For this flight from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo (Narita), I chose Seat 1K only to realise that it differs slightly from the 777-200ER which I took previously - this flight is operated on a Beoing 787-9 Dreamliner. In fact, the JA870J that I flew on was so new that the cabin products were not even retrofitted. Read about my Business Class experience on Japan Airlines’ SKY SUITE III product!
You should know the drill by now - 30% off required KrisFlyer Miles to selected destinations on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir in July 2018 with the latest episode of Spontaneous Escapes. There may not be any public holidays in July but if you are thinking about a weekend escape, you will be able to travel in style (and by style I mean Business Class) from just 12,250 KrisFlyer Miles each way.
One of the many perks with traveling on Business Class is the airport lounge access that you get before your flight - some of these are impressive like The Private Room in Changi Airport (when you fly First Class or Suites with Singapore Airlines) or the Cathay Pacific Lounge in Haneda Airport. On the other hand, some airport lounges are disappointing and lacklustre - the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is one such example.
Even though I was very tempted to head back to the Cathay Pacific Lounge (and get a double serving of that delicious Wanton Noodles) in Haneda Airport, I decided to check out the JAL Sakura Lounge Skyview this time. Read my review of this beautiful oneworld alliance airport lounge here in Haneda Airport (HND)!
After spending two weeks in the United States, I made my way back to Singapore with a flight from Orlando to New York on Delta Air Lines. This was the second time (my first was from JFK to TPA) that I was flying on the airline in Domestic First Class so I was pretty clear on what to expect. I returned the car at the airport before making my way to the main building in Orlando International Airport (which is in no way as nice as Tampa International Airport) - getting through security took a while and there was no premium lane for passengers traveling in First Class (only Sky Priority check-in). Check out my review of Delta Air Lines’ First Class product!
The American Express and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer suite of co-branded credit cards launched back in 2016 but it was fairly unimpressive to earn its spot in my wallet (click HERE to check out which credit cards I physically hold in my wallet). While I was booking a flight this morning, I realised that there is currently a tender exercise for Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Co-brand & Corporate Co-brand Credit Cards. The closing date for this tender is 22 June 2018 and according to the request for proposal, 'the targeted launch date of the new products is in early 2019'.
In collaboration with fast-food chain giant, MOS Burger, Japan Airlines (JAL) will be launching the latest item on the collaboration menu on 01 June 2018 on select flights from Japan to Europe, North America and Australia - AIR MOS Cream Cheese Teriyaki Burger.
Singapore Airlines has just officially announced Bali as the next scheduled destination to be served by Singapore Airlines’ new Boeing 787-10 fleet, with services to begin on 2 July 2018. The Boeing 787-10s will initially operate SQ942 and SQ943 daily.
After much speculation in recent months, Singapore Airlines has officially announced that it will be launching the world's longest commercial flight with non-stop services between Singapore and New York (EWR) on the new Airbus A350-900ULR. Flights are scheduled to be launched on 11 October and the route will initially be served three times a week, departing Singapore on Monday, Thursday and Sunday.
I will be flying to Bali again in September and when I logged in to my KrisFlyer account today to select my seats (even though I have already booked this flight a long time ago), I realised that the seat map in Business Class has now been replaced with a 1-2-1 configuration (as opposed to a 2-2-2 one that I have previously taken). Since Singapore Airlines is planning to replace the older A330-300s with the new 787-10 Dreamliners, this can only mean one thing (I think!) - my flight in September is going to be on the brand new Regional Business Class product!
