My guess is that the optimizer calculated that your query would not benefit from parallel operations.

Are your setting MAXDOP to 1 or is SQL Server configured that way?

Why would you assume the queries would be the same?  In fact the same query on the same server could have different execution plans with different data.

So why don't you tell us what is the real problem?  Do you think the lack of performance of the query is due to the fact that  parallelism is/ is not showing up in the execution plan?

It really depends.
