    OMAAT Team/Fellow readers, need your help here!

    If flying to Bali from Miami…

    Would you rather spend 88k SQ to fly Biz LAX – SIN – DPS or 110k AA to fly Biz MIA – DOH – DPS?

    Key considerations:
    – I already transferred Points to SQ and issued tickets for 2 Pax so would have to cancel and keep those miles with SQ for future use (not worried about being able to use them).
    – I have the QR flights on HOLD and the miles readily available.
    – If flying SQ, would be staying in LA for a couple days before starting the journey.
    – Positioning flight to LAX is virtually free due to a voucher/travel credit.
    – Connection times are short and very similar 1-2hrs respectively.
    – Both options incurr minimal
    and very similar surcharges.
    – SQ Metal:
    LAX-SIN: A350-ULR (obviously!)
    SIN-DPS: New 787-10
    – QR Metal:
    MIA-DOH: A350 (non-suite)
    DOH-DPS: 787-8

    I haven’t flown any of these products so I’m really interested to hear your thoughts. I’m torn since my wife thinks it would be “easier” to take an ultra long-haul flight and then a short connection rather than take an ultra long-haul flight and then another long-haul flight, but the QR option would save us the trip to LAX.

    Happy wife – happy life, so I need to make sure I’m making the right decision. 🙂

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Cant really go wrong with either, though time and time again , Ben has said that QR’s business class is the best overall in the sky.

    Is this one way only? Can you fly SQ one way and QR the other way?

    Hi David,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I’ve read Ben’s comments regarding QR so I’m definitely more inclined to go that route, but the wife is for some reason leaning more towards SQ which is making me doubt my instincts.

    I already have a DPS-SIN-LAX return booked with SQ so this would definitely be a great way of trying both airlines and 4 different products 🙂

    Best,
