United Airlines: Fly Roundtrip Los Angeles to Singapore for $384


The fare war continues between the West Coast and Singapore, and I'm absolutely loving it. As I posted last week, an influx of competition between the US and Singapore has sparked a significant fare ware between all carriers who service the Southeast Asia destination. From Chinese airlines to all American carriers, each one is vying for a piece of the pie. For $270 one-way, you're able to fly from San Francisco (SFO) to Singapore (SIN) with China Eastern. A quick search today still shows plenty of availability with your best bet being Tuesday departures.

The Flightdeal recently reported roundtrip fares (and, I repeat, roundtrip) between Los Angeles (LAX) and Singapore (SIN) on United Airlines for $384 including taxes and fees. The fare is promoting the airlines new nonstop service from Southern California's mainstay onboard their new fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners, a nonstop flight reaching almost 18 hours of flying time.

Fares are eligible for outbound travel by early-December 2017. If you're still able to find this fare, I recommend you book quickly as these promotional fares will likely be taken up.

Overall

I love a good fare war, particularly on a route that offers an incredible array of services like Singapore Airlines 5-star experience. While the fare I shared last week was for a mediocre airline like China Eastern, this week's fare is coming for United Airlines whose brand new planes are designed with intent. While the fares for this round may be gone, this is the second wave of low fares on this route to come out from the airline in a month, so I wouldn't be surprised if they release a few more this travel season.
