QR/AY/UL - Europe-Singapore (Business) From $1,402 R/T

3 OneWorld Alliance members are offering some nice fares between Europe and Singapore.

Qatar Airways, Finnair and Sri Lankan are all offering various business class deals for travel commencing right away through to June 2016 and availability looks great.

Note: A lot of these fares must be booked by 30 November.

Sri Lankan is the cheapest (unsurprisingly) at $1,402 R/T but you can get the Finnair A350 for around $1,900 R/T and the Qatar A350 for around $2,100 R/T

All of these look good value to me and, with all three fares available in December, this could be a comfortable way to do a mileage or tier-point run

All fares can be found via ITA Matrix (where I found them) - just be careful not to accidentally book anything with a super long layover.

On what airlines and what routes? In business the prices easily reach 3k EUR and on the UK routes reach 5k. On another note; I found FCO-SIN on CX J for very reasonable prices. https://www.kayak.com/flights/FCO-SI...xible/business

AMS/ARN/OSL/CPH to BKK/SIN/JKT/BLC, etc. It's been like that for a long time and well documented on this forum.

Not saying the prices are bad, just saying they are pretty standard. These promos are offered all the time.

Availability ex-Europe to SIN is generally scarce at those rates. At the 2k level it is available with CX ex-Scandinavia. But again, hardly available. This would be a great way to try UL's new biz with reverse herringbone seats^

Please go ahead and do some research of your own. Availability on J on those routes I mentioned, and others, is always there and even at lower prices than what the OP stated.

How far out? On Google Flights I only find BKK at -1400 dollars and no availability until March. SIN is at the 1700 mark ex-AMS. And only on CZ which has a pretty poor J soft product IMHO.

UL is dropping its routes to FRA, FCO & CDG - I last heard

PS. And the lowest fare in Business to SIN from its only remaining station in Europe, LHR, is about $2,400

Don't get upset ! Someone usually turns up to pour cold water on posts giving good deals: they seem to get a kick out telling posters their contribution is nothing special.

Not a good way to encourage to new posters, but that's the way it is.

For what it's worth, I think a sub-1000 fare to Singapore in business-class is definitely worth flagging - so thanks for your contribution!

Any timeline you might've heard on UL making a move on this? Would be a PITA to try to reschedule something once booked, especially when needing positioning flights.

And btw, thanks OP!
