Fare Alert: Singapore Air Business Class for just $1,999 Roundtrip!
Straight to the Point
Singapore Airlines is launching a new President’s Day Business Class Sale. You can book roundtrip flights in business class for just $1,999!
Flights must be booked by this Sunday, February 20, and the eligible flight period is between June 1, 2017-August 31, 2017. The following roundtrip routes are eligible for the discounted fares:
- Los Angeles-Seoul
- Los Angeles-Tokyo
- New York-Frankfurt
The maximum destination stay for these tickets is one month and only flights between Sunday-Thursday are eligible for the discounted rates. I just did a quick search of some sample fares between Los Angeles and Tokyo and availability looks good. Keep in mind that discounts like this tend to go fast so if you’re interested, book asap!
$2,000 for a roundtrip business class fare between these routes is a fabulous deal! Singapore is one of the best airlines in the world and their business class seat and service is great. I recently flew Singapore business on the new A350 from Singapore-Johannesburg and loved the product. These seats generally sell for thousands of dollars more, so if you want to splurge this is a good opportunity. Remember that you can credit these flights to a Star Alliance partner frequent flyer program like United and get award and status miles based on the business class booking fare (which is more than what you get for economy).
Neat Way to Pay
- AMEX Business Platinum Card-This card has quite an interesting perk that may be useful here. You can charge a business class ticket to your card and then use your AMEX Membership Reward points to pay it off. AMEX will refund you 50% of the points you redeemed for your ticket. In this case, you would charge the $2,000 ticket to your Business Platinum card, redeem 200,000 MR points to pay for that charge, then earn 100,000 points back. So you effectively spend 100K AMEX points for a roundtrip business class ticket on Singapore Airlines-not too shabby. And remember that since the original ticket is a paid fare and not an award flight, you still earn all the award and elite status miles from the airline!
