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 or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

The world’s longest flight is going to (re-)launch between Newark (EWR) and Singapore (SIN) this October. And if you’re interested in booking this AvGeek bucket list flight to an awesome destination, now is a great time to do so. Round-trip flights on the nonstop are currently pricing at just $1,297 round-trip in premium economy, with itineraries on the inaugural flight starting at $1,347 round-trip.

No matter what class of service you fly, Singapore Airlines is known for its excellent service. But, what about the seat you’ll be sitting in for around 37 hours? Thankfully, Singapore intentionally re-designed its premium economy seat for the rigors of the ultra-long-haul.
