Singapore Airlines introduces KrisFlyer 'Miles + Cash' airfares

Singapore Airlines introduces KrisFlyer 'Miles + Cash' airfares

Singapore Airlines will allow frequent flyers to mix miles and cash when it comes to paying for SQ or SilkAir tickets online from today.

A minimum of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles is needed as your points component – and the more miles you have, the less money you need to pay, although the ratio can be adjusted during the booking to favour points or cash.

The move also opens up the ability to book "any available seat on any available flight" and across all classes of travel, the airline says, rather than working with a limited number of seats held for redemption of KrisFlyer miles.

From next year, members will also be able to use KrisFlyer miles to cover the cost of fuel surcharges and taxes for redemption tickets, as well as other items such as preferred seats.

Singapore Airlines is also introducing Saver awards on all flights, including First and Business Class on Boeing 777-300ER flights, as well as Suites and Business Class on Airbus A380 flights.

    Fantastic news! Would these "points + pay" bookings be Krisflyer miles accruable as well?

    There are two problems with this.

     

    The first problem is you can't credit the miles earned on these flights to different frequent flyer programs.

     

    The second problem is you can only earn miles on the part of the ticket that you didn't spend miles on to purchase.

    Don't see the second part as a problem. Miles are earned on the revenue part of the ticket.
