Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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 the 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.

In October Singapore Airlines re-launched the world’s longest flight between Newark (EWR) and Singapore (SIN). Two weeks ago, we saw premium economy fares on this flight drop to just $993 round-trip. And now it’s back!

Travelers can book flights from the NYC area to Ho Chi Minh (SGN), Bali (DPS), Bangkok (BKK), Manila (MNL) and Hanoi (HAN) from $993 round-trip. Don’t want to go any further than Singapore? Nonstop flights to Singapore (SIN) are available for $1,050 from Los Angeles (LAX), $1,078 from Newark and $1,198 from San Francisco (SFO).

Just make sure to book early so you can snag one of the solo seats in the back of the cabin:

These solo seats are good, but you'll want to grab the seats on the opposite side of the cabin.

After all, you don’t want to get stuck in a middle seat on the world’s longest flight:
