The A380 is from SIN
will be on a 747-412 stopping in HKG
THANK YOU, for your focus.....so I went back online to Travelation.com to see if I made an error on the figures. As of this morning this is what was listed. R/T coach fare (SIN
, 08 Jan - SYD
, 12 Jan) on the A380 was $4391.00 + 261.18 tax/fee = $4,647.18 Flights for the same dates on a 747 was $1,801.00 + 261.18 = $2057.18
Still reflecting a sizeable price differential. I too began to agree that it just didn't look right.
So, thanks to everyone who posted a comment, I checked out SQ
site directly and concluded that TRAVELATION.com has the coach fare posted in correctly. SQ
posted "Coach" fares as $1,271.62 on the A380 and $1,064.29 for their 747. Now that's looks more reasonable. I further researched and discovered that I could save a few dollars by booking directly with Singapore Airlines. NOW, that was a shocker. I always assumed that dealing with online brokers such as Expedia, Travelation, Travelocity, etc was a way to save some money. Wow, I received a "Heads-up" awakening today.
I'm never going to assume anymore....This really made an "Assss" out of myself.
Fortunately the Credit Card I'm using allows me to cancel without penalty within 30 days of travel. So I decided to rebook my res with SQ
and save some pocket change.
I going to have a "Happier Holiday" and a few more dollars to spend.
