I was amazed when I flew Singapore Airlines Business Class for the first time last year. Not only was the seat the best I’ve ever flown, but the service was some of the best I’ve ever experienced.
I’ve only flown Singapore on a paid ticket but have always kept an eye out for opportunities to use United miles to fly on a Singapore Airlines award ticket. It’s been difficult to secure Singapore Business Class seats in the past using United miles. As a result, it came as a surprise when I was able to find Business Class availability to the Maldives for two months straight in the fall.
Business Class Availability
The Business class award availability appears to be wide open next fall from Singapore to Male, Maldives.
From an award search for 3 people, there are many dates where Business Class to the Maldives from Singapore can be booked using United miles. Most of the availability is on the later flight leaving Singapore at 8:45 PM and arriving into Male, Maldives at 10:10 PM. The availability looks good on the return as well.
UPDATE: It looks like the early flight is available on certain days.
This is a great option to get to the Maldives using United miles. If your not a United flyer, you can fly with SkyTeam on the new Korean Airlines flight that opens up in the spring of 2013.
Of course you can pick up miles in the United or Korean Air programs through some generous Chase offers like the Chase Ink Plus Business Card offers 50,000 bonus points after $5,000 spend within 3 months, the Chase Ink Bold Business Card offers 50,000 bonus points after $5,000 spend within 3 months, or the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card which offers 40,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months.
Has anyone been able to book more than one Business Class ticket on this route with Singapore Airlines in the past?
