Singapore Airlines & Silk Air have a different award chart also been devalue in Jan 19I’m confused...I think!
These charts are for star alliance, but not for Singapore airlines only routes?

Yes it can be confusing when Singapore adjusts their 2 different award charts at different times.im a bit confused too, if I was just flying Kris return ,
so its currently 296k pts + taxes from MEL to CDG or MEL TO LHR in F suites saver
accoridng to the table we are in zone 9, CDG/LHR is zone 11, so 275k points???
that cant be right?
no sir, you have nailed it on the head, thank youYes it can be confusing when Singapore adjusts their 2 different award charts at different times.
The award chart for Singapore Airlines & Silk Air changed in Jan 2019.
Prior to that change a first saver was 296k return.
Since then it has been 275k Kris miles (points) for one way advantage (page 1 of the chart) or 163k for one way saver (page 2 of the chart). Double these points for return flights. These apply for flights with all legs only on Singapore airlines or Silk air metal. The current chart is linked in post #3.
If you use Kris miles for a trip which includes one or more legs on another Star alliance carrier, you use the separate Star Alliance Award chart which is changing in April as per the first post in this thread. Current return price is 296k but will change to 326k in April 2019. Half figures for one way.
Therefore saver on Singapore planes only or flights with other Star alliance carriers will require the same number of Kris miles after April changes. Please note that there will be higher taxes payable on Star Alliance awards using Kris miles than those on Singapore/Silk air planes only.
I hope this long answer has helped rather than caused more confusion.
Yes. Krisflyer has two separate charts - one for SQ only flights and one for ones involving Star Alliance partners. Only the latter is being revised this time (they revised the SQ only chart earlier this year).the bit I dont undersand is in bold, are you saying that if you fly singapore only planes, its still goign tobe 296k after APRIL?
No 326 on both.no sir, you have nailed it on the head, thank you
so essentially its going from 296k to 326k with no changes in taxes, thats not the best but Ican live with it, beats the other premium carriers that charge $1000+ taxes via redemption
the bit I dont undersand is in bold, are you saying that if you fly singapore only planes, its still goign tobe 296k after APRIL?
yep spot onNo 326 on both.
Singapore changed from 296 last January.
That’s what I was thinking . Pay the $25usd fee . But I’m not confident they won’t make us pay the more pointsAny advantage to putting in a dummy booking now before the price increase, then just pay a change fee when the travel date(s) are confirmed? Would it be the $US25 or $US75 fee that would be charged for the change?
