No 600USD fare in that case (based on my search), only 900USD available if long stop in SIN on outbound

Thanks so much for sharing this!

I can't seem to find the 600 USD fares on the Expedia US site.. They keep getting repriced on the MyTrip website.

Price it out with YFFF (first leg pen-sin in Y, rest in F) then it will work

Got it! I was trying to do the FFFY sector and it kept getting repriced..

Also the Travel2be website works well =)

Thanks again for this!!

Indeed sorry, I'd selected Business instead of First (which allows a stop in SIN for 600 USD)

Really tempted by this as Im due to be in HKG in May and could head across to PEN for this... but the Singapore government has said they wont rule out possibly restricting/banning entry to people who have recently been to HKG, so not sure if its a good idea at this point :-/

you will only stay in transit.
FYI: e.g. HKG has banned anyone that has been to China but not those in transit only

Taiwan is already enforcing a 14 day quarantine on anyone who has been in transit through mainland China or Hong Kong..

Interestingly the Y FFF deal has a change of plane from 77W to A380 so the stop is only 1 hour in SG.
Hopefully no delays on the SIN PEN SIN sector otherwise no shower!

the quarantine is only if you are entering the country. If you stay in transit you should be fine (as the case of HKG). My mate has transited via TPE to SEA from China

Any pointers how/where to book the YFFF combination (preferably with an OTA with a reasonable cancellation policy)? Thank you!

I see Gilbert @ God Save the Points blog has just named you in his article on this fare.

Its very tricky. Am waiting on Finnair to allow cancellation of an itinerary to Guangzhou departing end of April... then due to HKG for the middle 2 weeks of May wit QR (albeit was only going to stay there for 3/4 days)....

If the situation changed and Finnair flew the route (theyre only cancelled up to 29 March at the moment) - then I couldnt take this flight anyway... pretty gutted!

Sorry if its a stupid question... how do I "force" the ticket to be in Y for the first leg?
