Thanks to Lucky of One Mile at a Time, I managed to get in on the Singapore Airlines first class bonanza going on right now. Singapore Airlines is apparently upgrading their reservation system, and first class availability has been left wide open during this upgrade. While there’s some speculation these tickets might get cancelled out, it’s worth a try (and might end up with compensation).
I ended up booking a trip to Singapore in January, coinciding with the FlyerTalk SingaporeDo in January 2013 🙂 Two of the flights on the trip will be in SQ first (with a leg in ANA business and two US Air firsts), if my current itinerary stands. I ended up doing this for 160k US Airways Dividend miles + $120, to pare down my large stash of US Airways miles.
Now, fingers crossed that these reservations are honored!
