And Cathay Pacific will now start Seattle-Hong Kong non-stops beginning in April 2019.
(Delta will end its flights on the same route in October 2018.)

Could have sworn that had its own thread .... must be another forum, can't find it in PNW.

And of course AF and AM make sense with DL having a hub in SEA.

And now SQ

Singapore Airlines will start nonstop SIN-SEA service next September. Alaska will provide connecting services onward.

Wow.

Looks like Delta is in the crosshairs of everybody on Seattle - Asia routes.

Now if only AS will finish working on being able to redeem MileagePlan miles on Singapore (well, and Aer Lingus) that'll make for a nice reward option. Though at 16 hours, I'd certainly need to psych myself up for that, even in J or F.

Did the even longer LAX-SIN-LAX in J on UA, and even with UA's mediocre soft product found it OK. My friend's u/g request didn't clear and flew SIN-SFO in coach and lived to tell about it, though he grumbled a lot.

That is now do-able. I just booked an Aer Lingus itinerary using Alaska miles.

Along with the bombshell announcement that Alaska Airlines is joining the Oneworld alliance, American has announced SEA-BLR service beginning next year.
