Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes deals for July 2023 are live

It's the middle of the month and that means that Singapore Airlines has published its latest set of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deals. Unfortunately, however, if you were hoping for a respite from the very limited sets of deals that we have been seeing for what seems like an age, you should prepare to be disappointed.

Singapore Airlines unveils new 737 Business Class cabin

While yesterday saw Etihad unveiling its new A350 Business Class cabin, today has seen Singapore Airlines unveil the new Business Class cabin that it will be rolling out on its new 737-8 MAX aircraft in the coming weeks and that the airline is expected to retrofit to its existing MAX aircraft too.

The Singapore Airlines teaser was a big bust

Over the weekend, I noticed that Singapore Airlines had published a teaser on its Instagram account suggesting that something was going to be announced today, 25 October. Would it be a sale? Would we see a KrisFlyer promotion? Would another important VTL be opening up? Whatever was coming, I was excited to find out what it would be. Sadly, I should have kept my expectations lower than I did because what was announced really didn't deserve a teaser.

Singapore Airlines 777 Business Class Review (SIN – SYD)

While a good number of Singapore Airlines A380s offer the airline’s new long-haul Business Class cabin (which I experienced on my flight between London Heathrow and Singapore), a number of the airline’s 777 aircraft which operate to Australia still have the older-style Business Class cabin.

Singapore Airlines A380 (New) Business Class Review

For a cost of 105,000 KrisFlyer Miles per person (transferred in from my Amex Membership Rewards and Citi ThankYou accounts) and approximately $290 in taxes, fees and surcharges per person, I booked a one-way Business Class award between London and Sydney for Joanna and I…..and the new Singapore Airlines A380 Business Class Cabin was our home for the first leg of that journey.

Singapore Airlines’ Black Friday Sale Is Here! (USA – Europe Business Class $1,990)

Singapore Airlines has joined in the seasonal fun and is promoting a Black Friday sale for departures from various US cities. Interestingly, considering I consider Singapore Airlines to be the better carrier, these deals appear to be better than the Cathay Pacific Black Friday deals I wrote about yesterday.

Singapore Airlines Schedules Non-Stop Service To Los Angeles

We've known for a while that Singapore Airlines plans on using its new A350-900 ultra long-range aircraft to fly non-stop between Singapore and Los Angeles but, up until now, there hasn't been any news from the airline. That changed today with the latest announcement out of Singapore.

Review: Singapore Airlines A380 First Class Suites – Long Haul (SIN-LHR)

Last year I reviewed the Singapore A380 Suites experience on a regional flight between Hong Kong and Singapore but, while that was a very nice experience, it was the true long-haul experience in Singapore Suites that I've looked forward to trying out for some time. Singapore Airlines doesn't yet offer its new Suites Class on the Singapore - London route (that's coming on 16 February 2018) so the A380 that we flew in was equipped with the original suites....and these are the Suites that most Singapore A380s will offer for quite some time.

Singapore Airlines Changes Fare Types, Miles Earning Rates & More

Singapore Airlines has announced that it will be introducing new fare types, changing its fees surrounding award redemptions and tweaking the number of miles its flyers earn from 20 January 2018. Unusually for an airline making these kinds of changes not all the news is bad and how you view these changes will definitely depend on what type fares you book and how often you incur fees on award bookings.

Singapore Airlines New A380 Business Class – Full Details & Thoughts

Last Thursday Singapore Airline finally revealed what it plans to do with the cabins on its new Airbus A380s and, while a lot of focus has been on the new Suites Class product (which I took a look at on Friday), today I thought I'd take a critical look at the new Business Class seats on the Singapore Airlines A380.

Singapore Airlines New A380 Suites – Full Details & Thoughts

Singapore Airlines A350 Routes – The Definitive Guide

One of the most popular Traveling For Miles posts of the past 18 months was a post I wrote (and occasionally updated) detailing the Singapore Airlines A350 routes as the airline rolled them out with each new aircraft delivery. I have to admit to having allowed that post to go stale but, as people still seem to be visiting it in significant numbers, I thought I'd revive the post and bring it completely up to date (and hopefully keep it that way). So here we have it....

Rumor: Singapore Airlines Suite Awards Will Soon Be A Lot Harder To Book

Singapore Airlines Suites (the airline's First Class cabin on its A380 aircraft) are undoubtably one of the most highly coveted awards in the miles & points hobby. Etihad First Class awards are right up there too but there's something special about the Singapore Airlines suites that I think makes them just a little bit more special. Rumors coming out of Singapore now seem to suggest that booking this amazing cabin with points may soon be a lot harder.

A fifth freedom route/flight is one where an airline from one country flys between two other countries to which it is not related - these are usually add-on flights to complement a flight originating from the airline's home base. Examples of fifth freedom routes include Cathay Pacific's Vancouver to New York route (an add-on to the airline's Hong Kong - Vancouver route) and LAN's Madrid to Frankfurt route which adds-on to the airlines Santiago - Madrid flight.

Singapore Airlines To Introduce New Premium Cabins – Some With Fewer Seats

Singapore airlines has long been associated with some of the best premium cabins in the sky.

With the aircraft due into service in early 2016 here's an early look at the seating layout selected by Singapore Airlines for the latest addition to their fleet. I was interested to see if the airline would keep to its policy of not packing the economy class cabin as tightly as a lot of its competitors - so what did they do?
