2PAXfly Takeout

It’s good to see Singapore Airlines regaining its mojo after the privations of the pandemic. These increases in services should put a little downward pressure on fares. It might be time to look around for some bargains in these services designed for the Northern Hemisphere Summer. Since most start in the first quarter of 2024 – there is time to do some planning.
