Edit: Flights to Seattle, including the inaugural flight on 03 Sep 2019, are now bookable on the Singapore Airlines website.
As mentioned about a week ago, there was much speculation as to which US city Singapore Airlines was going to operate a non-stop service to. Seattle was rumoured to be next non-stop destination in the US to be served by the airline, and this was confirmed today (1 Nov 2018).
Singapore Airlines will operate the A350-900 aircraft for the route, and not the A350-900ULR variant as was expected. The route between Singapore and Seattle isn’t as far as the other US cities that the airline currently operates non-stop flights to. In fact, the non-stop flight between Singapore and San Franciso is also being accomplished with the A350-900 variant, and it makes perfect sense for the airline to operate this variant to Seattle.
The A350-900 aircraft is fitted with 42 Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy Class seats, and 187 Economy Class seats, which is not as premium heavy as the ULR variant. Flight SQ28 will depart Singapore on its inaugural flight on 3 Sep 2019 at 0925 in the morning, and will arrive in Seattle at 0925 in the morning on the same day. The return flight will operate as SQ27 and will depart Seattle at 1040 in the morning and arrive in Singapore at 1730 in the evening on the next day. The frequency of flights will increase from three to four times weekly from Oct 2019 onwards.
