October’s KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes are now live…and they’re pathetic



It’s the middle of the month and that means that Singapore Airlines has published its latest set of KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes deals and, frankly, the airline may as well not have bothered. Most of this year’s Spontaneous Escapes deals have been less than stellar but this set plumbs new depths that I didn’t think we would see. Read on only if you’re ready for serious disappointment.

Headline terms & conditions

  • Book by 30 September 2022
  • Travel between 1 October and 31 October 2022
  • Get a 30% discount on select award bookings
  • One-way and roundtrip awards are permissible
  • Taxes and fees will be charged

Full terms and conditions are reproduced at the end of this post

The deals

Ordinarily and at this point, I remind readers that what they’ll see below are just examples of the deals that are being offered and that more deals may be available…but not this time.

There are so few deals being offered in this month’s KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes that I have published the full list.

Note: The costs you’ll see indicated below are for one-way travel excluding taxes and fees.

Bottom line

If you happen to need to travel to or from one of the destinations that are listed in this month’s Spontaneous Escapes, a 30% discount on award travel is probably going to seem like a nice deal to be offered. If, however, you’ve been waiting for KrisFlyer to offer up some October Business Class discounts for travel to/from Africa, the Middle East, North America, Europe, and/or Australia, you’re probably going to be as disappointed as I am with what Singapore Airlines has come up with. Let’s hope for better next month.
