Today’s deal is not cheap at £2,487 but is the cheapest fare on Singapore Airlines First Class I have seen. The deal is booked with Lufthansa and gets you a 12-hour flight in the Singapore First Class Suite to Singapore.
The flight originates in Helsinki, Finland, flying Lufthansa Business Class to Frankfurt and then Singapore Airlines First Class to Singapore. On the Singapore flight, you will be on an A380, which features the fully enclosed First Class Suite, where adjacent suites even convert to a double room with a double bed! Note that the Frankfurt – Singapore route is not on the newest A380, so the suites are the older style, but are still excellent. The deal can be booked on Lufthansa using multi-city search or for about £100 more on Expedia here, which may work out cheaper if you want to add on a hotel.
What: Lufthansa Business Class Helsinki HEL – Frankfurt FRA and Singapore Airlines First Class Suite Frankfurt FRA – Singapore SIN for £2,487.
Offer: This is an amazing fare on the world’s best first class (Skytrax, 2019), with plenty of time up in the sky. For comparison, booking Frankfurt to Singapore direct with Singapore Airlines is £5,579 and exactly the same itinerary, but originating from London City is £3,505 per person.
Availability: Available only on this route as a multi-city trip. Stopovers charged extra. Fare availability throughout 2020.
Book By: Unknown
The cheapest method is to build a multi-city trip on Lufthansa. There are lots of possible date combinations from January 2020 so have a play around. Stopovers (e.g. in Frankfurt) will cost extra (around £120 from my searching). This flight originates from Helsinki in Finland so you will need to position yourself there. Round trip flights on Norweigan start at £69 per person from London Gatwick.
Maximum Extravagance, Minimum Cost
As usual, some tips to maximise your First Class experience!
Make sure your itinerary flies the long haul segment on Singapore Airlines A380
Some routes for the same fare fly Lufthansa First Class between Frankfurt and Singapore. Although nothing to sniff at, you are getting a much better deal flying Singapore Airlines at this price. So make sure to check! Also, make sure long haul segments are in an A380 aircraft to ensure you get a suite and not just a first class seat.
Get the full Changi Airport First Class experience
Use the dedicated first class check-in area at Changi Airport. It is in a different area from the normal check-in desks. You will be seated whilst a porter checks you in and sorts out your bags. You will then go through your own security and immigration queue, away from the rest of the airport! You will get a special ticket into The Private Room, which is only accessible to Singapore Airlines First Class passengers flying outbound from SIN. In this exclusive environment, you’ll be treated to fine dining and only the best champagne!
