The rumors of loosened award availability on long-haul, premium cabin Singapore appear to be quite true. Long limited to only the exorbitant rates and only for the carrier’s own KrisFlyer members, things change as of March first. The seats – except for First Class Suites on the A380s – are available for redemption at saver levels now within the KrisFlyer program. Even more spectacular, however, is that they are available to partners, too.
Even better, it actually is bookable!
Excepting the minor error on the meal service designation, this is a beautiful sight to see.
I’m not sure I’ll actually be able to make the trip, but it is nice to see that the award inventory is out there and that it is bookable for partners. Also, this is the same inventory bucket that is used for upgrade awards, so that’s another nice option that should be available.
Oh, and if searching on the new united.com site be wary of connecting itineraries showing premium cabin seats. Mixed-cabin itineraries are showing the higher booking level and no warnings even if one of the flights is in a lower cabin.
Hat tip to Hartmann for noticing the glory that is these awards online.
