Could be. I fly on a lot of *A metal but want to know which program I should credit the points to, to get the best usage of points on business class award seats.

i would say SQ has the best deal.

A good amount of frequent flyer seats and a low points cost - though they do charge a hefty fuel tax surcharge.

Also watch out for SQ 3 year wolling expiry of points (though you can extend once for a small fee)

Singapore Airlines are good if you can get flights on the "saver" rate. You should be able to get the rate if you are flexable with your travel dates.

However if you cant get the saver its really not worth it as the points needed jumps up way to much, the full rate can be 4-5 times the saver!!!

 

Taxes and surchargers would be around $1000
