  • Fare is available for outbound travel August 31 through December 9, December 24 through December 31, and January 10 through March 31.

  • Fare rules require tickets to be issued by August 21 but the fare will not last that long.

  • This is a V fare that doesn’t earn miles if credited to United’s MileagePlus and earns only 10% of the flown miles if credited to Singapore’s KrisFlyer program.
