    U can book online at:
    http://www.zuji.com.sg/web/content/sg/index.html

    currently the cheapest is royal brunei airlines($377) , followed by garuda ($391). China eastern is $400.

    Do visit http://www.singaporeair.com.sg often sometimes they got good deals. The last good deal was a few weeks ago Shanghai at $428.

    HX300/ EPL6/ EOS60D/ 17-55mmF2.8IS/ 100mmF2.8Macro/ 135mmF2L/ 70-200mmF4LIS/ 300mmF4LIS

    If it is promo, it still depends on the class ticket you are flying. Class as in Q class, V class and so on. If it is Q class you cannot earn any mileage points.

    Taken from SIA website.

    "Are all flights eligible for mileage accrual?
    Most booking fares are eligible for accrual of KrisFlyer miles. However, some booking fares, such as Economy Class tickets issued in V, Q, G, N or T booking classes on Singapore Airlines and V, Q, G, N, T, W or L booking classes on SilkAir, are ineligible for mileage accrual.

    When you book your tickets online, information on whether the fares displayed are eligible for mileage accural or not will be clearly stated. If you are booking through a travel agent, please check with the agent if your fare is eligible for mileage accural."


    So most good deals are in this class category.

    >> Usually for flights to Shanghai - where its their major base, the cancellation not so likely. But it happens for their flight to Kunming, Yunnan recently.

    Get my tickets from travel agency at Chinatown area. Usually I call them up. Think the Chinese name is Dong Feng but English name is Asia Plus. 65368156. Usually I ask them for cheapest tickets and they will tell me whether any airline promotion going on etc etc.

    I usually get my flight from MISA Travel but not sure if they get good rates for China. Just gave them a call and they recommended china eastern too.

    Preferred the 10:10am flight but it's fully booked for the date I wanted,on waiting list now. May have to go with the mid-night flight and see sunset at the airport. What time does the airport train starts operation?
