Singapore Airlines redefines long-haul air travel with the launch of the world’s first all-Business Class flights from North America to Asia. The newly reconfigured Airbus A340-500 replaces the two-class, 181-seat configuration with 100 of the Airline’s new Business Class seats. Singapore Airlines is the first to operate an all-Business Class service on the transpacific route.
The conversion of all five of the Airline’s A340-500s from a two-class configuration to an all-Business Class seating is being carried out in phases. For now, the all-Business Class A340-500 operates only on certain days of the week with daily services to Singapore expected by end June. By late September 2008, Singapore Airlines will also fly the all-Business Class service from Los Angeles to Singapore daily.
