As far as I know Singapore Airlines have always had traffic rights on the Manchester-Brussels route, as well as from Manchester to Amsterdam, Paris, Zuich, Istanbul and Mumbai - which are all stops, or perviously were, on the Manchester-Singapore route...

Hi Sabena 690,
My logic was that at some point in the month or so, I have to travel to BRU (preferably from MAN) and after reading this thread, I thought it might be a nice change to try SQ, as I've never flown with them. You're right though - the scheduling makes it almost not worth it, but I thought it might be fun!

Days of operation are based on departure from Singapore and Manchester, so the days the flight operates via each destination aren't always the same for outbound and inbound. This may be a factor in having trouble booking flights on these sectors. Also never noticed they fly CDG-MAN but not MAN-CDG!!!
They are as follows:
MAN-BRU ___ WED/FRI/SUN
BRU-MAN ___ TUE/THU/SAT
MAN-ZRH ___ MON/TUE
ZRH-MAN ___ MON
CDG-MAN ___ WED
MAN-BOM ___ THU/SAT
BOM-MAN ___ FRI/SUN

Two of the SQ flights to MAN operate SIN-BOM-MAN and they turnaround as MAN-BRU-SIN, and another two operate SIN-BRU-MAN and they return MAN-BOM-SIN. SQ does this to ensure that the BOM-SIN sector is served daily.... BOM is now served 5x/week turnaround, and the remaining two weekly flights operate as a stopover en route to/from MAN. If the SIN-BOM-MAN flights were to turnaround and operate back to BOM, then SQ would have an uneven BOM-SIN schedule - some days they will have two flights, some days none....
I hope this explains part of the uneven schedule. As for the uneven CDG and ZRH schedules, that involves MAD as well.... that one doesn't make much sense to me!
