Is there any chance of flying two people business class Perth to New York in 2023 with 500kk Velocity points? I’m new to this and struggling to find anything…am I missing something or do I just need more points? Thanks
I was randomly searching and saw 2 business class seats available flying Perth to New York on Singapore Airlines on 6 Feb 2023. Cost per person is 139,000 points and $117 one way.
So yes it is possible to find seats but you are just short on points for a return trip for 2 people.
Thanks Kris. Is that on the Singapore Airline website as I can’t see it on the Velocity one (I assume I would have to sign up for Krisflyer)?
And correct me if I’m wrong but I’d need to transfer 215,450 V points to get 139,000 KF miles so I’d be way short for a return trip
Hi rusk74, I just checked and found three available seats from Perth to New York JFK in Singapore Airlines Business Class on 6 February 2023.
139k points + A$117.73 is with Velocity Frequent Flyer, as that’s the cap for a one-way Business Class reward on Singapore Airlines using Velocity Points. You should be able to see this on the Virgin Australia website.
Thank you Brandon. I will have a look on the laptop as I can’t seem to see it on my phone…not sure why!
Was hoping for later in the year, July/August but at least I know it is now possible if I just save up a few more points
You’re welcome! Just be aware that new carrier charges are being introduced that will add US$480 to a return Perth-Singapore-New York ticket if booked after 5 October. So I’d definitely looking at getting it sorted as soon as the dates are available.
