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.

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.

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 October 31, 2019, and for travel between November 1 and November 30, 2019.

This is an especially good list, with dozens of destinations across Asia, Australia, Europe, the US, and more.

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

  • Singapore to San Francisco one-way in business class for 66,500 miles
  • Hong Kong to San Francisco one-way in business class for 62,300 miles
  • Singapore to Dusseldorf or Frankfurt one-way in business class for 64,400 miles
  • Singapore to Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, or Sydney, one-way in business class for 43,400 miles

Those are just some of the best long haul deals, though there are a lot of deals for travel within Asia, which can represent an excellent value. You’ll want to take a look at the list for all of the details.

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, and in some cases offer up to 50% off.

  1. Question:

    You always talk about SIA offers, but you never mention the miles offers from LH departing from the US for 55k miles Business class return or 70k from Europe to Asia.

    Also there is a co-branded Barclaycard with Lufthansa. I have been following you for years now, but have never seen any mention of this CC. (50k miles for 3k spend as of today)

    I find the prospect of paying 130k miles with krisflyer to FRA from SIN a significantly worse value than the 70k roundtrip with lufthansa miles (or if you consider the surcharges of 600€, given your valuation LH should still be a better deal, because SIN carges 100USD still). I get that you can’t earn as many miles on miles and more as you can with Krisflyer and their partner programs but it seems like LH doesn’t offer the worst value on the market here.

  2. As ex-Solitaire I have to agree with Marv that the BC seats are super uncomfortable, both the ones they use on 380/777 as well as the old regional ones on the 330’s.

    Service on SQ is great but I just can’t find the seats comfortable. Give me TK any time.

  3. Just booked SIN SFO for 66000 KF miles plus 110 sgd, SQ2
    I had it waitlisted from KUL when it cost 95000 plus MYR..
    saving of nearly 30 000 KF miles, easy to get to SIN from KUL, i might even take a bus and break the journey in Malacca..(Hotel Puri, Hotel Equatorial and Nyonya food)

  4. Am I the only one who has never been blown away by SQ J or even F service? Every time I fly it ranges from kind of lacking to fine at the best. I have had so much more luck with QR, OZ, JL, TG and even MH over SQ. Between lacklustre service and those terrible seats, along with the horribly outdated SilverKris lounge in the otherwise gorgeous T3 (where there aren’t even outlets??) I am in no hurry to get on another SQ plane anytime soon.

  5. Is the SIN-SFO only available one way, or vice-versa?

    I’ll take SQ in Business anywhere/anyday. Still the best in my opinion.
