Best day of the week to fly Newark to SIN?

Since I'll be limited to economy plus, can anyone give an opinion on which days tend to be the least full? I have full flexibility on particular days to fly, so if widweek coming and going is less packed then, say, weekends.

I really really like an empty seat next to me despite the fact that the armrests are fixed. It is a matter of clausterphobia (sp?)

thx!

If it is anything like LAX, Monday through Wednesday. Not that I've tried all 7 days, but that was what an FA told me

best bet is the early part of the weekdays. ie, Mon to Wed.

I flew the other way on a Tuesday - Raffles was 50% full, EY nearer 80%. Tuesday is normally the slowest weekday for business travel on many, many routes.
