Quick Thoughts

This is certainly a good deal for one of my favorite ways to fly, but there are a few things to note:

  • You can not change or cancel these awards. That’s a bummer.
  • Singapore KrisFlyer miles are very easy to accumulate. You can transfer from Amex, Chase, Citi, or Capital One.
  • Air Canada Aeroplan only charges 60K for the same route. Unlike other Star Alliance partners, Air Canada has access to a ton of Singapore availability. I mention this because it is frequently possible to book this route through Air Canada Aeroplan for not much more (and at the 60K price, you could change or cancel for $150 CAD per passenger). And of course that pricing is not contingent on flying during February. Aeroplan is an Amex, Chase, and Capital One transfer partner.
  • Singapore KirsFlyer has a hard expiration policy. Miles expire after 3 years, full stop. Use ’em or lose ’em if you transfer to Singapore
  • Other routes are also on sale. If you’re looking for a deal connecting dots between other regions Singapore serves, it can be worth taking a look at the sale.
  • Not everyone loves the Singapore Airlines seat. Personally, I love how wide they are and I like the padding. But unlike other business class seats, you can not recline all the way flat — converting the seat to a flat bed requires folding the back of the seat forward, so when you want a bed it is 100% flat or not that close to flat. Again, I like it, but I know others who really like to tweak their recline preferences don’t.

All that said, if you’re planning to travel to Europe in the next two months or on another route served by Singapore, this deal can obviously be worth a look. I flew this route last year and I love the food and service on Singapore, so I wouldn’t hesitate to use this as a jumping off point on a trip to Europe.

how much are the “taxes and fees”?


So with the chase to Aeroplan bonus ending today, you could also do the usual 60k for 50k (60/1.2=50), and like you mentioned, have the option to cancel for 150. Just an FYI for others, I suppose.
