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.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday flight deals are still available for travel dates in 2016. Through the end of the day, Singapore Airlines is offering cheap flights from $498 round-trip on flights departing the US. Travel dates are available between January 10 and May 31 in 2016. Singapore’s A380 is one of the best ways to get to Europe, even if you aren’t sitting in Suites. Of course, you can always book flights in first with your KrisFlyer miles transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards.
The cheapest flights advertised are between Houston and Moscow for $499. You can also fly from Los Angeles to Tokyo or San Francisco to Seoul for $599 round-trip, and New York and Frankfurt from $699 round-trip. Singapore also has discounted fares on business-class flights, starting at just $2,699 round-trip. To take advantage of the deal, you’ll need to book by midnight tonight (Monday, November 30) at the local departure city. Keep in mind that flights may be subject to a weekend surcharge, depending on the route. Lastly, these flights might not be eligible to earn miles — economy tickets book into the K and V fare classes, although business-class seats will earn miles.
