Now on sale: SIA@Home meals

Probably the most expensive home delivery meals you will ever buy, if you do decide to splurge

The last couple of weeks were rather exciting, with so much buzz and talk about SIA’s latest “Discover Your Singapore Airlines” experiences.

Over the next eight weeks, those who miss travelling will get some semblance of that experience – or at least, part of it – with possibly a chance to have a meal on SIA’s A380, perhaps order some really expensive airline premium meals home, or visit SIA Training Centre.

The first to go on sale is the SIA@Home which went live at midnight today (5 Oct 2020).

What is SIA@Home?

This is the SIA marketing spiel for SIA@Home:

Enjoy a taste of Singapore Airlines, delivered to your home. Order a home-dining experience for 2 created by our world-renowned International Culinary Panel chefs, paired with your choice of wine or champagne. For a perfect re-creation of our First Class or Business Class experience at home, purchase the all-inclusive package, which comes with the exquisite tableware and luxurious amenities available exclusively on board our flights.

Singapore Airlines

Part of the buzz came about with the leak of the prices, revealing sky-high prices for the meals you might typically savour 30,000 feet above ground.

SIA quickly plugged that gap through a reveal-all of the prices of all experiences.

A total of 10 menu packages will be available: 5 each from first and business class. According to SIA’s official prices, most of the packages will start from S$480/308 nett for first and business class menus respectively, and the base package will include a bottle of champagne or wine, as well as a pair of amenity kits.

Singapore Airlines has put out a few different packages, all of which will include a meal for two, a bottle of wine or champagne and two amenity kits as a baseline. First class orders will receive the Lalique amenities kits, while business class orders will receive the new Penhaligon’s amenities kits.

Should you use your miles?

In short: Yes you can, but no you should not.

While you can pay with your KrisFlyer miles on KrisShop, they are horrible value as they can only be used at 0.8 (Singapore) cents per mile. In comparison, even when you use your miles when you purchase air tickets on Singaporeair.com, you get better value at about 1 cent per mile.

What card should you use on KrisShop?

Krisflyer members will earn 1.5 miles when making purchases on KrisShop (remember to log in when you check out!).

If you want to earn miles on your credit card, KrisShop is processed as an online duty free merchant (MCC 5309), so these are the cards you can use:

Final thoughts

SIA@Home is certainly not a cheap endeavour and therefore, not for the faint hearted. Like we said before, don’t expect the highest quality in terms of food, but take it more as an experience. If you have incredibly high standards for food, you will be better off spending that money at some of Singapore’s finest Michelin starred restaurants.

However, if you really want to own a piece of SIA and don’t mind shelling out top dollar for the meal and the add-ons, by all means, splurge for the experience of a lifetime.

If you want to camp for the other two experiences, note that ticket sales for the Restaurant A380 @Changi and Inside Singapore Airlines will go live on 12 Oct 2020 and 1 Nov 2020 respectively, at midnight sharp. We expect those two experiences to sell pretty quickly, so good luck.
