Singapore A380 Suites Awards Between Frankfurt & New York Wide Open

Singapore A380 Suites Awards Between Frankfurt & New York Wide Open

15

If you’re looking to cross the Atlantic next spring or summer, this is a fantastic opportunity…

Singapore Suites awards readily available

Singapore Airlines operates a flight from Singapore to New York via Frankfurt, with that Frankfurt to New York flight being a fifth freedom flight (meaning you can fly Singapore Airlines exclusively between Germany and the United States).

A couple of weeks ago Singapore Airlines had lots of award availability in Suites from New York to Frankfurt, and now the airline has a lot of Suites award availability from Frankfurt to New York, as noted by Monkey Miles. There seems to be the most space between late March and August 2022.

This is rare, since historically the airline doesn’t release much award space in advance in Suites. Best of all, there are many days with two Suites awards available.

Availability at the “Saver” level (which is what you should be looking for) costs just 86,000 KrisFlyer miles one-way, which is a phenomenal deal, especially given the lack of fuel surcharges. Note that Star Alliance partner award programs don’t have access to this award space.

There’s also award space all the way between Singapore and New York, though I’d be more skeptical about booking this:

  • Singapore is currently only open under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) concept, and even that is being partially suspended right now
  • It’s anyone’s guess when Singapore will open up on a more widespread basis, especially with omicron concerns
  • Personally I view the value here in traveling between the United States and Europe, since that travel should be very much possible next spring and summer

Earning Singapore KrisFlyer miles is easy

Even if you don’t have KrisFlyer miles, earning these miles is quite easy:

  • Most major transferable points currencies, including Amex Membership Rewards, Capital One, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Citi ThankYou, partner with Singapore KrisFlyer
  • There’s a further promotion whereby you receive Star Alliance Gold status if you transfer 250,000 points to KrisFlyer
  • Just keep in mind that not all transfers to Singapore KrisFlyer are instant, and it can often take up to two days; however, in my experience transfers from Amex are instant

This route will feature Singapore’s new A380 Suites

What’s especially exciting about this opportunity is that we recently learned that Singapore Airlines will fly its A380 with new cabins to New York as of late March. So if you book this flight, you should be seated in Singapore Airlines’ incredible new Suites cabin with just six seats.

I’d feel confident about this aircraft type sticking, given that Singapore Airlines is in the process of reconfiguring its A380 fleet, and at least 10 of 12 A380s that will reenter service already feature these cabins.

Bottom line

Singapore Airlines currently has lots of Suites award availability from Frankfurt to New York between late March and August 2022. Many flights have two award seats, and you can book them for 86,000 KrisFlyer miles. This is a fantastic opportunity, especially when you consider the lack of first class award seats available in advance across the Atlantic.

Do you plan on locking in a Singapore Suites award seat across the Atlantic?

    Found a seat in September, but sure am having a hard time getting Singapore to ticket it. It is listed as reserved, but when I try to pay, the website says its unable to process -- try later or call. No luck on either front. I keep getting the unable to process message online. Gave up on calling after 2 hours. WIll have to try again later.

  2. Johnathan Guest

    Are the phone reps unable to see these? I just called, and they weren't able to see the 86k fares.

  3. LK Guest

    I don't think the people leaving these comments are looking correctly. I easily booked dates for first / suites in April. Checked just now and still see WIDE open availability for saver throughout the year.

    1. LK Guest

      I should specify, FRA-JFK. I had to book business back to JFK, but that's perfectly fine with me.

  4. ECR12 Guest

    Can you add connections with star alliance partners out of FRA?

  5. Kirk Guest

    I now looked for 1-way FRA-JFK in May, but website insists on a return date. Suite is available.

    1. Tracey Guest

      You need to select one way within the calendar. I just book May 26th. Worked like a charm

  6. Kirk Guest

    I checked for dates in October I need and all were waitlisted. Booked in Biz

  7. quinten Guest

    no fuel charges? there’s €118 of charges on top of the miles….

    1. SQ51 Guest

      likely departure related taxes if they're on the westbound flight

  8. Jay Guest

    i just searched the entire schedule from May- Aug for suites award for 2pax, and they're virtually no availability. only some dates have waitlist option for saver awards.

    1. Tracey Guest

      I found tons of availability for two all throughout May and just booked May 26 for us.

  9. Matt Guest

    Singapore could use an iron by the looks of those sheets.
