People often complain about redeeming miles. But for me, part of the pleasure of flying on an award ticket is actually booking it!
Yes, you heard me right. But it’s not necessarily skill, but strategy. A little bit of ANA Tool, a little bit of SQ SQ on Seatcounter and a chit chat with the Chairman’s Preferred Desk. In the end? 3 Business Class tickets routed EWR-SIN-MLE-SIN-LAX-JFK on combo of Singapore Airlines and United Airlines PS First Class on LAX-JFK. Sounds nice. But what if you find out that your Skybed would suddenly be converted to this:
Singapore Airlines’ recent announcement confirmed rumors of EWR-SIN and LAX-SIN nonstop services going all Business Class. These flights will feature 100 new Business Class seats that are currently installed on Singapore’s A380 and 77W aircraft. I must say I am very excited about my outbound leg. Not only will be flying the longest flight in the world on one of the world’s best airlines, I will experience the newest and most luxurious Business Class offered. In the books it has to go down as a Royal Event.
So what does it mean to fly on single cabin plane where the cabin is not coach? Surely the amenities are wondrous, the service is exceptional and the clientele? Holds on to very high expectations, every single minute of this 18 hour 50 minute journey! Do I have any expections? Of course- just one. To not allow myself any sleep, to be awake each and every second of 67,800. I mean it has be captured not as a dream, but as a reality.
Singapore Airlines flight 21 departs with me on Monday, June 23, 2008 at 11:00PM. Look for the navy suit with the US Airways pin. In the end, it’s all thanks to US.
And just so we’re clear; a range extending 9535 miles seperates Newark, NJ and Singapore, all of which can be easily covered nonstop with a Singapore Airlines Airbus A345.
Have a nice clicK life,
