Many folks consider Singapore Airlines A380 First Class suites one of the best airline experiences in the world. You get champagne, caviar, designer pajamas, and a private, enclosed suite with a lay-flat bed.
And via Lazy Travelers, you can now find First Class suite award seats from the US to Singapore! Or to Frankfurt or Tokyo. Normally, there are very few available.
This is great news! It’s easy to earn Singapore Airlines miles because you can transfer points from all 4 flexible points programs.
You can use Singapore Airlines miles for an amazing flying experience instead of buying an expensive ticket that you probably wouldn’t want to pay for!
Fly First Class Suites to Singapore
There are only 2 US cities that offer First Class suites on flights to Singapore including:
- Los Angeles (via Tokyo) for 91,375 Singapore Airlines miles
- New York – JFK (via Frankfurt) for 93,500 Singapore Airlines miles
But you don’t have to fly all the way to Singapore. You can travel between:
- New York and Frankfurt for 57,375 Singapore Airlines miles
- Los Angeles and Tokyo for 74,375 Singapore Airlines miles
The prices above include the 15% miles discount for booking online.
In the past, it’s been almost impossible to find saver level award seats on Singapore Airlines.
But, in April and May of 2017, you can find open award seats on both routes.
Here’s an example of a one-way award seat from New York to Singapore in April 2017.
First Class suite tickets can cost more than $8,000 if you paid cash!
So, flying in a luxury First Class suite using miles can be a great deal!
Available First Class suite award seats don’t last long! You’ll usually see available seats last minute or up to ~11 months in advance of your flight.
You can only book Singapore Airlines suites using Singapore Airlines miles (not through their Star Alliance partner airlines like Air Canada or United Airlines).
Singapore Airlines miles are easy to get because you can move points from all 4 transferable points programs to Singapore Airlines at a 1:1 ratio:
Note: Depending on the program, it can take 24 hours or more for your points to transfer to Singapore Airlines (2 to 12 days, or longer, from Starwood Preferred Guest). So be aware the award you want might disappear if you’re waiting for a transfer!
