Singapore Suites are one of the holy grails of frequent flyer redemptions. There was a time that Singapore charged about a million miles for Singapore – Los Angeles roundtrip.
They started making seats available to their own members for the A380 suites class at the saver level a couple of years ago.
A handful of routes started making two seats available to Singapore members only a year ago.
But did you know that there’s a route where availability is wide open — and not just using Singapore’s own miles, but seats that are bookable by their partner airlines, too?
This won’t be extremely useful to the vast majority of readers, I suppose, for a handful of you this will be an amazing tip.
Here’s a search using Aeroplan miles (so partner availability) for the Delhi – Singapore route over the next couple of weeks. And it’s a search for eight seats.
Eight seats at a time, of course, is all that Aeroplan will show. So it’s possible that there’s even more inventory available than that (the cabin accommodates 12 passengers).
Booking with Aeroplan isn’t the idea — it’s just an example to show partner availability. Aeroplan doesn’t allow one-way redemptions when not starting or ending in North America.
Using United miles you’ll have to call, since United decided to stop showing Singapore Airlines award space on its website. Lifemiles are also an option, of course.
