Singapore airline stopover rules
I need to fly on Singapore airline using points from IAH-STL-OOG-HNL-IAH. Can I pay the $100 stopover for STL and HNL?
I am trying to combine a wedding trip and vacation into one trip. I would like to use Singapore Airline’s points. I need to travel from IAH-STL-OGG-HNL-IAH. Is it possible to pay the $100 stopover fee for the STL and HNL legs? I could reverse the OGG-HNL legs if needed. I appreciate everyone’s input.
Welcome [USER=1704]@Dhudd[/USER] – unfortunately I think the answer is “no” based on [URL=’http://thepointsguy.com/2014/05/maximizing-singapore-airlines-krisflyer-partner-awards/’]this post by TPG’s Jason Steele[/URL]:
[B]One free stopover is permitted[/B] on round-trip awards, but three additional stopovers can be purchased for $100 each (other than flights within Europe, [U]or within/between the United States,[/U] Canada, Puerto Rico or U.S. Virgin Islands). Stopovers are defined as any layover over 24 hours, or anything over 4 hours within or between the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico or U.S. Virgin Islands. There are no free stopovers on one-way awards.
That article is 2 years old so it is possible things have changed, but I wouldn’t count on it.
