I think this one might be a mistake fare? I am able to price this on SQ site, as well as on various reputable OTAs (Expedia, etc.)

Are you sure this isn't a one-way fare?

Roundtrip base fare 397 books into k, ticket by 30nov2018

probably cheap intro fare (sea-sin is new ulh flight in 2019 in economy, sin-dps leg is economy)

edit:sea-sin has economy, isnt PE/J only

PE is 997 use base fare, not to bad

The dates are literally in the screenshot

For reference, 03 September to 09 September or so, but a variety of dates are available.


Edit: and yes, I'm sure this isn't a one-way fare. The SQ website shows pricing for the first leg as $488 and the second leg will be $0, which is generally how their promotional fares price out, rather than showing the one-way cost for each leg as is common with US carriers.

Its a legit promo, not fare mistake. (See my link above to SQ promo page and update your thread title, mnl/bkk/sgn cheaper at 450 allin)

Your image doesn't load for me, need to remove the .png to see it

I see the promo page in your screen shot, but it just shows a list a cities on sale...no specific booking dates, but I see the fare when clicking through to specific cities....good fare, but since you can't book past October, 2019 and the sale doesn't start til September, 2019, the booking window quite limited....even more limited by the fact that the SEA-SIN flight doesn't look like it's daily....still a good deal for those can make it work. I'm also surprised that it's not showing up at all on a Google flights search.

Sea-mnl $990 all-in for premium economy (R - 100% on the long haul sea-sin)

Decent fare, not a mileage run

People were happy with lax-sin PE @ $1k. Sea-sin is 700 miles shorter

Premium Economy: Sq: Sin-lax/ewr around $1000

Punch in sea - dps for sept 5th, it shows 2.1K for J class

If you punch in sea to dps for sept 5th, it shows 2 tickets still available in Business class, ~2100 all in.

this shows only through the PE search.

Enjoy
