Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has published a new list for the Spontaneous Escapes Redemption Specials valid for travel in October/November 2018 that need to be booked until the end of 30 September 2018.
Singapore Airlines sent out an email last night advertising these city pairs as part of their latest Spontaneous Escapes and at 65,000 miles for Business Class that might be the cheapest way to book the West Coast to Singapore flight.
You can access the current list of Spontaneous Escapes here.
The following are the Singapore Airlines destinations and pricing for the promotional routes to North America in both classes of service offered (Premium Economy / Business):
Singapore to New York (EWR) is the longest commercial flight in the world and I’m not sure I’d want to fly on that route even in SIA’s very respectable Premium Economy Class. That’s just unnecessary torture but if someone is up for it then 40k for that route is a bargain as well. Otherwise the Business Class routes are clearly the best value here.
These are the other specials on alternate Singapore Airlines routes:
I was a bit disappointed at first when KrisFlyer devalued their award chart and culled the online booking discount but I have to admit that availability for mileage awards using KrisFlyer miles is pretty good and even for First Class and Suites it’s possible to book tickets even for members without any status. The taxes and award associated fees are also quite low.
These promotional awards make KrisFlyer somewhat competitive again especially given the very low surcharges on SIA issued award tickets. If you like to book one of the ultra longhaul routes then this might be your best bet to get the flights on the cheap.
