United Airlines will discontinue its short-lived Los Angeles (LAX)–Singapore (SIN) route, trading it for a second daily San Francisco (SFO)–Singapore service. The Los Angeles–Singapore flight launched October 2017 and ranked as the longest non-stop route operating to or from the United States, as well as the longest Dreamliner route in the world.
The service will run until Oct. 27, after just one year in operation. The Dreamliner will be used on the second daily flight between SFO and Singapore.
The airline told Business Traveller, “We heard from our customers that while they appreciated the nonstop service between Los Angeles and Singapore, many desired alternative departure and arrival times. By adjusting the schedule to twice-daily service between San Francisco and Singapore, we can now offer customers traveling between the US and Singapore more choice with optimal departure and arrival times to meet their needs.
“The schedule for San Francisco-Singapore #2 now offers customers a morning departure and evening arrival to Singapore as well as an evening departure from Singapore and evening arrival into San Francisco. In addition to providing more schedule options for our customers, the new frequency will utilize our premium morning San Francisco bank and enable nearly 20 new one-stop connections from destinations throughout North America and will connect Singapore customers to nearly 80 cities throughout the US, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Dallas.”
