$1,300 One Way (Biz) India-EWR (SIA Longest Flight)

Incredible Fare on Singapore Airlines' new route (SIN-EWR) on the A350 ULR, in Business. Flight from Ahmedabad (India) to Singapore -> 17 Hour layover in Singapore - Singapore Newark nonstop 17 hours in Biz. Price from other Indian cities (e.g., Delhi) takes this to well over $3K

Found on Momondo and bookable on Singapore Airlines website for various dates. This flight would net ~10K EQMs (Discount Business) on United and similar amount of miles (as United does not credit miles using MileagePlus level multiplier for tickets issued by Singapore Airlines)

*UPDATE* Same fare available on other Dates in Dec/Jan - some of those flights are on A380 to JFK (via FRA)

That is exactly I found 2 weeks ago, and still alive, i may book it, adding 1000 usd extra return leg would be via FRA SIN AMD in A380 upto SIN
crediting to AS will earn around 47000 to 50000 RDM, more with status on AS
I am combining with IBERIA Avios promotion to position myself to AMD and visit there family

It seems that you can travel from AMD to every SQ destinations in the US for the same price (EWR, JFK, IAH, SFO, LAX). Interestingly, you can add a stop over (i.e. SIN, FRA, MAN) for a bit more.

I thought the MAN flights were served by the same A350 seats?

well i have no idea about that...if both flights are on regular A350 seats then i'm gonna skip it, however EWR flights are going to be operated by A350-900UL and i tought that seat is different then regular seat in A350-900, if it's the same then there is no point taking such long flight.

Thanks OP. Booked AMD-SIN-EWR with a SIN stopover. Looking forward to fly the longest non-stop!

I think all the A350's will have their new business product which is quite good. Flew it last week and got the first row seat in the second cabin. I can honestly say this seat was just as good as the First class seat on the SQ 77W I flew the month earlier.

I just booked this! I wonder if I can fly in on the SQ flight which gets in at ~9:30pm and have enough time to transit and come back for the ~11:00pm departure. I've been to HYD and DEL which can be hectic at times. Any thoughts?

Great find! Just keep in mind, UA only credits most SQ business fares at 100% for PQM, not 200%
