ur flight always damn good price one
400+ full fledge has to be on promotion + condition, like minimum 2 to go, 30-120days advance book

scoot 160+ also has to be also returb-for-free promo

itís not like anytime can gt kinda deal
Promo must see dates ma.
160-180not hard to grab. If you want to go anytime. Sometimes full fledged beats last min travel.

yup agree ... full fledged sometimes cheaper than budget airline
seen before SQ sydney 500+ flying few days later ... but scoot pricing is more than that ...

If you intend to fly js, can always ask price match. But to save 10% for comfort, not worthy.

Fly 9-12, means how many days in Tw for 400 dollars?
You call that worthy?
Unless you leave is limited, if not plan elsewhere and do not waste time.

Maybe he find more pleasure sitting on the plane than being on holiday.

Nowadays Cathay, Eva and China Airline about SGD400++ and Singapore Air $600++ for low peak..

Normally if really want real good promo is during Airline anniversary, new route, travel fair and also check with travel agency as certain days they charter flight so is cheaper to buy from them instead....

Sign up for card that provides decent mileage.
Gives you like 15k sqmiles can redeem one way.
Use it for return sector for 30kg of luggage and pay just less than 40sgd in tax.
Very worth it.
Do consider this hack.

you would be surprised that even for 4d, the promo fare sold out quite fast
some would prefer a short trip though ...

You can choose to come back on 12nd aug onwards too.
Using 12aug sunday as an example, cox fares are usually more expensive for sun arrival into Singapore , generally across many destinations ...

Fly Jan to Jun , including the school holidays period ...

I am a frequent scoot traveler.
So usually i will buy ahead like 6 months in advance.
Of course if you cannot plan ahead, then no choice.
Choose what is suitable anytime.
If you ask me pay 600 on sq, i will fly Eva.
Last min flight on Eva costs me 483 in 2017.
So i will fly Eva.
