sorry experts for the possibly repeated questions,youre right again!
ive just discovered
(all in J)
Melb to Sin is
SIn to Taiwan is
Mel to Taiwan is
so its virtually free to go to taiwan, only 3k,
final question, am Iable to book a single trip from Mel to Taiwan but stay in singapore for a few days?
They will charge you the F fare MEL-TPE (and return). This entitles you to F mel-sin (and v.v.) and J class Sin-Tpe (and v.v.).sorry experts for the possibly repeated questions,
just been having a sticky beak
if I search for F Mel to Taiwan, it brings up J only, but for the same dates I do a search for Mel to Singapore in F, it comes up as available, I assume its because there is no F between Sing and Taiwan,
so to overcome this , Ineed to call , and ask for F melb to sing, and then sing to taiwan in J, and then the same return back, but If I want a free stop over, I need to book the return flight together over the phone,
so I ask for, Melb to sing in F, stopover in Sing for 3 days, then a flight J from Sing to Taiwain, and then on the way back exactly the same but just transit in Sing?
A one way F from melb to sing is 85k, will they charge me an extra 30k for the J trip to Sing to taiwan or 3k just like if I were booking J from Melb-Sing-Taiwan like "Mel_traveller" indicated?
thanks meltravellerThey will charge you the F fare MEL-TPE (and return). This entitles you to F mel-sin (and v.v.) and J class Sin-Tpe (and v.v.).

3k Extra to go from sing to taiwan in j
They've credited to SQ already? If so, KrisFlyer will need to reverse them out (not all airlines are willing to do this) and then they'd need to be credited to Velocity (and Velocity would need proof the miles haven't been credited elsewhere if it appears on your baording pass).I should know this, but don’t. I’ve been travelling with my wife in J on SQ and am in Japan at the moment. I have just noticed that my travel agent put my Kris Flyer number on the reservation, not my Velocity one as I wished, so I haven’t been credited with the rather large number of SCs for my first two flights. Can this be easily fixed and by whom?
Thanks. Bloody travel agent.They've credited to SQ already? If so, KrisFlyer will need to reverse them out (not all airlines are willing to do this) and then they'd need to be credited to Velocity (and Velocity would need proof the miles haven't been credited elsewhere if it appears on your baording pass).
I haven't done this so can't offer more assistance. In the absence of any other advice which might be forthcoming from other AFFers, I'd probably start by calling krisFlyer, ask them if there's anyway to 'uncredit' the miles. And take it from there. (if they say 'no', perhaps follow up with Velocity for a second opinion.)
For SQ awards (on SQ metal) you can stopover at an SQ stopping point. This requires SQ to have fifth freedom rights for onward carriage. Usually the stopover will be SIN, but if your flight is to New York via FRA, you could stop in FRA. Or in Moscow on the ARN flight. you can also stop in one of SQ's gateways in Asia on a flight to the USA.curently on the phone to singapore airlines, trying to get them to explain to me what the stopover policy
so we ve agreed that its $100 USD for a stopover unless its a return flight you get one for free
this next bit has me stumped,
they said that the only place you can stop over for any flight is singapore,
surely this cant be right,
so I asked them, if I were flying from aus to london, obviously I have to transit in singapore, what other countries can I stop over in
this has really confused the staff, (its as though im not speaking english)
and another not making sense statement they made is that "If I was doing a round trip from Mel to Sinagpore and back, then I can add a stop over in for free in SINGAPORE!! "
does anyone have a link to stopovers in laymans terms please?
ive read this, and it doesnt really tell in detail you where you can stop,A must-read Point Hacks guide on maximising KrisFlyer redemptions by using free or additional stopovers. Details on offers, tips on miles, bonuses & more.www.pointhacks.com.au
thanks once again,For SQ awards (on SQ metal) you can stopover at an SQ stopping point. This requires SQ to have fifth freedom rights for onward carriage. Usually the stopover will be SIN, but if your flight is to New York via FRA, you could stop in FRA. Or in Moscow on the ARN flight. you can also stop in one of SQ's gateways in Asia on a flight to the USA.
For an Australia to Singapore return, there's nowhere you can stopover. Similarly for a MEL-SIN-TPE, the only place you can stopover in SIN.
For the stopover in DXB you'd need to be using a star partner award. And I don't actually believe the agent is correct. There are no star alliance partner flying Dubai to London heathrow. So you could take SQ as far as DXB, but you'd be stuck from there.thanks once again,
ive called them again and spoke to someone else, who looked up a dummy booking and has confirmed that I can stop over from MEL-SIN-HKG-TPE as part of the 1 free stop,
also as an example I asked would MEL-SIN-DXB-LHR be possible , and I got confirmation it is,
is there a list or a map that shows where you can stop?
