Re: Intro of Singapore AIr A350ULR Routes?

Geographically, SIN is about the worst place on the planet to connect to anywhere , if coming from N.America... and SQ they can already tap into AS' routes from SFO and LAX I don't have a globe and have a terrible time picturing flight paths, so would something like ORD - SIN - MEL be thinkable?

To the first three posters: does this suit your fancy? It's not tied to an airline, but it allows a fair bit of customization.

Re: Why has Boeing ceded the 777-200 / 300 replacement to Airbus ?

I think it is pretty clear that 777 are and will be replaced by both 787s and A350s and that it depends on the route network and operating conditions for each airline to determine what is the best fit. I'm not familiar with which airplanes are operating which routes, so pardon my ignorance -- what ...

All this ( again ) shows what a disaster the 787 was.
