Singapore Airlines’ Excellent First Class Award Availability To/From The US

Singapore Airlines is known for their excellent passenger experience in all cabins. The airline is interesting in how they market their cabins, given that the forward-most cabin on their 777s is “First Class,” while the forward-most cabin on their A380s is “Suites.”

The good news when it comes to redeeming miles on Singapore Airlines is that the program is a lot more accessible than most people realize:

— Singapore KrisFlyer is transfer partners with all four major transferable points currencies — Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou, and Starwood Preferred Guest
— Singapore Airlines blocks off a vast majority of premium cabin redemptions to partner airline frequent flyer programs, so if you want to redeem on Singapore in a premium cabin you’ll want to book directly through KrisFlyer
— Singapore KrisFlyer lets you waitlist award tickets, and those waitlists clear a surprising amount of the time
