Flying economy - will need to do this trip maybe 3-4 times in the next 3 months or so.

Suggestions for best routing?
Criteria are 1) Short travel times 2) FFP miles

I know SQ and QF have the A 380 option, so might look at that to.

Can fly from either city, MAA or BLR

MH seems to offer the best connections, but only 1 flight a day. The other drawback is the BLR sector is on a 737.

Code:
MH 193   (MH) Malaysia Airline   BLR 00:45   KUL 07:30   738   
MH 129   (MH) Malaysia Airline   KUL 10:05   MEL 21:10   333   
MH 148   (MH) Malaysia Airline   MEL 14:30   KUL 21:05   333   
MH 192   (MH) Malaysia Airline   KUL 22:10   BLR 23:40   738   


I've flown SQ on the sector - simple one-stop flights - slightly longish connection (4 hour) might be a draw back. But with the SQ/ MI options, you have the option of 2 connections a day. I think SQ is withdrawing the 380 on MEL - because the flight seems to use a 77W on later dates.

SQ option:
Code:
SQ 503   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   BLR 23:05   SIN 06:05   772   
SQ 217   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   SIN 09:55   MEL 20:15   77W   
SQ 238   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   MEL 10:10   SIN 16:10   388   
SQ 502   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   SIN 20:05   BLR 21:50   772   


MI option:
Code:

MI 423   (MI) Silkair              BLR 15:50   SIN 22:55   319   
SQ 237   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   SIN 00:25   MEL 10:45   773   
SQ 218   (SQ) Singapore Airlines   MEL 00:05   SIN 05:55   77W   
MI 424   (MI) Silkair              SIN 13:10   BLR 15:00   320

Yep. TG seems to be fairly Ok too.

Which site do you use to get this data all in one screen

TG was not showing connections on the return back to India - perhaps not on the dates I was checking... Do check on the return sector before you finalize on TG - it was showing me TG MEL-BKK connecting to PG BKK-BLR, but I don't think TG/ PG work together.

I used flightstats that day, and today I used amadeus.net.
