This should answer your question:

Not content with this, from August 2004 the airline will be offering a further attraction: non-stop services from Singapore to New York and back again. The outward flight will follow a 15,700km route along the Pacific coast and over northern Canada, while the return flight above the North Pole will be significantly longer, at 16,600km. Due to the prevailing wind directions, both flights will take about 18 hours. Up to now, SIA's New York services have had a refuelling stop in Frankfurt or Amsterdam. The new direct route across the Pacific or the North Pole will reduce the trip time from America to Asia by two hours, and from Singapore to New York by as much as 6 hours.

Quick french translation:
de Singapour à New York, le vol longe la côte Pacifique et survole le Nord du Canada (15.700km, 16h)
De New York à Singapour, la route est plus longue et passe par le Pôle Nord (16.600km, 18h), en raison de vents défavorables.
Cela fait six heures en moins pour aller de Singapour à New York.
