Photo Comment

"Singapore '85" titles on the tail appeared nearly exclusively on the tails of long range aircraft in the mid- 80s for the new destination, but exceptions apply. Air Canada flew Toronto - London - Bombay (Mumbai) - Singapore and Singapore Airlines flew Singapore - Seoul - Vancouver and later Singapore - Vienna - Amsterdam - Toronto. Disagreements over Air Canada's 5th freedom passengers by British Airways out of London and Singapore's mainly into Toronto saw the bilateral cancelled in 1991.
