I’ve long been frustrated by the fact that Singapore Airlines refuses to release award seats in their “new” business class (which isn’t all that new anymore) to Star Alliance partners.
Well, I’m not sure if it’s a fluke or intentional, but award space is wide open in Singapore Airlines business class on the Airbus 380 between Singapore and Sydney through September or so.
I’m hoping this is intentional as Singapore Airlines probably isn’t filling all their premium cabin seats between Singapore and Sydney given the amount of capacity and competition on the route.
It’s worth noting that the space only shows up on aeroplan.com since ANA’s website systematically blocks any premium cabins on Singapore’s Boeing 777-300ERs, Airbus 380s, and Airbus A340-500 aircraft.
Regardless, it’s a fantastic product and well worth the miles if you can start in either Singapore or Sydney. I flew Singapore’s new business class on the 777 just recently (it’s the same product), and that review can be found here.
