I'm pretty certain ICN-LAX will be dropped and they'll keep NRT-LAX

NYC
ULR + 77W from LAX for 55 seat increase (again assuming 170 seat ULR)

SFO
Hmmmm.... I really wonder if the ULR will show up on that route.
If it does, perhaps ULR + A380 but where will it come from?

looking forward to what others think ...
This recent article from December suggests SQ has no intention of down-gauging JFK once the nonstop service resumes. SQ25/26 also provides critical capacity on SIN-FRA vv.

Interestingly, while it confirms NRT-LAX will stay, there's no mention of ICN-LAX. I would venture to guess we'll see a new North American destination ex-ICN.

I guess this is true and is implied by the author, but I'm always very skeptical when I read anything- two things are stated- 1. SQ are committed to the FRA-JFK route, and 2. It is the only route to the US still operated by the A380. These are two independent statements and if SQ were to downgauge SQ26/5 to a 77W, both statements would still be true.
