[PREM FARE GONE] LH/SQ First HEL-FRA-SIN for 2,830

I'm super tempted by this one! 12 hours+ in the sky in the Singapore Airlines First Class Suite! I found the cheapest way to get this fare was to build as a multi-city trip on Lufthansa (so 4 segments HEL-FRA-SIN-FRA-HEL). It is also available on Expedia (searching HEL-SIN only) but 100 more. It may work out cheaper on the whole if you want to add on a hotel though. Not showing up on ITA so the fare rules are not 100% clear, but stopovers appear to be charged. Availability from January 2020 throughout the year. It is a First Restricted fare.

You can get this fare flying on any combination of Lufthansa or Singapore Airlines. I would fly the long haul segment on Singapore, making sure it is in the A380 to get the suite (note it isn't the refurbished suite!)

My sample itinerary is March 10th to 17th (arriving one day later). I would include a screenshot but don't have rights to yet!

Helsinki HEL - Frankfurt FRA Lufthansa Business Class 10 Mar 2020 @ 0720 arriving 0910
Frankfurt FRA - Singapore Changi SIN Singapore Airlines First Suite A380 10 Mar 2020 @ 1140 arriving 0650+1
Singapore Changi SIN - Frankfurt FRA Singapore Airlines First Suite A380 17 Mar 2020 @ 2355 arriving 0620+1
Frankfurt FRA - Helsinki HEL Lufthansa Business Class 18 March @ 0945 arriving 1315.

I'm trying to do this with outbound on 22nd or 23rd July, and inbound from SIN on 8th or 9th August.
If selecting a straight SIN - HEL inbound, I'm not getting any Singapore flights - only Lufthansa, and the price is about 3300 Euros pp
If I do SIN - FRA and FRA HEL, then I do see Singapore flights but the price is something like 6.5k Euros pp!
Am I doing it wrong?

Check the details. It's a Lufthansa fare so you will only see Lufthansa flight numbers. But FRA-SIN-FRA will be codeshare flights on Singapore metal.

That's great! So I guess this works for open jaws too!

Thanks mate but I can't get it to show any first class flights. It's showing me that itinerary but only with business class.
I'm not good with Matrix and can't get GF to do it either.
Do you know who sells those tickets with the 1st class longhaul sectors at that price?

Hi Aston

So if you go to Lufthansa's multi city search here (I've put in what I can to start you off). Add on flight segments or each flight (so one for HEL - FRA, one for FRA - SIN etc). Make sure you have First as your cabin.
You will then get a page where you select each flight individually.
They all have Lufthansa flight numbers, but it shows clearly where it is operated by Singapore.

Does that work now?

Thank you. This is exactly what I was doing before, except I was selecting two passengers, and it was giving me a much higher price (currently 4832 euro pp - 9664 euro total).
If I select one passenger, it gives me a price of 2832 euro pp which is in-line with what you reported.

Is there any way I can get this price to apply to two person?

Thanks again.

I was doing searches for 2 people today that worked. So I assume the dates you are inputting do not have 2 seats left at that price. If you can be flexible, try some dates a few days before or after!
