Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Allows Award Holds

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer is a frequent flyer programme I use a lot for travelling from Europe to the Middle East.

Nevertheless, being able to fly from Europe to the Middle East for just 25k miles in Business Class on… Read More

I’m trying to hold back the tears in my eyes, I really am. I can’t believe tomorrow is coming so quickly, I honestly never expected Lufthansa to announce a revenue-based Miles & More so quickly after Air France did..
