Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
This is quite possibly one of the best business-class deals to Asia we’ve ever seen. You can currently book a one-way or round-trip flight from JFK to Singapore in Etihad business class for $1,180 or $2,391, respectively. The JFK to AUH segment will either be operated by the 777 or A380, and then you’ll fly on a Dreamliner from Abu Dhabi to Singapore. Etihad’s A380 (and Dreamliner) cabin is absolutely fantastic, so you’re definitely in for a treat. Note that this flight may book into Z class rather than W, in which case it wouldn’t earn miles with AA.
