Singapore Airlines will be rostering a brand new A380 on the Heathrow route from 16th February, operating the SQ305 / SQ322 service.

This will be on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  From April 7 onwards, there will be a switch and it will operate as SQ317 on the London-Singapore leg, flying on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Be aware that the airline may need to switch aircraft at short notice for operational or technical reasons.  If you need to head to Singapore, however, it is worth targeting this departure if you can.

    The spend tracker on my Gold card has just appeared after 12 days.

  • Myer says:

    I feel obliged to say that this “churning” of cards is in my opinion scamming and whilst it might very well fall within the letter of the law it certainly falls far short of the spirit!
    I find it unpleasant and low and I am shocked to see it actively promoted on this website!

    • Anna says:

      Nonsense. It’s completely within the Terms and Conditions of the card issuer, and in no way illegal. Are you saying Amex are so vulnerable to exploitation that they need some kind of protection from the general public?!

      Interesting that you’ve posted exactly the same comment in 2 comments sections today. Happy Trolling.

        Great spot Alan!! Rob, I hope you can stop these trolls ruining your site.

    Can one transfer Shangri-la points between accounts? Spouse or other relatives?

  • R M says:

    Could anybody help me with a query I have about Singapore’s loyalty scheme please.

    Reading through the Kris Flyer (Singapore Airlines loyalty scheme) information pages it states that you can achieve Silver status for a year upon earning 25,000 elite miles and Gold status for earning 50,000 miles. If I transferred 25,000 Amex rewards points to my Singapore account (with intent on redeeming them eventually) does that mean I would reach Silver Kris Flyer status? Or do the 25,000 points need to be earned from flying on Singapore flights?

    • Rob says:

      No, those are only redeemable miles and not status miles.

    • Liz says:

      Remember Kris Flyer miles are only valid for 3 years regardless of whether you earn or add more to your account.

    OT: 250-1000 bonus clubcard points on Braun shavers and hair removal products through 31/1 at Direct.

    I wish Singapore Airlines didn’t always have the bed made up in their promotional photos! It looks like a hospital bed to me with the chair next to it. But looks a bit better when its folded up, tho still a bit clinical
