Given that Avios seats in premium cabins to Singapore usually disappear instantly when booking opens, the fact that April 2024 to July 2024 is fairly wide open – for FOUR people – counts as news.
This is a screenshot taken from SeatSpy, our preferred reward seat search service, at 11.30pm on Wednesday night.
EDIT, 10.30am: These seats have pretty much all gone now
It shows days with TWO Club World (green) and TWO First (red) seats available. In reality, most days seem to have four seats. From June there are even a good number of days with six seats.
For this two week trip in June you could book for SIX in First Class or NINE (perhaps more, BA only shows nine) in Business Class:
I really would not sit around if you are interested in these. HfP readers can wipe out these seats pretty quickly on Thursday morning. Remember that there is a 24 hour cooling off period where you can cancel for free without even paying the £35 per person fee.
If any of these are A380 services they will have the old Club World seat and not the new ‘closing door’ Club Suite. You also get the older ‘no door’ First Class seat.
Let’s talk about Sydney
There is NOT a lot of availability on the Singapore to Sydney flight. Actually, it’s not bad from Sydney to Singapore from July onwards but it’s bad in the other direction.
This screenshot is for Singapore to Sydney for two in Club World. There are no days with First Class seats.
This HfP article shows the Avios needed for flights from London in all cabins on all routes.
