One of the most common question someone new into redemption would ask:
ISN’T IT BETTER FOR ME TO DO A LONG HAUL ECONOMY/PREMIUM ECONOMY REDEMPTION INSTEAD OF REGIONAL/SHORT HAUL PREMIUM?
The answer is NO. The 2 rules I will tell my friends would be:
- No Economy / Premium Economy redemption
- No ADVANTAGE redemption (this however may work to your ADVANTAGE)
I have broken both rules before – and this was for a special reason – SQ22 Inaugural and SQ21 return.

With only one week to go, the cost for award redemption on Singapore Airlines is going up for both First and Business Class redemption (I shall only talk about Saver Award – lets be realistic, I doubt many of us can afford the Advantage Award ticket). The cost for Economy Class redemption remains the same and the margin between Premium Economy and Business is so small that Premium Economy is not worth considering (barring special circumstances).

Singapore Airlines is having a promotion for Krisflyer redemption on selected destinations for travel in month of November. There is a 30% discount to a few destinations (on both Economy and Business Class) listed in the table below.

With just one week to go, the mad scramble has started. Many long-haul flights to Europe and USA (both J and F) are either ‘Not Available’ or ‘Waitlist’. There are still seats available to Europe and even less seats to USA but one needs to be diligent in looking. Keep searching and you may get lucky (this include CPT/JNB too).

The day we all dread is here, Krisflyer finally gets devalued! I was anticipating this back in 2015 while I was pooling my miles for my USA trip. That didn’t happen fortunately. 2016 came and went and no news was good news. Seems like 2017 is the year the chop will be happening (23 March 2017 to be exact).
