I didn’t get an email about this promotion (which is weird because I’m signed up for alerts) but Jeriel has just pointed out to me that the Krisflyer spontaneous escapes list has been updated for November.

It’s certainly not as exciting as last month’s list, given that Dusseldorf is the only long haul premium cabin destination to go on sale. Dusseldorf was also on sale last month, leading me to wonder how poor the loads are on that route.
Nonetheless, I’d encourage you to make the best of this. Dusseldorf may not be your dream holiday destination, but you should consider the possibility of redeeming a business award flight here and then buying a cheap ticket to your final European destination. Dusseldorf has direct flights to all the major European cities and is within 2 hours of everywhere that’s worth going.
I was about to say that economy tickets to Bali might be worth a gander until I noticed that the black out dates cover half the month including the post Christmas period. Ah well. I think it’s a bit silly to do a promotion and have 50% of the dates unavailable off the bat but it is what it is.
Remember that in order to enjoy this promotion you will need to ticket your awards before 30 November. That means that if you’re waitlisted and the waitlist clears after 30 November, you will not be able to enjoy this promotion notwithstanding the fact you got on the waitlist during the promotional period.
Also remember that tickets redeemed under this promotion cannot be cancelled or changed.
