The first-ever flight will not go to the USA, because SIN will fly SIN-SYD on the first flight, and the next route will be SIN-LHR.

I think the first flights to the USA might be by LH or AF, probably to SFO, but this will take some more years. So I guess you will either have to travel or wait.

Some time ago you were already able to book the first flight on SQ, but that was before the delivery was postponed.

thats what half this forum is waiting for.

Expect first flight to be LHR-SIN or SIN-LHR in December or next year with Singapore Airlines.
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY
