How to get the most out of your Singapore Airlines Ticket

Tuesday September 6, 2016 | by Daniel Goh

Growing up, every Singaporean learns how grand Singapore Airlines is. World renowned service, both on ground and in the air, updated inflight entertainment, even the departure gates in the airport require less walking distance. Your friends will tell you how lucky you are to fly on SQ, and it truly is a luxury that not everyone gets to experience.

Here’s the good news: In this week’s Flash Sale, all SQ flights are heavily on sale. Read on to find out which destinations will help you to maximise your experience on this world-class airline.

1. Melbourne

Singapore Airlines flies 8 hours direct to Melbourne and their ticket price includes 30kg checked baggage. Compared to the prices that Low-Cost Carriers (LCCs) offer, it’s only slightly more expensive. This is because after adding the cost of checked baggage and meals on LCCs, their ticket prices become significantly higher. The prices of LCCs shown below do not include baggage and food.

Even when other airline prices are cheaper, they do not fly direct, bringing the total flight duration up from 8 hours to almost 20 hours. So it really makes you wonder if the long transfers are worth scrimping on. It makes much more financial sense to pay slightly more for guaranteed seat comfort, food and entertainment.

Which airline would you rather fly with on an 8-hour flight to Melbourne?

2. Bangkok

Bangkok is the perfect shopping destination and Singapore Airlines provides enough checked baggage allowance to make sure that no matter how much you shop, bringing your haul back will not be a problem. Jetstar and Tigerair ticket prices shown below do not include checked baggage.

For the two hours during your flight to Bangkok, you can watch an action blockbuster movie with a cup of hot milo in one hand and a bag of peanuts in the other. Supporting your neck is a Singapore Airlines pillow and your blanket keeps you snug and warm. Some things really are worth paying more for.

The land of food, dimsum and shopping is also a great place to fly via Singapore Airlines. The same concept applies - if the prices of LCCs and Singapore Airlines comes up to about the same, why not take the one that provides more?
