Spontaneous Escapes is back again for travel in September 2019. If you’re making some last minute getaway plans, you might well be able to save 30% off the usual KrisFlyer miles payable on a range of destinations with this regular monthly offer.

Background-4.jpg

As always you’ll have to book by the end of this month, 31st August 2019, and offers are subject to saver award availability. For non-stop USA flights in Premium Economy Class the same booking window applies, for travel in October 2019.

In total 30 Singapore Airlines destinations are offered this month, with an additional 20 SilkAir routes though some of those do overlap.

Best in Business

Aside from the most important fact that Spontaneous Escapes deals are non-changeable and non-refundable, we’ve listed the other restrictions towards the end of this article, so we can get straight on to the deals themselves.

It’s Business Class where you’ll usually get the highest return from your KrisFlyer miles balance, so here’s our ‘best of the best’ rundown in this cabin.

Which of the newest long-haul Business Class and latest Regional Business Class seats are discounted this month?

September sees a new regular year-round route for the latest 2017 Business Class seats on the new and refitted Airbus A380s, with daily Mumbai services. These have made it onto the Spontaneous Escapes list, but only for the outbound flight (SQ424), meaning you’ll have to pay the normal rate on the way home (remember the trick is to book two one-way redemptions in this case).

Nevertheless this gives you another option to try out these seats for 27,300 miles one-way, in addition to the Shanghai route which is a regular inclusion on the discounted list with these seats.

Japan flights are once again almost all discounted in Business Class for the third consecutive month, including flights to and from Tokyo itself. A great option for a September getaway, with the heat subsiding slightly from those August highs.

Brisbane on the A350 with the new Regional Business Class seats is a good deal at 43,400 miles each way, with two flights to choose from in either direction in September.

Singapore Airlines September 2019 Business Class discounts

Here’s the full list of SIA Business Class routes on offer for September 2019, including the Business Class seat types as well as the aircraft types.

This should help you choose better on your preferred route, as there’s nothing worse than getting a great deal, then stepping on board only to find an average seat awaits. Here are the seat type abbreviations for reference:

Singapore Airlines Business Class seat types
SQ 77W 2006J (miya.m) Window Pair J.jpg 12Aoverview.jpg 94A_2.jpg Seat 11A.jpg
2006 J 2009 RJ 2013 J 2017 J 2018 RJ

Some of our readers even choose their preferred route based on the aircraft or seat type, who are we to argue!

You’ll pay 30% off the usual saver redemption rates if you can book by the end of August and travel during September.

Premium Economy USA offers are poor value

Premium Economy seats are discounted again on non-stop flights to and from the USA on the Los Angeles route in October 2019, but these are seldom good value as cash fares in this cabin are still rock bottom.

2018 W A350ULR Seats 31AC
30% off Premium Economy seats on the non-stop Los Angeles route in October don’t make sense with sub-S$1,500 return fares available. (Photo: Singapore Airlines)

We found revenue return fares on this route from just S$1,499 on most dates in October, giving you just 1.6 cents per mile value. Even in the opposite direction, where return fares are S$2,000 or less provided you avoid a Saturday departure in October, 2.1 cents per mile is a poor deal.

Neither of those calculations account for the 17,500 miles you would earn when flying on a cash ticket, further eroding the value equation.

Important booking tip

We say it every month, but we still get asked most months! “I searched the right flight but the rate is not discounted!”

The Singapore Airlines website and app don’t make it obvious that the discounted miles rate is being applied.Don’t despair, just click the ‘Saver’ rate and then check the drop-down box, where the discounted rate will then be shown, provided your flight is applicable for the discount. Here’s how it looks:

DummybookSep19.jpg

We don’t know if there is some kind of technical restriction behind showing the discounted rate at the search results stage. In our opinion it would look good to show the discounted rate with some kind of “Promo” label next to it, and potentially increase uptake of the offer for those unaware of its existence, but alas this is how it works.

Spontaneous Escapes is every month

Another question we are commonly asked each month via email or Facebook, from around 12th onwards, is “will there be a Spontaneous Escapes offer this month?”.

Obviously we’re happy to answer but since February this year Spontaneous Escapes is now a regular monthly offer. Singapore Airlines has committed to releasing a Spontaneous Escapes deal every month, around mid-month for travel in the following month.The list may not be very long each time, but there should always be an offer of some kind.

The rules

Our ‘boring but important’ section. Spontaneous Escapes deals can offer you a significant saving if you’re able to make relatively last-minute travel plans, however there are some terms and conditions to be aware of before you dive in and book for the whole family.

Flights are non-refundable

Once booked, flights at these Spontaneous Escapes promotional redemption rates are non-changeable and non-cancellable. Use them or lose them!

Book one-way

All flights in the chosen itinerary must be included in the offer, otherwise the miles rate reverts to standard ‘Saver’ rates for the whole itinerary, with no discount. We recommend booking one-way legs so you can still save, for example on one direction of a return trip.

Play by the rules

Travel must be completed by 30th September 2019 (GMT+8), or 31st October 2019 (GMT+8) for the USA flights. That means for example if you’re flying back from Seoul to Singapore on 30th September you’ll find the 30% discounted rate available on all the eligible flights on that day, except SQ603 departing at 23:45.

That’s because it lands on 1st October, which is outside the offer window for that route.Worse still, as we mentioned with the one-way suggestion, if you’re heading up to Seoul on a Spontaneous Escapes deal a few days earlier and wish to take this 23:45 flight home on 30th September, the whole itinerary will re-price at regular saver rates.

That’s another good reason to book two one-way awards (Spontaneous Escapes on the way there, regular saver rate on the way back). This way you’re still saving 15% of the usual saver miles required.

The more obvious stuff

Here are the rest of the major T&Cs for the Spontaneous Escapes offer:

  • Redeem online by 31st August 2019.
  • Valid for flights from 1st – 30th September 2019 (Most SIA & all SilkAir routes)
  • Valid for flights from 1st – 31st October 2019 (SIA Los Angeles flights)
  • Valid for ‘Saver’ award tickets on selected routes.
  • Blackout dates apply on certain routes (e.g. Singapore to Manila blocked in Business Class from 1-3 September).
  • Stopovers are not allowed (as we mentioned above, think one-way redemptions with this offer).
  • Waitlist Saver redemptions are included in the discount, however the waitlist must clear on or before 31st August. If it clears after that, the regular ‘Saver’ rate will apply.

The full terms and conditions for this month’s Spontaneous Escapes, also including the full route list we have already outlined, is available on the dedicated landing page for the deal.

Summary

Japan flights remain widely discounted in Business Class this month, with 30% off a range of cabin products including the 2013 Business Class and the 2018 Regional version. With summer temperatures starting to become a lot more bearable in September, it’s a good option for a getaway at 32,900 miles each way.

Aside from Osaka and some regional cities, a number of the more popular Tokyo flights are also included.

There’s nothing to or from Europe this month, however Australia gets a look in with the Brisbane route on offer (2018 RJ) as well as Canberra (2013 J), as does New Zealand with Christchurch also boasting the 2013 J seats at 30% off.

A good range of routes is again available in the 2013 Business Class seat on the A350 and 777-300ER, including Beijing and Shanghai.

The Bangkok route is still your go-to for a nice introduction to the 2018 Regional Business Class, available at a discount on two of the daily flights in each direction. It’s 15,050 miles each way and is worth doing in our opinion if you haven’t yet tried it. Check out our full review here for a taster of what to expect on that exact flight.

The 2017 J product on the new A380 is only available on the Shanghai and Mumbai routes in September, but it’s good value at 27,300 miles each way on these 5 hour+ flights.

A decent selection of Premium Economy discounts now seems to be a regular part of the Spontaneous Escapes offer. Destinations this month include Beijing, Dusseldorf, Tokyo and Seoul.

We don’t usually endorse redemptions in this cabin as they are priced close to Business Class in many cases, despite the hard product being worlds apart. With 30% off though, you might make some of the options work for you.

Japan flights for example are 24,150 miles, which is less than the usual Economy Class rate.Premium Economy seats on the non-stop USA flights are available at competitive fares in October 2019, making that part of the Spontaneous Escapes deal generally poor value even with 30% off.

Premium Economy seats are discounted again for non-stop flights to and from the USA on the Los Angeles route in October, but these are rarely good value as cash fares in this cabin are still rock bottom – from just S$1,499 return on most dates that month, giving you just 1.6 cents per mile value.

2018 W A350ULR Seats 31AC

For SilkAir routes, the non-stop 6+ hour Hiroshima flight is good value at 17,500 miles in Economy Class, as is the similarly long Cairns route for 19,600 miles, though potentially more comfortable options exist flying Singapore Airlines to Brisbane and Osaka respectively in Economy.

In Business Class it’s a thin list for SilkAir, but Hiroshima is the biggest discount – available at 32,900 miles both ways.

Our tables above should help you to pick the right flight on all these routes to ensure you get the new cabin products (or at least ones you’re happy with) in Business Class, and the aircraft type of your choice in Premium Economy or Economy Class.

Remember if you’re unable to secure a return flight at the discounted rates, book two one-way tickets instead. You’ll pay the usual ‘Saver’ rate for the non-discounted sector but at least the whole itinerary will not be at the standard rate (a 15% saving is still welcome).

Finally, as we always say, KrisFlyer miles are usually hard earned so don’t let them go to waste. You can’t modify or cancel a Spontaneous Escapes booking once it’s made, so firm travel plans are a must if you’re going to snap up one of these deals.
