How does the point/miles costs of Sydney to Paris in Singapore Airlines business class compare if redeeming via Velocity vs Krisflyer program?

Hi all, looking to book return Sydney to Paris biz class flights in May 2020 and have been playing around with 2019 costs for guidance.

When I book awards through the velocity site it pretty much only gives me etihad flights totaling ~1mil points but on krisflyer, only 420k (567k velocity).

Am I understating this correctly and why the double difference?

Am I missing something?

Hi Shaun,

The point/mile costs you quoted sounds inflated.

You want to look for Business Rewards in Velocity program or Business Saver in Krisflyer program. Anything else, it would costs much more. For this same reason, availability for these cheaper seats are limited.

Oneway Sydney - Paris with Singapore airlines costs:

105k Krisflyer miles or

139k Velocity points
