The WHOLE world appears to be on sale right now for New York flyers and honestly as an L.A. Guy I’m becoming to get somewhat jealous! My mailbox was overwhelmed today with notifications of airfare deals to locations all over the world on GREAT airlines offering 5 star products at 3 star prices! I even got a few emails from discount air carriers informing me that flights to/from NYC were on Sale!
So NY residents, flyers, and people who are just looking for a great deal/mileage run or summer vacation here’s a story for you!
1st off Singapore Airlines is celebrating its 20th anniversary with service to New York with an 11 day sale and includes discounted tickets to Europe and beyond! Right now One can fly the A380 from JFK to Frankfurt for only $799 round trip if purchased by July 25. Furthermore you could choose to go further and connect to Singapore for only $1199 from JFK! Singapore also announced sales fare for just $1299 for two stop service to Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, or Indonesia. However, be warn seats are VERY limited and the cheapest I could find to Singapore in August was 1379, which was still a few hundred less than the competition, however in the Fall I could find cheaper fares via air china, Delta, United, and other less glamorous carriers. On a quick search for flights to FRA, I found many dates in Sept that Singapore Airlines was the cheapest, coming in at $791 ($8 less than advertised price).
However for the mile junkie, when booking BE AWARE that most of these fares are in N class only receiving 50% of KrisFlyer miles and 0 miles on United MilagePlus. Feel Free to compare prices. I found the best deals on priceline.com and orbitz.com
