On November 25th, Singapore Airlines will cease operations of its record breaking 100-passenger all-business-class non-stop flight from Newark (EWR) to Singapore (SIN) aboard the four-engine Airbus A340-500. The flight which began in 2004, is currently the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight. The second longest flight, Los Angeles (LAX) to Singapore (SIN) ended on October 22nd earlier this year.

Here’s the good news, you can still use points and miles to redeem an award and experience this unique flight. Availability is limited to Singapore Airline’s own KrisFlyer members, but transfers into that program are easy via American Express Membership Rewards (1:1 instant) and SPG transfers (1:1).  Better yet, awards booked on Singapore’s site receive a 15% discount.  …and even better – there’s remarkable amazing low level Saver award availability when flying from Singapore to Newark almost every day this month! A one-way Saver award will cost you 85,000 points pre-discount while Standard awards are 135,000 points pre-discount.  Newark to Singapore has no Saver availability but does have quite a few days with Standard seats (114,750 after discount).

Unfortunately, these awards are currently not available via Star Alliance partner award bookings.

As a travel and aviation enthusiast, I feel very fortunate that I got to experience this flight (both ways) and you can see that Trip Report here – Singapore Airlines Trip Report – Newark to Singapore Business Class – The World’s Longest Flight.

I am trying to find some availability but none for Nov 9th SIN-EWR. There is some for Nov 8th though, so just 6 days later. Do you think they open up availability within 7 days?

@Skwok – I monitored most of this week and they were opening up space about 24 hours prior. If they don’t, might be worth being flexible to take the flight before it ends.
