Much better use would be CO or AC where you'd get 150% EQMs. Those 28,000 EQMs for one F RTW would get you within 7K of AC Elite and *A Gold.

You cannot use this fare to fly in suites on A380 or 77W, right? IIRC last time I was looking at this even a C-class fare would require an extra surcharge to fly on these planes.

What about crediting to M&M at 3x for F? 56K miles are only half-way to *G, but they are certainly more miles to burn (with ridiculous surcharges though).

On the First RTW, true you cannot book the 380 suites, but there are no 77W restrictions. On the C fare, there is a 77W surcharge.

This seems unusually low, given that the government taxes and fees on the LHR-SIN segment alone would be GBP 132.97 (GBP 110 for UK Air Passenger Duty, GBP 22.97 for UK Passenger Service charge), and SQ's YQ surcharge on that one segment alone is GBP 115. I hope that you'll not be nickeled and dimed for additional collections enroute.....

I've done it before and the price was the same $7,100, no nickels and dimes along the way.

One of the best deal out there IMO.
I just hope that this fare will still exist when I will be able to do it.

I know, the idea of flying SQ is fascinating to some, because well, it's pretty darn near impossible to book them on award tickets, especially on the 77W and Suites.

Having personally flown SQ Suite on the A380, as well other top notch carriers in F like OZ, LH, LX, TK, JL, NH, I can tell you that while SQ F or Suite on the A380 are excellent, I don't think I am willing to pull a $7100 trigger.

With US Airways' practically free mile giveaway, one could have easily mix and match'd an RTW itinerary in *A F for a mere $875 (125,000 miles during the track-it-back giveaway). While getting SQ F on the 77W and A380 was not possible, it was not that hard to get SQ F on the 747 as well as having US approve a true RTW itinerary involving all the top notch carrier.

Could not agree more with the above

Agree on the US part, but for anyone who doesn't want to fly around the world alone, SQ F is significantly harder to procure with miles.

BKK-CAI-JFK-CAI-BKK on MS (J class) is currently pricing at $2,260 all-in around the holidays (fare code JSAURTMS). Yes, it's a dry airline, but that's over 20,000 miles in paid J...
