Yes it is but little higher price, around $1500 OW or $2700 R/T but I thought it's still a solid deal because you could stopover at Frankfurt and Singapore to see Europe / SE Asia region if you fancy.

Haven't pull the trigger yet.

Gotcha. Trying to find it on Matrix and it's not pricing, but you're right, the fare is still filed in EF, so theoretically should be available somewhere. End of year mileage run for me ...

ITA showed no availability for the round trip ticket I booked, but I was able to book exactly the dates I wanted on www.cleartrip.com plus I got a discount (7500 IDR) for being a new customer (sounds like this is a regular promo for them). Total cost was 158K IDR (US$2180).

I booked my ticket back on Oct 2 for Jan/Feb. I was just trying to make the point that sometimes there is availability even though ITA says there is none.

I guess everyone has different preferences when it comes to food, but last time I ordered the Chargrilled Soya Beef as well as Lobster for my SIN-FRA-JFK flight. The beef (steak) was very delicious and perfectly cooked to medium rare. I also love the seasoning which was savory with a hint of sweetness. I initially had high expectations for the lobster, but it was just okay.

BTC is available for supper meal and mid-flight meal, I just selected my meals online for my SIN-EWR flight for end of this month. As noted above, it's only available 3-4 months before departure.

Somehow Google flight is showing incorrect fares which are not bookable E.g. Dec 21 AMD to SIN and DEC 25 SIN to EWR.. Called Singapore Airlines and was quoted almost double
