SQ's New Non-stop Flights To New York

Fri Nov 07, 2003 5:11 pm

Does anyone know the schedules of the new non-stop flights Singapore Airlines is planning to introduce to New York using A340-500s?

Ctang, sorry, no answer for you, just an additional question: with the introduction of the non-stop flights, will the JFK flights via FRA be stopped?

Dear Mozart,

I don't think so, because they cater to different markets: SQ makes the most money out of this flight with passengers (like myself next Sunday Big grin), who fly FRA-JFK, and they fill up that aircraft quite nicely, besides it's a codeshare with LH.

Regards

I'm not sure if they make money with German pax on that flight. The fares are allways rockbottom low. So I am not sure, if they will continue the daily flight schedule once they have the SIN-JFK flight

The plan is to continue FRA-JFK. And yes, those flights are below breakeven.

That sounds awesome, ALL longhaul economy should be 37in pitch. Just flew BA's World Traveler Plus product LHR-JFK and frankly, as a business traveler, the extra room was worth the money!

The flights should only start sometime Aug '04 when the 3rd, 4th and 5th A345s are delivered.

Could SFO be the third SQ nonstop SIN-USA destination? Possibly in December 04?
