Launching on 11 October 2018, the world's longest flight will be operated by Singapore Airlines between Singapore and New York (Newark) - the flight time is 18 hours and 45 minutes.

There has been some speculation for a while now but Singapore Airlines has just officially launched a new digital wallet and allows you to turn your precious KrisFlyer miles into instant purchases.

With the first A350-900ULR due for delivery in September, Singapore Airlines has just officially announced the operation of non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles from November this year. The flag carrier airline of Singapore has already announced the recommencement of the world's longest flight from Singapore to New York two months ago and together with this newly-announced service, Singapore Airlines will link Singapore and the US with 27 weekly non-stop flights by the end of 2018.
Starting from 01 July 2018, Business Class passengers on selected Singapore Airlines flights between Singapore and Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong can look forward to a new in-flight Chinese dining concept.

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.
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'.
