I’ve been playing around with a possible trip to Asia this year, and as such, I’ve been banging around a lot of different award redemption options – ESPECIALLY with the AA devaluation on March 22. What did I come across??
Flying 1st class to Hong Kong for a mere 70,125 + $37.40. Say Wha?!??!
Business Class is 63,750 + $37.40 Double what what!
Now granted, this isn’t in Suites, but it is in the newly refurbished First
( thanks Singaporeair.com for the snaps)
Here is the other thing tho…What if you fly through LAX? If you do, you need to route through NRT and SIN…are you getting my drift, yet? OK, if you’re not then what I’m hinting at is you could fly on Suites to Hong Kong for the price of a direct flight in normal First…This is a total loophole – and one that you may even be able to work in a Stopover in Singapore with the right rep on the line. That would be even nuttier.
In case you are unfamiliar with Suites…
I love finding little work-a-rounds and sweet spots and hope someone can take advantage of it!
