Earlier I posted about the great business class fares Qatar Airways published out of New York and Los Angeles to Singapore with their latest fare sale. Since Qatar Airways is a oneworld member, flying them is a great way to earn miles with any oneworld loyalty program, including American AAdvantage.
Earlier I wrote about a ~$2,050 business class fare from New York to Singapore, and a ~$1,950 fare from Los Angeles to Singapore. Fares were marginally less expensive if booking in pairs. However, it looks like it gets even better than that.
You can get 15% off your ticket price by using promotion code “VISA” and then paying with a Visa card.
The 15% off promotion was already published earlier, but best I could tell the discount didn’t apply to Business Promo fares. It looks like the discount now works on Business Promo fares, which are the cheap fares you’d want to book to take advantage of this offer.
Do keep in mind that the 15% discount is on the base fare, so it’s not actually a full 15% reduction on the ticket cost.
So, how much better are the fares with the 15% discount?
You can fly roundtrip business class from Los Angeles to Singapore for $1,789:
Or you can fly roundtrip business class from New York to Singapore for $1,815:
Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be an additional discount when booking a second passenger using the 15% off Visa offer.
In terms of earning American AAdvantage miles:
- The New York to Singapore ticket accrues 31,683 elite qualifying miles, 4,224 elite qualifying dollars, and 46,468 redeemable miles as an Executive Platinum member
- The Los Angeles to Singapore fare accrues 36,488 elite qualifying miles, 4,865 elite qualifying dollars, and 53,515 redeemable miles as an Executive Platinum member
This is an incredible deal, so head over to the Qatar Airways fare sale page to see what’s available…
