AMEX Platinum adds Saks credit (enrollment required), Tripsta in the doldrums?, United drops Los Angeles to Singapore service
– Tripsta which has been aggressive in discounting tickets through Momondo has suspended operations amid a spat with the Travelport GDS
Existing tickets should be fine but watch this space.
– United is cancelling the, still rather, new Los Angeles to Singapore service and moves the plane to the San Francisco to Singapore route as a second daily
Singapore Airlines is supposed to start direct service to Los Angeles soon (on a A350) and already has one. United simply does not have a lot of feed (i.e. connecting passengers) in Los Angeles. Their San Francisco hub is working wonders for Trans Pacific flights.
