I was mucking around on the SQ website, daydreaming about my next flight, and noticed that they offer JetBlue flights via their website. I notice that the Krisflyer section doesn't mention them as a partner. I was wondering if anyone knows if that list on the website is out of date.

I guess the lack of information is due to the partnership still being up for approval? From the press release:



Under the proposed agreement, Singapore Airlines would add its ‘SQ’ designator code on JetBlue-operated flights beyond its U.S. gateway at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to 16 key destinations:

  • Austin, Texas
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Buffalo, New York
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Chicago, Illinois (O’Hare)
  • Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Florida
  • Houston, Texas
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Orlando, Florida
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Portland, Maine
  • Rochester, New York
  • Syracuse, New York
  • Tampa, Florida
  • Washington D.C. (Dulles)
  • West Palm Beach, Florida

In turn, JetBlue would put its ‘B6’ designator code on five daily Singapore Airlines flights to/from the U.S., including:


  • Los Angeles (LAX) – Tokyo (NRT) – Singapore (SIN)
  • New York (JFK) – Frankfurt (FRA) – Singapore (SIN)
  • San Francisco (SFO) – Hong Kong (HKG) – Singapore (SIN)
  • San Francisco (SFO) – Seoul (ICN) – Singapore (SIN)

I have never flown with JetBlue but I have heard great things from my cousin in Austin. Judging by the Singapore Airlines website, to get to Austin, I could do:

MEL-SIN-ICN-SFO with SQ & SFO-AUS with VX

OR

MEL-SIN-FRA-JFK with SQ & JFK-AUS with B6


So essentially, a mini RTW? I tried to look up the rules about stopovers selecting a flight to the US via Asia and then from the the US via Europe to Asia. However, all I got was information for SIN, HKG & ICN. I also notice that there is no points accrual with non airline partners. I guess that means no point earnings with JetBlue. Well that is disappointing. :(

I checked flights to ORD and yep, no United love. Well, I would much rather fly with JetBlue based on what I've heard. But I could earn points on United!
