Default Singapore Airlines manchester to brisbane

Hi all

Has anyone done the Manchester to Brisbane route with Singapore airlines recently as I just wanted to know what the stop overs where.

On the website the route is showing as Manchester to Munich then to singapore then onto brisbane. I have tried different dates and it is always same route. i thought they only stopped over at singapore and was wondering whether this has changed or am I being a dimwit on the singapore site.

Thanks

Yes it changed. All MAN - SIN flights stop at MUC.

To compensate they gave you a better plane with the latest seat products.

I have a quote for Singapore to Sydney for the summer for £4,900. Three of the legs are on A380's. On Emirates if you opt for one A380 leg then its in excess of £5k.

There seems to have been a move towards more stops. Dubai to Sydney for us will most probably mean Bangkok and Singapore stops for an hour or so.

Can anyone shine a light on why there are more stops - or is it just my impression?

It's jut your impression, if anything there are more options with less stops now. Regional UK airports to east coast Aus with just one stop for example.

The Manchester Munich thing is a commercial decision I suppose - and the flight now goes more times per week but with the stop.

Anywhere that Emirates flies - so Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham all one stop. Then you've got Etihad too, just Manchester there I think (and Dublin). Not so good for you though as neither of them fly to Adelaide.

dont know if you have booked yet but have a look at EVA, they where great when we flew over before there business class is equivalent to everybody else's first class.

But you'll have to fly from heathrow but you'll save money compared to others.

have a look and see what you think

It seems to vary. My husband does the journey a few times a year and on some trips he has had to get off the plane, and then on others he stayed on. Not sure how they decide what is going to happen.
Singapore had cut down their flights from Manchester but now with the pick up in Munich they have gone back to flights every day.
