Singapore Airlines just announced a new sweepstakes for frequent flyer fans called “Travel in Luxury,” which offers a chance to win:
- 2 round-trip Business Class tickets from the U.S. to Singapore
- Connecting tickets with Singapore Airlines codeshare partner Virgin America
- A four-night stay at the five-star Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore
Running now through April 29, this sweepstakes also includes the opportunity to answer the daily Question of the Day, which will award 5,000 KrisFlyer miles apiece to ten different winners each day. I’ve flown Singapore Airlines business class twice – once on an A330 from Singapore to Male, Maldives (including a quick layover in the Krisflyer lounge at Singapore’s Changi airport) and an A340-500 from Newark to Singapore – and enjoyed both experiences, so this is a contest I’d be excited to enter myself. To enter either/both elements of the sweepstakes, visit travelinluxury.flysingaporeair.com.
To register for the grand prize trip to Singapore, click the button called “Enter Now” on the site’s home page.

For a chance to win one of ten daily prizes of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles each, click the button called “Question of the Day” and answer a different daily quiz about Singapore Airlines products, services and partners. You can answer a question every day of the contest – as many times as you’d like – and ten new winners will be chosen every day until April 29. Each of the ten daily prizes of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles can be redeemed for a cash discount on Singaporeair.com through the airline’s Pay With KFMiles Program, or can be used towards travel rewards and seat upgrades on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir or any of its Star Alliance network partners.
KrisFlyer is also a transfer partner of Amex Membership Rewards – the points program of cards like the Platinum and Premier Rewards Gold – and Starwood Preferred Guest. The program also releases a lot more award availability on Singapore Airlines itself to its own members, so while you might tend to bank your Star Alliance miles elsewhere, it could be worth racking up the KrisFlyer miles and considering a partner transfer if you want to book Singapore Airlines awards, especially in premium cabins. I personally loved my international business class experience on the world’s longest commercial flight (18 hours, 30 minutes) a couple years back, which I managed to book for all of 60,000 miles and $2.50.
It was aboard one of Singapore’s erstwhile all-business-class flights and had just 100 seats total in a 1-2-1 configuration, so it was a pretty rarefied experience.
Though Singapore doesn’t fly EWR-SIN on this particular aircraft anymore, it does offer a similar business class on many planes (though it’s also introducing a new business class seat), and I can definitely vouch for both the service and the comfort – as well as a pretty decent menu!
Though I wasn’t as wowed by Singapore’s regional business class on my flight from Singapore to Male, it was still pretty nice and I would definitely fly it again.
It just reclined to an angled lie-flat, but that was comfortable enough for a quick nap en route to my destination.
Singapore’s regional business class also features “Book the Cook” service, where – if you book at least 24 hours in advance – you can choose from over 60 dishes created by the airline’s council of chefs. Could be fun thing to take advantage of.
The “Travel in Luxury” sweepstakes runs through April 29. If you like the look of Singapore Airlines’ business class, participate in the airline’s “Travel in Luxury” sweepstakes now through April 29 by registering for their grand prize trip and/or answering a daily question at travelinluxury.flysingaporeair.com. There’s no telling how much longer these cards will be around and available for new applications because of the Marriott takeover, so now might just be the perfect time to apply. Apart from hotel redemptions, you can transfer Starpoints to over 30 airline partners, and now also transfer points from Starwood to Marriott Rewards at a 1:3 ratio, opening up even more redemption options.
