Changing Class on Singapore Award Ticket
I booked a Singapore Business Class ticket a couple months ago using KrisFlyer miles. Looks like some Suites Saver awards have opened up on the flight. Does anyone know if I am able to upgrade my ticket to Suites just using the difference in miles? Do I have to redeposit the miles (possible on Singapore?) and rebook forcing me to pay the fuel surcharges again?
Hi Kyle I think if you ring up they should be able to do the whole thing under a new ticket with just the change fee to be paid. I did similar last week and the agent got my number and called me back when it was all finalized (essentially tacking a first class leg on to a business leg)
The fee is $12 to do this online or $20 to over the phone, plus of course the difference in points. Taxes may be higher. FYI, SQ only charges $30 to re-deposit. If you make a change within 24 hours then there is a $75 fee.
Even if you had to re-book you would get the original surcharges back.
Okay excellent news. Thank you both!
Hi Kyle, I just did this today. The key is to call them. Also it appears taxes decreased so they didn’t charge me anything for the change. Good luck
