From which European countries does SQ offer the best return biz fares to SIN?

With econ flights it used to be the UK, but biz fares from LHR seem quite steep.

Any ideas?

Try PRG or WAW. However, you have to connect via FRA or ZRH.

Unfortunately SQ's site won't allow you to choose those two cities, even though I know for a fact that SQ has codeshare flights to WAW.

Even the old SQ site didn't list those cities so this is not a new problem associated strictly with the site "facelift".

As mentioned Athens should be fairly competitive and I have also seen special fares from IST (if you want to count it into Europe) in the 2.1K Euro range RT (for IST-SIN-IST).

If you care to go to IST, then you should at least consider CAI !

I just checked for mid-next month and saw very little availability from Athens, and a price that wasn't enticing either. Hmm...

It's also worth keeping in mind that they have the old C seats (Spacebeds) from ATH. Still better than LH C, but when paying I think I'd got for the new biz seats (Spacebeds are great for redemptions though).

Try ZRH on the A380 by booking the LX codeshare through LX. I saw that quite a few people booked mixed cabin Y out C return and visa versa for 1500 euro so maybe you can get a decent price on C return
pogonation is online now

But doesn't SQ use the older planes for IST and CAI route?

Best deal for this is actually departing from UK ... to SIN via ZRH. Ticket must be booked in Z class and segments are married so you know what that means.

Return Fare in business class is EUR 1867 base + tax

Guy, how would I go about booking this one online? Not through the SQ site I take it?

A TA would be your best bet.

Hi Guy Betsy,
That's on SQ ticket stock right so one will get PPS value?
Or is it on LX ?
Thanks.
