Ideas to fly J from SIN to BOS affordably.

Looking to visit Boston next year in Spring and looking to fly there in J. Initially looked at Google Flights and seems like everything out of SIN is at least 5.5k USD.

Changed departure to CMB and seems like QR is offering 2.1k USD CMB-BOS-CMB. So I can technically get a cheap UL or EK Y ticket to position myself.

Do anyone else knows what is the best way to fly there in J affordably? I can live with SIN-xxx-NYC and take the bus to Boston or position myself somewhere in Asia to fly one-stop to Boston. Would appreciate any ideas! Thanks!!

SIN is expensive to fly out of.

If you are OK to fly to BKK first on a desperate ticket you can fly J BKK-HEL-JFK for $2,254 us2



Just made up some dates in the spring, not sure what your schedule is.

Just use your frequent flyer miles to redeem a business class ticket, you can earn those from credit card spending.

If you can't afford the US$2.1k as mentioned, then you shouldn't be looking at flying business class.

There are some $2k Delta RT J seats PVG-JFK right now in the mileage run thread. It would be a pain to position BUT you'd get those long segments in biz. Also, it may be worth checking out if you can get that tick to work from sin and to BOS....you never know.

A 'desperate' ticket ?
