In this sale, fantastic fares to various destinations are on offer. My personal picks would be a Business Class fare from Singapore to London Heathrow starting from S$2,768. That’s staggering value in my books. Tokyo is also back on sale with Business Class fares from S$1,470 which isn’t the lowest we’ve seen it go for. Economy Class fares are also legit with fares to Taipei starting from just S$306 and Bangkok starting from just S$157. That’s a great fare in my opinion.
Malaysia Airlines primarily operates their narrow body aircraft for flights around the region with Economy Class laid out in a 3-3 configuration on their Boeing 737s. If you’re flying to London or Tokyo in Business Class, it is laid out in an alternating 1-2-1 and a 2-2-1 layout on the A330-300s and A350s.
Singapore Airlines is currently running a sale where its offering app-exclusive fares to select destinations.
