Update, 12/26: There is now wide open A380 first class suites saver award space from Frankfurt to JFK from the end of March through December!

 

Unfortunately the 20% AMEX transfer bonus is now gone, but it’s still a bargain at 86K miles per person. You can also still earn Star Alliance Gold status with a 250K transfer.

Note that the flight departs Frankfurt at 8:35am, so you may need to fly to Frankfurt the night before if you can’t find an early morning flight from your origin city. Award space from JFK to Frankfurt is mostly gone at the saver level.

Update, 12/16: Singapore will exclusively fly their new A380 suites (pictured below) between JFK and Frankfurt when they return the A380 to the route in March.

Unfortunately the incredible confirmed saver availability that was available when this was posted several days ago is now gone, so congrats to everyone who booked it then!

There is still some availability for 1 or 2 first class suites on select dates from Frankfurt to JFK from September-December.

There is still waitlist availability for 86K saver awards and confirmed availability for 140K miles with expanded availability awards on more dates in both directions.

The new suite seat map shows 6 first class suites instead of 8 first class suites. 1A/2A and 1F/2F can be turned into double suites as pictured below:

Singapore is one of my favorite airlines, with top-notch service in every cabin.

Their private first class suites, with beds for 2, are one of the most aspirational awards around.

Singapore only makes long-haul premium cabin awards available to their own members, but finding saver award space can be a challenge.

Currently Singapore flies a 777 between JFK and Frankfurt, but that will move to daily A380 service starting March 28th.

Saver award space is wide open from March through November for 86K miles each way in a first class suite with no fuel surcharges.

In addition to scoring a first class suite, you can also get a 20% transfer bonus from AMEX and get Star Alliance Gold status for the transfer!

People are reporting that AMEX points now typically transfer instantly to Singapore.

That drops the effective cost from 86K to 71,667 AMEX points. With 2 round-trips transferred from AMEX you’ll also have Star Alliance Gold status.

 

You can fly from JFK to Singapore via Frankfurt for 132K miles (110K AMEX points) in a first class suite. However that assumes things will be open for when you want to fly:

 

Singapore miles expire after 36 months and they can’t be extended with activity, so you need to use them or lose them.

This was the Singapore suite Mimi and I flew in from JFK to Frankfurt en route in Paris in 2012, booked with 57,000 Singapore miles:

 

 

And here is the updated Singapore A380 suite that the A380s are in the process of being converted to:

Will you book any Singapore first class awards?

Does it make sense to use them to fly to Israel with a stop in Frankfurt?

can

same question!
there is a 2 pm flight from FRA to TLV so you basically have a 4 hour stop over but its usually pretty expensive to book one way
round trip is a little cheaper

John

Woohoo 3 seats booked for only 215k! I feel like I might as well just transfer a few more points for gold and future use ..
This site is a tricky thing…I bet everything will be gone tomorrow, but also wouldn’t have jumped on it if not for your tweet

Aryeh

Does it make sense to fly with my 18 month old? Can I fit a pack n’ play or would that be the biggest waste of miles ever?

J

Infant award will be expensive as well

Yoni

Are there any other destinations in Europe?

Moshe

The link for 20% isn’t working for me. Amex site shows as 1:1.

Jew

It’s targeted. (Though most accounts seem to have it)

Just remember that krisflyer possibly has the most stringent rules together with strict enforcement. When this is combined with miles that are use or lose I do not recommend it.
I used miles that were near expiration to book a trip on SIA. When the date got close there was a huge blizzard and SIA at JFK somehow does not manage weather delays well, in my personal experience. I called to change my flight for a two day delay. The agent told me she would do everything, that the next morning it will all be arranged. The next morning nothing was done but my miles were gone. After much research it turned out that the process involved returning my miles to my account for the cancelled trip, the miles then were over aged and swallowed up instantly.
Most infuriating, when I complained they assigned someone to phone me at 2 AM or 3 AM multiple times, despite my complaints of timing.
I believe SIA did this as a policy decision, they are malicious thieves in my experience.
It is amazing that they can manage to have snow delays when their flight is on the ground for 10 hours at JFK and other airlines operated on schedule.

How many miles do I need to transfer to get gold ? And what are gold benefits?

Hippo387

Did you even try to figure something out for yourself before asking?

Joel

Cancelation policy on award flights

Joel

Do you need to be fully vaccinated to fly Singapore? JFK-FRA flight says its a VTL flight?

Shahzad

Checked return flights from FRA to JFK or SIN to JFK. There are none with first class. Weird…. Where would the plane go from FRA?

Yandmk

Seatmap shows the old configuration

Glushtygiz

It’s not the new a380? Bust

Shimon

Is Singapore flying out from YUL?

Ah

Thanks for the update, I got an email about seat reassignment and was confused
So to have 2 seats together I should get one in back of the Other?

M

I also have booked from before but i had selected 2 seats that can turn into double bed but now they put us in 2a and 2f and only 3a and 3f are available to switch to
Tried calling but gave up after an hour on hold

joseph

March 27th JFK FRA is a 777. shame!

M

Any chance they will push up the dates with the a380?

sam

if i go with the wait list when does it open up ? and will i get it in the end or not ?

genius

Does anyone know how to get a hold of a live person in the Kris flyer mileage department? I need to double check with them when my miles expire. Have been trying already for more then a week at all different times & many call centers around the world with no successes yet.

Chuny

Call them on 656-223-8888. The waiting time is around an hour.
