Singapore Airlines sent out an email today to its KrisFlyer members residing in Thailand announcing A380 service for two days in April during the Songkran festival.
Singapore Airlines A380 will serve the city on April 11th and 12th (Saturday and Sunday) and awards using KrisFlyer miles are available for the suites.
The Suites/F awards were pricing fine for Jakarta, but Manila had some issues due to overnight transit that the online system interprets as a stopover (would need to call).
The one-way saver award in F is 30,000 KrisFlyer miles – 15% online booking discount. The price using miles for both Manila and Jakarta is 25,500 miles.
Both Singapore Airlines and Thai (and Swiss too) used to have F class service on flights between Singapore-Bangkok, but those days are long gone.
If you are in Bangkok on April 11th or 12th and looking for a one-way award to Singapore, Jakarta or Manila, burning 25,500 miles for Singapore Airlines Suites + first class connecting flights is a good option.
