Welcome to our regular monthly breakdown of the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes offer. This time it’s discounts for travel in the month of November 2018 on a wide range of routes in Business and Economy Class.

Highlights this month include a repeat of the special ‘one class lower’ mileage rate on the new A350ULR flights to and from Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, this time for Premium Economy class only.

Singapore to Frankfurt in Business Class is available at 30% off in November – 59,500 KrisFlyer miles for this routing in the excellent 2013 Business Class seat. Several Australian cities have also made a welcome return with 30% off in Business. If you can stomach Economy class to or from London this 13-hour route is also up for grabs at just 26,600 miles.

What is Spontaneous Escapes?

A bunch of seats Singapore Airlines can’t fill in November even at saver award rates. The cost for them to have you occupying a seat which would otherwise fly empty is minimal (you’re still paying the taxes remember). In return they get to reduce the number of KrisFlyer miles in circulation which reduces liability on their balance sheet. Simple.

If you can fit one of these discounted redemptions into your travel plans at short notice – what’s important is that you’re getting a good deal compared to usual.

Do bear in mind of course that unlike a normal KrisFlyer redemption, any booking made under the Spontaneous Escapes offer is non-changeable and non-refundable.

It’s a long slog on these flights in Premium Economy, however these are good redemption rates.

Do bear in mind though as we said last month there is still aggressive pricing for cash tickets on these routes – Singapore to Los Angeles return in Premium Economy in November for example is available from S$1,446 return. Newark isn’t much more expensive at S$1,646.

You would also earn KrisFlyer miles for these itineraries, even with the Premium Economy Lite fare, and working that in to the calculation seriously erodes the value of each mile used in the promotion above to a level we probably wouldn’t be comfortable with, unless cash fares are more expensive on the specific dates you’re looking at.

Don’t discount it totally, but do the maths first!
