Free to travel in November? Krisflyer’s offering 30% off economy and business awards

Expired
30% off awards on selected routes in business and economy till 31 October for travel between 1-30 November 2017.

Krisflyer has recently been doing regular promotions offering discounted award tickets. Until recently, these were for economy saver tickets only. But then they started offering premium economy saver tickets (which you absolutely shouldn’t redeem), and even more recently started offering business saver tickets as well.



Well, you’ll be happy to know that Krisflyer has announced a new promotion offering 30% off economy and business saver tickets to selected destinations.

The catch? You need to book by 31 October and travel between 1-30 November 2017 inclusive. I realise for most people, taking leave on such short notice isn’t possible, but I suppose if you’re in between jobs or some sort of influencer, you could take easily advantage of this.

I received this tip from a reader (thanks Ravi!) but didn’t get any email, so at first thought it might be targeted. But I see nothing in the T&C that suggests it is, plus I’m able to see these discounted rates when I book online. Here’s Dusseldorf for example, in business class. You’ll see regular prices when you first search (170,000 miles RT) but when you click on flight options it will price with the 30% discount (119,000 miles RT).

Here’s the list full of places you can go-

Discounted business class tickets are always exciting, and 30% off presents a chance to obtain business class tickets to Australia and Europe at slightly less than the rates before the Krisflyer devaluation.

If you’re thinking of booking your virgin business class experience with this promotion, you might want to know that almost all of the South East Asia routes plus the following are operated by aircraft with SQ’s regional business class product, which is certainly not worth spending miles on, even at 30% off:



  • SQ516/517 to Kolkata
  • S530/531 to Ahmedabad
  • SQ247 to Melbourne
  • SQ291 to Wellington

A few important points to note- tickets redeemed under this promotion cannot be cancelled or changed, one-way bookings are possible and if you waitlist, your waitlist must clear and be ticketed before 31 October to enjoy the 30% discount.

Although I welcome any discount on award tickets, I feel the blackout dates imposed are extremely restrictive, especially to more lucrative long haul destinations

  • SYD/MEL- blackout 17-30 Nov (Y & J)
  • CDG- blackout 4-6 Nov (J), 1-12 Nov (Y)
  • FRA- blackout on flights leaving Fri Sat Sun (Y)
  • ZRH- blackout on flights leaving Sat Sun (Y)

If you’re able to jet off on short notice, good for you! See if you can get this to work, and keep bugging the call centre if you get waitlisted.

Looking at the list, long haul there is really only Dusseldorf and Sydney. There is a 3 day travel window for Paris, and the rest of it is short haul….

For business I mean.

You think SQ will throw the same promo for December trips? wistful thinking?

It’s almost impossible, Dec is peak season.

Dusseldorf is such a strange destination for SQ to fly to. One can easily reach it from Frankfurt. No surprise that J loads must be really light.

Düsseldorf is an amazing destination!
