Singapore Air – $498: San Francisco – Seoul, South Korea. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

TravelSkills negotiated a special private sale with Singapore Airlines for its nonstop service between San Francisco and Seoul for $498 roundtrip.

China Eastern has this for cheaper on some of these dates but require a connection in Shanghai. We would pay extra for nonstop and avoid any mainland Chinese airlines whenever possible.

This fare doesn’t earn miles with anyone but Singapore and Virgin Australia. Both at 10% of miles flown.
