Singapore Airlines has launched a KrisFlyer economy class 30% discount award campaign (the online discount is usually 15%).
The offer is valid for travel between February 15 – May 26, 2016, and must be booked February 3 – 14.
You can access Singapore Airlines web page for this offer here.
Note that Singapore Airlines charges fuel surcharges on awards issued using KrisFlyer miles in addition to the actual taxes.
Here are the eligible routes:
Here are three fee examples:
San Francisco – Singapore
Singapore – Siem Reap
Singapore – London
Using airline miles usually for economy awards is a lose – lose proposition, although I do like BA’s Rewards Flight Savers for European flights. Using miles for economy can make sense IF you need to fly direct from Singapore when the paid flights are very expensive.
I have redeemed three premium Singapore Airlines awards using KrisFlyer miles in the past 6 months and you can read more about them here and here.
When in Asia, I have no problem using airlines such as AirAsia or Lion Air for regional flights up to couple of hours.
