Yes it will cost a bomb. Because even within the Business Class prices, only the highest (most expensive) booking class is opened and available. All other lower and cheaper classes are blocked/zeroed out.

Singapore Air Plans to Buy More Aircraft, Airbus’s Leahy Says
By Kyunghee Park - Feb 25, 2013 5:45 PM GMT+0800

Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SIA), Southeast Asia’s biggest carrier, plans to buy more aircraft, Airbus SAS said, as the region’s economic growth spurs air travel demand.

Airbus will suggest its A350 model to Singapore Air, John Leahy, the planemaker’s chief operating officer, said in an interview in Singapore today.
“We’re in discussions with them,” Leahy said. “They are also looking at other aircraft. They issued a request for proposal on that to Airbus, to Boeing, to engine manufacturers. Anything else, I can’t comment.”

Singapore Air, the first carrier to fly the Airbus A380, in October agreed to order five more of the superjumbos and 20 A350-900s as it adds fuel-efficient planes amid competition from Gulf airlines. Asia-Pacific will lead the demand for new aircraft as economic growth helps boost the number of middle class population by almost five-times in 20 years, Leahy said.

“We discuss fleet requirements with manufacturers on a regular basis, in line with our longstanding policy to maintain a young and modern fleet,” said Nicholas Ionides, a spokesman for the carrier. He declined to elaborate, saying discussions are confidential.

The A350 is Airbus’s biggest twin-engine model, with seating for about 314 passengers on the A350-900 variant, which has a list price of $287.7 million. The larger A350-1000 can hold 350 passengers and has a published price of $332.1 million. Buyers typically get a discount from list prices.

Maiden Flight

The A350 is set for its maiden flight in the middle of this year. The aircraft’s small and mid-sized variants compete with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, while the large model is positioned against the popular 777.

Airbus would acquire Singapore Air’s five A340-500s as part of the October order. These planes will leave the carrier’s fleet in the fourth quarter of this year, forcing the end of non-stop services to Los Angeles as well as Newark, the world’s longest commercial flight.

The carrier transferred its 20 on-order Boeing (BA) 787s, due to start arriving in 2014, to low-cost arm Scoot from the main Singapore Air unit. Scoot began services using 777s in June. Singapore Air’s regional unit SilkAir separately signed a provisional agreement for 54 Boeing 737 planes in August.

The seat fabric is almost the same as the current QR's seats

It'll be a bit tough to make it happen because it will be a very long-haul flight. The best way to do that would be to fly either via San Francisco, Los Angeles, or Houston, then you can continue on to Mexico. Also available would be via Barcelona.

Actually, back in the early 90s when Singapore Airlines was actively chasing fifth freedom routes, it did look at flying SIN-MAD-MEX, SIN-HKG-JFK, SIN-SYD-LAX, SIN-LHR-JFK amongst many tags. Needless to say, those never happened.

Singapore Air increases weekly service from Ahmedabad


AHMEDABAD, MAR 8: Singapore Airlines will add an extra weekly service from Ahmedabad to Singapore to make it four times a week for the month of May to cater to the strong seasonal demand, an official said here on Friday.

Demand on the Ahmedabad-Singapore route, the only non-stop international service to the Far East has been especially strong. To meet it, the airlines will maintain three weekly services throughout the northern summer schedule starting on March 31, said G M Toh, General Manager India, Singapore Airlines.

Meanwhile, Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has introduced new attractions to enthrall the Indian travellers as part of its second phase of the customized and differentiated marketing campaign for leisure travellers. Christened as “Singapore—The Holiday You Take Home With You”, it aims to entice new and repeat travellers, G B Srithar, Area Director, South Asia, STB, said.

In the first half of 2012, 7.1 million travelers visited Singapore, with India, the fourth major market, accounting for 478,000, or 6% of the total. In 2011, altogether 8.69 lakh Indian travellers visited Singapore, contributing about 7 per cent of revenue to the island-state’s total revenue in tourism. In all, tourism contributes 4-5 per cent of revenues in Singapore’s economy, he said.

The number of Indian travellers to Singapore for business purposes is 1/4th of the total number of Indian travellers.

By the way, just noticed that moon and stars on Singapore's flag are placed vice versa. Any reason for that?

I asked somebody the same thing before, they said that it is put in such a way as the wind is blowing an actual flag. So on the right side of the aircraft, it is put the correct way
