51% off KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes for February 2020

This month's Spontaneous Escapes looks set to be a bonanza, with 51% off selected routes.

Wow.

During Spontaneous Escapes, we usually see selected routes available at 30% off. This has been the practice for a very long time now, so imagine my surprise when I got a message from a reader this morning that many routes for February were pricing at 51% off. 

I checked the website and indeed found it to be so- Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Brisbane, Adelaide, Seoul, Tokyo…all available for February travel at 51% off the usual redemption costs.

I had no idea whether this was an error or intentional, but what I do know is that in these situations you book first and ask questions later. I went ahead and booked a SIN-FRA Business Class redemption for just 45,080 miles (phenomenal value) and S$49.80 in taxes, which ticketed without any issues. I’m going to use this as the foundation for an EVA Air 787-10 Business Class review (more on that in another post).

As to whether this is a glitch or intentional, someone on the Telegram Group pointed out that under Restrictions, “51 PERCENT PROMOTION” is stated. This leads me to believe that it’s intentional- perhaps a way to celebrate some sort of landmark.

Update: And indeed, it is official. KrisFlyer is celebrating its 21st birthday this Feb, hence 30% (usual) + 21% (bonus). See full analysis below

The concern now is booking your flights before everyone else (like those in Europe/USA) snaps them up.

As a reminder, you need to click on the flight before the discount appears. Initially you’ll see regular pricing.

If you’ve clicked on a flight and don’t see a discount reflecting, it’s possible that particular date is a blackout or that particular flight number isn’t on offer. Keep trying. Please remember that Spontaneous Escapes cannot be changed or cancelled, so make sure your plans are confirmed before you pull the trigger.

Now that the deals are officially up, here’s the full analysis:


All Spontaneous Escape awards must be booked and ticketed by 31 January 2020 and are for travel between 1-29 February 2020 (both dates inclusive, blackout dates apply).

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 
  • You must ticket your award during the promotion period. If your waitlist clears after the promotion period ends, you’ll pay the regular price
  • Blackout dates apply. If you’re not seeing discounts, this may be why
  • Your travel must be completed within the Spontaneous Escapes promotion period to qualify. For example, if you fly on the last day of the month but land on the first day of the following month, no discount applies
  • Remember that the discount will only appear once you’ve clicked on the selected award

Here’s a summary of what’s available for Singapore Airlines and SilkAir in February 2020.

What’s good this month?

Advertising

With 51% off, everything is good. This is basically a 2-for-1 deal on many destinations- time to take that special someone on a trip of a lifetime.

I’d definitely focus on snapping up long-haul Business Class redemptions because I don’t think you’ll ever see them this low again for a long time. Please don’t waste this opportunity on Economy or Premium Economy Class redemptions- this is the month for Business.

Here’s my thoughts on this month’s destinations.

North America and Europe

With 51% off, rates to North America and Europe are an absolute steal. It gets even better when you take into account the fact that Singapore Airlines has no fuel surcharges on awards.

San Francisco, Dusseldorf, Paris, Milan, Barcelona and Rome are all excellent deals at 45-46K miles for one-way Business Class, assuming you’re able to take last minute leave for a long-ish trip (there’s no point going for less than a week, in my opinion).

These routes will be served by either A350-900s or B77Ws, both of which will have the 2013 Business Class product.

Japan and South Korea

The other region you’ll want to look at is Japan and South Korea, which will cost only 23K miles for one-way Business Class. Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, Busan and Seoul are all available, and it may be freezing in February but that’s just an excuse to go clothes shopping.

Even better, all these destinations are available both inbound and outbound from Singapore.

You’ll find a mix of products on these routes, including the 2018 Regional Business Class seat.

Conclusion

February 2020’s Spontaneous Escapes are a deal you simply can’t miss. Remember to ticket your awards before 31 January!
