"Thanks, Chris, Kimshep and anon...I actually called SQ a couple of times and whilst they can see the seats as being available they cant book them either from Sin. It seems that as I am originating from Australia (Sydney/Melb makes no difference) rather than my home address is the "quota" proble..."
"Hi.Just wondering if anybody has come across this situation. I was doing a redemption booking for SQ Mel/CDG with both Advantage and Advantage Saver seats and was able to see that sees were available for immediate confirmation. After selecting Advantage one way and Saver return I was unable to ..."
"Qantas....easy....TPR did have a Krug promo for a while last year but that's well gone.Qantas change menus every season, TPR rarely and the TPR menu seems tied to the Book The Cook options and are rather limited. "
"Hi MNC.Just be aware the TPR is in Terminal 3 and flights to BKK generally leave from Terminal 2, so you will need to allow time to catch the bus or sky train. SQ in T2 also has a First lounge that you can use. The food in T2 is more local focused than that of TPR, The TPR compared to the Qant..."
"Sorry Guys, Alas Itek Siow has been dropped from BTC..The confit of duck with mushroom risotto was pretty average but huge.Can suggest the Laksa and Wonton Noodle Soup with Char Siew, The Pan fried chicken is simple and nice the steaks are always good but depend on the crew and how skilled they a..."
"For what its worth I was told that its all about cost and that a night flight into Aus is actually far cheaper in landing fees etc for the airlines and that SQ/CX pay and pay dearly to have the day flight. I don't know if what I was told is accurate."
"Hi all.I am just curious to others experience with the Star Alliance Gold Track benefit in Australia. I regularly fly out of Melbourne with SQ in Business or depending the hardware First and are given the Star Alliance Gold Track note. In Melbourne as I enter I am instructed to turn left (as ev..."
"Hey Jubbing. If for some reason they do not give you TPR pass keep your First boarding pass as this acts as your key to access the lounge and don't forget to allow time (if needed) to change terminals from 3 (TPR) to the terminal you are departing from - Taylor"
"Hi..I have a flight out in 2 weeks (Mel - Sin) and have been attempting to check the online menus so that I can better decide to "book the cook" or not. The menus are normally available 4 weeks in advance so I was surprised that 2 weeks out they are not available. After calling SQ a couple of t..."
"Hi… you can actually request a buggy to pick you up from the staff in the private room, it’s not advertised but is available (they only have one available). SQs boarding is particularly bad in Sin as they call 1st/Business/PPS and Gold at the same time (at least from my experi..."
"HI, Suziek. I was invited a couple of years back and with the then $5k per year plus signup cost the benefits dollar didn't stack up. The hotels that they can access are great but in 90% of the time it was ways cheaper to book hotels direct and use the benefits of tier membership that i already..."
" I am PPS with SQ and would suggest that QF has the better offering, definitely for lounge and on board catering etc. In my opinion SQ has really dropped the service levels and F&B quality in the past few years and are generally losing the market to other airlines. The food in the..."
"Hi Noelh - I was exiting via Melb in August and put with a family i didnt know and was tested with the family and child (including pram), so all up 4 people. I have in the past always been and seen testing done on a solo basis, so dont know what has changed.. "
