Qatar 1.1k + $250 for another airfrance flight
British airways 1.9k for premium econ

tot of trying Qatar as its a newer plane.

With the exception of SQ, I have taken the other airlines u mentioned here to Europe in recent years.

AF's plane for the SIN - Paris leg is rather new. If there is a promo, you can probably save $200 if you fly via KLM (with transit at Amsterdam). KLM's plane is not new though so opt for AF if possible if you fly with KLM-AF...

For me both Qatar and Emirates planes are about the same. Newish but personally I prefer Emirates due to better service standards and food quality.

Of the 3 airlines, if price is same, I would opt for AF if you want to fly direct. If you prefer a stopover, choose the one with shorter transit time. If transit time is about the same, I will recommend Emirates. Do note that a particular Emirates flight does a technical stop at Colombo en route to Dubai and that is a flight that I would avoid...

lufthansa is having promo. Just bought multi-city SG into Rome and out of Paris to SG, both with transit at Frankfurt at $914 for Dec-Jan period. Pretty good deal imo.

Hey fluxos! Mine is opposite from yours, fly into Paris and out of Rome. Have you taken Lufthansa before? How's it?

I bought my London tickets for next April at $1212 per pax with a morning flight out of SG and night flight out of London.

was hunting around looking at Qatar, AF, Emirates but worry about the transit esp with QT or EM so still settle for our home airline.

realise the SQ price is going up and even with the recent sales, the same timing pricing is still more expensive by a few dollars.
