Oh well. Traveling is a privilege, not a right. As anxious as I am to get to those banana fritters at Maxwell Food Centre, they're not worth the possibility of getting stuck halfway around the world.
I'll need to put those on my list - I've been dreaming of the yong tau foo curry laksa and fresh sugarcane juice at the Ang Mo Kio hawker center.

Has anyone seen the thread on Business Insider? I'm booked on SFO-SIN on the VTL flight next week, though can't seem to find any information on the UA website stating that the re-launch has been pushed back.

https://www.businessinsider.com/inside-united-airline-strategy-to-become-us-flag-carrier-2022-2021-12"Singapore has suspended new ticket sales on vaccinated travel lane flights amid spikes in COVID-19 cases through January 20, 2022. United, as a result, has pushed back its relaunch date for the route from January 5, 2022, to January 19, 2022."

I saw a discussion of this in another place and the consensus was that the reporter was confused and that the flight will go on January 5th.

My daughter was on this flight. Out the door in 50 min from landing. Super fast and smooth.

Fantastic! Do you mind updating how long it takes her to get her covid test results? Thanks!

If you're positive they apparently call you, rather than email, to implement the quarantine order. Have had it happen recently to friends on VTL flights... Seems to be a rather large number of people testing negative on departure and positive on arrival at SIN, at least anecdotally. Not sure if they're catching it in transit or if Singapore is running PCRs differently than countries like US/UK (as they did in the past).

Do you mind sharing what's the "large number"?
