SIA: HKG-SIN- HK$ 680 + Tax Only!

Thu Sep 08, 2005 7:42 pm

Usually airfares in Hong Kong are more expensive than in Europe, Australia, USA, Canada etc. I know this fare might not be cheap if you compare it with fares in USA, Australia etc but it is very for Hong Kong standards.

In the past we would be jumping up and down if we can get something like HK$ 1800+ Tax. Airfares between HKG and SIN are much cheaper than they were....

Wonder why CX, UA and the rest are not coming up with competing fares.

SQ is now competing with other low cost airlines such as Jetstar asia. Although SQ fare is still higher, but more than compensated for better food and cabin comfort. SQ also offer restricted low fare package to other asian destinations such as MNL, TPE and BKK.

Wonder if they will come up with specials in November/December. Plan to visit Singapore around that period. Also South Africa in February 2006 on Singapore Airlines

UA and CX should come up with competing fares.

It is possible that UA's load factors are such that they don't need to offer matching fares. Don't know - just a speculation.
