WELCOME TO EDITION 841 of GRAPEVINE
Off to Cognac for the 2022 harvest
Last 31 March 2022, when I flew to Paris on Singapore Airlines, the return ticket was S$1,305.
Next month, 20 September 2022, I will be heading to France again. If I had booked on SQ, the return ticket would be almost S$3,800.
Friends who fly Business Class on the same carrier has been informing their return tickets to Paris are between S$12,000 and S$13,000.
After three flights on Singapore Airlines since October 2021, I am reverting to Air France as that is the airline I used most (and because I am not worried about having to do any pre-departure Covid test flying AF).
The price of my Air France Singapore/Paris; Paris/Bordeaux; Nice/Paris; and, Paris/Singapore ticket comes to S$1,885.
And I shadn’t have to wear a mask on AF.
Wishing you A Very Good Week Ahead!
