Is Extra $500 For Bus. Class On SIN-AKL Worth It?

Tue Sep 18, 2007 4:20 pm

I'm flying SIN-AKL-WLG in November and because of a special deal I'm able to get either:
1. an economy seat for USD$480, or
2. a business seat for USD$970.

I'll be flying SQ285 for the SIN-AKL route.

I'm seriously tempted to pay the extra dosh to get the opportunity to fly business for the first time in my life. What do you think - is it worth the extra cash? From what I understand, USD$970 is still a pretty good deal for business one-way.

Go for it. Sounds exceptionally cheap - and not the quadruple premium they normally ask for.

Okay thanks for info - I've advised SIA I'll take business.

FYI the special rate is because I will be flying on the SYD-SIN A380 charity flight on 26 October Big grin

What did you end up paying for that, if you don't mind me asking? Nice deal anyway, fares run quite high on the SIN-AKL sector.

The SYD-SIN A380 flight? I managed to get a relatively cheap price thankfully - 2 economy tickets for a total of USD$1020. It was quite late in the auction when I won and prices had come down significantly from the first few days.

I've also had to book 2 economy tickets for QF118 WLG-SYD to get over there on the morning of the A380 flight. Cost was approx USD$270 total.

So total cost of the trip for my wife and I will be about USD$3300. Trip will be: WLG-SYD-SIN (all economy) and a week later SIN-AKL-WLG (business, then economy).  thumbsup

Remember SQ285 is operated by a leased 744 ex MH with MH interior, should be pretty nice though.

Extremely good deal that!

I've flown on that, it's not bad at all, except for a bit of condensation problems back in Y which should have been fixed by now.
