KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for June 2019 announced

Book selected awards at 30% off for travel in June 2019.

KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for June 2019 have been announced, with 30% off selected SIA and SilkAir flights.

These must be booked and ticketed by 31 May 2019 (waitlists that clear after this date will be charged the regular rate, regardless of when you added your name to the waitlist), and are for travel between 1-30 June 2019 (both dates inclusive).

Ground Rules of Spontaneous Escapes

  • Tickets cannot be changed or cancelled. Be sure about your travel plans or buy a travel insurance policy that covers miles bookings
  • Tickets must be booked online; no phone bookings are permitted
  • Cannot be used in conjunction with the $100 stopover trick 
  • Discounts may apply in one direction only e.g. SIN-BKK may be on discount but BKK-SIN may not. Be sure to read the offers carefully 
  • Blackout dates apply. If you’re not seeing discounts, this may be why
  • Remember that the discount will only appear once you’ve clicked on the selected award

37 destinations on offer for June 2019

*Jan 2019’s Spontaneous Escapes featured 3 USA destinations for Premium Economy travel in Feb 2019. This has not been included in the average

June 2019 features 37 destinations in total (39 if you include Houston and San Francisco, available as fifth freedom flights; I count Tokyo Haneda and Tokyo Narita as 2 separate destinations), which is pretty average compared to previous months.

What’s good this month?

Enjoy Singapore Airline’s 2013 Business Class seat on flights to Houston and San Francisco

For the first time ever, we are seeing fifth freedom flights on Spontaneous Escapes. Both Manchester to Houston and Hong Kong to San Francisco (but not the other way round) are being discounted:

EconomyPremium EconomyBusiness
MAN-IAH24.15K32.9K
HKG-SFO62.3K

Is this of any value to you in Singapore? Not really- the cost of your positioning flights to Manchester would more than offset whatever savings there were, and Hong Kong is sort of a marginal proposition.

Business Class30.5K62.3K92.8K95K

There’s no Bangkok or Hong Kong this month, and amazingly, Beijing and Shanghai do not feature for the first time since December 2017 and March 2018 respectively.  Europe also doesn’t feature, although as mentioned during my historical analysis of Spontaneous Escapes routes, that’s the rule rather than the exception.

The good news is that Bali returns after a four month absence, and long haul flights to Dubai and Jo’burg are available. Dubai and Jo’burg are already a sweet spot at the regular price of 49K miles for Business Class, and the discounted price of 34.3K miles is just the icing on the cake.

Catch Singapore Airlines 2018 Regional Business Class seat to Brisbane with this month’s Escapes

If you don’t mind heading to Australia and New Zealand during the winter, you can find numerous premium cabin options here too. Because not all Escapes are available both ways, if you’re flying to Melbourne/Sydney you may want to consider flying home from Brisbane to enjoy a discounted rate both ways.

Conclusion

Spontaneous Escapes are a great way of stretching your miles, especially if you’re traveling with your family. Remember to ticket your awards before 31 May!

Hi, there’s a bit of a mistake for the original milage in the graphical representation for JNB, DXB. Just in case you might want to know. Cheers.

Should be ticket/redeem by 31 May 2019, for travel from 1 to 30 June 2019 inclusive. Correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Aaron,
Is it possible to get pass US immigration without having a return flight booked? (naturally i will find a way back before 3 months is due through various means).
