    KrisFlyer award as VA WP.

    Hi all I've got an upcoming reward booking with SQ (booked via KF) and I was just wondering if I will get my VA WP benefits (extra baggage, etc)? I am not able to put my velocity number on the booking and both the VA & KF contact centres have been very unhelpful.

    Gluten Free Food & Inclusive Fares

    Since the introduction of the F&B for all passengers I have had a lot of grief in being accommodated for my dietary requirements when flying in Y. This is the situation I am faced with almost every time I fly (always on flexi fare), and I am not joking or exaggerating; (FA) ask if I would like...

    Recent Decline of VA service

    As a regular VA (flexi & J) flyer and regular poster on this form. I have noticed a recent decline in the service I have received and the general VA sentiment around AFF. Particularly, the flexi meal offerings being a snack with only water, tea and coffee included. I can appreciate that...

    Flexi meal 'flexibility'

    Whenever flying on a flexi fare I opt out of having a wrap for obvious reasons and usually go for a pack of the moorish nuts instead. On all of my previous flights this has been given to me for no price (probably about 20 flights) and I assume its because the FA's know that for frequent flyers...
