UA: LAX-SIN $384 RT (17520mi, 2.2cpm)

Nonstop. Not quite as good as the EWR-SIN deal, but for anyone on this side of the continent, still a great deal.

Tons of availability through early December.

If you are unable to upgrade, that is a Loooooooooooong way in coach

Granted, an amazing price

Cheap enough for a couple to buy/share an empty middle seat on the Dreamliner.

NB after 2 days in SIN, I'd hop a cheap seat on Scoot to OZ or BKK for serious fun.

2.2! Reminds me of what mileage running used to be. I so miss those days. Hate revenue flying.

Int'l fares rarely if ever work in reverse

If you want to fly ex Asia, there is (was?) deal from HKG that also didn't work in reverse.

What a coincidence.....I'm going to finish the year 17K miles short of keeping my Gold status. Really thinking about this but could only do a same day turn.

You could do that for as little as $384 (https://www.google.com/flights/#sear...=STAR_ALLIANCE)

edit: Sorry for stating the obvious. I thought the title mentioned $400+

Booked one for early Nov. One night in Singapore, my friend just moved there so it'll be a good opportunity to catch up. Seems a pity to go all the way there and turn right back around.

Anyway, I did UA1 (SFO-SIN) earlier this year, and in E+ exit row/bulkhead it's bearable. Towards the end I was getting a little antsy and just wanted to do anything but be on an airplane, but the Dreamliner really helps. When I arrived I had a 8+ hour layover and was noticeably more refreshed and energetic than on any of my recent transpacs. I'm hoping this will be a similar experience. They do feed you at least 3 meals, and do a bunch of drink services. Getting up and walking around really helps. The worst part of these flights is honestly the discomfort from the bloat you get from being at that altitude for 16+ hours. And there is really nothing you can do about it.

I do agree with you though, I felt so sorry for those in the middle seat in E-. I don't know how that's even possible for someone that's over 40ish and taller than 6 feet to endure. It's really punishing, and the service level and general attitude of the FAs back there doesn't help one bit. I just get this vibe from them that they are so disinterested in their jobs that they take it out on the passengers sometimes.

Anyway, thanks for this deal, this'll get me almost exactly to Plat for next year.

By the way, these are most likely introductory fares on this route, since it starts October 27th, since it wasn't mentioned anywhere in this thread.

Great deal, enjoy it whoever gets in.

Totally unrelated, but I saw one way from HKG-ATL (via SFO or ORD) for the next few months on United for $400 if anyone needs a cheap flight on that route. I almost never seen anything good one way from Asia to Atlanta. Not a MR though, obviously.

I'm starting in ORD on an earlier fare, but I'm flying ORD-LAX-SIN-SFO-ORD (3 hours in SIN) starting November 10th if anyone will be on that flight.
