Singapore Airlines has launched new all-Business Class services from Los Angeles to Singapore. This is the second all-Business Class route Singapore Airlines offers from North America, bringing the product to the West Coast after its initial launch in Newark last May.
The all-Business Class flights utilize newly reconfigured Airbus A340-500 that replace 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 new Business Class seat convert into a fully-flat bed. The conversion of all five of the Airline's A340-500s from a two-class configuration to all-Business Class seating is being carried out in phases. The Los Angeles-to-Singapore route all-Business Class configured aircraft operates on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while the route is flown with the standard, two class aircraft on the remaining days. Daily all-Business Class operations are anticipated by late September.
