After 2 nights in The Big Apple, it is time to come back. A very short trip indeed, but this is all the time I could afford to be away from work.
I had both a confirmed advantage Business ticket and a waitlisted Business saver ticket. I was very much hoping for my waitlist to clear but by 12 October, I did not receive the clearance email. I know my waitlist was unlikely to clear. I had problem checking in online the day before flying as my saver waitlist was still active. I tried cancelling my waitlist and I had trouble doing it using the SQ app. I was prepared to go to the airport early to do it but by the night before flying back, my waitlist booking automatically disappeared and I could finally check in! On checking in, I noticed that the cabin is full!

Wow, after so many months of waiting the trip is over in just 4 days. It may be short on days, but certainly not short in fun and excitement! I shall start my review on how this trip came to fruition.

With October 11 nearing, Singapore Airlines will soon regain the title of the longest route in the world (at about 9,500 miles) with the relaunching of SQ22 and SQ21.

Finally, the flight all (almost) flight enthusiast and probably businessmen had been waiting for – SQ22/SQ21. This is the direct Singapore-Newark flight that was terminated back in 2013 due to the rising fuel cost and the old A340-500’s thirst for fuel sealed the fate of this route….. until now!
Singapore Airlines has announced the resumption of this route, but it will be using the more fuel efficient dual engine modified Airbus A350-900XWB (morphing it into the A350-900ULR).
