United have been reporting good loads including its its business class for its SIN-SFO-SIN flights and am sure United will do well for its SIN-LAX non-stop flights. If it follows that SIA A350ULR flights will soon be all business and PEY, then United will be the only airline with economy seats, which of course meant more affordable fares.

And passengers in UA Economy class (for most if not all sub-class fares, including B, E, G, H, K, L, M, Q, S, T, U, V, W, Y) can earn 100% KF miles on the flight.

Hooray.. I am thinking about flying with UA or BA for a trip next year to MSY. UA may just be workable with a one stop via either LAX or SFO...

The inaugural UA37 LAX-SIN is expected to depart shortly. Keenly awaiting SQ’s November event to see if we are given any additional information on their 2018 resumption of LAX/NYC.

Same here. I hope the UA's LAX-SIN nonstop will perform really well (not just load/demand wise), assuming no weight restrictions. The departure timing ex-LAX is very similar to back when SQ37 was there, coming back on the other hand, a late morning departure from SIN with a late morning arrival in LAX.

I can't wait for the 359ULR to come so they also resume LAX/NYC with it as welll. Next year is looking pretty exciting.

Even though we are already a few months past the launch date, I wonder how UA is doing with this route?

And this is of course no longer true

United is dropping LAX-SIN in favor of a second daily SFO-SIN flight effective W18. New schedule (2nd daily in bold):

UA029 SFO1055 2015+1SIN 789
UA001 SFO2240 0800+2SIN 789

UA002 SIN1000 0835SFO 789
UA028 SIN2220 2055SFO 789

United will now compete with the SQ flight in both directions, while SQ will have LAX to itself when the nonstop returns later this year.

Wonder what these changes will bring for SQ? Will SQ drop one of its SFO flights or have both go non-stop or withdraw from SFO totally?

SQ withdraw completely from SFO? Isn't SQ1/2 a lucrative route for SQ?

SQ isn't known to roll over to the competition. They won't give up without a fight.

Looks like SQ will have their own monopoly on the nonstop SIN-LAX market when they do relaunch it!

I think if anything it means that SQ won't switch a LAX 1-stop to SFO as some had discussed. I'd say SQ will keep things with SFO as they are.

Blueswan daily has an interesting analysis of the SQ and UA jockeying in the US-Singapore market. It speculates that SQ will do between 10 and 12 weekly frequency on SIN-LAX non-stop using the ULR and add less than daily second non-stop SIN-SFO using the ULR during the peak business days.

As pointed out in other forums, it is also interesting to note that UA can do double daily SIN-SFO with 3 planes. While SQ may not do this, technically it also can offer 14 weekly frequency (double daily) on the SIN-SFO using the 3 remaining ULR if the 4 early ULR are used for one daily SIN-EWR and one daily SIN-LAX.
