    Are Business Saver tickets refundable for cash?

    Thanks encryptededdy. I should have put Business Saver tickets. I've just edited the title. I guess I'm just so used to mainly booking award flights although I knew I was asking about revenue tickets, so when I read over what I'd written before posting I didn't pick up the error I made with...

    Are Business Saver tickets refundable for cash?

    We currently have J award tickets SYD-AKL-PPT booked for July, flying QF for SYD-AKL with overnight in AKL and QF code share on TN AKL-PPT the next day. I received a flight change notification this morning that our AKL-PPT flight, which was booked for a Tuesday, has been put back two days to a...

    What time of day does Singapore Airlines release award seats?

    You can see flights available up until 25 March 2023 but nothing after that. (Sorry, when I posted my reply I accidentally put 25 Feb but edited it a few minutes later to 25 March)...

    What time of day does Singapore Airlines release award seats?

    They are released at 10am Sydney time in Winter and 11am when we have daylight saving time. This is also the same time that QF, BA and CX release their seats each day. SQ seats are usually released 355 days out but there have been none released for the past week, award or revenue. The last...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    In a few weeks I will be trying to book J award flights AMS-SYD in April 2023 and the AMS-SIN leg is on an A350-900. I assume that since it is a 12hr30 flight to SIN that it would not be the regional version that is being discussed here. Is there a way you can tell which version is scheduled...

    Changes to Frequent Flyer Rewards Terms & Conditions

    I have an ANZ Black Qantas Frequent Flyer Visa card. I've just received notification from ANZ about points no longer being awarded for Government charges from 27 April. I guess this includes Council Rates and Australia Post. Amex give half the amount of points on these charges so I've been...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    I have been booked to fly SYD-LHR in February on SQ242/306, both 777 flights in F after originally booking to fly in J. Last week I noticed that there was Saver availability for SQ208 MEL-SIN (777) onto SQ308 SIN-LHR on a 380. (There was no Saver availability showing at that stage for SYD-LHR...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    I phoned SQ the day after I confirmed and ticketed our F bookings on the separate days and I asked him to do seat selection since I couldn't do it online. We selected 1A for each flight and they show up if I go to Check My Trip but they don't show up if I go to "Bookings" then "Manage Booking"...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks @Matt_01 and @Cruiser Elite for your advice. I called SQ this morning and have now confirmed and ticketed Mrs Ken1 in F Saver for SYD-LHR on SQ242/306 on the original date we had booked the J flights. There was still an F Saver seat available for the day before so I have now booked and...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    I called on Sunday to ask to change our booking from the J flights to F Saver flights, one from SYD and one from MEL that seemed to be available at the time. He had it ready to confirm the Saver F bookings for both of us and my flights from MEL were no longer available as he tried to confirm it...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks @Cruiser Elite. I'll call tomorrow and confirm the J flights that we originally booked and ask them to add a long TTL for the F bookings, hopefully giving me until June if they will, or if they will remove it completely.

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks @Cruiser Elite. Do you mean for both the re-instated original booking and these reserved F bookings? Edit: Sorry I didn't read properly the first part of your reply where you said to definitely confirm the Js when I was reading what you said about asking to have the TTL extended when...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks @Matt_01. The Advantage J seats that we had on SQ222/322 do not show when doing an F search so I wouldn't be able to waitlist for those flights. Are these the flights you are suggesting that I could ask if they can extend longer before ticketing again? Mrs Ken1 is already confirmed...

    Advice re cancelled and changed connecting flights

    I called QF again this morning and got Cape Town but the operator I spoke to was very helpful this time. I have been re-booked to now fly SYD-AKL on QF145 the day before the AKL-PPT flight. I then asked about our return flights and was again told that there are no J seats available on...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    On the day they were released we booked J seats for SYD-LHR on SQ222/SQ322 which were only available as Advantage at 150K miles each for next February. A few days ago I noticed that F Saver seats were available for 163K so thought it worth trying to book in F for only an extra 13K miles each...

    Advice re cancelled and changed connecting flights

    Thanks aikman and MEL-Traveller. In the past when I've had to call QF regarding bookings it always seems that I get better service when I've been connected to an Aussie call centre. I've seen a few different phone numbers for QF posted on several QF related Facebook groups and tried a...

    Advice re cancelled and changed connecting flights

    This is proving to be very frustrating trying to sort out these flight changes. I've just spoken to QF again at 2pm today and again was not answered by the Australian call centre so I don't know what time of the day to try again. I explained about the PPT-AKL flight on Mon 15 Aug being...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks Peasant. We haven’t flown with SQ before but have flown with QF, BA and CX in J several times each on several different aircraft types but haven’t experienced the SQ angled small area to put your feet while sleeping that we’ve read about.

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    We've been watching YouTube videos and reading about J seats on SQ A380s and about the sleeping at an angle that is mentioned as being uncomfortable for a lot of people in most seats, except the bulk head seats in rows 11, 91 and 96. I usually sleep on my right side and am trying to work out...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Thanks MEL-Traveller. Yes we would prefer to have longer to be able to enjoy the lounge and have a shower but I had been wondering about the short connection times being listed if that is the only choice available when we are ready to book.
