Will UA carry passengers between SIN and HKG?

Tue Jul 07, 2020 5:49 am

I understand that they will start SFO-HKG-SIN in July. Will they carry passengers between SIN and HKG? It shows that it will.

Singapore - Hong Kong is served by Singapore Airlines and Cathay. Why on earth would you book United Airlines if those two are an option?

Well this route has been around for ages. You get full UA service for the price of a low cost carrier. UA is not bad at all actually.

In your opening comment, you said that "it shows that it will". Where did you see that it will?

You can book it on United.com as UA877 a 787-9. Fares start at $158 USD Basic Economy up to $1251 for J.
Not likely you'd fly Cathay or Singapore at those prices.

because as a fifth freedom flight, it will most likely be very cheap like it used to be in the past....

this is the kind of fare LCCs were charging not so long ago. If I had to go to SIN now, I would surely book that.

Might be good for Singaporeans as they start early and end late. But for Hongkongers we lose a day.

for some Hongkongers, you can go to HKG on friday night after work to have a weekend getaway,
then can be back to work on Monday afternoon.

In the past, the redeye Scoot flight which arrives HKG 5am in the morning is my favorite flight SIN to HKG.

I used to fly UA SIN-HKG-SIN every two weeks back in 2011-12. Timing was excellent to depart early Saturday morning and be in the city by around 10am (back then the departure was 5am sharp). The return just after 8pm from HKG to SIN on Sundays was also great. And the fares were cheaper than Jetstar or Scoot.
