The five-star Star Alliance member, Singapore Airlines offer cheap premium economy tickets from New York to Asian destinations. Destinations include Phuket, Bangkok, Bali, Kuala Lumpur etc. Some flights are onboard the World’s longest flight. All itineraries include 2x23kg luggage allowance and standard seat selection. The long flights are in premium economy, while the short-haul hops are in Economy.
At Singapore Airlines, all flights can be rebooked once without having to pay a rebooking fee (up to March 31, 2022, even several times). However, you would have to pay the possible price difference. You can read the exact conditions here on Singapore Airlines’ website.

Most of the new York-Singapore itineraries include the World’s longest flight. That flight is operated by an Airbus A350-900ULR (Ultra Long Range). It features a 2-4-2 seating in premium economy with a seat pitch of 95 cm. Thanks to the newest technologies, the Airbus A350 keeps cabin airflow fresher and more humid than common planes.
You can also fly the Airbus A380 via Frankfurt, so you can stretch your legs midway between the US and Singapore. Short-haul flights are operated by various types of aircraft. You can fly a Boeing 737 MAX 8, Boeing 787-10 or an Airbus widebody.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
Singapore Airlines issues the premium economy tickets in booking class R and Economy tickets in class E.

COVID regulations change regularly, that’s why we suggest you check IATA Travel Center and local government sites both before booking and before travelling. Hotels in Asia are generally cheap, but to find a good and cheap one, we suggest using our hotel search tool. If you are going to Bangkok you may like this deal.
