    Singapore Airlines To Add Third Daily A380 Service Between Singapore And London

    10 April 2012 - Singapore Airlines’ three daily services on the Singapore-London route will all be operated with the Airbus A380 from 1 June 2012.

    Currently, two of the services are operated with the superjumbo while one is operated with the Boeing 777-300ER. From 1 June 2012, the third daily service, departing Singapore as flight SQ308 and returning from London as SQ319, will be operated with an A380 as well.

    The switch to the larger A380 will increase seat capacity on the route by 17% a day.

    London was Singapore Airlines’ first destination in Europe to receive the superjumbo, in March 2008.

    Got an email from our New Zealand-based TA to provide us with an updated itinerary which now shows we are booked under "suites" instead of "first" for our SQ319 on June 8th. :)

    Good news for suites and 380 lovers. Bad news for those planning to book *A RTW F tickets in the future.

    SQ319 is my favourite out of the three LHR departures BTW.

    And it means no more first or biz award available on this route to members of other *A carriers in foreseeable future.
