    Transit through SIN

    Hi my transit in SIN was smooth and easy as I had boarding passes to my connecting flight. So I was able to go to the lounge at T3 at SIN after arriving into T1. I didn't need a PDT as I was only transiting in SIN. If your bags are through checked as they should be on award bookings, you won't...

    Transit through SIN

    Just to update, QF agent at MEL through checked my bags to final destination. She said it was very easy to add the other PNR to my QF booking as it was also a QF reward booking. The same won't be possible if I had a separate OW PNR.

    Transit through SIN

    My initial flight out of MEL is a paid revenue QF flight. Only my connecting flight out of SIN is a reward flight booked and ticketed on QF. As per their website, they should through check-in my bags to final destination. I will have just over 2 hours transit time in SIN. I am planning to go...

    Transit through SIN

    That is precisely my plan of action if Qantas won't through check my bags. I have done that successfully in the past pre-covid.

    Transit through SIN

    My trip is in the middle of April. I don't intend to clear immigration and enter SIN. Just wanted to know if Qantas will through check my bags for reward bookings as they say on their website. But knowing Qantas they are so unreliable.

My arrival into CMB will be 1725 and onward connection is 0045. After collecting my bags, will i be allowed into the departure terminal or will...

    Connecting at CMB

    I have already applied and got a free transit visa. I guess it should make it faster at immigration upon arrival. My biggest concerns are incoming flight arriving on time (flight radar stats show 93%), bags coming through as priority (being J class) and getting through security at departure...

    I am not even sure if they offer express cards through security. I am in business on both flights though.

    Connecting at CMB

    My singapore airlines flight has been rescheduled to depart CMB at 0045 hrs from 0110 hrs originally. Now its cutting my time fine! I'll still have 1 hour and 45 minutes to clear immigration, collect bags and proceed to check in. Contemplating whether to take an earlier arrival flight and spend...

    Connecting at CMB

    The flight coming into CMB has been re-timed to arrive at 2215 hrs and my next onward connection on SQ is at 0110 hrs. So i have opted to fly this itinerary. That leaves me with 3 hrs at CMB, technically 2 hrs to clear immigration, collect bags and check in again. I will apply for the online ETA...

    Australia signs Open Skies agreement with India

    I flew the AI dreamliner 787 to Paris when it was introduced. The hard product was comfortable with flat beds while the soft product was just acceptable in comparison. I strongly wish TATA took over AI and yes a direct connection to Indian cities would definitely be welcomed. I was excited with...

    Hi I have an upcoming trip where I will be connecting at CMB from UL to SQ on separate PNR. I have 2 and half hours to do that. Is that too tight? Will be in J in both flights coming into CMB and departing from CMB on SQ. Will i have to pick up my bags and check in again? I emailed the...

    Earn and Redeem on Scoot

    I have made a booking on scoot. I didn't log in with my krisflyer when i made the booking. Now I can't see any option to add my krisflyer details to my booking through the booking manager. I am thinking of furnishing my details during check in.

    My recent changi experience with family

    After we rested at the transit hotel in the morning, we were ok. To our surprise, the little ones were well behaved despite having to walk a bit at 3 am. The long transit was a result of cheap J fares. While i planned and booked t tickets in advance, I had completely overlooked the time we were...

    My recent changi experience with family

    A room at the Crowne plaza was $345 per day as I did inquire about it. It is within the terminal though but have to go through immigration. We didn't take that option as we were quite tired at 3 am and had to walk a lot to cross immigration to go to the hotel (the inter terminal trains don't...

    My recent changi experience with family

    Having made many trips over the years to the subcontinent through changi I have always been amazed at the overall functioning of Changi airport although my last few trips have been through other south east asian airports. Recently I had a trip where I was flying back to MEL with a long transit...

    Through check baggage QF-9W

    This is infact my first ever international flight on QF and even this is ticketed on EK. Now I understand why QF are at loss and their share prices tumbling! I have done similar connections on different PNRs several times on different carriers. Usual trips in the past have been on MH-9W on...

    Through check baggage QF-9W

    But isn't 9W an airline partner of QF? So through check in should be possible with partners right? I have had similar experience with Virgin and SQ - Virgin checked my bags on to SQ on separate PNRs (Virgin was domestic)
