Now will we see SQ flying to alternative LON Airports?

The UK and Singapore governments have now signed their much heralded fully open skies agreement that comes into effect coincidently on the same day as the free'er skies between the UK and the USA.

Based on this i believe we shall see SQ flying to LGW (as CX used to and as EK does today) as well as possibly STN if they decide to get into the bulk game using a high capacity A380 as has been mooted for EK's Emirates Express service. Moving at least one flight to another airport will allow SQ to service the LHRJFK market that they have long coveted.
