If you don’t already know about Singapore Airlines “Spontaneous Escapes“, you should really make the acquaintance. The monthly offers take standard points rates between two places and slash them by up to 40%. Like the usual 70,000 points each way for premium economy between New York and Singapore (world’s longest flight), aboard the stunning Airbus A350-ULR – that’s now just 40,000 points one way. Los Angeles and San Francisco are also included, starting at just 38,000 points one way for premium economy, and 65,000 points for business, compared to the standard 88,000. LA to Singapore is the fourth longest flight in the world, and also uses the Airbus A350.
