Singapore Airlines brings its new First Class suites to Heathrow

Business Traveller reports that 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.

This plane will have the hugely impressive new First Class suite and Business Class shell seats which we covered here.

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.

100 free Shangri-La Golden Circle points

Shangri-La Golden Circle is offering 100 free points to all members who try the new Shangri-La mobile app.

You need to download the app and log in at any point before 30th April.  No booking is required.

Full details are on the Shangri-La website site here.  The points will arrive in 2-4 weeks.  There is also a double and triple points promo for members who book and check-in via the app.

If you don’t already have a Shangri-La account then 100 points isn’t going to get you very far at most properties, although they are worth about £8.  You only need 500 points for a $50 food and beverage voucher which can be used in the bars and restaurants at the Shangri-La in The Shard for example.

Some bars and restaurants can swipe your membership card for an instant discount.  This means that you would get $10 of value from this offer with no need to collect further points.

  1. 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?

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

  3. 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
