Need to flight from Seattle to Male via Singapore for three business class
I have 300K+ of Alaska miles as well as around 200K+ of Chase Sapphire Reserve points – I can’t seem to figure out how to best do this trip. We are looking to travel 2nd to 3rd week January 2018.
That’s kind of tough as I dont think you have enough points and miles for 3 passengers in business class. Going thru Singapore could require an additional award as well.
Off the top of my head. Chase UR transfers to SQ for SEA-SFO-SIN-MLE. where the domestic leg is on UA metal. You can also transfer Chase UR to United to book but they dont have access to SQ award space, meaning you’d have another connection.
Do you have to go thru Singapore? Korean Air is a one stop option – SEA-ICN-MLE.
Are you planning to stop in SIN for longer than 24 hours? Or are you just planning to connect there?
Are you looking for just a one-way award to Male or is you`r plan to get an award ticket back also?
Just a general warning finding 3 premium award tickets on one flight can sometimes be hard.
We are hoping to stay in Singapore around 3 days since it is a long trip and we’re in that part of the world anyway – BUT it’s not a requirement.
I am willing to pay for one business seat if we can use points for the other twos.
