(This is part of a trip report to the South Pacific, flying Singapore Airlines and Etihad first class and Lufthansa business class home)!
I can’t believe it’s been two months since my last blog post! We have had a super busy fall, with lots of family visits and the start of a new school year for me! Sorry for the long delay, thanks for reading, and here goes on my summer trip report to Singapore, South Pacific islands, Sydney, Abu Dhabi, Frankfurt, and finally home!
We were able to fly Singapore Airlines first class suites from JFK to Frankfurt, then on to Singapore. We used Thank You points from the Citi card, which transferred to Singapore Airlines, ie, Kris Flyer miles. We were continuing on to Auckland for the South Pacific Islands, when we realized we could have done a stopover in Singapore for $100 on the same itinerary. SO, we “waitlisted” that flight for first/business class seats AND we got them! My friend got first class and I got business, but more on that later.
The cost of this JFK to Singapore flight was $7,881 and we paid 93,500 points and $240! It was an unbelievable value for an unforgettable experience! Here are some pictures of the lounge in JFK…
What can I say about the flight? Stellar service, white table cloth, lie flat double bed with a door, what more could you want? The center console you see in the pictures retracts to make a double bed. They had extra seats, so I spent some time in a window seat after a nap!
During our two hour stop in Frankfurt, we were led to the lounge there and escorted back, with a new flight crew to continue on to Singapore.
Back to the plane for more pampering and posh service!
We landed in Singapore early in the morning and wanted to have breakfast in “The Private Room,” which is only available to those flying first class suites. So we did that before going to our hotel.
Next up, Singapore Changi Airport and the IHG, Singapore…
P.S. I want one of those flight attendant outfits! (:
