Quick Thoughts

These are some excellent prices if you were looking to fly in Singapore Airlines business class, which is well known to be an excellent product in many cases. Business class to/from Frankfurt at just over 50K each way could certainly be an excellent deal and both premium economy and business class to Singapore and Tokyo look like great deals to me.

Those stringing together a longer trip will find plenty of other deals as well. Routes line Singapore to/from Johannesburg or Cape Town for 34.3K each way in business class seem like a fantastic miles-per-hour redemption. The flight to Johannesburg is scheduled for about 10 hours. I’d take 10 hours of Singapore business class for 34.3K if I could get it. Even Singapore’s regional business class product, which is what is pictured above, can be a treat. I flew that product from Brisbane to Singapore on a Spontaneous Escapes deal a couple of years ago. This time it costs 43.3K each way — or Perth or Darwin are 25.5K each way to/from Singapore.

The trouble with Spontaneous Escapes is that they are completely nonrefundable. This was long true and then they became flexible during the pandemic. I honestly hadn’t paid attention to whether or not they had run these promotions in recent months, but now that things are opening again I am not surprised to see them again. However, I am somewhat surprised that they are totally nonrefundable. That seems unreasonable in today’s environment where a positive COVID test could derail your plans in the swab of a nostril.

That said, if you are reasonably confident in your plans, these certainly are solid deals. Note also that unlike full Singapore award tickets, these promotional Spontaneous Escapes do not allow for a stopover. That said, you can make your own stopover at these rates and do pretty well.

Overall, I am glad to see these return. I hope to one day be positioned to take advantage of them again, though I’m not too keen on nonrefundable travel plans any time soon.

Good deal but like you I not not too keen on non refundable or no free cancellation with the current world climate.
Appreciate the post nonetheless.
