UPDATE: Contest is now closed to entries. We’ll announce the winner on Friday, June 30. WINNER ANNOUNCED!
Singapore Air’s new premium economy seat and service will debut on the busy San Francisco-Hong Kong route on July 22. (Flights SQ1 and SQ2) That introduction will complete the carrier’s rollout of the popular new service on all flights from all four of its U.S. gateways: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Houston.
Would you like to give the new seat a try (for free) and write about it?
Here’s how our contest works: Regular readers of the TravelSkills blog are familiar with our famous Trip Reports— where we chronicle inflight experiences on a wide variety of airlines. Over the last year, a growing number of TravelSkills readers have submitted their own Reader Reports— many of which have become some of the blog’s most popular posts!
To find the right reader for this trip, we’ve created a contest and will pick a winner for the two tickets.
Interested? Then fill out the entry form below by June 28 and tell us why YOU would be the best person for this mission. We’ll review all entries by June 30 and choose a winner based on several factors: Cleverness, eagerness, writing style, ability to take good photos with a phone or camera, and an explanation of what a trip like this would mean to you personally. (Keep your entries to less than 300 words, please.)
All we ask the winner to do is to take notes, plenty of photos and then write about your premium economy experience on Singapore Airlines. (Submitting a report to us within two weeks of your return.) That’s it! Don’t worry if you’re not a professional writer– I’m happy to help the winner craft and edit his or her Report.
Some important notes: We are only providing air transportation for this trip. The winner is responsible for all other costs related to this trip such as hotels, visas, transfers, food, etc. Both tickets must be booked together. We are not responsible for additional costs due to irregular operations such as delays and cancellations. The winner is responsible for obtaining proper visas or any other documents needed for travel to Hong Kong. We’d prefer that the winner travel on the inaugural outbound flight from SFO (Friday, July 21) to enjoy the airport and inflight festivities celebrating the service. But we realize that may not be possible– so the winner could take the trip any time before August 30. (Note: Be sure to read the full official contest rules at the bottom of the entry form!)
