Amazing Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Award Sale

Amazing Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Award Sale

22

Singapore Airlines has just rolled out their latest monthly promo, which can be a great deal for anyone looking to redeem miles on Singapore Airlines.

While these are always a good deal, this is one of the better lists we’ve seen in a while, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given reduced travel demand across Asia at the moment.

Singapore Airlines Spontaneous Escapes

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program offers monthly “Spontaneous Escapes” deals, where they constantly have a list of flights that can be booked at a discount when redeeming miles.

Presumably they’re primarily discounting flights that they don’t anticipate being full, and where there’s a lot of award availability. This can be a really useful promotion. One major restriction to note is that Spontaneous Escapes awards can’t be changed or canceled once booked, so you’ll only want to ticket these if you’re positive you’re traveling.

KrisFlyer has just published their latest Spontaneous Escapes list, which has dozens of destinations on it, between the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir route networks.

This is valid for bookings through February 29, 2020, and for travel between March 1 and March 31, 2020.

This is an exceptional list, and I see great offers available within Asia, as well as to North America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and beyond.

Some of the deals that stand out most include the following:

  • San Francisco to Singapore one-way in business class for 66,550 miles
  • Dubai to Singapore one-way in business class for 34,300 miles
  • Johannesburg to Singapore one-way in business class for 34,300
  • Brisbane to Singapore one-way in business class for 43,400 miles
  • Sydney to Singapore one-way in business class for 43,400 miles
  • Barcelona to Singapore one-way in business class for 64,400 miles
  • Dusseldorf to Singapore one-way in business class for 64,400 miles
  • Rome to Singapore one-way in business class for 64,400 miles

There are some other really great offers, though those are some that stand out most to me.

Wow those are some really top notch deals. 66,500 miles for business class between San Francisco and Singapore?

Or just 34,300 miles for business class between Singapore and Johannesburg?

The restrictions for taking advantage of the offers vary by destination. Some destinations are restricted to specific flight numbers, and others are restricted to specific dates, but there’s great value to be had across the board.

With the new list, there are discounted awards in business class, premium economy, and economy. The discounts vary by route, though typically offer 30% off.

Singapore Airlines makes much premium cabin award space available exclusively to members of their own KrisFlyer program, so many of these are flights that you couldn’t book with partner airline miles.

Are there any KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes awards that you plan to take advantage of?

    Just flew MNL-SIN on A350-900 and SIN-DPS on 787-10 in Business.

    SQ's new Business seats are the WORST in the world as far as I am concerned. Not a big guy but I could not fit my shoulders in the seat between the "flying buttress" and the extremely invasive entertainment drawer. I felt that my arms were constricted, just like flying middle seat in economy. Shoulders hitting both sides and arms could only be straight...

    Will never fly this seat on a long haul. Luckily the above flights were less than 5 hours but a very painful 5 hours. Can't imagine trying to sleep with cramped shoulders and minuscule foot space.

    PASS on SQ

    @Jon

    Last month was AHHHHHHHMAZING! This month is just amazing.

  3. Jon

    These are the standard 30% "Spontaneous escapes" discounts which are on offer for a variety of routes every month. Not sure why they are considered amazing when the previous month carried the unusual and one off 51% discount.... :-)

  4. tolikfox

    @AG Agreed. These are really not that amazing. Will gladly pass on this one this time around lol

    @David

    Great way to live life in constant fear.

  6. Kitsilano

    @ David...
    "...risking their lives....'?

    Hardly! Perhaps in facts-skimmed U.S. media, but elsewhere:

    'Coronavirus causes mild disease in four in five patients, says WHO'

    Singapore and SilkAir just announced a revised schedule due to Covid-19 outbreak. It is on their FB page.

  8. David

    Seriously?!? Anyone flying to Asia with this coronavirus still spreading is risking their lives. Even the CDC have not determined how the virus is being spread...

  9. EC2

    @ Ben....These are just one ways as listed or return tickets for same flight leg mileage?

  10. WestCoastGuy

    You would think, with the coronavirus scare, prices would be lower with demand being lower. But no, they're worse than last month's offers.

  11. MDA

    Singapore has been really hit hard by the coronavirus wrt to tourism etc. lots of conventions cancelled, along with tourism cancelled. At one point residents were stock piling toilet paper, rice and noodles. There was a confirmed cluster at the grand Hyatt. I am staying there in a few weeks. Personally I think it is now the cleanest hotel around! With that I might see if I can get a points booking for my flight.

    my main airport is RDU. i had 60k miles with the Singapore air card. i could only use them if i flew from New York, San Fran or Houston so i couldn't find any award availability from RDU. they wouldn't transfer to another airline. one way from Newark to Singapore was 60k. so i just bought two nice Coach watches from their shopping portal. prob worst way i have ever redeemed miles...

    Errr major downgrade from last month's offers! SIN-SFO was ~45,000 miles in business class. I booked SIN-FCO for 45,080 on A350 biz (got the bulkhead too!) I wouldnt jump on these offers. Next month (or later) may be better!

  15. Elle

    Is there spontaneous escape offers every month of the year?

  16. Raj - PlanMoreTrips

    FYI I tried booking this promo last month SIN-SFO. Most of the flights are waitlisted, so you have to request them BUT the sale only counts for ticketed bookings. So you can be on the waitlist for 65k Biz but if you don't clear the waitlist before the promotion ends, then you don't the cheaper price. Really silly in my opinion. In the end, once I got off the waitlist, the promo had ended so they charged me the normal price.

    1. Ben (Lucky)

      @ Raj -- In fairness, this time around I see many dates that have "saver" seats that can be confirmed, without a need to waitlist.

  17. Sam

    SQ just downgraded their A380 on SIN-ZRH-SIN route to 777-300ER, I was booked with 2 awards tickets in the new Suites in May and now they are both downgraded to the good-but-not-great 4-across 777 seats. Guess it's a virus related drop in demand.

  18. Paul Griffin

    Still can't transfer from Amex Platinum Credit Card in Canada Membership Rewards to this, right???

    1. Ben (Lucky)

      @ Paul Griffin -- Correct, unfortunately not. You can transfer from the US program, but not the Canadian one.

  19. Reginald

    Not a big fan of the A350 biz class seats unless you can get bulkhead.
