I am fixing to buy airline tickets for my parents who will be coming back to the USA from Philippines in few months. The plan is not finalized yet, so to just see what is going on out there with the ticket prices of different airlines, I was looking up for the possible flight they can get on.
I just realize that Singapore Airlines is now directing its flights from Singapore to Houston via Manchester! I think that is very cool! I have this sudden itch to go and fly 🙂 We used to fly via Moscow. Now the Moscow stopover is not shown on the available flights. The reason was because of the economy in Moscow. It is an oil City and the oil and gas industry today is pretty slow. But for sure there are other business strategies they are considering. So from that point, it makes sense to make the change. And besides, Singapore Airlines and United Airlines, which does not fly direct from Houston to Manchester, can make this a big advantage and code sharing with each other. Singapore Airlines has been restructuring or changing its flight network over these past couple of months. This new flight features the same three-cabin Boeing Airplanes, First Class and Business Class features as the old route.
The total travel time from Singapore to Houston on this route is typically 25 hours and 5 minutes. But if you love traveling, what is almost 25 hours? 🙂 But for my parents’ comfort, I am also considering shorter flights.
