Per the mods, the Mileage Run Deals forum is only for posting/discussing active deals. If you were looking for the previous mega-thread including suggestions on things to do in Singapore etc. and peripheral stuff related to the SIN MR but not directly having to do with fares or booking it, that thread can still be found in the Mileage Run Discussion forum:

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/mile...i-4-9-cpm.html

In addition, discussions about DL and SkyMiles including recent program changes can be found in the Delta forum: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/delt...-skymiles-665/

Questions/advice about Singapore as a destination can be found in the Singapore forum: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/singapore-510/

Smile Prices for July 23

Prices have come down a bit as expected
$811.31 Best price Aug 26-29, 27-30, Sep 2-5, 3-6, 9-12, 10-13, 16-19, 17-20, 23-26, 24-27, 30-Oct 3, 7-10, 14-17, 15-18, Nov 4-7, 5-8, Dec 2-5, 3-6, 10-15
Thanksgiving week $817.43 Nov 19-22

$931.21 Oct 22-25
$978.31 Nov 18-21 Thanksgiving week
Last 2 prices not so good, just posted for information. MQM are the same as in earlier posts so I wont duplicate them here. These are the best prices at the current time but am hoping that they will go down further in a month or so.
Happy Travels! Keep your questions and comments coming.

Glad to see them trending downward! Looking to book another SIN run later in the year.

Replicating the dates on AF's web site produced the same price but could not purchase ("technical error") and replicating in ITA Matrix and trying to book on DL via the userscript (which would've been nice since I have DL credits I want to use up) also failed at final booking with a fare increase to 7k+.

However I was able to get it ticketed at Orbitz and have an AF PNR and ticket number with seat assignments and everything, so...

In scanning the Premium Deals forum this doesn't seem like the best SIN J deal compared to some recent stuff, but for 35k+ MQMs and 9k+ MQDs it still seemed worth it

Fare rules for IAH seem to require travel starting on M-W in both directions. Saw possibilities out of both DFW and DAL as well as ORD. Happy hunting!

How this itinerary worked out? Trying to plan a MR to Asia from NY but I am more interested in MQDs.

Everything credited as expected within a few days of travel, although as with any itinerary involving partner flights I recommend getting paper boarding passes (at the airport if you can't do it before traveling) and holding on to them until everything posts.

NYC-Asia should have decent possibilities, although more likely westbound on China Eastern. Happy hunting!

For those seeking MQMs there were some good SJC-PVG/PEK fares for 3+ day stay recently (China visa needed)

If you want to make DM you really need to consider making MQD runs as some readers have commented which usually gets you in J and is much more comfortable but will cost more $.and give more MQM and SM
Zorak, thanks for your comments and describing your run. Readers explore and search and see what you come up with Happy Travels to all and have a great week. Keep questions and comments coming. Blessings
