Singapore Airlines has a very good deal from Los Angeles to the largest cities of India or Indonesia: Mumbai and Jakarta. Both routes price as low as $849 for travel in March on early week departures. These fares are several hundred dollars cheaper than normal, an unusual sale for PE seats.
For mileage run purposes the Mumbai route returns 22,400 miles, with Jakarta providing 18,400; turnaround can be as short as a 2-day stay for either city. Note that Singapore PE flights earn 100% miles for United Airlines and most Star Alliance partners, but earn no Premier Qualifying Dollars for United. See WhereToCredit.com for more mileage earning information. Book directly with Singapore Airlines, Orbitz, or Expedia.
Singapore Airlines’ premium economy provides greater legroom and seat width than main cabin seats. Fares come with priority boarding and free baggage, plus a “Book the Cook” option that allows for pre-flight meal choice. These are welcome amenities given the 17+ flight time to Singapore, so take advantage now.
