Help with minimum connection time in SIN (CX or SQ to EY)

Help with minimum connection time in SIN (CX or SQ to EY)

  1. SeattleTodd

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone possibly help me figure out the minimum connection time in SIN from either CX or SQ to EY?

    Thanks so much,
    Todd

    I’ve not been through SIN in a few years, but from memory the last time I did it, we had just under 90 minutes and were comfortable. As to a minimum, I dont know that I would want any less than 45 minutes – which assumes just me traveling with light or hand luggage. Etihad is in T2. Singapore is T2 and T3. Cathay is T1.

    Per the link above, the Skytrain may be out of service due to redevelopment works (there are buses as well), which is something else to consider.

    Singapore to Etihad:

    So looks like an hour is good either way, but Singapore is a great airport for a longer connection too.

    Thanks so much [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER]. Do you know why neither of the following flight pairs appear in search results?

    CX735 HKG-SIN 2:25pm-6:20pm
    EY473 SIN-AUH 7:20pm-11:20pm

    SQ863 HKG-SIN 2:10pm-6:10pm
    EY473 SIN-AUH 7:20pm-11:20pm

    The CX to EY pair has 1 hr connection, and the SQ to EY pair has a 1hr10min connection. I’m really glad to hear they are indeed legal connections, but they don’t appear bookable. I’m leaning toward an AA award for the CX/EY pair so I suppose I could just call them, but any ammunition in my favor would be helpful! 🙂

    Thanks!

    If ExpertFlyer is accurate (and it generally is), then either should be bookable, though OTAs may have their own restrictions.

    I would definitely try to get them on one ticket though, so booking through AA would likely be the way to go.

    Thanks so much [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] — really appreciate your help. I came up with another crazy idea — would you mind commenting on my subsequent question when you have a second? Thanks!
