Last week I wrote about Singapore’s announcement that they’d be putting the Airbus 380 on their Singapore to San Francisco (via Hong Kong) route for their winter schedule, and this presented an opportunity to redeem Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles for Suites Class, given that there was a lag between the time the announcement was made and the time the system was actually updated to reflect the new aircraft type.
I even posted earlier this week about how surprising it was that they were taking so long to update their schedule. Singapore Airlines usually updates it within hours of making an announcement, though this time it took more than a week.
However, the wait was well worth it, given that I now see the following seatmap for one of the flights I have booked in Suites Class:
Quite possibly my best use of American Express Membership Rewards points ever!
So, can we get a quick roll call going? How many of you are booked in Suites Class on SQ1/2, either because you’ve booked using KrisFlyer miles in the past week or had gotten in on Singapore releasing all their award availability a few weeks back, and just happened to book SQ1/2 during the time it’s scheduled to be operated by an Airbus 380?
