thanks @Carbonman , i happened to watch Sam Chui's video that has his interview with Captain Ray Chauwdury, he was told that the pilot has three option of route, over the north pole, through Atlantic , or towards Pacific, all depends on the time of the year and how the wind is doing.

In all my experiences flying the non-stop on the A345, they have never flown the Pacific route from EWR, as they would be flying into headwind.

Default SIA finds premium economy a tougher sell on new non-stop US flights

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...onomy-10929740

Singapore Airlines is facing no problem selling business class tickets on its ultra-long non-stop flights to the United States but is having to price premium economy seats very attractively, a senior executive said on Wednesday (Nov 14).

****

Singapore Airlines is offering premium economy fares as low as S$1,698 (US$1,230.17) return from Singapore to New York for weekday travel over part of the peak Christmas travel period, according to its website.

That is in line with economy class fares from premium rivals like Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways and Dubai-based Emirates that require a stop and a longer travel time, according to a Reuters search on Expedia.

Anyone know how's the crew rest period work during flight? Curious about how they rotate, since I assume SQ no longer deploys two teams of crews to operate this flight.

How’s the US immigration queue at EWR compared to other points of entry? So far I have found SFO to be the best late at night when the SIN-HKG-SFO SQ flight arrives.

For the pilots, there are 2 team each comprising of a CPT and FO. For the crew believed they have 2 rest periods in between the long flight. Do not think they ever operated with 2 sets of cabin crew.

I found it quite contrary regarding SFO. the immigration queue was usually very long at SFO when SQ2 arrives. There were multiple instances where we had to wait for 1.5+ hours, although that probably had to do with the peak season

I'd be interested to know as well, although I'll be experiencing it first hand in a few days so at least that will provide one data point. Arriving on SQ26 at JFK is a breeze, no wait whatsoever (unless the flight is delayed) based on a dozen or so observations in the past two years.
