Can you imagine the joys of flying
The latest round of flights was kicked off by SIA [Singapore] late last year. The carrier announced its plans to resume nonstop services to New York, which it currently offers only on a one-stop basis through Frankfurt, and to Los Angeles, which is now linked to its network via a Tokyo stop. The new New York flight is to launch in 2018. At a distance of about 8,300 nm depending on routing, Singapore-New York was once the world’s longest commercial route, but given the plans of other airlines, it will not reconquer that title. The A340-500 flights were based on a westbound block time of roughly 19 hr.; given the higher cruise speed of the A350 the new flights are likely to be somewhat, but not much, shorter.
