Hi

I am flying MEL - LHR 15th May with Singapore Airlines, returning 1st June. I am a Krisflyer Gold member although this expires in May, we also paid a little extra originally so the seats we have booked on all legs are the premium ones on the top deck,

I am wanting to find out the best way to upgrade to Business - is there a way I can upgrade my current booking or is it more cost effective to cancel my flight and start a new booking,

Singapore Airlines have messed us about a little bit with these flights, having change the time and plane being used on our return journey three times, (I'm a fan of the A380, so disappointed that I am now on a 777)

any advice on how I can do this (while not costing the earth) would be a real help here,

ps...I havent got miles to redeem here as I used a huge chunk to reduce the cost of the original flight.

thanks

Not sure where you booked it but if it's through an agent it's fairly simple, they'll just calculate the fare difference between the J fare and what you paid, plus any tax difference and the SQ reissue fee and they can sort it out.

No need to cancel and rebook, that'll only leave you more out of pocket.

With airlines such as MH and PR, you can sometimes upgrade at the airport.

However I am not aware if SQ offers this as a way to garner some last minute revenue.
