What airline should I fly to Singapore?
I am flying to Singapore this December and want to take one of two options: Singapore Airlines and United Airlines because both have nonstop service. Which airline would you recommend for the best business class experience? Also which seat number should I choose?
It would help if you can tell us where you are flying from? Since you talk about nonstop service are we talking about SFO here?
In general Singapore Airlines have a far superior product in all classes.
The J on United B789 is in 2-2-2 config so your best bet would be a D or E since those seats have direct aisle access.
See [USER=4]@Lucky[/USER] review of the product here
For a review of the Singapore Airlines A350 see here:
If you flying in December one thing to keep in mind is the weather since you will be flying again the Jet-stream west bound, a grand circle route SFO-SIN is 7339 nautical miles which is very close to the max distance for the B789. The A350 has a bit more margin to go on.
United is well know for their B757 ops to Europe during the winter that historically had to land in Gander due to heavy wind going west, personally I fear this route will be another example of many unscheduled fuel stops.
