[AMA] Tomorrow I'm flying Singapore Airlines Business Class from BCN to MEL for 50€ thanks to OzBargain

Yep, it's me again! You might remember me from similarly awful posts, including this one from July

This time, it's thanks to 150K KrisFlyer points which I was able to accrue thanks primarily to this wonderful OzBargain hack. Additionally I topped it up with some bonus points from another free Citibank card which I churned earlier in the year.

Happily Singapore Airlines charges much lower redemption "taxes" than Qantas does, so I only had to pay 50€ on top of the free points.

As usual I'll be posting pics on Instagram

    What's the plan if the govt shut the border for a few months or Singapore go into lockdown for a long duration because of lolmicron?

    have a good time mate

      He has his Citibank card, and his Instagram, to support him

        I agree on this. When even our own states are shutting borders, it would be madness to try and travel now.

          Madness to fly into northern hemisphere winter.

          Having lived in Europe, in December and Jan I'd fly to places like Gibraltar / Sicily which is the very southern tip of Europe as you can get and during the day it might be t-shirt weather but nights would still be chilly. Even in Sicily further up Mt Edna there will still be snow.

    Have you been wearing a mask during your time in Europe?

    • Not that much. Probably similar to Melbourne right now I guess. Depends on where; in Serbia for example I hardly used it at all.

  • How did you get to BCN?

    • Ignore, I just saw your other post.

      Do you think you'll be disappointed, having been in first class?

        Well it certainly won't compare to Emirates first class, but I have slummed it in biz before so I guess I will cope :-)

    Nice mate enjoyed the updates last time, have a good flight !

  • Enjoy the flight.

    To your knowledge, did you get COVID whilst in Europe asymptotic or otherwise?

    I know you were vaccinated, just curious as a lot of people say “everyone in Europe has had COVID”, and that you still sometimes feel sick if vaccinated.

    • Not to my knowledge, no. But as you say it is often asymptomatic, so can't know for sure.

  • Also what did you get up to in Europe?

    • +3

      Eating, drinking and cycling mostly. Catching up with friends and family in various places.

    Try not to breathe on the plane and it'll be fine.

  • cant believe I didnt see this citibank payall "hack"

    good to see its valid from april 2021 to october 2022. time to get on the train, CHOO CHOO

  • Did you have to compromise on departure date and departure city in order to get a business class seat?

    • Yeah it always requires flexibility. BCN or MXP were my preferred departure cities and managed to get it on the day I wanted in the end. Took some stuffing around though.
