Have to do a SIN-LAX-SIN trip just 1 to 2 days after Christmas to visit someone. Just wondering what recommendations expert MilePointers might have for this trip? Preferably, *A flights since I've just received *G and hope to maximise it's use *even if it's to flash it once* Took the TG Premium Y the last time round and totally enjoyed it, but rates are up to $4k now. Since its on a personal account, cost is also an important factor. Also hoping to fly out of LAX on the return leg anytime after 6pm. Qns: a) Should I be hard up on *A flights or even consider SkyTeam or OneWorld (noting that I hardly fly with any of them) b) Is SIA really the best option (considering Y seats are extremely uncomfortable, but service amazing). Any plus points for opting for SQ as KF Gold? c) Should I even consider Eva Premium Y or Philippines J class as options? Just a whole bunch of that! Thanks!
