Reminder – Last Chance to Grab Singapore Airlines Premium Seats with Your Delta Skypesos Approaching

The Delta – Singapore Airlines partnership ends May 15.

  1. I booked my ticket on Friday for 2011. I got LAX-SIN-NRT-LAX, with layovers in both SIN and NRT. I’ll likely fill in my SIN time with an affordable ticket on AirAsia to somewhere that appeals at the time. It’s simply too complicated to try to book an onward ticket from Singapore nearly a year in advance.

    Every single flight from SAN-LAX 11 months in advance would have bumped the ticket an additional 40K miles. Crazy. Needless to say, I’ll drive the 100 miles to LAX.
