Woo! I’ll be waiting to see that beauty!
Yup and it would be it’s 4th destination (or 5th as JNB-CPT is a fifth freedom and 8th if Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong also added)
- Amsterdam (Served)
- Johannesburg (+ Cape Town)
- San Francisco
- Kuala Lumpur
- Hong Kong

Many people speculated that this is SIA reaction to it’s Star Alliance counterpart (United) which will launch the SFO-SIN route by B787
The Singapore Airlines A350.
Uh huh…I see…
That sounds awesome! I’m pretty excited!
Hmm retaining two services to SFO… Hopefully SIN-SFO won’t eat too much of the SIN-HKG-SFO traffic. 5th freedom routes are few and far between unfortunately and I’d like to see some remain :(.
Sorry, just got a correction when watching CNA :
As ChannelNewsAsia stated, Singapore Airlines will open a route to SFO with A350 Non-stop (So the fifth freedom via HKG won’t got A350) and becoming the 2nd carrier to operate SIN-SFO Non-stop after United with it’s B787 by October (IIRC). Unlike LAX and EWR Non-stop which will have to wait till’ 2018
Another surprise again is SIA will stop SIN-ICN-SFO service and change it to SIN-ICN-LAX after this non-stop route opened. Leaving SIN-HKG-SFO and SIN-SFO (New with A350 route)
Though by keeping SIN-HKG-SFO route, It can still targeting HKG-SFO leg as CX is monopolying this route
So SIA envisions KEWR, KJFK and KSFO (not sure about KJFK)
They’re only upgrading 7 A359s into ULR variants right?
Yup but based on CNA, SFO route won’t be served by -ULR (As it will be launch on October)
Yea I read…
Kanchiong SIA is kanchiong
Isn’t SIA trying to switch their 772’s out of their HKG route?
TBH I would want to see LAX more than SFO
Ehh! Johannesburg is the next destination for SIAs A350 the Monday after the next, 27th \June to be exact
Yea @buzzlightyear mentioned it before:
