Be The First To Fly Record Breaking Flight To L.A.

Be The First To Fly On Singapore Airlines’
Record Breaking Flight To L.A.

Visit and stand to win a pair of Singapore Airlines (SIA) Raffles or Executive Economy Class tickets on the inaugural non-stop flight to Los Angeles on 3 February 2004.

Simply indicate on the online contest page your choice of preferred in-flight activity during the longest non-stop commercial flight in the world, answer a simple question, and you could be on your way to the business and entertainment capital, on board SIA’s brand new A345LeaderShip aircraft.

The contest, which will run from now till 31 December 2003, was launched at the microsite of the ultra long-range A345LeaderShip, the latest aircraft type to join SIA’s fleet.

The SIA A345LeaderShip, which was unveiled in mid-October, will operate a 16 hour non-stop service to Los Angeles, and an 18.5 hour service on the return journey from Los Angeles to Singapore. This service will save customers between 1.5 and two hours in flight time over SIA’s current one-stop flights.

A similar service to New York will follow in August 2004. This flight will take 18 hours in each direction and will cut travel times by two hours from New York to Singapore, and six hours from Singapore to New York.

The A345LeaderShip will feature a premium two-class cabin with just 181 seats. The very spacious configuration will offer 64 Raffles (business) Class seats and 117 seats in the new Executive Economy Class.
