San Francisco – Hong Kong going back to 777W? What happened to the A380?

It was major news when Singapore Airlines announced to utilize their A380 on HKG-SFO instead of FRA-JFK.

I was just trying to find availability for a flight later the year and the route only came up on the 777W in Krisflyer. I double checked with Flightaware – it seems the A380 has it's last flight today (3/26) for the route. It will move back to the FRA-JFK route.

This may be a seasonal adjustments as transatlantic loads are enormous for the summer months. Lufthansa is restarting their A380 service from Frankfurt to San Francisco this week as well. So it seems I have to find a less luxurious option for my upcoming trip 🙁
