Singapore Airlines to commence A350-900ULR non-stop services to Los Angeles from 2 November 2018; terminates Seoul-Los Angeles route

Singapore Airlines will start its long-awaited Singapore-Los Angeles non-stop services from 2 November 2018, using the two-cabin Airbus A350-900ULR.

Starting the first week off with three services, daily service will commence from 9 November 2018, and another three weekly services will start from 7 December 2018, making it a total of 10 services a week.

With the commencement of non-stop services to Los Angeles, SQ will be pulling off Singapore-Seoul-Los Angeles route (SQ7/8), this means that those who wants a stop between this incredibly long journey will now be able to do it only via Tokyo-Narita (SQ11/12).

The Singapore-San Francisco non-stop service, currently operated with a three-cabin configured Airbus A350-900, will increase to 10 times weekly.


The announcement came shortly after United Airlines announce it was terminating its Singapore-Los Angeles non-stop service, and doubling its Singapore-San Francisco service instead. This brings the weekly non-stop service to San Francisco to 24 a week, which is rather insane if you ask me.

So if you want to go to San Francisco or Los Angeles, the complete SQ schedule is as follow:
