Singapore Airlines is virtually ranked as the best in the entire world, so it certainly makes good sense that their first-class services are now enveloped within this sleek veneer of absolute luxury as well as an eye-watering price tag.
Yet frequent fliers as well as travel blogger Sam Huang of TopMiles have now managed to snag one of their $16,000 round-the-world tickets for merely $480 plus an additional 119,000 of his KrisFlyer miles. KrisFlyer miles are now available via Singapore Air’s frequent flier program and they can also be earned through some credit cards as well as retail or hotel stays, as well as by simply flying Singapore or one of their partner airlines.
This airline ticket includes two multi-day stopovers, that took him from L.A. to Tokyo, Singapore, and then to Sydney in the very most opulent manner that the friendly skies have to offer.
Perks of Huang’s trip prior to takeoff actually included a Christmas-themed lobster/champagne dinner with a private security line as well as immigration checkpoints for first-class passengers along with access to an exclusive airport lounge area and even a separate exclusive jetway for boarding.
And then theres the in-flight experience itself: His suite on the A380 was a private cubicle with floor-to-ceiling walls, all set up with Ferragamo amenities and leather furniture.
