Everyone loves a good flight deal right? The only thing I think can top it off is if it’s in a premium cabin, and in this case, this is precisely what I’m talking about.
Unfortunately for us Australian travellers, we don’t often get fantastic deals like the US or Europe, and that’s for several reasons. But luckily for us, Asia is a lot close for us to get to making this deal a little more appealing for passengers that can travel and have flexibility.
Flyertalk user SightseeMC posted a deal the other day that was too good to go unnoticed and would be worthwhile talking about. Singapore Airlines currently has some fantastically priced return premium economy tickets departing Singapore and arriving into Los Angeles.
It’s worth noting that these exact flights can often be priced well over 3k+, but if you use the right flight combinations, you can get these flights almost half the price.
- You want to ensure you double-check which booking code your flights fall into as this can affect the overall amount of miles and redeemable points you’ll earn
- You have to stay over five days to make the flight combinations work

- If you were to credit these flights to Singapore’s program, you’d earn a total of 17,526 miles for the return trip.
- If you were to credit these flights to Virgin’s Velocity program, you’d earn a total of 300 status credits for the return journey.
Singapore Airlines’ A350-900 contains a total of 235 seats which are spread across three cabins, business, premium Economy and Economy class. More specifically, there 24 Premium Economy seats on each aircraft and their seats are laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration. Every seat in premium economy features a pitch of 38-inches and a width of 19-inches.
If you are in the market for flights to the US and are a little flexible with staying somewhere for a few days, this is a great deal to jump on, I’m even looking at doing one to retain Velocity platinum.
