I see the outbound from SIN (SQ22), but not the return for some reason...is it not a daily service?

I really dont know how any1 can stand being in an aircraft for 18 hours or more.Personally i think i will go bonkers.I`d rather take the flight that stops in FRA or AMS..at least i get to breathe some fresh air and stretch my legs.As for shaving off 2 hours..is it really a big deal??i mean if someone cant spare 2 hours of their life....be it for work or whatever...

Not via AMS. As of August 1st SQ will no longer fly between AMS and SIN but daily SIN-AMS-SIN with B777 (SQ324/3).

I read that the JFK flight was being switched to AMS, guess not.

Still good news for EWR and NYC.

I thought I saw the AMS flight (SQ23) operating from JFK in September when I looked in the schedules for the nonstop...maybe the 777 operates on the other days of the week?

Most interesting!



Singapore Airlines Limited - A Member of Star Alliance will launch the A345LeaderShip - Making The World A Smaller Place - on an 18 hour and 25 minute flight from Singapore to Newark on 28 July 2004.

The flight will depart at 1210 and arrive the same day in EWR at 1835.

On 28 July 2004, the Airline will inaugurate the first non-stop A345LeaderShip flight from EWR to Singapore Changi.

The flight will depart on 28 July 2004 at 2230 and arrive on 30 July 2004 at 0535. Flight time is...dunno.

The daytime flight from SIN to EWR sounds pretty convenient, but the redeye return sounds absolutely horrible! Can you imagine flying in darkness for 18 hours straight? How depressing! At least there should be a small bit of daylight over the Arctic in summer...

Wonder if the payload specs would be increased from the previously posted amounts....

...would seem a significantly greater penalty would be needed to get the world's longest flight off of a 11,000ft runway as opposed to a 14,572footer.

I guess the late departure time helps.

EWR - time zone EDT (in July), GMT-4
SIN - time zone GMT+8

therefore, flight time should be 17hr 35min eastbound.

This is smart move for SQ and is make added more new nonstop from SIN-EWR and is that possible was still with these days out of SIN. Is that was first time ever with the longest flight to EWR or JFK.

While the FRA-JFK (SQ25/26) remain, Lufthansa has cancelled their codeshare (LH9766) on this flight because apparently SQ has been taking to much customers away from them.

I flew SQ from FRA to JFK and back on LH this December, such a big difference, LH was only bearable drunk!!! Not very good at all!

Any reason EWR was chosen over JFK?

EWR traditionally attracts a higher percentage of the high-yield business travelers from Manhattan, which is the target of this new flight. I would imagine the direct rail link to Manhattan is helpful here, although JFK will soon have it's own connection instead of today's rather convoluted, time consuming service.

I am pretty sure that the AirTrain to JFK opened. It started service 17 December.

Though you are right, Newark has a higher amount of business travelers. It is very convienent to Lower Manhattan, and northern New Jersey is home to a plethora of office parks and huge corporations. It is a major business centre. Plus, Newark allows greater domestic connections.

There are several large Asian corporations with their North American headquarters in and around Ft.Lee New Jersey, companies like Panasonic, Samsung etc..

FYI..

Ft.Lee is also home to CNBC, I've eaten at a diner across the street from their studios where Ron and Maria frequent. Ft.Lee is a popular business community in Bergen County because it's on the West side of the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan.

Interesting, EWR will have 2 ultra long haul flights, the SQ service discussed here plus the CO 777 service to Hong Kong.....and neither HKG or SIN are served from JFK on a nonstop basis - EWR has come a long way!

That's correct for the nonstop from EWR-HKG and also, UA was using with the nonstop from JFK-HKG flight already before 9/11 and but, it was dropped already. I am still hopefully will hear CX will began nonstop from JFK-HKG anytime soon in the future and is that still use with via to YVR flight?

RE: Why No Wingtips On The 777?

Fri Dec 26, 2003 2:45 am

777gk, it all depends on the market....I don't think either JFK or EWR wins handsdown for which airport attracts more business pax..As STT757 stated, there are lots of Asian corporations with headquarters in NJ.

But then look at AF, they have one daily A340 from EWR-CDG (the A340s are for their thinner yielding routes) while JFK has several daily 777/747 (I think 7 daily during the summer). It all depends on the route and the airline.

AF used to fly 747s to EWR when they had the codeshare with CO, they even flew out of CO's Terminal C.

When CO joins Skyteam I would expect AF to again boost their capacity at EWR, CO will bring back their second daily nonstop to CDG this Spring. Also Air India has been doing very well with their daily 747-400 from EWR-CDG, so there's lots of lift on that route.

SQ must feel that there is to much nonstop competition from JFK to Asia, so why not fly out of EWR instead. CO currently operates the only nonstop Asia flights right o (NRT,HKG)

STT, the point was that right now AF has a lot more premium demand at JFK than EWR......so it all depends on the airline and the route.

True, but I would be willing to bet that they are flying larger aircraft out of EWR when CO enters Skyteam.
