With effect from 7 Dec 2017, Singapore Airlines will be amending the award chart for redemptions on Star Alliance partners.

You can compare the old chart here,

with the one below.

A quick comparison will reveal the following:

  1. There are no changes to award redemptions in Economy Class.
  2. There are no changes to award redemptions in all classes for Southeast Asia, South America, Central/South Africa, and Central/South Asia.
  3. There is an increase in award redemptions in Business and First Class for all other regions.

As usual, I am not an advocate of using KrisFlyer miles to redeem flights on Star Alliance partners, simply because it is generally not worth it to do so. Moreover, with all changes to Business and First Class award redemptions in high demand routes showing an upward trend, it is evident that finding a sweet spot will be increasingly difficult, if not impossible.

Study the new charts and be sure of the miles you’ll need if you can only be ticketed on or after 7 Dec 2017.
