It is that new ( ?) flight from SQ and the A340-500B are used......
I am wandering how long the flight will continue. It is to long for me and a stop on the route ( Tokyo or Taipei) is a great and better alernative...
Why would you want to spend 24 hours fliying just so you can walk around like a zombie at Narita for an hour and a half or so. What does that do to improve your health. Especially when the Econ seats thru Narita offer you a 31/32 inch pitch. I would much rather get it over with in 18 hours non stop if I can enjoy a 37 inch pitch and a wider seat.
Way to go SQ. How about bidding for LA -Joburg non stop!!

For a brief outlook on the diagram, go to http://www.singaporeair.com and click on the diagram : "Making the world a smaller place" featuring the Airbus A345 Leadership. You will then be directed to another window where you will see the approximate flight paths of SIN-LAX, LAX-SIN and SIN-NYC-SIN.
If it takes 24 hours or so to do a one-stop from L.A. to Singapore, then being able to cut that to 18 hours or so is definitely worth it. Especially if you're flying economy, you get a 25% shorter travel time AND wider seats with more leg room and a leg rest. Sounds good to me!
