a few weeks back there were posts regarding a rumored new service from SIN to ORD via MUC. i was hoping that would materialise, but there were a few doubtful points. the most glaring point was how SQ would start a new route to a new final destination with a stopover that was a new destination as well.
well i called SQ chicago yesterday and asked if there are or will be direct flights between ORD and SIN, and the lady said there aren't, you have to fly domestic to their gateways at SFO, LAX, JFK and EWR and then connect. i then asked her if there are plans to start flights soon, and she said "not that i know of." there is also no mention of this new service on yahoo airline news or the sq website, so i suppose this isn't going to happen anytime soon.
another interesting point: i notice that the sign at ORD t3 lists SQ as one of the airlines there. is this leftover from SQ's codeshare with AA via LAX or SFO in the early '90s, or is there some other thing behind this?
