I highly doubt SQ would completely get rid of the A380. Unlike the other A380 carries, not talking about EK, SQ can afford to charge a premium on the Singapore to London and Zurich routes as these are financial hubs. Also, they invested too much money in the cabin retrofits to get rid of it, especia...Jump to post

The irony in this is they just celebrated their 100 year anniversary.
Get rid of it. Its all about the A350,787 and soon 777-9. Even the A380 is dying a slow death lolJump to post
Interesting read about how private aviation companies like NetJets and FlexJet will come out stronger after COVID. There will be more wealthy people choosing to fly private over commercial due to fear of being in a confined space with strangers. https://www-forbes-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.forb...Jump to post
As Singapore Airlines retires their last 4 777-200ER fleet this year. What was once the workhorse of SIA fleet, is not nothing more than history. So sad
Should SQ really wish to serve IAH via another US point I would have thought HNL would be better than ANC. Unless you think there's some big demand SIN-HNL (?), a little time with Great Circle Mapper will explain why HNL isn't a great stop between SE Asia and much of the US-48. I think Scoot used t...Jump to post

Alaska wants SQ to fly from SIN-ANC, then transfer their pax and cargo onto United. How would this even work? Lol Transferring between Singapore Airlines and United is problematic for passengers and cargo. Singapore Airlines is a premium airline. It is seldom the cheapest since passengers are paying...Jump to post

What if EK or EY takes over. Go head to head with BA and will give the Americans a run for their money on the Transatlantic routes. Etuhahad losing money. Emirates trying to save money.

I don't know i can't hardly blame the guy. The airlines should eliminate all recline option in economy period. They were the one's who shrunk down seat pitch to 30'' and for that poor bastard in the last row with no chance of reclining that'd tick me off as well. i realize he could have paid $11 to...Jump to post

I would imagine they keep flights to the likes of Beijing, Tianjin, and Qingdao, but why haven't they suspended all other destinations yet?
American based cabin crew are always screaming “we’re here for safety not service”. So just give them a white blouse, black skirt or pants and call it a day lolJump to post
I honestly dont know how this route is going to make money. SIN-PEN is dominated by the Low Cost Carriers ( Air Asia, Scoot and Silk Air). Given the fact the MI is soon to be absorbed into SQ and getting premium cabin products, flat beds in JCL and PTVs in EYCLY, is there really a need for 2 premium...Jump to post
I am one of those people who think that KE’s blue-top livery looks terribly outdated now. It has not aged well at all, unlike say SQ, EK or NH. Those oldfangled titles have been in place since 1984. Is KE due for a brand refresh? Does it even need one? Should it be a radical change like LH, or a mi...Jump to post
This seems slightly surprising to me. SQ's competitive advantage on these fifth freedom routes is the extremely positive public perception of its hard and soft product. I feel like their advantage in that regard is going to be very weak on this route compared with others. The Japanese carriers also...Jump to post
Because marketing and planning clowns change their mind every so often, even before the last round of upgrades have been completely implemented in many cases. It's how they justify their existence. Sometimes, they change them back 10 years later and call it innovation. https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumb...Jump to post
Probably cost and aircraft interior space.
Cleary cant fit the New Singapore Airlines A380 Suites in a 777-9. Hence why SQ is creating a completely new First Class for the 777-9

I've not been aware of any SQ MAX orders and don't see it documented anywhere. This is super-interesting, can anyone shed more light?

The first SQ 737 MAX was spotted yesterday. It’s been almost 45 years since a 737 graced SQ’s timeless livery. Can’t wait to see it in full colors!
