Singapore Airlines A380 New Suites LHR – SIN Review

Flight Singapore Airlines SQ 317 LHR – SIN 29 August 2018 Aircraft: Airbus A380 Seat 2A & 2F Exactly a year ago, I wrote how Singapore Airlines was launching its newest Airbus A380 new cabins. I was super excited about the new hard products especially the new A380 suites. Undoubtedly, this flight was by far the highlight of my 2018 flight. Booking Singapore Airlines Suites To book Singapore Airlines First Class or Suites, you can only redeem through Krisflyer only and not through Star Alliance partners. I could not find any availability for most dates on Saver awards. However, I…

Hilton Carlton Edinburgh Review

Booking Hilton Carlton Edinburgh My wife could not pick a better time to go to Edinburgh. We went there on August, easily the peak season and the hotel rates are astronomical. The nightly rates were even more expensive than in London’s. Luckily enough I was able to redeem using Hilton Honours points and save a lot of money. If you plan to stay in the heart of the city’s Old Town, Hilton Carlton Edinburgh is a great choice. It is near the train station, although we got lost trying to find our way to the hotel. We did not know…

Garuda Indonesia First Class Jakarta to London

Flight Garuda Indonesia GA86 16 August 2018 Aircraft: Boeing 777-300 ER Seat 2F & 2G During Garuda Indonesia Travel Fair (GATF) 2018, Garuda had 50% discount on ticket redemption to any destinations. I managed to find availability on First Class to London. I’ll talk more on how I book Jakarta to London tickets on Garuda Indonesia First Class. Sadly, Garuda Indonesia has announced that Garuda would stop Jakarta to London flights, quoting “unprofitable routes”. Had I book this flight 3 months later, I would have missed the chance to fly direct to London. Garuda Indonesia First Class Pre Flight With…

Why Should You Book Hotel Rooms Using Points

Generally speaking booking a hotel room using points is not recommended. You are better off using your points to book an airline ticket. But there are some cases where booking a hotel room can be a good deal. In my case, booking a hotel room using points is cheaper than booking a hotel room and paying with cash. I am planning to head over to Edinburgh in Mid August and my oh my, the hotel rates are astronomical. Lo and behold, Scotland apparently has the most enjoyable weather in August, with average weather ranges from 15 to 18 degrees Celsius.…

The availability for the saver awards is very limited for both Business Class and Suites. If you want to know the current routes of SQ new Airbus A380,…

Emirates’ New First Class vs Singapore Airlines’ New Suites

What a series of events lately in the battle of premium cabins from the top airlines. After Singapore Airlines launched the new cabins on November 3rd, Emirates was trailing with the revamp cabins on Dubai Air Show on November 12th. Both airlines, in my opinion have wowed so many eyes and each has distinct features. Singapore Airlines’ new Suites on new A380s When Singapore Airlines first introduced its first Suites in 2007, it was a game changer. Imagine having a double bed on an airplane, having your own private suite, or choosing between Dom Perignon or Krug. So after 10…

After 10 years in service, the A380 will get a cabin ‘facelift’. All cabins including the Suites will get a refreshed look.…

Garuda Indonesia First Class No More??!

What a sad news to hear. Garuda Indonesia is considering discontinuing the First Class service to cut losses. Currently Garuda Indonesia serves First Class to certain destinations, such as London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Jeddah. This comes to a shock as well, considering recently Garuda Indonesia announced direct flights to London on the Boeing 777-300ER. It seems the strategic plan for Garuda Indonesia under the new CEO is service cuts and less expansion. The service cuts will aim at lowering the burgeoning operating cost. It includes cutbacks to the in-flight products, smaller portion meals, beverages options cut on business class. The airline…

Citibank PremierMiles credit card features
