Singapore Airlines is one of the world’s best carriers. They don’t just fly to Singapore – they also operate ‘fifth freedom’ routes between the U.S. and Europe. Right now their New York JFK – Frankfurt flight has up to 6 business class award seats available most dates over the next year.
It’s easy to get the miles needed to book these award seats, because points from Chase, American Express, Citibank and Capital One transfer to the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program. While you can’t book Singapore Airlines long haul business class flights using miles in a partner program like United MileagePlus, you can move points to Singapore Airlines and book these seats online. Straight to the Points sent out a deal alert on this opportunity.
Here’s current availability for four business class award seats in August on the route. Literally every day of the month there are at least four available:
- Singapore Airlines charges 81,000 miles each way per person for business class awards on this route, and there are no fuel surcharges. Taxes are about $30 for the U.S. departure and $130 for the European departure.
- If you book this month for travel in November this route is 30% off (with some dates in the first week of the month blacked out for this discount).
If you want to include connecting flights you can do so on Star Alliance airlines you can do so using Singapore’s Star Alliance award chart.
