SQ 001 and 002 are awarded to San Francisco? Seems rather random. Also, 001 is for the return flight.

It is, and it has been for some time now. SQ001-099 are assigned to Singapore-US flights, regardless of stopovers. Fortunately, its companion flight, SQ015/016 (SIN-SFO via ICN) isn't affected by the flight cancelations due to the typhoon; I'd imagine though how much of a detour it'll go through between ICN and SIN...

I'd have guessed London would be the most premium/prestigious route for them (they usually get 1/2/3/etc. flight numbers). But guess it's America, which surprises me. I guess they gave 1/2 to SF due to all the Asians living there.

The numbering dates from the early days of Singapore Airlines' marketing, with the start of DC-10 service between Singapore and San Francisco via Hong Kong and Honolulu. In addition, back then, San Francisco was the west coast's financial hub. Japan Airlines too, has 001/002 for Tokyo-San Francisco. On a wider scale, Asian carriers typically looked at the USA as a prestige destination with single or lower double digit numbers, or auspicious numbers a la ANA, Korean Air, Cathay Pacific and the like.

The showcase seat shows a full size bed, with full width on the top and bottom of the bed.
However, onboard, if there is a seat in front of you, you dont get the full width on the bottom of the bed. Instead, you get a foot well with significantly less width, as depicted here


As most seats are behind of other seats, the displayed seat only represents very few of the seats (the bulkhead seats). Hence I said exaggeration.

La compagnie de Star Alliance a d’autre part pris possession de son premier 777-300ER équipé des nouvelles cabines, avec des sièges redessinés dans les trois classes, des écrans plus larges et un système de divertissement amélioré. Déployé dès le mois prochain vers Londres – Heathrow, il sera rejoint par les sept autres 300ER commandés (19 sont déjà en service), qui bénéficieront des nouveaux aménagements tout comme les 70 Airbus A350-900 et cinq A380 en attente de livraison. Singapore Airlines a investi au total près de 550 millions dollars dans ces nouveaux produits, dont la nouvelle Première classe décrite comme « un sanctuaire privatif » : siège fourni par Jamco d’une largeur de près de 89 cm et une longueur de 208 cm, « élégante unité de contrôle centralisé » permettant de piloter un écran haute définition (24 inches de diagonale) avec manette tactile, ports USB, HDMI et eXport. La classe Affaires aura également droit à de nouveaux sièges signés Jamco, avec positions assises « transat » et « lazy Z » (jambes relevées) et se transformant en lit parfaitement horizontal long de 198 cm (l’écran de 18 inches aura la même connectivité qu’en Première). Enfin en classe Economie, Singapore Airlines a choisi Zodiac pour son nouveau siège, au dossier rembourré et avec de nouveaux supports latéraux et un repose-tête rembourré et ajustable (écran de 11,1 inches).

Hey guys, on October 15th SIA has scheduled a conference in Warsaw. Does anyone know what is the purpose of this event? Any chance SIA is looking to announce Warsaw as one of it's new destinations for next year?

Last official statement I heard was that after Emirates' and Qatar's success in Warsaw, SIA is looking to follow however, not earlier than 2015.

Does anyone have any further information?

Well they just did announce that they were bringing back Athens next year. So there is good hope that a possible route is coming. Star Alliance hub to Star Alliance hub. I feel as if that part of Europe and Asia are under served by bigger airlines. SQ will probably have to wait as more planes come in and SQ figures out how they will manage everything. What would the possible times if they did come in.

India's Tata SIA Airlines expects to take flight by mid-2014
POSTED: 26 Oct 2013 16:35


India's newest planned airline, a joint venture of Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, expects to win swift regulatory clearance and be able to start flying by mid-next year, the carrier's chairman said.

NEW DELHI: India's newest planned airline, a joint venture of Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, expects to win swift regulatory clearance and be able to start flying by mid-next year, the carrier's chairman said.

Indian tea-to-steel conglomerate Tata will hold a 51 percent stake and Singapore Airlines Ltd 49 percent in the new venture, which was announced last month, as they seek to exploit one of the world's fastest-growing aviation markets.

"We are looking at very fast clearances. We hope that we will be able to launch by May-June," Prasad Menon, chairman of the new carrier, Tata SIA Airlines, told reporters late Friday.

Even though the Foreign Investment Promotion Board earlier this week cleared the venture to be headquartered in India's capital, a string of other regulatory approvals are needed before the new carrier can take to the skies.

"I don't see any problems" in the new airline obtaining the clearances, aviation minister Ajit Singh told reporters after meeting Tata Sia's executives in New Delhi on Friday.

The airline, which is planning to offer full service unlike rival carriers, which are mainly no-frills, needs a "no-objection certificate" from the aviation ministry.

The airline, which will have an initial combined investment of $100 million from the two stakeholders, marks the third foreign direct investment in the aviation sector since the government declared last year international airlines could buy as much as 49 percent of local carriers.

The Tata Group is setting up another airline venture in India with Malaysia-based budget carrier AirAsia, which is expected to start operations early in 2014.

The government has also cleared the way for Abu Dhabi-based Etihad to pick up a stake in Indian private carrier Jet Airways.

India's aviation sector was once celebrated as a sign of the country's vibrant economy.

Its fortunes faded owing to a range of obstacles ranging from aggressive fare rivalry and rundown infrastructure to expensive fuel, but there now is renewed interest as investors eye the nation's vast aviation market and growing middle class.
