about ETOPS problems.

They won't have to worry about ETOPS, but do you want to be four hours from the nearest airfield in case of a fire in the cargo hold?
