The Wall Street Journal is reporting that in June Singapore Airlines will launch all-business class service between New York and Singapore and LA and Singapore. How will they accomplish this? Brilliantly — they’ll keep the same A340 aircraft they currently use and strip out the economy seats, leaving only 100 business class seats for the $8000 round trip flight. Demand for business class was outstripping supply of the seats, so they’ll optimize their revenues without having to launch an airline-within-an-airline. Extremely clever.
