Singapore to Boston/New York

Singapore to Boston/New York

  1. misterwi

    Hi
    I am bringing my family to Boston/ New York on 24 May.
    We are flying business class. Which airlines should we take?

  2. Gaurav

    What factors are important to you? Price? Service? Schedule? Flight time?

  3. misterwi

    I prefer new plane, good service and one stop.

    Both Cathay and JAL would offer one-stop service from Singapore to Boston, with Cathay Pacific having the more secluded seats. You could also check your options flying via Europe, but I’d hesitate to recommend any European carrier over Cathay Pacific for the service and quality of the hard product

  5. Gaurav

    Singapore will also offer you one stop service to JFK. I’d check Google flights to find what works for your budget. Between Boston and New York you’ll find most of the major Asian airlines will get you one stop flights with good service.

    Any opinion on Qatar and Emirates?

  9. David W

    QR and EK are both pretty good though just between those two, QR is superior. Etihad is also a great option – they fly a 787 from SIN to AUH and an A380 from AUH to JFK

    If you want to fly straight to Boston instead of JFK, Qatar will probably be your best option of the 3 Middle Eastern carriers, since they fly an A350 from Doha to Boston (and I believe from Singapore to Doha as well). If you’re willing to fly into JFK though, Ethiad’s business class looks amazing! Emirates doesn’t really stand up to either of those two, especially on the 777-300ER that they fly into Boston

    Cool thanks

    All great advice, I’d just add that timing-wise, flying Cathay through Hong Kong would be the shortest total travel time. It’s almost 1,000 miles shorter than flying through the Middle East. If your family has any little ones, I’d look closely at Cathay, if it’s in your budget.

    Hi,
    Do you know if Cathay use new planes?

  15. David W

    All of Cathays flights to the US are on a 777-300ER with the exception of Newark and Vancouver – an A350 is used on those routes. Cathay also uses the A350 on certain flights to Singapore. That’s the newest aircraft in Cathays fleet.
