Airfare to Singapore

Post by bulldog09 » Tue, 26 Feb 2008 11:27 pm

Hey all,

I just secured a summer internship in Singapore, so I'm looking at buying plane tickets. I'll be flying from Chicago O'hare and my dates are roughly 5/31 - 8/2

The cheapest I've found are on ANA (stops over in Tokyo) for around $1550. Is there a travel agent that I can find cheaper fares? Any other tips? Thanks so much.

Not sure how price sensitive you are, but if you hate air travel then I highly recommend the SQ (SIA) flight LAX-SIN direct. It's a long flight, about 15 hours (longest commercial non-stop sector in the world) but it saves having a few connections where bad things usually happen. The SIA website stated above will give you their standard pricing, then check the usual suspects such as expedia etc. Hope this helps.

I think since bull dog is working as an intern and mentioned 'cheap' twice in his/her brief post that SQ may be too pricey. If not, go for it. Check out Northworst and United too, since your dates are flexible you may get lucky.

Also, I know people who have taken that ANA flight, they always take a few days in Tokyo since it's basically a bonus trip. Expensive yes, but maybe just for a few days?

Sometimes Cathay has that 30 day ticket which allows you to fly anywhere on Cathay for one price $999 - $1499. They are based out of Hong Kong but still worth it if you want to see the region.

Remember that domestic flights in the US are probably more than regional flight around SE Asia. So your flight from ORD - LAX could be 3 times the cost of flying into Bangkok (or KL) and taking Jetstar or Tiger to Singapore.

Good luck.
