united + singapore flights on one award

    If I want to fly from say Atlanta or Columbus or Greenville to Singapore, how can I do that on one award? Can I use Krisflyer miles for the entire thing, or MileagePlus for the entire thing?

    I know I can book from JFK-SIN, just am not sure how to get to JFK. Thanks!

    Technically you can but there are a few caveats. If you are trying to book with United miles you run into the problem of Singapore not releasing much if any premium cabin space to partners like United to book. However if you are OK traveling in economy you should be fine. Singapore can also book both carriers but the thing to keep in mind here is that SQ offer a 15% discount on flights on its own metal booked online. phone reps can also apply this discount if you are not able to book the flights online for some reason. The important thing to keep in mind here is that you only get the discount if all the flights are on Singapore metal so often you are better off booking a cheap cash or point positioning flight to get yourself to JFK. Good luck!!

    It might also price oddly using United miles, as Singapore routings have to be done manually, which messes up the new pricing engine.

    I would recommend other carriers if using United miles, honestly. It’s not really worth the time required to book it when you can easily fly Asiana, EVA, etc.
