Bottom line

If it’s not an error-fare, this is an amazing fare for a long-haul flight in Business Class from Europe to Asia.

To get to Europe, Asia-based travellers may consider paying for one-way Economy Class fares (for as little as S$377), or, redeem miles for award tickets in Economy, Premium Economy or Business Class.

As there is a good chance that this is an error fare, it is advisable to defer making firm travel plans for at least the next couple of weeks.
