Ex-EU Prague to US deals from £1068
Although Prague is somewhat out of the way of you are going to the US, there are some amazing deals around for flying business class currently. The deal includes plenty of different oneworld, Skyteam and Star Alliance airlines. Flying from Prague would also give you a chance to earn some extra valuable miles and tier points too. However, if you are interested, don’t hang around as the offer expires on 21 September 2017.
I normally use Dublin as my preferred ex EU point to the US but, if like me, you are getting sick of the sight of it, this may be worth considering. Despite its reputation as a stag night destination, Prague is beautiful and has plenty of lovely restaurants and hotels making it worth a stop off. BA fly from Heathrow to Prague so you could easily use a positioning flight to get some more Avios and tier points or use Avios for that portion.

Singapore airlines sale
Singapore Airlines have always been one of my favourite airlines, although I haven’t flown them for a while after switching my allegiance to OneWorld. They currently have a sale on which whilst cheap compared to an ex EU bargain or Finnair from the UK, offers some very reasonable fares. Singapore are part of Star Alliance so you won’t earn any Avios here but you could credit them to a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account or if you joined Singapore’s KrisFlyer you could use them on Virgin or any Star Alliance airlines. You can top up Virgin Atlantic miles using the MBNA credit card or Amex Membership Rewards points.
I will be flying on Singapore Airlines to Auckland next year in an ex EU from Stockholm. They have always had great service, delicious food with Lobster to order from the ‘Book the Cook’ menu and the largest business class seats that I have seen. Obviously, I shall be writing a full review of the different aircraft types including the A350. In the meantime, if you fancy trying it the best fares are:
- Langkawi from £2100
- Kuala Lumpur from £2100
- Singapore from £2510
- Ho Chi Minh City from £2110
- Bangkok from £2115
- Phuket from £2115
- Perth from £2960
You must book by 24 September 2017 and travel 1 October 2017 – 30 September 2018. You can find the sale page here.
