Passengers can also redeem KrisFlyer miles for their seats on the A380 restaurant. The pricing for this ranges from 6,250 miles for economy up to 75,000 miles for a suite. However, as One Mile At A Time points out, this is an exchange rate of just 0.8 SGD per mile, which isn’t the best value.
Fantastic great idea. Ray.
