Here’s a video for the intro post on my Treat Yo’ Self trip report.
I’m going to be honest with you – this trip has been an indulgence. But, I did have to fly an economy flight from Phuket to Bangkok, so I feel like I earned the Singapore Suites experience.
Yes, this is the trip report with my experience in the legendary Singapore Suites. I think it’s because they have been so elusive, that their myth and my desire to fly them has grown. If you don’t know, there was a major glitch when Singapore was updating their website in June, and they accidentally released a s*** load of premium cabin award availability. This never happens, so as you can imagine, there was significant amount of buzz going on. I barely booked the flights in time before the loophole was closed.
I was already pumped about flying Singapore first class, because it’s legendary for their service. Then, things got real. Singapore changed the equipment I was flying, so instead of first class I got bumped up to “Suites” on their A-380. Yes, they have a class above first.
Now, you can actually book Singapore Suites through their loyalty program, KrissFlyer, which is a transfer partner of Membership Rewards. There will be another post on this shortly.
In addition to flying Singapore Suites, hitting up the SilverKriss lounges, and getting vip treatment in the private room – I’ll be reviewing Lufthansa first class on the 747-8i, and Thai Airways first class on a 747. It doesn’t stop there. I’ll also review their lounges, a couple of hotel stays, and even a train ride when my Lufthansa flight in Frankfurt was canceled.
To say the least – it has been a trip of a lifetime, and it may be too much pampering at one time. Maybe not. But, it was all made possible with miles and points, which I guess makes this trip possible again. I earn the majority of miles and points from signing up for rewards cards, and using my cards for everyday spending. Boom.
I feel very, very grateful to be able to travel like this, and I hope that the reviews are useful for you as you contemplate burning your miles on first class travel.
Noob it up.
