Most people say there are not a lot of good business class fares out of Singapore. Vietnam Airlines has one of the cheapest business class (return) air tickets from Singapore to Europe right now:

SIN-FRA (Frankfurt) from S$2536 (prices will vary slightly as the original cost will be in VND)

SIN-CDG (Paris) starts from S$2548

SIN-LHR (London) starts from S$2732

These ticket prices are just slightly more expensive than Singapore Airline’s Economy Lite’s price and definitely cheaper than Premium Economy on Singapore Airlines!

Booking Period – 22May19-31Dec2019

Travel Period – 22May19-31Dec2019

I briefly checked the availability for SIN-FRA for June and December and it appears there are seat availability for these peak periods!

Booking Class – I

As Vietnam Airlines belongs to Skyteam, the above are the frequent flyer programmes that you can consider crediting your miles in. Vietnam Airlines’ Golden Lotus Plus program credits 150%, whereas Korean Air Skypass credits 125% and Delta Air credits 100% of the miles.

In fact, you can even book a one way air ticket, and the price is not expensive at all! Only $1389 for a one way Business Class ticket from Singapore to London? So if you take a look at the flights below, the SIN-HAN leg is an airbus A321 and the long-haul HAN-LHR is the new dreamliner B787.

Here are some photos of the Boeing 787 cabin, which is very new. (Photos from One Mile At A Time)

You will also receive an amenity kit for this long haul business class flight, containing the essentials like socks, eye mask, toothbrush kit, comb, ear plugs and moisturising lotion.

The SIN-HAN leg is on the older A321 plane which Shutterwhale had reviewed previously. Like Singapore Airline’s cousin Silk Air’s regional business class seats,  these are not fully flat beds and are in a 2-2 configuration. Here are some photos from his website:
