When to buy SQ ticket for year end?

I am planning to head to Sydney for the New Year countdown at the end-of-the-year. Accommodation settled. Right now, ticket price is around 1.2K. Does it make sense to get my tickets now or wait abit later for promotion?

Current promotion is $828 but only until August. Concerns is late Dec to Jan could be blackout period for promotion. Also, can use KF points to redeem? (how much?)

you can wait. and end up with having no seats even if you have the money. do you know how popular flights to and fro australia are? they aren't only doing the singapore and/or asia market. people from europe fly to australia year end for summer, to escape winter and also cos they have plenty of holidays (year end). and they usually have booked their flights ahead.

The rule of thumb for international air travel is to buy tickets 6-12 weeks in advance, though over New Years is going to be a bit tricky unless you're taking an extra week or so each side. If that promotion covers the period you want to travel, then go ahead and book it right now; otherwise wait for October.

Yr answers are only good for low season.

During peak peak season, all the SQ cheap cheap category (V,T,N,Q,E,B) will all be taken.
Leftover the most expensive Y or S Class which is almost double or triple the price for the cheapest ticket.

TS. Which dates are u going?
Let me have the dates n i will tell u how much or which class is available.

I would buy now. You're talking about Winter Holidays in Europe, Summer Holidays in Australia, Christmas and NY all in 1. In a nutshell, its going to be crazy getting tickets at the very last minute.

If price is a concern, get Scoot Biz. Its not exactly J class but at least its Y+.
