SIA price fixing plea accepted by judge
Written by Bloomberg
Wednesday, 09 February 2011 08:15


Singapore Airlines Cargo will pay a US$48 million criminal fine as part of a price-fixing plea that was accepted by a US judge.

The unit of Singapore Airlines, the world’s second-largest airline by market value, pleaded guilty today in federal court in Washington to conspiring with air cargo companies to fix rates on international shipments. US District Judge John Bates accepted the plea and proposed penalty, which was announced by the Justice Department in November.
“This antitrust offense involves significant misconduct in the marketplace,” said Bates, adding that the fine being imposed is “at the top of the guideline range.”

The plea is part of the department’s investigation into the air-cargo industry. Including Singapore Airlines, 21 airlines and 19 executives have been charged and more than US$1.7 billion in fines have been levied, according to the Justice Department.

Other airlines that have agreed to pay fines in the investigation are Polar Air Cargo LLC, a unit of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc.; Air France-KLM Group; Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd.; SAS Cargo Group A/S and Martinair Holland NV, a unit of KLM.

Singapore Airlines Cargo pleaded guilty to a single felony count of conspiracy to restrain trade. The department filed the one-count felony charge in federal court on Nov 30 accusing the company of helping fix prices between 2002 and 2006. Bates said the value of affected commerce was US$85.6 million.

Bridal gowns considered a security risk on flights?
By Alicia Wong – February 14th, 2011

A letter writer complains to Australian media about Singapore Airlines.

A couple travelling on Singapore Airlines (SIA) to Abu Dhabi to get married were apparently refused assistance with the wedding dress, according to a letter sent to Australian media.

According to the letter-writer, Robyn Lewis, mother of the bride, the couple contacted SIA before they left Australia to request for a small area to hang the dress, which was in a travel bag.

“My daughter was told it could be a security risk and was not given any hope of a place to hang the dress. At check-in and again on the plane they were refused any assistance with the dress,” she wrote in the letter.

She said, the dress was “small with no hoops and weighed almost nothing”.

“Consequently, the dress arrived in a poor state and required drycleaning to restore it to its pre-departure condition,” she said.

When contacted, SIA told AsiaOne it was unable to comment on the incident as it had not received any complaints. The airline urged the complainant to contact them and provide them with more details.

SIA's passenger carriage up in January
Posted: 15 February 2011 1746 hrs

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines recorded a 2.9 per cent on-year growth in passenger carriage in January.

The number of passengers carried rose to 1.44 million, up 3.2 per cent from the same month the previous year, SIA said in a statement.

The carrier's passenger load factor fell 1 percentage point to 78.1 per cent as capacity grew 4.2 per cent.

All regions except Americas and Europe recorded increases in passenger load factors in January compared to a year ago.

SIA attributed the declines for the American and European regions to a reduction in lower-fare promotional traffic compared to the same period last year.

The airline added capacity to several destinations, including Manchester (via Munich), and Houston (via Moscow), Osaka and Seoul.

A new double-daily service to Tokyo-Haneda was launched on 31 October 2010, complementing the existing twice-daily services to Tokyo-Narita.

Meanwhile, overall cargo traffic improved by 12.5 per cent, while cargo capacity increased by 10.1 per cent. This led to an improvement in cargo load factor of 1.3 percentage points.

The cargo load factor improved for all regions except East Asia, which registered a 4.9 percentage point decline as cargo traffic did not keep pace with capacity increases.

Overall, SIA filled 67.9 per cent of the space available on its planes for passengers and cargo in January. This was slightly lower than the 68.2 per cent achieved in January last year.

A310 was wide-body. All Airbuses are widebodies except the A320 family (318-321).

American fined for being drunk on plane
By Elena Chong

AN AMERICAN passenger who became drunk on board a Singapore Airlines flight from Dubai to Singapore was fined $2,000 on Thursday.

Events manager Michael David Mitchell, 41, admitted to the offence under the Air Navigation Order at about 3am on Feb 9.

A court heard that he was scheduled to transit in Singapore before departing for Australia the same day.

He admitted taking a sleeping pill after having three glasses of wine, as he wanted to rest during the flight from Dubai to Singapore. He could not recall what had happened subsequently.

He could have been fined up to $20,000.

It is an offence for a person to enter any aircraft when drunk, or be drunk

Tiger gets ready to pounce on new markets
Geoff Easdown From: Herald Sun February 20, 2011 11:31PM

BUDGET operator Tiger Airways hopes to overcome Australian air navigation laws so it can operate long-haul flights overseas.

Company chief Tony Davis wants to establish a wholly Australian-owned business to operate commercial flights beyond our coastline.

BusinessDaily was told that Mr Davis discussed the proposal with interested parties during a visit to Melbourne this month.

Vanessa Regan, a spokeswoman for Tiger Airways, said last night the airline was "willing and able to fly internationally if and when we get approval to do so."

She said that one route the airline would like to operate would be between Australia and New Zealand.

Tiger Airways, which is listed on the Singapore stock exchange, is regarded under Australian air transport rules as a foreign-owned company.

It can operate a domestic air service, but not venture beyond local air space.

Two years ago, Mr Davis raised the possibility of expanding his then infant Australian operation with flights from Perth and Darwin using Australian crews and Australian-registered aircraft.

But officials in Canberra rejected the plan and reminded him that a law prevented overseas-owned airlines that operated Australian-registered aircraft from operating commercial services out of the country.

Since then, Tiger Airlines has expanded and is now believed to have a number of influential Australians on its share register, who Mr Davis hopes to recruit for a new Australian-owned business.

Cracked windshield forces SIA plane to land
Posted: 21 February 2011 1245 hrs

SINGAPORE: A Singapore Airlines plane bound for Melbourne had to turn back to Changi Airport early Monday morning.

An SIA spokesman told MediaCorp that about one hour after its take-off, Flight SQ237 flew back to Singapore after a crack formed on the first officer's windshield.

The aircraft, a Boeing 747-400, departed Singapore at 11.52pm (23:52 local time) on February 20 and touched down at Singapore at 2.43am.

An aircraft change was carried out and the flight left Singapore for Melbourne at 4.42am Monday morning.

SIA delays flight to Christchurch
By Timothy Ouyang / Wayne Chan | Posted: 22 February 2011 1653 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines said it is delaying its flight from Singapore to Christchurch on Tuesday evening.

SQ297, which was scheduled to depart at 7.45pm, is now delayed till Wednesday.

More details of the rescheduled flight will be released on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, SQ298 from Christchurch landed safely in Singapore at 4.51pm.

The flight, carrying 242 passengers, departed Christchurch at 11.50am local time, an hour before the earthquake struck New Zealand's second largest city.

At Changi Airport Terminal 3, some of the 220 passengers meant to board the postponed SQ 297 flight to Christchurch, arrived only to face the bad news.

Some, like 69-year-old seafood exporter John Hartnell, anxiously tried to contact relatives back home.

"I can't contact my wife because all the telephones are out. Mobiles are not working as well so communication is impossible. So I am trying to get back to her as fast as I can. I don't think even Singapore Airlines knows exactly what damage has occurred. Whether it's runways or controls or what. So from that point of view, we're in the dark," he said.

Others, like 33-year-old Christopher Lee from the UK, expressed concern for those in Christchurch.

"The airport's been closed from what I understand as a lot of people are being re-routed...these guys (SIA and airport staff) have been fantastically helpful. My whole experience in Singapore has been very efficient...at the end of the day, there's a lot of people in an awful lot more trouble than we are with a few missed flights," he said.

SIA said on its website that it will waive administrative fees for refund, re-booking or re-routing of tickets.

This is for customers holding confirmed tickets issued on or before February 22 2011, for travel to and from Christchurch from February 22 to March 6. The waiver also applies to KrisFlyer redemption tickets.

SIA added that it will continue to closely monitor the situation and will provide constant updates. It will also arrange accommodation for affected passengers here.

The carrier advises customers to check its website regularly.

SIA also said it expects disruptions to its operations in Christchurch.

The airport in Christchurch has been shut after the earthquake struck the city earlier on Tuesday.

SIA operates a daily flight between Singapore and Christchurch and also flies to Auckland 12 times a week.

Singapore's Foreign Affairs Ministry said it has not received any reports of Singaporeans affected by the quake but is also closely monitoring the situation in Christchurch.
