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

Posted on March 26, 2013 by in Krisflyer

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 🙁
